Father Dan's reflections are refreshing and inspiring. They encourage me to take time out of my hectic life and remind me of God's beauty manifested in nature and people. As a proud alumna of St. Bonaventure University myself, listening to these reflections is a great way to stay connected to the spiritual richness that the community offers to its people. Highly recommend!
Father Dan not only helps me keep the faith, but also see the faith in everything and all things that come my way and that I come to. I look forward to every podcast and often revisit others while I'm waiting!
