NORCIA: Monks and the ruin

From the blog of the wonderful traditional Benedictine monks of Norcia.

On the Feast of St. Benedict, the monks gathered at dawn in the empty Piazza di San Benedetto, imploring the saint’s help for Norcia, the world and the Church.

You can help the monks and help yourselves by subscribing to their BEER CLUB.   They make great beer and you can subscribe to get a case (different sizes) a month.

Sign up and tell them that Fr. Z sent you!

The monks reached out to me and said that for every FIVE new Club members who sign up and reference “Father Z” in the “Notes about your Order” line, I will get a free case of beer to share with my priest friends.


Their beers are available in both in .75 liter bottles in cases of 6 and of 12.  You can get 1 case per month or 1 case every other month.

As you know, bad earthquakes brought down a lot of the old basilica in Norcia, where the monks were originally.  They are building a new place in the hills.

    God bless the Monks of Norcia.

    That scaffolding is symbolic for the condition of the Church today. These buildings, including St. Peter’s, will all be rubble someday. It’s fine to be disgusted by a Vatican that is mostly corrupt and resembles a Leftist NGO, and to be disgusted by those in the hierarchy and commentariat that busy themselves harassing the Faithful and mocking God, but do not give in to hate. Justice will be delivered to the unrepentant in the Lord’s good time.

    Ephesians 2:

    19 So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; 22 in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
