Yes, Advent. I wanted to be the first to say that word on our blog, at least this year.
You may already know Fr. Robert Barron, professor of systematic theology at Mundelein Seminary in Chicago, popular speaker, and author of many books (my favorite is "The Strangest Way"). Soon he’ll be a contributor to our new "Culture" section in the magazine. As part of his Word on Fire Catholic ministries (a kind of multimedia evangelization project) he is hard at work on "The Catholicism Project," about which more here.
In any event, he also features on his Word on Fire website, some terrific videos. Here’s one, a little early, on Advent. Check it out here. It’ll certainly be the only thing on the web linking the Coming of Christ and "Run, Lola, Run."
