A toast to Connor Hall, the Remarkable 2, and the Fruits of Prayer

About our drink:

THANK YOU TO CONNOR HALL FOR SENDING US, Westward American Single Malt Whisky!

Westward American Single Malt

Single Malt, reimagined. Born of the unique culture, climate and abundant resources of the Northwest, this elevated American original demonstrates our craftsmanship and creativity. Our distinct, rich, and brazen American Single Malt  — the pinnacle of whiskey. Created from locally malted barley, brewed with ale yeast for exceptional flavor, and matured to perfection in new, lightly charred American Oak barrels right here in Oregon, where our hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters are the ideal environment to raise a world class whiskey.

About the Topic:

Fruits of Prayer from the Council of Trent

The Council of Trent was called to counter the Protestant Reformation by unambiguously affirming the distinctive truths of the Catholic faith. To disseminate these truths, the Council of Trent commanded a Catechism to be written. Composed under the supervision of St. Charles Borromeo and promulgated by St. Pope St. Pius V, its value as an authoritative exposition of the Catholic faith has only increased through the centuries.

While originally intended for priests to use alongside the Sacred Scriptures in defending the faith, its straightforward and logical explanation of Catholic doctrinal and moral teachings makes it a useful reference and guide for the laity more than 400 years after it was first published. Today, it continues to enlighten souls who seek to discern between true and false teachings.

This edition is the definitive translation of the Catechism of the Council of Trent from the original Latin. The book is divided into four parts which explain, respectively, the Articles of Faith, the Seven Sacraments, the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer. There are also appendices on the Immaculate Conception, Papal Infallibility, Christian Marriage and on Frequent and Daily Communion.

We have our good friend, Andrew Pudewa, join us to talk about the moral imagination, martyrdom, and fear.

About our drink:

Corner Creek 10 Year

Corner Creek has quietly been around as a “modern” brand since the late 1980’s. During this time the brand has passed hands among various organizations, including Kentucky Bourbon Distillers (aka Willett), and currently being owned by Corner Creek Distillery Co. located in Crestwood, Kentucky. One thing has been consistent throughout the brand’s life, it has never been disclosed where the bourbon is sourced from. For the majority of the brand’s life, it has only sold as a no age statement (NAS) bourbon. This changed with the introduction of the non-chill filtered Corner Creek 10 Year.

About the Topic:

Raising a son has always been tough, but boys are under attack today more than ever. The ordinary struggles, challenges, and perils that comes with raising boys are magnified by a multi-billion-dollar industry targeting our sons for porn addiction, a media that demeans and undermines the Catholic faith, and educators and culture leaders who treat masculinity as a disease or a psychosis. And too many dads feel frustrated, ill-equipped, or just unsure about stepping into their role of parenting pre-teen sons.

We talk about it in depth with Mike in this week’s episode.

About our gear:

Kreg Pocket hole jigs

Kreg Joinery™ is an incredibly fast, strong, and simple way of joining wood. It essentially involves drilling a hole at an angle into one workpiece, and then joining it to a second workpiece with self-tapping screws.

While it may seem simple, the technique is revolutionary because of how easy it is. When you’re done assembling, there’s no need to leave your joint clamped up for hours, glue is completely optional, and there are no frustrating alignment problems to deal with. Kreg Joints™ are so simple they can be built in just a few easy steps – it’s as easy as drill, drive, and you’re done!

About the Topic:

It’s good to look back on some of your life decisions and see how those decisions either hurt or helped yourself, your family, and your spiritual life. Sometimes, you have to “kill” an action, habit, or thought in order for a new habit to be born. Sin makes us blind so it is important to reflect on what we are doing in our lives and how we are building up the Kingdom of God.

About our drink:

ARDBEG SCORCH COMMITTEE RELEASE

The celebration of Ardbeg Day is held annually on the final Saturday of Islay’s Festival of Music and Malt and stands as a celebration of all things Ardbeg. This year the celebration is set to be entirely online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be the second year the festival has been virtual.

“This year will be my first Ardbeg Day ever: a baptism of fire! It’s a shame we Ardbeggians can’t enjoy it together in person, but the online event is shaping up to be tremendous fun,” Ardbeg’s Distillery Manager Colin Gordon said. “With a whole virtual world to explore, including fantasy inns, campfire tales, medieval feasts and live tastings, there’s plenty for people to be excited about this year.”

The Committee Release of Ardbeg Scorch will be available to buy from Ardbeg Embassies, whisky specialists, online retailers and from the Distillery Visitor Center on May 1 for $139. The General Release will be available on June 1 at a price point of around $120. Official tasting notes can be found below.

  • Color – Bright brushed gold
  • Nose – On the nose, frighteningly intense aromas of soot and smoke lie in wait. Hints of aniseed and fragrant patchouli interlace with bold notes of quenched steel and saddle soap. With a drop of water, herbal top notes of briarwood, sage and pine wisp their way to the fore.
  • Taste – Take a sip and experience layer upon layer of flavor. An oily mouthfeel grips the senses. Billowy clouds of sweet smoke and dragon charred oak permeate the palate, while grilled fare and black licorice weave between notes of medicinal lozenge.
  • Finish – A long and heroic finale, with a subtle tarry aftertaste. A finish that will drag on, well into its happily ever after.

Fitness and Virtue with Pat Flynn – Episode 1

God didn’t just create us as spirits and then shackle us with bodies. As Catholics, we believe that the body and soul are intimately woven together, so it’s important that we work on both.

Our friend Pat Flynn has written and spoken a lot on the virtues of fitness. He also has written several books, including an Amazon #1 seller: Introduction to Kettlebells: A Minimalist’s Guide to Blasting Fat and Boosting Muscle. A writer, entrepreneur, and “re-converted” Catholic, Pat focuses his efforts on helping others find happiness and wholeness through fitness, philosophy, and faith. And now we’re teaming up with him to host a patron-exclusive class on Fitness and Virtue!

Throughout this course, Pat will discuss the role physical fitness plays in our lives and offer key insights on how to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle—and how to avoid the spiritual pitfalls of vanity and self-absorption.

And, no, we didn’t bring Pat in to preach to a choir of Catholic gym-rats. This program is for all our listeners, regardless of your fitness level. If you’re celebrating the extra steps when you walk down the driveway to take out the trash… you’ll be inspired by Pat’s course. If you’re looking to turn that 6-pack into an 8-pack, this course can help you summit that mountain too. We encourage all of our patrons to take us up on this exclusive content!

Interested? Well listen to this first episode for free and then join us over on Patreon for access to the whole course!

We’ll be making this study available for free to patrons of our show who contribute $10+ per month. As a member of the Council of Man, you’ll also unlock exclusive benefits like monthly zoom calls, free merch, and extra content!

Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit

About our drink:

Balvenie American Oak Cask

Inspired to produce an even fruitier, sweeter Balvenie, Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie had the bright idea to import Virgin Oak barrels from Kentucky. After deep toasting them at The Balvenie Cooperage they were filled with Balvenie aged in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a delectably complex whisky with notes of candied fruit, coconut and delicate vanilla.

1830 The moral life of Christians is sustained by the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These are permanent dispositions which make man docile in following the promptings of the Holy Spirit.[1]

West Cork Irish Whiskey

A triple distilled, single malt whiskey made with Irish grain and natural spring water.

About the Topic:

Brain death (BD), the declaration of death by neurological criteria, is an established medicolegal practice in the USA and many countries worldwide. In 1968, the Harvard Medical School Ad Hoc Committee introduced BD by defining (in the opening paragraph of its report) “irreversible coma as a new criterion for death.” BD has been a controversial issue ever since. That brain-dead donors are the primary source of organ transplants has further intensified the controversy, as evidenced by the increasing number of lawsuits challenging the legitimacy of BD. A well-known example is the McMath case.

About our drink:

Torabhaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Torabhaig is another of the traditional farm steading-turned distillery projects cropping up across Scotland in recent years, though its output is significantly larger than many of its peers.

Skye’s second distillery is configured to produce a traditional island-style malt whisky – medium-weight and medium-peated with a long fermentation in wooden washbacks and plenty of copper interaction providing a fruit-forward spirit.

Every drop of its spirit will be earmarked for bottling as a single malt to begin with, though expect to see some siphoned off for blending further down the line.

About our gear:

N/A

About the Topic:

[From the Summa] As stated above (I-II:55:3), it is essential to virtue to incline man to good. Now the good of man is to be in accordance with reason, as Dionysius states (Div. Nom. iv). Hence human virtue is that which inclines man to something in accordance with reason. Now temperance evidently inclines man to this, since its very name implies moderation or temperateness, which reason causes. Therefore temperance is a virtue.

About Our Guest:

A native of Louisiana, Fr. Aquinas Guilbeau, O.P., entered the Dominican Province of St. Joseph in 2005. After several years of pastoral work in New York City, Fr. Guilbeau began doctoral studies in moral theology at the University of Fribourg, where he completed a dissertation on St. Thomas Aquinas’s doctrine of the common good. In addition to his teaching, Fr. Guilbeau serves as senior editor of Aleteia.org (English edition). He is also the current prior of the Dominican House of Studies.

April 9, 2021

 

FESTIVALS.png

Josef Pieper strikes again! We talk about his book, In Tune with the World, and what ingredients Pieper says are required to have a true festival.

About our drink:

Octomore 11.1

Exposing the structural brilliance of our pure, unadulterated Octomore super heavily peated spirit, our 11.1 edition is powerful, understated and vibrant. Underpinned with a delicate balance of smoke and sweet vanilla from the ex-American oak casks, this single malt has spent just 5 years in contact with fresh first fill wood. The presence of peat on the palate is huge, and yet is incredibly balanced with clean fruit and floral notes. Distilled in 2014 from the 2013 harvest of 100% Scottish barley then filled into active ex-American oak, this high provenance, high peat single malt is a fitting embodiment of how quality ingredients demand less time to reach maturity.

About our gear:

In this stimulating and still-timely study, Josef Pieper takes up a theme of paramount importance to his thinking – that festivals belong by rights among the great topics of philosophical discussion. As he develops his theory of festivity, the modern age comes under close and painful scrutiny. It is obvious that we no longer know what festivity is, namely, the celebration of existence under various symbols

Pieper exposes the pseudo-festivals, in their harmless and their sinister forms: traditional feasts contaminated by commercialism; artificial holidays created in the interest of merchandisers; holidays by coercion, decreed by dictators the world over; festivals as military demonstrations; holidays empty of significance. And lastly we are given the apocalyptic vision of a nihilistic world which would seek its release not in festivities but in destruction.

Formulated with Pieper’s customary clarity and elegance, enhanced by brilliantly chosen quotations, this is an illuminating contribution to the understanding of traditional and contemporary experience.

About the Topic:

– Festivals can only arise from a working day (fast before the feast).

– It has to be leisurely – a realm of activity that is meaningful in itself.

– Ingredients of a festival:

– Play or leisurely

– Contemplation (“the simple intuition of reason. The mind’s eye resting on whatever manifests itself.”)

– Phenomenon of wealth (Existential richness – aka abundance)

– Affirmation – (Pieper says affirmation is the substance of festivity.) Festivals are impossible to the “naysayers”. The more money he has, and above all the more leisure, the more desperate is this impossibility to him.

– Joy (Joy is the response of a love receiving what he loves). A festival becomes a true festivity only when man affirms the goodness of his existence by offering a response of joy. 

– In concrete form. In reality.

– Public in nature; affairs of the community

VIRTUES-IN-THE-JOB-MARKET.png

What are some good practices for interviewing for a job and leaving a current job? Let’s discuss over a dram of Calumet 14

About our drink:

Calumet 14 year Bourbon

Calumet Farm Single Rack Black 14 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey represents both the prestigious nature and hard-earned quality of a premium Kentucky straight bourbon. It is painstakingly crafted from extremely small batches of 19 barrels. All barrels used are aged in a single, center cut rack from the ideal maturation location and conditions inside the rick house. This expression of the Calumet Farm Bourbon family is a true convergence of craftsmanship and flavor. It is Non-Chill Filtered for added depth of character and color.

This Bourbon is carefully distilled at Western Spirits Beverage Company distillery, United States.

About our gear:

What are the things you like most in your office?

About the Topic:

The topic is focused from the lens of Prudence:

Prudence is the first cardinal virtue for a reason; it is the virtue that teaches us knowledge of reality. From prudence, we gain the ability to discern what is good in every circumstance and to choose the right actions. St. Thomas Aquinas quotes Aristotle that “prudence is right reason applied to action” 

Foresight, a sub-virtue of prudence, is the ability to see into the future and direct actions toward an end. Foresight allows us to rightly order present actions to a good end, knowing that we can never fully predict the future.

Shrewdness, another sub-virtue of prudence. It means to be able to form both a correct and a quick opinion. This is done by developing the mental insight to read between the lines or finding the middle term in a demonstration. The Latin is solertia, which means to have a clear-sighted objectivity, even a dispassionate observance of situations. The one who is shrewd is agile and quick-witted, able to put the pieces together, both from memory and from learning, into the big picture.

When Looking for a Job:

– There are only certain things you can control:

– Be praying for your potential boss. Be praying for your current boss and your coworkers.

– Ask your Guardian Angel for guidance and assistance

– The way you dress

– Your online presence

– Research the employer

– Think of ways that would set you apart from other candidates

– Understand that the interview begins the moment you set foot on the premise

– Keep answers brief and concise

– Be prepared for questions: “Tell us something about yourself”

– Thank the interviewer for their time

Telling your boss you are leaving:

– Have a good transition plan 

– Be prepared for a counteroffer

– Be prepared to be walked out of the building right then

– Don’t make the announcement on social media too early 

– Make sure to thank your boss and coworkers 

Don’t let the norms of others dictate your values and behavior.
