Let It Snow!

“Let It Snow!” Lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne wrote the popular song on a hot summer day in July 1945 in Hollywood, Calif., dreaming of much cooler weather. Winter’s chill often brings snow, a four-letter word to those who can’t stand the white stuff, but not to those who love it.

As winter is upon us here in the states, we thought this week we would share with you some of our favorite Loretto wintery scenes. We recommend viewing them by a fire with a cup of hot chocolate in hand. And for those who can’t wait for the snow to disappear, just think spring! 

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (Is. 55:10)

Enjoy!  And let it snow!
