Goat Soap

I hope that you had a blessed feast of the Theophany over the weekend!

Instead of commenting upon the insidious ritual befalling us this day in our capital city, I shall ignore the clamor outside and rather focus on more important things—like soap made from goat’s milk. Last week, I mentioned the Hermitage of the Holy Cross in West Virginia. Today, I offer you a report in the Charleston Daily Mail on the monastery’s resident soap maker, Anna Long: “The best job in the world.” The article describes the process of soapmaking and features photographs, as well.

You may order your very own goat soap from the monastery’s gift shop.

Sadly, goat soap will not cleanse the land of its manifest inequity on this day, but at least you will smell nice—and help to support the monastery. We surely need their prayers.
