At the abbey, he began to brew beer, as essential in medieval life as water. He encouraged local peasants to drink beer, instead of water, due to its "gift of health." During the process of brewing, the water was boiled and thus, unknown to all, freed of pathogens.
And . . . there is a heat wave going on in much of the country.
Can you really question the Hand of God at play here?
