On Wednesday evening, people of the Jewish faith celebrated the first night of Passover with a traditional meal called the “Seder.” During the Seder, we observe various traditions such as eating the “Matzah,” unleavened cracker with horseradish, and drinking four cups of wine. All of these rituals are reminders of the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt 3,319 years ago. Our ancestors’ miraculous escape from oppression to freedom has served as a source of inspiration for many generations and will do so for many more to come.

St. Bede's Parish will celebrate a Christian Passover dinner on March 30 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. Also known as a Seder supper, the Jewish Passover Meal originated at the time of the Jew's exodus from slavery in Egypt. It is a religious ceremonial meal that continues to be celebrated today in Jewish homes during their Passover. Jesus and his Apostles celebrated the Passover meal during the Last Supper, and therein lies the origin of the Catholic Mass. The dinner committee will prepare the meal of lamb, vegetables, haroses, matzah, bitter herbs, salad, wine and grape juice.

On Monday night, in true La Cañada Flintridge holiday tradition, the septic system went out a few hours before our Seder. Luckily, the cesspool pumping guy successfully pumped it, with moments to spare. The septic system rebelled against the days of spring cleaning. Cupboards were emptied and cleaned. Dishes were removed and replaced with Passover dishes. The house was scrubbed within inches of sanity. All sorts of objects ended up in the garbage disposal, including garbage, which apparently is anathema, not only to the disposal itself, but also to the septic system.

Ty Ritter, a local resident, will speak to the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada on July 12 at noon at Descanso Gardens, Van de Kamp Hall. Ty is a familiar face to those who have shopped at the La Cañada Trader Joe's. He seems like such an easy-going person but is actually a person much feared by those who kidnap children that are usually sold into sexual slavery. Ty has successfully recovered 34 children and has been shot eight times in these recoveries. He has had "Wanted" posters with his photo in foreign countries put up by sexual predators and corrupt government officials.

Joe Puglia Who would have thought that a mere mortal sculpted from the likes of us could create something as prophetic as the Declaration of Independence. The second paragraph begins with the perfect sentence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.” Well, sort of equal, but not really. In 1776 they forgot about 500,000 slaves and, for that matter more than a million women. The declaration was a philosophically perfect document written by an imperfect man. Thomas Jefferson was a philosophical genius tempered by the classics, a slave to the principles of John Locke who promised us, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
