More than one person has sent me email asking if it is possible to “subscribe” to Mystic Monk Coffee (“It’s swell”, by the way) on a monthly basis and have the commission for the subscription come to WDTPRS.
The answer is now YES!
Since the Mystic Monks are traditional, they know you are supposed to keep in mind both kind and number.
Here is what an order form would look like.
Here it is when a serious supporter of the program fills out the order!
Therefore, you can select the kind of coffee you want and the number of bags of that coffee those Mystic Monks should send.
No! Seriously! If you want 25 of coffee X sent each month, you can. You are in control! Also, subscriptions helps the Carmelites know what they can expect to come in for their monthly budget.
“But Father! But Father!”, I can hear some of you saying. “You think you are so clever. That analogy of kind and number you used above. Ooops! That means that drinking coffee is like a mortal sin! Is that really a good selling point? HA HA! Caught you!”
Piffle. I am way ahead of you and thought of that even before you said it.
Once upon a time, there was a Pope named Benedict. Benedict XIV, to be precise. Papa Lambertini.
He was a brilliant wit, a king among wits, in the days of witty people with powdered wigs and snuff boxes.
One day Papa Lambertini, who loved snuff (the tobacco that goes up the nose), did a great honor to one of his Cardinals by offering him a pinch of snuff from the Pontifical Snuff Box Itself!
The Cardinal demurred, saying, “Thank you, no, Your Holiness. I don’t have that vice.”
Fixing his Cardinal in the Pontifical Stare, the Pontiff riposted, “Were this a vice, We are sure that Your Eminence would have it.”
I added a link on the right side bar you can find easily once this entry scrolls off.
They are building their monastery in Wyoming…. bean by bean.
