The Millennial Monk


Dan Horan has certainly had an interesting life story.  He started out as a photographer and is now a Franciscan Friar of the Order of Friars Minor.  That’s right, we’ve got a monk on our show today!

Dan now writes extensively about Franciscan theology, philosophy and spirituality.  Though he’s deeply immersed in a rich tradition, he believes that it contains a great deal that is relevant and which can speak to us today.  As such, he is passionate about engaging the millennial generation on this topic.  He’s written books(Dating God: Live and Love in the Way of St. Francis, Francis of Assisi and the Future of Faith: Exploring Franciscan Spirituality and Theology in the Modern World, Franciscan Spirituality for the 21st Century: Selected Reflections from the Dating God Blog and Other Essays, Franciscan Priesthood: The Possibility of Franciscan Presbyters According to the Rule and Tradition), delivers lectures and workshops, and portrays the contemporary application for these ancient truths.

The energy he emits for his faith and beliefs help us understand the accessibility and importance they truly embody.  Thanks for joining us today – we hope you’ll enjoy meeting The Millennial Monk!
