Join world-renowned liturgical theologian Fr. John Baldovin, SJ in exploring the richness of two of our most vital liturgical seasons: Advent and Christmas. An essential and inspiring audio course for pastors, deacons, and laypersons alike.
Baldovin captures the spirit of Advent through his keen observations on its liturgical prayers, Scripture readings, music, and poetry. You’ll explore the three great figures of Advent: The Blessed Virgin Mary, John the Baptist, and the Prophet Isaiah. One presentation focuses entirely on the two great Marian feasts of Advent: the Immaculate Conception and the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
This course encourages you to reflect on Christian hope in our lives as well as on the timeless messages preached by John the Baptist and by the prophets of the Old Testament.
In the lectures on Christmas, Baldovin invites you to celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus as well as a number of feasts associated with his Incarnation. Through his presentation of liturgical prayers, Scripture readings, and Christmas poetry and music, you’ll develop a deeper appreciation for the “Holy Night” on which our Savior was born. You will also explore the other two Masses of Christmas day and the celebrations that follow.
Join Fr. Baldovin to bring new meaning to the sacred seasons of Advent and Christmas today.

Fascinating, engaging and spirituality edifying
In this two-part series, Fr. Baldovin traces the history, theology, and beauty of the liturgical seasons of Advent and Christmas. I find his presentation style lively, well-organized, and insightful. He uses vivid examples to illustrate his points. Whether you are seeking a deeper personal appreciation of these two seasons or you are seeking insights to share with others in ministry, I highly recommend this series. Among the many books and recordings I have encountered on the liturgy, I find Fr. Baldovin's presentations most fulfilling.
