About our drink:

Glendalough Distillery 7 year old Mizunara Finish Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Glendalough’s Mizunara 7-year single malt is vivid, but delicate with seamless depth. It is vibrant, fruity, and floral on the nose, enjoying a luxuriously smooth mouthfeel with notes of dark chocolate orange, sandalwood and cinnamon synonymous with Mizunara whiskeys. This unique whiskey benefits from an exceptionally long finish of toasted oak and oriental spices, with the dark chocolate lingering even longer.

About the Topic:

What should you say (or not say!) at an Irish pub? What was the relationship of Protestants and Catholics in the early 1900’s? How has that shaped the way Ireland is today? We have one of our favorite guests on The Catholic Man Show this week, Fr. Sean Donovan to talk about this and our upcoming pilgrimage to Ireland.

What’s your holy hour look like? 

There’s a common thread among thousands of formerly sinful people we now call Saints.

They had a relationship with God.

Which then inspired them to ‘set the world on fire’ as Catherine of Sienna put it.

But, more specifically, it meant they put in the time.

They sat with the Lord. Spoke with Him. Listened to Him.


They unveiled their hearts and wounds and problems to Him.

They offered him thanks and gratitude.

They left their sufferings with Him on the altar.

They begged for His help.

My question to you: are you putting in the time?

I’m not talking about time to just talk at Him or sit in church making a mental grocery list. I’m talking about time to build a consistent, honest relationship. Time to speak, and time to listen.

Whether you want to pray a daily holy hour or hit up adoration once a week, I have a guide here from the makers of Exodus 90 specifically about praying a Holy Hour.

Inside, you’ll find a simple breakdown that shows you how to structure your time with the Lord.
