PRUDENCE AD MARTYDOM

About our drink:

Aberlour 16 Double Cask Bottling Note
Matured in two types of casks, the traditional oak and sherry oak casks and bottled at a slightly lower abv of 40% than previous editions, this 16 year old Aberlour is bursting with lush plum, raisin and even floral notes. A cracking Speyside malt.

About our gear:

Having a will.

Our topic:

1858 Grave matter is specified by the Ten Commandments, corresponding to the answer of Jesus to the rich young man: “Do not kill, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and your mother.” The gravity of sins is more or less great: murder is graver than theft. One must also take into account who is wronged: violence against parents is in itself graver than violence against a stranger.[1]

Rev 2:10 – Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Beware, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison so that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have affliction. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.[2]

Matt 10:33 – whoever denies me before others, I also will deny before my Father in heaven.[3]

General Instruction of the Roman Missal – Let’s make sure we know what we are doing

About our drink:

Woodford Reserve Double Oaked

An innovative approach to twice-barreled bourbon creates the rich and colorful flavor of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked. Uniquely matured in separate, charred oak barrels – the second barrel deeply toasted before a light charring – extracts additional soft, sweet oak character.

About our gear:

The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM)—in the Latin original, Institutio Generalis Missalis Romani (IGMR)—is the detailed document governing the celebration of Mass of the Roman Rite in what since 1969 is its normal form. Originally published in 1969 as a separate document, it is printed at the start of editions of the Roman Missal since 1970.

You can read the GIRM here

Our topic:

All of the baptized are obligated to make the liturgy as fruitful as possible. Knowing why we do what we do at Mass will help all of us fulfill that obligation. And knowing why we worship the way we do will also cause us to “[grow] constantly in holiness by conscious, active, and fruitful participation in the mystery of the Eucharist” (GIRM, 5).

About our drink:

Port Charlotte Heavily Peated

This high provenance, heavily-peated single malt was distilled from Islay-grown barley in 2012. A total of eight Islay farms came together to harvest the 2011 crop for Port Charlotte over a tempestuous summer. Each farmer had worked with us before, in Hunter Jackson, Ian Torrance, Ian MacKerrel, Raymond Fletcher, Mark French, Alistair Torrance, Raymond Stewart with father and son team Donald and Andrew Jones. Our community’s commitment to Islay is embodied here, where local barley is raised, distilled, matured and bottled only on Islay.

“Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.” Proverbs 10:4

O Glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it on honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my motto in life and in death. Amen.

Fr. Brian O’Brien joins us to talk about resilience

About our drink:

Jameson 18 year – A blend of whiskies aged in American bourbon barrels and European oak casks, before finally being finished in first fill bourbon barrels, this whiskey earned a score of 95 points from Wine Enthusiast.

Tasting Notes: Nose opens with spicy oak and toffee, which is followed by more toffee and fudge notes on the palate, as well as subtle hints of sherry. The bourbon cask finishing leads to a smooth, vanilla finish, brightened by previous notes of toffee and caramel.

Fortitude: American Resilience in the Era of Outrage by Dan Crenshaw

FORTITUDE is a no-nonsense advice book for finding the strength to deal with everything from menial daily frustrations to truly difficult challenges. More than that, it is a roadmap for a more resilient American culture. With meditations on perseverance, failure, and finding much-needed heroes, the book is the antidote for a prevailing “safety culture” of trigger warnings and safe spaces. Interspersed with lessons from history and psychology is Crenshaw’s own story of how an average American kid from the Houston suburbs went from war zones to the halls of Congress — and managed to navigate his path with a sense of humor and an even greater sense that, no matter what anyone else around us says or does, we are in control of our own destiny.

You’ve probably suffered from soggy boots after stepping into puddles of water. If this has happened to you, investing in a quality pair of rubber boots is, therefore, your safest bet and for good reason. While it is advisable to choose the perfect boots depending on the terrain, rubber boots serve as the “all-rounded” products you don’t want to miss in your collection.

Generally, rubber hunting boots are actually more than just a pair of waterproofed kicks. Their comprehensive aesthetics and features adopted combine to make up for quality hunting gear you don’t want to miss out on. In fact, these boots may just end up being the best piece of hunting gear any hunter can invest in. To get an in-depth perspective on why you need a pair, here are some valid reasons you want to consider.

1. Waterproof
2. Scent-free
3. Lightweight
4. Durable

12 year St. Bridget Devotion

About our drink:

We are pleased to announce the 2019 annual release of our Càirdeas series, Càirdeas Triple Wood Cask Strength. This exclusive bottling celebrates the Friends of Laphroaig and marks the annual Feis Ile festival on Islay.

The unique expression is a special triple maturation, first matured in ex-bourbon barrels, then in quarter casks and finally in European oak casks which previously held oloroso sherry. It is then barrier filtered and bottled at cask strength to create a punchy dram with Laphroaig’s signature richness of flavour and smoky taste.

Friends Only

On Islay there is a saying; We don’t make friends easily but the ones we do are for life. Launched in 1994, Friends of Laphroaig are fans, friends and followers of our distillery from all over the world. Never short of an opinion or two they help Laphroaig explore new expressions, attend tastings and sometimes even visit the distillery at Laphroaig’s home on Islay. To reward the loyalty of its following, each year we launch exclusive bottlings within the Càirdeas series.

Càirdeas means ‘friendship’ in Gaelic and, each year, a limited-edition bottling is crafted by distillery manager and fifth-generation Islay native, John Campbell, available exclusively to Friends of Laphroaig.

Two French inventors (Mayer and Delforge) patented in 1852 a forerunner of the French press. A patent was filed by a Frenchman, Marcel-Pierre Paquet dit Jolbert, officially published on August 5, 1924. In 1923 Ugo Paolini, an Italian, lodged patent documents relating to a tomato juice separator and he developed the idea of making a coffee pot with a press action and a filter. He assigned his 1928 patent to Italian designer Attilio Calimani and Giulio Moneta[1] who filed it in 1929.

Adoration – The history and what to do during the time.

About our drink:

Yamato was created by Aiko Importers after contacting one of the largest distilleries in the Yamanshi Prefecture and learning of excess barrels of Japanese Whisky that had not been assigned to a market and could be acquired. Aiko, under Japanses authority, was able to contract for this whisky, and developed the Yamato label to be bottled exclusively as a Small Batch Japanese Whisky. This whisky is a blend of malted barley Scotch whisky and selected Japanese grain that was grown in the Yamanashi Prefecture. The cold winters and fiery summers gives a rich flavour quality to the grain. The unique geographical location allows the whisky an intense maturation period, thereby losing a considerable amount as the “angel’s share”. To maintain the products natural character it is non-chill filtered. It is a blend of 3-8 year old whiskies aged in Mizunara Oak barrels.

Official Nose: Distinctly confident liquorice-bourbon notes with near perfect bitter-sweet balance; burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound. 

Official Taste: Outstanding richness and sheen to the enormous barley-oak sweetness; again there is big bourbon influences with all the associated liquorice and molasses sugar. The barley adds an extra dimension.

Official Finish: Long, wonderfully layered oak, offering variations on the sweet/dry theme, with some creamed toffee at the death.

About our gear:

Candle by the hour - Candle by the Hour draws it’s inspiration from the historical courting candle, which was popular among families in the 16th-18th centuries. Courting candles traditionally used during the courtship of a young woman by a suitor, where the suitor would know that it was time to say his goodbyes after the candle had burned down to the metal clip or base. Candle by the Hour provides a unique glimpse into the culture of past generations while providing a warm light in the contemporary home!

About our topic:

Fermentum – goes back as early as 120 AD. The rite of fermentum was a particle of Eucharistic bread transported from the bishop of one diocese to the bishop of another diocese. The latter would then consume the species at his next solemn Mass as a token of unity between the churches. It wasn’t viewed as a symbol but as a reality.

Improv Homeschooling

About our drink:

Japanese whiskey is one of five significant varieties in the world along with Scotch, Irish, Canadian, and American whiskeys. Sensi Whiskey hails from Yamanahsi Prefecture, the birthplace of Japanese Whiskey. A harmonious blend of malt and grain. It ages to perfection in Mizunara (Japenese Oak) barrels. Mizunara barrels give Sensi its distinctive flavor. It reminds some of sandalwood, a precious ingredient in Oriental incense used for aromatherapy, meditation, and spiritual ceremonies. To others, the taste will suggest a faint hint of coconut. So, we fused together rare whiskey, finest malt whiskeys from the rest of the world, and the highest quality pure spring water from Japan to create this remarkable blend. Find out more here.

Virtue of Humility

Adam goes off the deep end in the topic so we had to extend the episode.

The book we discussed is only $5.65 currently on Amazon.

"Humility of Heart" by Fr. Cajetan Mary da Bergamo

“In Paradise, there are many Saints who never gave alms on earth: their poverty justified them. There are many Saints who never mortified their bodies by fasting, or wearing hair shirts: their bodily infirmities excused them. There are many Saints too who were not virgins: their vocation was otherwise. But in Paradise, there is no Saint who was not humble.” – Fr. Cajetan Mary da Bergamo

Twelve Steps of Humility

Step 1. A first step is taken when one consciously obeys all of God’s commandments, never ignoring them but always holding within himself a fear of God in his heart.

Step 2. The second step is achieved when one thinks not about pleasing himself but instead follow the injunction of the Lord.

Step 3. The third step is reached when out of love of God, one obediently submits to a superior in imitation of the Lord.

Step 4. The fourth step is achieved when one, under obedience, patiently and quietly endures all thing that are inflicted on him.  It should make no difference whether the trials are painful, unjust or even completely beyond his understanding; he should neither tire nor give up.

Step 5. The fifth step is reached when one humbly discloses to his superior all the evil thoughts in his heart, as well as those faults and evil acts he has actually committed.

Step 6. To achieve the sixth step one must without qualms accept all that is crude and harsh; at all times he considers himself a poor and worthless workman.

Step 7. The seventh step is attained when one not only confesses that he is an inferior and common wretch, but believes it to his very core.  He must be willing to humble himself.

Step 8. One reaches the eighth step of humility when he does only that which is demanded by the common rule of his seniors.

Step 9. The ninth step can be achieved when one, practicing silence, only speaks when asked a question.

Step 10. The tenth step is climbed when one restrains himself from undue laughter and frivolity.

Step 11. To reach the eleventh step one must speak gently, without jests, but simply, seriously, tersely, rationally and softly.

Step 12. The final step is attained only when one can at all times show humility not only in his appearance and actions, but also in his heart.
