Despite the fact that the ground remains white, signs of spring abound around us. Robins have arrived and can be heard singing in the early morning, crocuses are budding through the frozen earth and the sun is now setting later in the day. The church calendar, too, tells us that the joy of Easter is drawing near through the passion and resurrection of our Lord this Holy Week.
The short break ahead allows each of us an opportunity to take pause and reflect. We recognize that, as sinners, we strive to do better, to serve others and to embrace our true selves. The world in which we live moves at an incredibly fast pace. Much will be done these next six weeks from the completion of classes to preparation for graduation. As you gather with family and friends this Easter Sunday, may you celebrate the love, kindness and hospitality we know as Anselmians.
May God continue to guide and bless us throughout the Easter season and beyond.
Wishing you all a very special Easter from our family to yours,
Steven and Eileen DiSalvo
