A Great Lake of Beer for the King of Kings

11 April 2012

These quotes were published by St. Peter’s List. They’re too good not to share.

The sense behind these is pervasive throughout much of Catholicism.

God created the world, and it is good.

The Catholic Church is like a thick steak, a glass of red wine, and a good cigar.

(G.K. Chesterton)

In Catholicism, the pint, the pipe and the Cross can all fit together.

(G.K. Chesterton)

From man’s sweat and God’s love, beer came into the world.

(Saint Arnold of Metz, Patron Saint of Brewers)

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There’s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I’ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!

(Hilaire Belloc)

Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath, and a glass of good wine.

(Saint Thomas Aquinas)

I would like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings.

(Saint Brigid of Ireland)

Hope everyone is enjoying their Octave of Easter!

Servus Servorum Dei



Theirs was the religion of Saint John and of Saint Paul, the religion of the Gloria in Excelsis Deo, of the Athanasian Creed, and of the Te Deum Laudamus: Trinitarian, Christological, liturgical, and ecclesial.

Theirs was a religion spacious, broad, lofty, deep, and, at the same time, humbly rooted in the mystery of the Incarnation and in the homely economy of the sacraments.

(Dom Jean LeClercq, O.S.B.,
on the 12th Century Monastic reformers)

Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament …

There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves on earth…

(J.R.R. Tolkien)

Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead.

Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about.

(G.K. Chesterton)

The Gospel takes away our right forever to discriminate between the deserving and the undeserving poor.

(Servant of God Dorothy Day, Obl.S.B.)

Against the disease of writing one must take special precautions, since it is a dangerous and contagious disease.

(Peter Abelard)
