“The average American is physically, biologically, psychologically, and neurologically unable to do anything worthwhile before he has a cup of coffee. And that goes for prayer too. Even sisters in convents whose rules were written before electric percolators were developed would do well to update their procedures. Let them have coffee before meditation.”
– Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, The Priest Is Not His Own
Are you a Catholic Coffee enthusiast? This is for you.
The Venerable Fulton Sheen teaches us that the body and the soul are connected. Pray is better when we are alert and ready to converse and to listen. A cup of coffee is before prayer is a perfect practice.
Coffee has is long-standing Catholic tradition. It was first discovered in the 9th Century by Islamic shepherds but eventually made its way into the Vatican. It was introduced to Pope Clement VIII and he more or less “baptized” it.
“The Pope was brought a steaming mug of java and he took a sip. He was immediately delighted, and according to legend, he declared, “This devil’s drink is delicious. We should cheat the devil by baptizing it.”
Also, the patron saint of coffee is St. Drogo - St. Drogo, pray for us!
