TODAY WE CELEBRATE
"There is nothing better for mortals than to eat and drink and find enjoyment, for these are the hand of God.
Come, therefore, let us enjoy the good things that exist, and make use of the creation to the full as in youth. Let us take our fill of costly wine and perfumes, and let no flower of spring pass by us. Let us crown ourselves with rosebuds before they wither. Let none of us fail in our revelry, because this is our portion, and this our lot."
Eccclesiastes 2:24, Wisdom 2:6-9
Tonight we make the transition from the revelry of Mardi Gras to the more solemn time of Lent.
