Rooted: Rediscover the Jesse Tree This Advent is a new video series hosted by Dr. Scott Hefelfinger, associate professor of theology at the Augustine Institute. Premiering December 3 on FORMED, the Augustine Institute’s on-demand streaming platform to which Saint Agnes subscribes, presents the historical tradition of the Jesse Tree in a modern way, relevant and applicable to the daily, ordinary lives of adults today. Each of the 22 episodes is about 7 minutes long.

“I first encountered the Jesse Tree devotional with my own family, and it quickly became a regular part of our Advent traditions. But as I’ve prayed with this devotion over the years, its relevance for me in my adult life has also become clear. And so, I love that the Jesse Tree can bear rich fruit in the lives of the faithful at any age,” noted Dr. Hefelfinger.

Rooted will be available on FORMED alongside the other high-quality Catholic content subscribers have come to trust since 2015. It will be streaming from December 3 through December 24, 2023l
