Praise Worthy Dutch-style Gouda
In Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains thirteen nuns live at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery. They follow Benedictine tradition which says that prayer should be complimented with work, so they begun making Dutch-style Gouda and have been for over twenty years.
I just think working for a living is a good thing. Our life is pretty intense; there’s a lot of silence, a lot of prayer, a lot of meditation in it and I think the balance of using our bodies in a healthy way is very important for that. We use our bodies and the gifts God has given us of mind and heart and body to support ourselves and we find a special satisfaction in making a wholesome product to do that.
