Heart's Desire & Social Change

Fr. Daniel Groody, C.S.C.

Meaningful conversations about the things that matter most to people: their purpose, identity, and direction in life. How can we find meaning and mission in a restless world? How can we make good and wise decisions? How do we find the path that leads us to discover the deepest desires of our hearts and our aspirations to make the world a better place? This podcast is designed to help you examine these questions and to explore the terrains of self-awareness, self-development, and self-gift. Hosted by Fr. Dan Groody, Vice President and Associate Provost at the University of Notre Dame. Sponsored by the Inspired Leadership Initiative at the University of Notre Dame.
