Mar Tome was founded by Father Stan M. Smith, of the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Orthodox Church of the East to combine two great loves: a celebration of God and an enjoyment of His great gift, chocolate.
Many of us love chocolate like God loves us. Unconditionally. In all its forms, shapes, and creations. Much as God loves all life. Much as God will take us into His kingdom when our day comes, we take chocolate into us. We love chocolate's warm, nourishing richness much as God loves when we live a warm, nourishing rich life.
Mar Tome is from the Latin, literally "Sea Book," or "Sea Volumes." So as you sip your Holy Chocolate, consider the peace and calm of the sea. Consider curling up with a good book. Or even the Good Book. Just keep from spilling your Holy Chocolate on Deuteronomy.
