“Through the Holy Spirit we are restored to paradise, we ascend to the kingdom of heaven, and are reinstated as adopted children. Thanks to the Spirit we obtain the right to call God our Father, we become sharers in the grace of Christ, we are called children of light, and we share in everlasting glory”.

St. Basil the Great


Around this time in Virginia, apple cider turns up in all the stores and farmer’s markets.  This warm apple cider is a great way to enjoy this crisp apple beverage.  It is inspired from one of our favorite restaurants, Le Pain Quotidien, which also offers it at various times throughout the year.
