LIVING BEYOND SUNDAY: MAKING YOUR HOME A HOLY PLACE

Our new book is available for pre-order from Ascension Press!

“I love this book. It provides wise counsel with beautiful simplicity. So, if you are looking to safeguard your family life from the wiles of the enemy and encourage your spouse and children to become the saints God is calling them to be, this is a book for you.” – Fr Gregory Pine

Home life can be difficult and busy, and it’s easy to get distracted from the point of it all: raising a family of saints.

In Living Beyond Sunday: Making Your Home a Holy Place, two married couples share what has helped them make their homes a place of encounter with God–a place where saints are being made.

About our drink:

Wyoming Whiskey Double Cask

A whiskey gets its color and character from the cask in which it ages and matures. This Double Cask whiskey goes through the process twice. The first five years of maturation in a new charred oak barrel makes it a bourbon. That bourbon then experiences secondary maturation in decades-old casks seasoned by Pedro Ximenez sherry that adds a touch of sweetness, and yields a smooth and impressively complex spirit.

TASTING NOTES

COLOR: copper to mahogany

NOSE: autumnal notes of dried apricot, mission fig, and dried date

PALATE: stewed prune and black raisin, with hints of candied orange peel; vanilla butter cream and toffee underneath

MOUTHFEEL: rich, sticky cinnamon roll with raisins and spice

About the Topic:

Aquinas outlines four conditions that must concur in order to ensure that our prayer requests are granted.

  1. It must be necessary for our salvation
  2. It must be for ourselves
  3. It must be done piously
  4. It must be done with perseverance

We talk about this with seminarian Robert Williams from the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma.
