Episode # 016 – Ashen Monk Mountain Chapter 16
Audio File Download: Chapter 16
Haunted by the demons of his past, Christopher Ward, a new monk at Saint Joseph’s Abbey, receives a mysterious invitation from the Vatican to visit an unheard of monastery deep in the Canadian Rockies, only to discover there is a closely guarded secret hidden within its walls. What will Christopher do when faced with his true destiny? What would you do if that destiny meant you must protect the entire world from what lies below?
Join Isaac in this new, spine-tingling, supernatural fiction series, and find out what must be sacrificed to heed the great and terrible call that is Ashen Monk Mountain.
A SUPERNATURAL MYSTERY FROM BENEATH THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD
A secret like none other, a testament to the great and immanently heartbreaking judgment to come for all who are the living – what will surely usher in eternity for both the lost and saved.
The truth is, there are sinister things in this world we really shouldn’t know of.
There are powers, principalities, rulers of darkness, and spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places that would be much safer for us if we just remained ignorant of them entirely.
Yet, the cold, hard truth remains. There is so very much more to this world we live in than the hum-drum drudgeries we experience day to day.
And, what if you discovered our reality was but a mere shadow of a larger, more forbidding, more severe cosmos – one with a supernatural, God awful war that has raged, un-sated, since the very beginning of time itself?
What if the very fate of humanity looked to you to do something about it?
“…not keeping their proper domain, but abandoning their own aboding habitation, these he has indeed imprisoned in chains under everlasting darkness in the infernal regions, keeping them until their judgment to come in that great and dreadful day of the Lord…” Jude 6
A MAN LOST AND ALONE
Christopher Ward grew up in a normal Catholic home, in an unexceptional Midwestern life. Yet, as fate would have it, he would not be left long in his mediocrity.
After enlisting in the military and shipping overseas, Christopher quickly rose through the ranks, and entered the elite units, serving in Afghanistan as a Special Operator. The things he saw there in the desert shook Christopher to the core.
Upon his return home, rather than re-embracing regular life, Christoper chose instead to enter Saint Joseph’s Abbey, a small monastery in the rolling cornfields of Massachusetts.
Here he lived and worked and found solace in the rhythm and silence among the brothers. Yet, when night fell, those demons from his past would rear up in his nightmares, haunting him, sending him back, again and again, into the horrors he so wished to forget.
A REMOTE MOUNTAIN MONASTERY WITH SECRETS THAT MUST BE KEPT
Well hidden at the top of the world, in the most remote place imaginable, there is a monastery that exists for a singular purpose. Within its walls it does hold a secret from the foundation of creation. There is a collectively evil and sinister force, an imperceptible darkness beyond imagining, that slithers and writhes, and smolders hot with the raw rage of unrelenting retribution.
Through its corridors and around its perimeters, there stands a solitary defense, guarding against what would otherwise ensure the destruction of all mankind.
“…for God did not spare the angels that did sin, but cast them rather down into the infernal regions, delivering them up into chains to be kept for the final judgment…” 2 Peter 2:4
A DANGEROUS LIFE FOR THOSE CALLED TO BE ASHEN MONKS
Beaten, bloodied, even to death. It is the fate of those called by God to the Ashen Monk life.
A militant, monastic Order, committed to the protection of the world from an unspeakable menace that threatens it day and night. An angelic battle, one waged not with conventional weapons, but with dark, last man magic, harnessing the immense powers of the fringe of quantum physics, with capabilities harnessed from nature that still remain undiscovered by the rest of the human race.
Judgment is coming, and they must prepare.
