One of the many special foods, my grandmother used to make, was homemade fudge. It was the type of fudge that melted in your mouth and soothed your soul.

The Trappist monks, of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, are now making fudge for this Christmas celebration.

From the over, fruitcake

This past spring, I had the pleasure of visiting the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia. Yes, I hung out with the monks for the day. The monastery is a wonderful place of peace to seek God.

The Abbey Store, located on the monastery grounds, is home to many delights. If you like good coffee, mouth-watering fudge, or fruit preserves, they got it. The Abbey Store also contains a rich assortment of Thomas Merton's books.

If you're looking for something different to give for this Christmas, and support these wonderful men of God, please consider shopping at The Abbey.

Blessings to you!
