just curious...

... is there an order of nuns that produce their own alcohol, or do the monks just get to have all the fun. Of the world’s 171 Trappist monasteries seven produce beer, six in Belgium and one in the Netherlands.

Maybe I will start my own order of moonshine making nuns. Or absinthe. I bet the following would be huge.

The Orthodox nuns at Ormylia make a walnut liqueor that is unbelievably good. A friend brought us a bottle from his pilgrimage to Greece.

Will pants make part of your order's habit?

Thank you both, SP and NP, for the heads up on the two communities. Great stuff.

OK, I'm so joining the Adoratrices if I don't find a (sane, straight, Catholic) man in the next 12 months...

When I was in Germany, I visited a Monastery where the nuns made schnapps! It was wonderful!! I'm not sure exactly where it was or what order. I wasn't Catholic at the time, so I wasn't paying attention.

Just found your blog - love it!
