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

I Peter 5:8

Fratres : Sóbrii estóte, et vigiláte : quia adversárius vester diábolus tamquam leo rúgiens circuit, quærens quem dévoret : cui resístite fortes in fide.

Brethren, be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith.



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)
