FRANKLY takes us through a Catholic’s guide to life with the (beer, wine, and) spirits, with recipes for saint-inspired drinks.
Good News about Booze. There are numerous references in the Bible to alcohol. Some appear to favour it while others condemn it. It’s an important feature in the Gospel stories. Watch an account of the wedding at Cana, as told in St John’s Gospel.
The Temperance and Teetotal Movements
The beginnings of the Alcoholics Anonymous and the Twelve Step recovery method were important contributions of the Temperance movement. Watch a classic silent comedy sketch, The Kansas Saloon Smashers, which parodied the Teetotal movement. LINK TO THE VIDEO
