Online store launched for monastic goods from Spain

By Miguel Perez Pichel for CNA

Madrid, Spain, Mar 31, 2021 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- To help Spanish monasteries and convents sell their goods amid the restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic, the Cloister Foundation has launched a “Masters in Craftsmanship” campaign to promote the online sale of the handmade products of the monks and nuns.

In a press release, the Cloister Foundation noted that “at a time when the world is concerned about a healthy diet without additives, products made with care and craftsmanship are especially valued, and there are people who have been guarding centuries-old recipes who dedicate their lives to prayer and to work done with care and without haste.”

“These monks and nuns are ‘Masters of Craftsmanship.’ Through their contemplative life they give a breath of fresh air to the rest of the world. And they need our encouragement today,” the foundation stressed.

The foundation has set up an “online turnstile” on its portal to be able to buy from home the products made in convents and monasteries, and thus continue to help contemplative life without the need to go anywhere.

Cheeses, jams, wines, Trappist beers, sweets, and other products can be bought through the website.
