Catholics, Alcohol, And Drinking


In this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, Sam and John are joined by Michael Foley, the author of Drinking with the Saints, to discuss how we can drink alcohol and smoke a pipe while still growing in holiness. We talk about how the Church understands alcohol consumption and how Michael came to write these books. Be sure to listen all the way through so you can learn how to enter into the book drawing.

In this episode we discuss;

  • Why Catholics don’t think drinking is immoral

  • The best Catholic cocktails and how to make some
  • And More
