French Benedictine Church Brewmiesters

French Benedictine Church Brewmiesters   A Holy Passtime Although most monks are brewmiesters, the  most celebrated liquid “Holy Spirits” are two French Church creations – Benedictine and Chartruese. Both share the same basic m.o. Secret recipie. Combo of herbs,plants,leaves honey,sugar,alcohol,old sandals, etc. Starts out as a “medicinal”beverage. Recipie lost in the mists of time. Then, miracle of miracles, Rediscovered.! Big money builds a big brewery. Hotch is still produced by monks from the original recipie. But, bowing(in a Holy way, bien sur) to the demands of the secular world, the booze bros produce “wimped down” versions of the original. Allowing them to buy more candles, new sandals, and generally “OM” away their non-brew moments.

The Church Helps make Moves

The Church Helps make Moves Pope Benedict XVI is the religious head of the Roman Catholic Room. He considers the appointments and demotions of the clergy all in excess of the world. In the U.S., the clergy has observed fantastic happiness and sorrow. It is therefore, most pleasant to see not just 1 but two American priests elevated to the place of cardinals in the Roman Catholic Room. The Room herself has been attempting tough to go down the all-encompassing and progressive road for a while now. Any transfer they make in that effort will be observed in a good light, by most. Modifications Are Welcome If we consider these appointments as the initial step toward a far more progressive cathedral, possibly there are a handful of much more alterations in … Read entire article »

Silk Scarves For A Church

Silk Scarves For A Church Church events for example christenings, naturally, tend to be periods while girls want to wear in all their finery, therefore in the event that you are going to choose a silk scarf or shawl, in that case it is intelligent to choose the best that you could pay for.

Church is More Than Expected

Church is More Than Expected For the less common church attendee, those who tend to go twice a year for Easter and Christmas services, church is much more than a two day affair.  It is a serious religious practice that not only occupies the Sunday of each week but works as a guide to the moral compass, and helps people better understand themselves and the world they live in.  It is a group of people they share a common bond with and can rely on in times of need.  It is a bevy of citizens who work to help the less fortunate, speak the word of God to those who may be lead astray, and worship their lord and savior to thank Him for all the knowledge and blessing … Read entire article »

Catholic Church Sexual Abuses

Catholic Church Sexual Abuses To say that the Catholic Church is going through hell might be an overstatement; however, maybe purgatory isn’t all that easy either. Pope Benedict issued an apology to victims of sex abuse in Ireland on Saturday, and announced an investigation into parts of the Catholic Church in the country while saying that the abusers would have to answer to God. Well, that’s not all that may happen here. There is such a thing as KARMA and civil law here on earth to which the church (any church) is not exempt. In a lengthy letter to the Irish faithful, he addressed the victims and their families: “You have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry. I know that nothing can undo the wrong you have endured.” Benedict acknowledged … Read entire article »
