Not by bread alone

I was reading Steve Bogners’ blog, Catholicism, Holiness and Spirituality, this morning and came across a post for LaserMonks. A pastor friend of mine first recommended them to me several years ago. They have a great line of inks and toner and stand behind what they sell. Like other monastic communities their proceeds go to support their community. Buying from them can be an act of holiness.

Man does not live by bread alone, but if you’d like a loaf of heavenly bread I recommend that you get it from Abbey of the Genesee. This community of Trappist Monks has been making and selling bread since I was a little boy. They have a great product and you can order a box of six loaves of their bread from their online store if you don’t live in western New York or northwestern Pennsylvania where you can buy it in the grocery store.
This morning I had a bowl of granola that I purchased at Mt. Saviour Monastery in Pine City, New York on my recent visit there. The monks of Mt. Saviour offer a variety of products. They raise sheep which they shear and turn into lovely comforters, quilts and the like. They also have an apiary with some great honey for sale and they make their own beeswax candles. I recommend you visit the monastery and browse the bookstore, but if you can’t travel there by car, plane, train or bus I recommend a visit to Mount Saviour Monastery Online Store. Peace.
