It is rose blooming time in Erie this week...at least the first go around of them. Here's a cluster right at our front door. You can see four stages of these pink ones---all on the same bush.
Our Sunday Mass was outstanding this weekend. The planners interwove statements from Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si' on the care for our earthly home, which celebrates its first anniversary this week. Additionally, we had two young women doing a bit of liturgical movement highlighting the four basic elements of life: water, fire, earth and air, which were all part of the environment at the center of chapel. Lovely.
