Chocolaty Cistercian Cuisine

…you can see that the inscription on the pastry in the picture to our left reads “St. Bernard, Ora Pro Nobis!” Apologies for the lateness of this post, since St. Bernard’s feast was last Wednesday. For the rest of the menu delightfully ingested at the Swaim household on the memorial of the honey-tongued doctor (not coincidentally also the patron saint of beekeepers), head over to our other intrepid literary venture at CultCultureCultivation. For a prayer of St. Bernard of Clairvaux to the shoulder wound of Christ, visit the slightly less intrepid Apoloblogology.

And while you’re surfing the auxiliary musings of our team of crack(ed) investigative journalists, you might find it edifying to snag a print copy of the latest National Catholic Register, where our very own Archdiocesan Vocations Director (and M E R E L Y * C A T H O L I C charter member) Fr. Kyle Schnippel shares a thought or two on vocations. Bravo Father, and as I’ve said before, “remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

That’s all the self-promoting varia we’ll fling at you for the time being. Now it’s off to a luau in honor of St. Rose of Lima…
