Mardi Gras Slide Show Posted!

Mardi Gras! Avila Gardens, Catholic retirement home for seniors, had a lively time on fat Tuesday. The loving Lenten season now falls upon us and the customs and traditions surrounding Mardi Gras were buzzing about our dining room. The residents enjoyed the classic sound of New Orleans Jazz, many sparkling masquerades, a bunch of bright beads and a whole lot of fun. At Avila Gardens the fullness of life is encouraged and our residents had a wonderful time before entering that most holy of seasons Lent.

Lenten Reflection

The great season of Lent has begun. Some persons may have mixed emotions about the season of penance and reparation. There is a professor who taught me in Steubenville who would exclaim on Ash Wednesday, " Ladies and gentlemen, this is the first day of Lent, and I can't wait for it to be over!" One of the elder sisters said last night, "Remember sisters that you are dust... so you should clean up after your self!" These are just a few cute reminders that Lent should be rather hard, not so comfortable, and penitential. I would like to invite you however to take these ideas and raise them to a higher level. The glory of Lent is that it brings about a deeper union with the suffering Christ who loves us unconditionally.
