Take some time this Advent season to listen to the latest episode from the "Echoes from the Bell Tower" podcast series (above), hosted by Br. Joel Blaize and Br. Kolbe Wolniakowski. The two young monks interview Fr. Columba Kelly, Fr. Harry Hagan, and Fr. Jeremy King about the chant tradition and how chant is used during Advent. In the background are plenty of chant selections by the monks of Saint Meinrad. The entire podcast is about 20 minutes. Give your spirit a lift this Advent -- open the doors to the monastery from afar and allow the chant to waft over you. I believe you'll find it both informative and inspiring!
