no signs of spring

hubby and i drove to mundelein seminary last saturday, had mass there then to elly’s pancake house for brunch. it was a good time to visit our seminarian friend beto and help him coordinate a few items for his ordination to the priesthood in june.

it was our first time to attend mass in the new blessed john paul ll chapel since its renovation last fall. i was struck by its beauty and simplicity. though not yet fully complete, it is heartwarming to know that a filipino saint, st lorenzo ruiz, will be one of 19 saints that will be memorialized through the chapel’s stained glass windows. it is a beautiful house of worship and i can’t wait to spend time there again at our next visit.

beto took me for a short drive around the campus. it was a bit overcast and cold. the wind felt as though it was barely above freezing. the trees are dried, no rebirth in sight and the lake still frozen. aside from the increased daylight, still no signs of spring.
