About Us

Dan Ruff, S.J. is a Jesuit Catholic priest working in Campus Ministry at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. Through this podcast, Fr. Ruff shares his thoughts on searching for meaning and hope in a world that, at times, seems to lack both. With a Doctorate in Liturgy, a love of storytelling, and a passion for the performing arts, Fr. Ruff wishes to show that spirituality is a noble pursuit welcome to people of all walks of life—you just have to be willing to ask the big questions and search for satisfying answers. This podcast is not only for Catholics and the Jesuit-educated but for all those searching for answers. As Jesus says when he heals the ten lepers, Fr. Ruff echoes: “Where are the other nine?”
