About our drink:

Side Eye Saison from The Nook 

Golden orange in color with minimal bitterness. A balanced and refreshing beer with just enough peppery and spicy notes to have you going back for another sip. This highly carbonated beer might have snobs calling it “effervescent.” If anyone questions why you’re getting another one, feel free to give them the side-eye.

About the Topic:

This week we record while at the fifth annual Catholic Man Show Campout at Clear Creek Abbey

Mortification – How to better understand it’s purpose. Why men should be doing it. How to begin a fasting regiment. We discuss this and more in this week’s episode with Fr. Nesbit.

About Clear Creek Abbey:

Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Having been erected as a simple priory in 2000, Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010. The community currently counts 50 monks.

Like the other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey, having devoted itself from the outset wholly to the service of God in the hidden life, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. By virtue of their vocation, the monks devote themselves to God alone in silence and in solitude, in constant prayer, and willing penance.

Visit their website or donate as they plan to build an abbey to last for 1,000 years.
