The weekend was filled with the celebration of the Feast of Benedict on Saturday, an oblate social gathering Friday night and Lenten retreat Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning's liturgy of the Fourth Week of Lent. All of these events were filled to capacity and exhibited great spirit, both social and liturgical.
At the oblate social Friday night I joined with three oblates who are also former students of mine from my high school teaching years as we serenaded the rest of the oblates with Villa's school song--yes, in celebration of our alma mater's first state basketball title.
