Each year, all of us here at Church Drunk eagerly anticipate the arrival of March 17th. It is a day filled with drinking, singing, and general merriment, and at the heart of it all is one of the heroes of the Catholic Church. However, St. Patrick does not hold a monopoly on his little square of the calendar. With that thought in mind, join Dizzy & Ges in yet another installment of Drunk Lives of the Saints, and hopefully we will all learn a bit about who else celebrates a feast on March 17th...and how well (or how poorly) your humble hosts can hold their liquor.
Have you ever wanted to just pack up and get away from it all? Perhaps to somewhere nice like, you know, a cave in the middle of the desert? If your dream vacation is a rock for a pillow, gruel 3 meals a day, and naught but the Bible for wild and imaginative entertainment, then perhaps you've got a bit of desert father (or mother) in you! In this week's podcast, join Dizzy & Ges for a wander into the desert to get funky with St. Antony and the rest of the hermit horde.
Last year, we rolled out a list of our favorite reads to get you through the long, lean days of Lent. For a couple of book nerds like us, the task was easy - choose five books from among dozens of titles that have made their way onto our list of favorites. This year, however, is a bit tougher.
Still ravaged by The Flu, potato blight, and Lenten-induced shellfish allergies, Dizzy & Ges carry on through this most blessed season of prayer and penance. And how could they not, when the Sunday gospel reading dials up a heavy dose of messianic rageousness? It's practically international Church Drunk day when churchgoers around the world celebrate this most unique of all charisms. So flip over a table, grab a cocktail, and settle in for another episode of Church Drunk!
