monk soap....for the ascetic




when monks work with their hands, as our fathers and the apostles did, then they are really monks - Rule of Saint Benedict   This soap is handmade by the monks of Saint Joseph Abbey.  The abbey was founded over 100 years ago in Saint Benedict, La.....just across the lake from NOLA. The monks of Saint Joseph are dedicated to prayer and service.  They bake over 2000 loaves of bread a week to be distributed to the poor.  The loaves of bread are broken and multiplied to serve  one million meals a year....reminds me of the fishes and loaves!  I might not believe every jot and tittle of their doctrine....but I totally agree with His Faith poured out on their hands.....a beautiful offering ......


And now they are making soap!!!  Monk soap scents are heavenly....Night Blooming Jasmine, Cucumber Mint, New Mown Hay and the list goes on.  So if you are feeling a little ascetic..... you can purchase Monk soap at About Face  .....
