Last night, after the Miami area met and then had a webcast that both introduced the two Central Team members as they begin a month's visit to our Province and also had information from them about the International Society of the Sacred Heart and three from our Province reported on trends in the world, the church, and religious life, we had a great Mardi Gras party. On Epiphany we were given a King's cake and one of my community got the figure hidden in the cake on her first bite. She was therefore to be King and give us all a Mardi Gras party before Lent. It was all purple, green and gold, the official colors of Mardi Gras. We had the King's Speech that included the history of Mardi Gras before we began our celebration. It was fun, but it also makes us realize that Mardi Gras is supposed to be "Fat Tuesday", the day before the Fast of Ash Wednesday! Now I need to get busy on a list of things to be done before I go to my Silver Sneakers class!
