Lent--Fifth Week

Our spring snows have continued through the weekend--large flakes, a dusting to an inch on the grass, but clear streets and, when the snow stops, bright sun, but cool temps. The oddities of early spring!

Some nice things to check out on our community site, if you haven't already---including a wonderful feature on our Wellness Program in the newsletter "Engaging Aging," sent to all religious communities in the country, both men and women.

Always amazing how the spring flowers seem to care less whether they get their water from rain or snow!

Be at peace with your own soul
then heaven and earth
will be at peace with you.
Enter eagerly into the treasure-house
that is within you,
you will see the things that are in heaven;
for there is but one single entry
to them both.

The ladder that leads to the Kingdom
is hidden within your soul...
Dive into yourself,
and in your soul you will discover
the stairs by which to ascend.

Saint Isaac of Nineveh
