What better way to lift your spirits and those of your loved ones than with some beautiful music performed by our friends at Clamavi De Profundis (check out their YouTube channel here). I hope you enjoy their Christmas Medley and many other offerings…
The treatment and curing of the ill and infirm is a long standing tradition within the Catholic faith. The ability to propagate and properly administer herbal remedies is a homesteading stalwart. I recently stumbled onto a series of articles documenting the Monastic tradition of herbalism from medieval times that continues to this day. I thought it was interesting so I figured I’d share….hope you find it as informative as I have
Sacred music is very much a part of the Church’s tradition, and for good reason! There is just something ethereal about Gregorian Chant. The good folks over at Traditional Catholic Priest.com have a nice album review I though I would share with you guys, enjoy….

Here at the Traditional Catholic Homestead we are blessed to know and be friends with some talented families. One family is fairly local to us and is, indeed, very talented.
