The Poco a Poco Podcast with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Nov 30, 2022

Sometimes we lose hope, wondering, does He really want to come and be with us in our sickness, addiction, our family brokenness, our difficulty, our struggles, or anxieties? 

Advent is a time that God speaks a definitive word into our exiles, "Yes, I do"—He comes and desires to be with us.

This episode is the first part of the series on Emmanuel: An Advent Devotional which talks about what Advent is all about. A reminder that God is pursuing us and that in our brokenness, He comes to be with us.

If you want to follow along with our current advent series, you can get your copy of Emmanuel: An Advent Devotional (by Fr. Angelus Montgomery, CFR, and Sr. Karolyn Nunes, FSGM,) at
