Our beeswax candles
for the Shop aare made by Br. Thomas.
Thes feast of the Presentation of the Lord is celebrated with a
procession with candles. One of the French names for that feast
was 'La Chandeleur' (derived from the word candle). Shrove
Tuesday is a day of relaxation for us before the ascetic
days of Lent. We ended the day watching the delightful (for the
eyes) movie 'Ratatouille'. Seeing the intricacy of French cuisine
was enough to satisfy our appetites. On February 10th, Fr. Martin
spent a week in the hospital to treat his "walking pneumonia". We
are grateful for your concern and prayers on his behalf. He is
regaining his strength slowly. Winter is not as severe here as we
know elsewhere. The cold weather makes us aware that the cost of
heating fuel has reached records high. We have in our files
documents dated in 1966 telling us that the oil would be increased from
.10c a gallon to .10 point 7. Those were the 'good old days'.
