Our family has a strong affection for the Carthusian Monk’s.
A dear friend of ours, Charlie, introduced us to a fun-fact about these beloved monks many-many years ago – as we shared a toast together for the first time with the “Elixir of Long Life.”

And I encourage you to pick up your own copy of Cardinal Sarah’s latest book, The Day Is Now Far Spent – may it enlighten your own Spirit as much as it has so many others. hugs & blessings!
