Prayer, fasting, the liturgy, discipline, work: these are the foundations of a Christian life that does what it is supposed to do: unite us to our Creator.

Following on from In Beer Veritas, here are a couple of additional pieces from the same trip – the first one, What We Need are Men Like St Benedict, talks about St Benedict and the monastery, and contains a link to the trailer for Quaerere Deum (To Seek God), a 2011 documentary about these monks. The other, just titled Norcia, is more of a travelogue, sharing the delights of regional cuisine (including donkey sausage).
