Si Sol splendescat Maria purificante
Major erit glacies post festum quam fuit ante
Candlemas Day was at one time the traditional end of the Christmas season, and for that reason I have finally taken down the Christmas wreath which has adorned the door to my bedroom here.
There's hardly a break in the clouds today (though it's not snowing at the moment), so we'll see if the Latin adage above proves true this year.
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
