Fr. Nesbit, Benedictine Monk from Clear Creek Abbey, joins us to discuss the topic of mortification.

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.

About our drink:

Pikesville Rye

First produced in Maryland in the 1890s, Pikesville Rye, along with the rest of the once-booming Maryland Rye industry, was shuttered by Prohibition. The brand reemerged after Prohibition and became the last standing Maryland Rye, as the rest of the industry’s production had ceased. Now produced in Kentucky from extra-aged barrels stored in prime warehouse locations, Heaven Hill Distillery keeps this historic Maryland mark alive.

It was Dave’s turn to pick the topic. He said the day before recording, “I’ve been asking God what he wants us to talk about this week and I feel like He is just wanting us to chat with no agenda.” So…. That’s what we did.

About our drink:

Wyoming Whiskey Double Cask

This Limited Edition Double Cask Wyoming whiskey is aged in a most unique maturation environment in the whiskey world. Kirby has a sub-zero cold winter and desert blistering hot summer weather to make the juice dance in and out of the oak cradle. That environment is tough on people, but it’s extreme have great potential for the whiskey aging. The Double Cask Limited Edition starts with the same wheated bourbon used in the Small Batch and Single Barrels. The mashbill is 68% Corn, 20% Wheat, 12% Malted Barley, aged for five years in new, charred white oak barrels and finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks before bottling at 50% ABV.

The whiskey is not chill filtered and has a dark rich mahogany color in my glass evidencing the romantic dance in a sherry cask for finishing. The nose bursts with sweet dried fruits and candied fig jelly. The Wyoming Whiskey Double Cask has a wonderful aroma which I could nose for hours.

On the palate I experience a saucy, rich and syrupy juice reminding me of butter sautéed mulberries with hints of vanilla, dried raisins and orange candy sprinkles. The finish is intensely warm and long with notes of oak, more dried fruit, fig jelly and fresh-ground cinnamon spice.This whiskey is just plain good and it’s exciting for me to see this smaller distillery growing.

The Catholic Man Show - Intro to the Devout Life

September 6, 2021

Devout-life.png

We want to grow in holiness. We want to grow in our relationship with our Lord. But how do we do it? Let’s see what the spiritual master, St. Francis de Sales, has to say.

About our drink:

Templeton Rye 10 Year

Iowa- Templeton Rye 10 Year Reserve, a limited production, is a true expression of what American Rye can become with each release bottled from a hand-selected single barrel. Awarded Double Gold Medal SF World Spirits Competition 2021 and earned Gold Medal SIP Awards 2021.

About our gear:

Intro to Devout Life by St. Francis de Sales

Written over 400 years ago, Introduction to the Devout Life is still one of the most popular books for those pursuing holiness. St. Francis de Sales explains how to turn that desire for sanctity into resolutions that yield grace-filled results.

Themes include:

  • Pursuing a devout life whole-heartedly
  • Incorporating prayer and sacraments into a busy
    schedule
  • Growing in virtue
  • Battling wisely against temptation
  • Making spiritual progress through daily, monthly, and yearly exercises

Whether you are just beginning your spiritual journey or are more advanced in the spiritual life, you’ll be able to apply this timeless wisdom immediately. Let St. Francis de Sales illumine the path to holiness and strengthen your desire to walk that road with the Lord.

St. Francis de Sales (1567–1622) was the Bishop of Geneva and a renowned spiritual director. Preaching during the Counter-Reformation, he is estimated to have converted 70,000 Calvinists in his short lifetime. He was a fervent proponent of the universal call to holiness and spent much of his time guiding lay people on the road to sanctity. Declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius IX in 1877, St. Francis is still helping to form saints through his many writings, of which Introduction to the Devout Life is the most famous.

About the Topic:

First Purification: From Mortal Sin

The means to do this is the holy Sacrament of Penance.
Four things that happen when you commit mortal sin:
1. By sin you have lost the grace of God
2. You’ve abandoned your place in paradise
3. Accepted the eternal pains of hell
4. Renounced God’s eternal love
 
He finds a general confession to be extremely useful in the beginning of this growth period.
“One of the serious responsibilities of a person committed to a moral and devout life is to avoid as far as possible situations, circumstances, places, or even persons that could possibly encourage one to sin.” EX: Alcoholic avoids bars and gatherings with alcohol.
 
Second Purification: Attachment to Sin:
 
“There are penitents who leave sin yet without leaving their longing for sin”
“They would like much to be able to sin without being damned.”
 
“You must not only relinquish sin; but you must prune your heart of all affections that relate to sin.”
It is one thing to stop sinning – and quite another to stop wanting to sin.
 
On Purging Oneself of inclinations one has to venial sins:
“One should not voluntarily nourish the will to continue and persevere in any kind of venial sin, because this would be too great a wickedness – to choose, knowingly, to keep in our conscience a thing so displeasing to God as a willingness to offend him.”
 
The necessity of Prayer:
 
1. Prayer puts our intellect in the clarity of the divine light and brings forth our weaknesses.
2. Focus your main prayer time at the beginning of the day when you are rested.
3. Do not rush to say many prayers, but teach yourself to say what you say lovingly.
4. The Rosary is a great starting point but if you have advanced to “contemplative” prayer, you should always keep that in the principal place.
5. When saying vocal prayers, if you sense your heart drawn and invited to interior or mental prayer, do not refuse to follow it, but let your spirit glide gently in that direction.
6. If you miss morning prayer and it is evening, you should pray, bead some book of devotion with penitence that may settle the rest of this shortcoming. (St. Francis knows the importance of habitual prayer and a regular pattern. If you voluntarily miss, it is a slippery slope. You should make up for it)

We sip on a delicious bourbon, Smoking Wagon, thanks to Chase Mascaro while discussing one of the more serious topics we have ever discussed on TCMS.

About our drink:

Our high rye content bourbon is aged in the heart of a century-old  brick warehouse. To ensure a unique and consistent flavor, barrels are hand selected to create a perfect blend that is smooth and at the same time bold and intense.

Released in 2016, our goal was to create a unique  great tasting high rye content bourbon.  

The problem is that rye ages much faster than corn.

So while our younger vintages had a big rye spice flavor (which we love) the mouth feel was too thin and it lacked the sweet, delicate complexity of a well aged spirit.  Our older vintages had the  smoothness and sweet notes that can only be achieved  by moving in and out of #4 char and caramelized oak for many, many years, but the nice rye spice had been aged out! 

 So what to do? Find the perfect blend.

We combined the two. The younger vintages maintain the bold spiciness of the rye, cut down on the tannins and keep it fruit forward.  The older vintage brings in a creamy mouth feel with sweet aromas and taste notes that only appear over time from aging in a barrel. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoy making it.

Nose:
Balanced oak nose with hints of fruit and dried apricots.

Taste:
Initial sweet notes on the front of the tongue. Well balanced mouth feel with spicy notes including white pepper on the middle and back of the tongue from the younger vintage and high rye mash bill. 

Good balance of sweet and oak flavors including hints of caramel (from the #4 charred barrels, caramelized wood sugar), fruit flavor and rye spice. Finishes smooth with no alcohol burn even at 100 proof.

Staple Gun

How much of a big deal can it be to choose a staple gun? Not much, right?

That’s what most of us think because staplers are pretty straightforward tools and don’t do much other than fastening objects. But guess what, it may not be as simple to pick one that meets all your needs for work around the house or on the job. That’s why we decided to create this guide to simplify your search for the best staple gun.

We asked Jim and Kendra some tips and tricks of the trade in regards to living liturgically and family prayer life.

About our drink:

Weller Full Proof

William Larue Weller developed his original bourbon recipe with wheat, rather than rye. Bottled at the same 114 proof the spirit was when it entered into the barrel, this non-chill filtered wheated bourbon forgoes chill filtration to preserve all the naturally occurring residual oils and flavors that occur during the distillation and aging process (potentially making it appear cloudy at cold temperatures). This bourbon balances a rich mouth feel, with robust notes of vanilla and oak. A whiskey that satisfies the demand of the non-chill filtered whiskey enthusiasts, honoring the man who made wheated bourbon legendary.

Wyoming Whiskey Private Stock

Wyoming Whiskey they are proud of their state and their spirits. the distillery was founded in 2009 by Kate and Brad Mead and their friend David DeFazio. But they had the help of an experienced guiding hand — Steve Nally, former master distiller at Makers Mark. The first commercial Whiskey was released as a four year old in 2012, but they state that all current Whiskies are a minimum of five years old. Importantly, they state loud and clear that none of their spirits are sourced. Every drop is distilled and aged on site at their facility in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming, all the grains are farmed within one hundred miles, and the water comes forma local well sunk into an ancient limestone aquifer. And you’ve just got to respect that.

About our drink:

Rough Rider Rye Bourbon Double Cask

Awarded 94 Points in the 2016 Ultimate Spirits Competition earning it a Great Value, this High Rye Bourbon gains its delicate smoothness in our unique Reserve Aging Method.

About our gear:

Drop cloths

drop cloth is a sheet of material used by painters to protect floors and furniture from the drips and drabs that can trickle down from above. If you have a paintbrush in one hand and a paint can in the other, there should always be a drop cloth underneath you. That’s one of the cardinal rules of painting. But you can do more with a drop cloth than just prevent paint from getting everywhere – let’s discuss.

About the Topic:

How to prepare you and your family for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass:

1. Arrive early

a.       If you aren’t early, you’re late

b.      Sundays can be stressful, you need time to decompress

2.       Silence

a.       Must be practiced for children and adults

b.      Especially the minutes before Mass

c.       If you want to take your preparation to the next level then try to adopt a mantra of silence beginning when you rise on Sunday until after Holy Mass

                                                               i.      “The person who talks constantly grows empty, and his emptiness is not only momentary… Only the word that emerges from silence is substantial and powerful.” Romano Guardini – Meditations Before Mass

3.       Composure

a.       Silence (at least interior) is a prerequisite for composure, but composure is one step beyond silence

                                                               i.      Silence overcomes noise, composure overcomes distractions

                                                             ii.      Composure is a silence that penetrates our interior

                                                            iii.      Composure is what allows us to be present

1.       “Once composure has been established, the liturgy is possible.  Not before.”

b.      This is why we need to arrive early, so we have time to compose ourselves

                                                               i.      When you arrive honestly confront your restlessness, distractions, and disorder

4.       Prepare your gifts for the altar

a.       Our tithe should not be given as if we are paying a bill

b.      “When we place the money in the basket, let it be with reverence to God and with charity to all.” RG

c.       Our gift should be a true sacrifice

5.       Know the readings

a.       Can help overcome distractions during Mass: kids

b.      Meditate on them before Mass.

c.       Read the readings every day.  Gives deeper perspective and insight into the narrative

6.       Have a prayer intention for the Mass

a.       Helps me invest myself emotionally into the liturgy

b.      A Mass without an intention is a wasted oportunity

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
