Norbertine fraters (seminarians), brothers, and priests of St. Norbert Abbey share and discuss their faith journey and call to constant conversion lived out together in community. As marathon runners themselves, Fr. Jordan Neeck, O. Praem., and Frater Johnathan Turba, O. Praem., serve as primary hosts of the podcast, delightfully and unabashedly sharing their Catholic faith, relevant topics, a bit of abbey humor, and of course, some of their conversations that occur while running together. Join them in “running the race” that God has set before us.
Podcast Episode 046: Hermitage vs. Quarantine
Norbertine life has a cloistered aspect, and even a time for hermitage. But a hermitage period and a period of quarantine, like we have all been experiencing in various ways these past months, are two very different things. Listen as our podcast co-hosts reflect on their hermitage experiences, staying at home, and finding God amidst these difficult times.
Podcast Episode 045: Made for Community
During a time when we are so physically separated from one another, community is more important than ever. Even in religious life, there is a new dynamic to the current situation we all find ourselves in. But the reality for us all still remains: God made us for community.
Podcast Episode 044: Trusting God
Sometimes in life, whether it’s a new school year or tackling a large project, we just need to start. Other times there’s a need to do a little planning before diving-in. In either case, we are called to cooperate with God, but we can’t begin to do that until we act. So what is all of this really about? If we’re being honest, it boils down to trusting God. Even amidst struggle, uncertainty, and challenges, we must turn again and again to God. | More "Canons on the Run": www.norbertines.org/podcast
Podcast Episode 043: Only for Today, Part 10
In this final installment of the “Only for Today” series, our co-hosts grapple with a short yet challenging statement: Only for today, I will have no fears. What is that we are afraid of? Is it a fear of things going wrong, or is it a fear to enjoy what is beautiful, to believe in goodness? As strange as it may sound, the latter may actually be what we are all afraid of in some way. | More "Canons on the Run": www.norbertines.org/podcast
Podcast Episode 042: Man on Fire Interview
Former St. Norbert College President Thomas Kunkel wrote a recently-published, compelling biography on St. Norbert titled Man on Fire. Capturing the life of this profound yet often over-looked saint was no small task. Our podcast co-hosts had the exciting opportunity to be a part of an interview with the author to discuss the writing process, and of course to talk about St. Norbert himself. | More "Canons on the Run": www.norbertines.org/podcast
Podcast Episode 041: Only for Today, Part 9
Sometimes we are so caught up in thinking about faith that we don’t realize how little attention we are giving to our heart in feeling our faith. We may even lose sight of accepting the profound love that God pours over us each and every day. It is when we remember to feel that love that we begin to fully participate in our relationship with God. | More "Canons on the Run": www.norbertines.org/podcast

Continues to be inspirational
I’ve listened to every episode and even though they don’t upload super frequently, there is a tremendous amount of spiritual fruit in each episode.
Canons on the Run is not just banter. Each episode focuses on their growth in Christ through community life and how that can be applied to anyone’s walk with Jesus.
I think back to their episodes often and find them as a source of encouragement.
Fr. Jordan and Frater (sp.?) Jonathan reinforce the universal teachings of the Catholic faith and you are apt to hear the same expression of faith from your parish Priest as these two Norbertines. It will strengthen your faith that the Church is catholic, because it’s the Holy Spirit that makes it that way by speaking through it’s members.
And you will form a fondness for this short prayer:
St. Norbert and St. Augustine, Pray for Us :)
