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.
It's Mardi Gras! It's Valentine's Day! It's Ash Wednesday! It's the one year(ish) anniversary of Church Drunk! Come celebrate (e) all of the above with us as we kick off Lent with our very special Podcast Episode 30. But that's not all! As a special bonus, you'll get to find out what your two favorite ash-holes (Dizzy and Ges) are giving up for Lent. Pour yourself a penance cocktail, and settle in for our catch-all celebration of Valentash Wednesdagras!
Catholic schools are not really all about rosary beads and nuns whacking your knuckles with wooden rulers. They're also about Communion wine! And, uh...Catholic guilt! Join Dizzy and Ges (two veterans of the Catholic school system) for a celebration of Catholic Schools Week and the education you receive at the school of holy knocks.
The coming and going of the annual March for Life movement always gets us a bit riled up here at Church Drunk. On the one hand...yay life! On the other hand, uh, yay choice! Why are we told that we have to be one or the other, and what does it really mean to be "pro life" anyway? So, what do you march for? March for Life! March for Women! March to your local watering hole and fire up a new episode of Church Drunk!
We've had an epiphany...and so have you! It's time to celebrate the Wee Three Kings (pretty sure we nailed it on the spelling there) with the Fast of the Magi. Pour a glass of leftover nog and finish the holiday season as Dizzy and Ges explain what gifts they would have brought to the little baby Jesus in the manger.
Well, December is nearly over, and with it goes Advent. It would seem appropriate to wrap-up our 4(ish) weeks of preparation with a nice little retrospective, or a look toward Christmas. But since when have Dizzy & Ges been appropriate? Instead, Church Drunk invites you to join us for a very special December edition of Drunk Lives of the Saints!
Church Drunk continues to roll through Advent with a look back at Peace Week. But as Dizzy & Ges begin to realize just how chaotic and peace-less our world seems today, they quickly change gears to discuss a seasonal favorite - Christmas songs! So light a candle, pour your favorite purple cocktail, and may the Force be with you...and with your spirit!
