Monks Use Internet to Sell Bread


Imagine this, you're a monk whose community is "wholly ordered to contemplation," you don't listen to the radio, you don't watch television, and yet you sell bread in your high-tech internet store! I'm not 100% sure how this works out with the monks' way of life, but in a few weeks, their bread will be available online. For more than the last 50 years, the monks at the Abbey of Genesee (in upstate New York) have been baking thousands of loaves each week and selling them to the local supermarkets. Has anyone tried their bread? I hear it's popular in the region and is wonderfully tasty. I guess I'll have to order a loaf when the store opens up.
