Week of August 14, 2022
1) Monday is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary: On Monday, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. 

Because it falls on a  Monday this year, it is NOT a holy day of obligation. Nonetheless, we will have our regular 7 AM Mass and a Mass at 7 PM that evening.

What exactly are we celebrating with the Assumption of Mary?

First, let’s look at the word assumption. The word assumption comes from the Latin word assumere, meaning to take to oneself. Thus, with the Assumption of Mary, we celebrate that moment when Christ took the Blessed Virgin Mary home to himself when the course of her earthly life had finished. Over time and in other rites or Orthodox traditions, the Assumption of Mary is called the Dormition of Mary or the Glorification of Mary. As stated by Pope Saint John Paul II in his general audience on July 2, 1997, “The dogma of the assumption affirms that Mary’s body was glorified after her death. While for other human beings the resurrection of the body will take place at the end of the world, for Mary, the glorification of her body was anticipated by a special privilege.”

Belief in the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary dates back to the earliest days of Christianity. The most substantial evidence we have comes not from scripture but the ancient liturgical texts, iconography, and poems honoring the mother of Jesus Christ.

Mary’s assumption into heaven was well established theologically and was part of the devotional life of the Church by the Middle Ages. While the concept of the Assumption of Mary was undoubtedly part of the life of the Church, it wasn’t proclaimed as dogma until 1951 by Pope Pius XII in his Apostolic Constitution Munificentissimus Deus.

Pope Saint Paul VI, in his Apostolic Constitution Marialis Cultus (For the Right Ordering and Development of Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary), offered a beautiful reflection on Mary’s role in our life (#57): “Contemplated in the episodes of the Gospels and in the reality which she already possesses in the City of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary offers a calm vision and a reassuring word to modern man, torn as he often is between anguish and hope, defeated by the sense of his own limitations and assailed by limitless aspirations, troubled in his mind and divided in his heart, uncertain before the riddle of death, oppressed by loneliness while yearning for fellowship, a prey to boredom and disgust. She shows forth the victory of hope over anguish, of fellowship over solitude, of peace over anxiety, of joy and beauty over boredom and disgust, of eternal visions over earthly ones, of life over death.”

The University of Dayton has an excellent website dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. There you will find a ton of information about the Church’s teaching and writings about the Blessed Mother. I strongly encourage you to glance through the vast resources available at udayton.edu/imri/mary/.

Mother of the Church. Pray for us! Queen assumed into Heaven. Pray for us!

3) Bishop Barron Returns to Detroit to Preach on The Little Way
‘Word on Fire’ founder recalls growing up in Detroit during ‘Live at the Basilica’
From Detroit Catholic: ROYAL OAK ─ Bishop Robert Barron returned to his Detroit roots on Aug. 11 to give a talk on the “Little Way” of St. Thérèse of Lisieux in a basilica named in her honor.

Bishop Barron, informally known as the “bishop of the internet” with a wide social media following, his critically acclaimed “Catholicism” film series, and Reddit “Ask Me Anything” appearances, was the keynote speaker for a “Live at the Basilica” event hosted by the National Shrine of the Little Flower Basilica in Royal Oak. The popular speaker series has seen prominent Catholics come to the parish to give talks and reflections on different aspects of the faith.
Bishop Barron was recently assigned to lead the Diocese of Winona-Rochester, Minn. Before that, he was an auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles after serving as a priest in the Archdiocese of Chicago, where he was born and spent most of his formative years.
Still, the bishop recalls his time growing up in Troy, attending Holy Name School in Birmingham, supporting the Detroit Tigers – now dubbed his “American League team” – and his mother pointing out the National Shrine of the Little Flower whenever they drove down Woodward Avenue.

Naturally, Bishop Barron spoke about St. Thérèse of Lisieux and her famed spirituality of the “Little Way.”

“I’ve been there, to Lisieux, where you (see) this fascinating basilica, spectacularly decorated and attracting millions of people every year,” Bishop Barron said. “It’s dedicated to this young girl who entered the convent at age 15 and died nine years later. When she died, her sisters in the convent wanted to put something together to send to the Carmelites in France, but one of them said, ‘What would we say about her?’ because they thought her life was so undistinguished. Yet, within a few decades of her death, this nobody, this hidden figure who died at 24, would be one of the best-known saints of the world.”

9) CSA 2022
Dear Friends in Christ,
This year’s Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) theme comes from the First Letter of Peter: “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” (1 Peter 4:10). It’s a call for hospitality and service, and to “let love for one another be intense.”
The Catholic Services Appeal is an opportunity to celebrate the ways our Church in Detroit responds to the material and spiritual needs of individuals and families. Our parish alone could not meet these many needs. It is through the sharing of our gifts and our service that we, together, can be the Church Christ wants us to be.
Would you consider making a gift to this year’s CSA?
Your generosity makes it possible for more than 170 ministries, services, and programs to love intensely and to bring the indescribable joy found in Christ to our communities.

Our CSA goal this year is $211,447. Anything raised above the goal will return to the parish, while any shortfalls must be covered by the parish. Thus, your support is greatly needed and appreciated.

You may have already received a mailing from the Archdiocese of Detroit. If you did so, please make a contribution to the CSA as indicated in that mailing.

You can also easily give by visiting: sja.aodcsa.org or by clicking on the button below.

Also available at the Church exists, in the bins outside the Sr. Carol Center, and at the Parish Center are general CSA brochures and envelopes that can be used to make a contribution to the CSA.

Assuring you of my prayers, I remain,

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Msgr. Mike

13) This Sunday's Readings - August 14, 2022, The Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time
14) Sunday Reflections by Jeff Cavins
Jeff Cavins reflects on the readings for the Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Focusing on the second reading, our life is a race with the ultimate goal or finishing line of being in the presence of God. The readings for the Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time are:

First Reading: Jeremiah 38:4-6, 8-10
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 40:2, 3, 4, 18
Second Reading: Hebrews 12:1-4
Gospel: Luke 12:49-53
15) Bishop Barron's Reflection for the Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time
Friends, the readings for this weekend are tough. Here is the principle behind them, one that is simple to state, but difficult to take in: in a world gone wrong, those who come to us speaking and embodying the truth are going to be opposed. In our first reading from Jeremiah and in Jesus’ harsh, challenging message in the Gospel, we encounter the disruptive, burning, cleansing quality of authentic religion.
16) Grow+Go for the Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Grow+Go, content is designed to help you understand what it means to be an evangelizing disciple of Christ. Using the Sunday Scriptures as the basis for reflection, Grow+Go offers insight into how we can all more fully GROW as disciples and then GO evangelize, fulfilling Christ's Great Commission to "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 28:19) The concept behind the weekly series is to make discipleship and evangelization simple, concrete, and relatable.

18) This Week's Edition of TALLer Tales
It’s ALWAYS My Fault: I’ve come to accept that no matter the problem or situation, it will somehow be my fault when something goes wrong. This is true with projects around the parish and also all my do-it-yourself projects with my family. And, I would say, about 95% of the time, it is my fault! I own it. This is where I’m partly a Dennis the Menace but mostly a Clark Griswold when it comes to these situations.

You may remember that over the Fourth of July weekend, I did some work over at my sister Cindy’s house. Yes, this was the weekend when I gashed my arm on some siding and had blood dripping on my sister’s new kitchen floor. Yes, this was the gash that got infected and has now left a lovely remembrance by way of a scar on my arm.

One of the projects that weekend was to install a new Nest Learning Thermostat in her house. She was having issues with her air-conditioner maintaining a proper temperature, and one of my solutions was to install a new Nest thermostat. But we also suspect that some mice or other critters have nested underneath her air-conditioner unit outside. Her air-conditioning unit was temporarily placed on cinder blocks and has yet to be permanently installed. I’ve been wanting to put my inspection camera underneath the unit to see what might be living down there. We are convinced there are some critters there because one of her dogs (Emmi, a Jack Russell Terrier) goes right to the unit when she’s outside and sits and stares at it (but then again, this is the same dog who sits and stares at the family’s new iRobot vacuum). I just haven’t gotten my camera underneath the cinder blocks; it’s on the list.

Well, Cindy mentioned to me recently that she was still having issues with the air-conditioner. She would set the thermostat, it would go on, but then it would go off for no reason. As a result, the house would get sweltering hot by the middle of the night. She would set it again, but it would do the same thing. As she described the problem, I began to wonder if I did something wrong with the installation or settings. I ruled out an installation failure because the thermostat was turning the air-conditioner on and off; it just wasn’t staying on or maintaining a consistent temperature. Then, it dawned on me; I bet I messed up some settings.

I logged into her Nest account and quickly determined that I had left the Nest’s Eco mode on. The Eco mode tells the thermostat to turn the unit on or off based on whether “it” thinks someone is home. Well, the thermostat is located on a wall where it wouldn’t sense much motion. So, the thermostat would reset the temperature to 80 (the upper limit I set) even after my sister set it to 73 because “it” thought no one was home. UGH. I made some changes, and at least it did a better job of keeping the air-conditioning on at night. So, in the end, it WAS MY FAULT! But it’s still not perfect. Now I have to get my inspection camera under the outside unit to see what critters are living there. But then again, my assumption on the critters is based on Emmi staring at the unit for minutes without end the moment she gets to go outside. So now I’m bracing for the reality that somehow whatever is wrong outside will also be my fault! That’s how it works when you’re a Dennis the Menace and Clark Griswold rolled into one person!
Enjoy the week. Know of my prayers.
In Christ,
Msgr Mike Simply Signature
19) Tire Tracks in the d’Arc
Coming Home—Part II: Two weeks ago, I told you about Gretchen, who we were blessed to be able to baptize and bring into the Church at the almost 87 years old. I referenced Jesus’ parable in Matthew 20:1-16, the laborers waiting all day to be hired in the vineyard.

It’s interesting as a priest that there are often times when everything is just kind of trundling along. There are, of course, many blessed moments in the day to day work when we are involved in sacramental service. But now and then, there are just times that multiple events will occur in a short space of time that really open your eyes to the power of God. And if they do that for me, I think it’s appropriate to use them to give you that opportunity to witness the power too. That’s why I like to tell you about these occasions. Such an occasion occurred again last week.

Last week I took a few days vacation, but I had no plans to go anywhere. I decided that on Wednesday, I was going to sand the old wooden fence that surrounds my back-yard (more on that project in a future column, I suspect). It was a really dirty job and, if you recall, Wednesday was a hot day, about 94 degrees. I always seem to pick these days to do outdoor work! I can’t pretend I don’t like it! I was finished sanding by maybe 3:30pm, so I showered-up and got a change of clothes. Storms were forecast for around 7pm so I wasn’t going to get much further in my project, but I decided to go to the hardware store and buy the stain so that I’d have it ready whenever that day came. I was at Gilbert’s at 5pm when Rachel called from our office. There was an emergency anointing call and Monsignor was not going to be able to get there for a few hours. When Rachel told me it was the husband of a lady I had been visiting near the parish, I was confused. “But her husband is not Catholic,” I told Rachel. I said I could certainly go, but let’s find out for sure what the family is asking for, so Rachel called his daughter back and then called me again. “So….. he was baptized last week!” Rachel said. “Well, that changes things!” I replied.

I was about to leave the hardware store and I don’t really know why, maybe it was the impending storm, maybe it was laziness, maybe it was the Holy Spirit, but I just decided to call the daughter from the store. I was going to go home and change out of shorts and t-shirt, but for whatever reason, I called instead and said, “I can come right away, I’m actually just down at the end of your street almost, but I’m not dressed as a priest! Is that okay with you?” I have never showed-up to someone’s home to anoint someone dressed like that, but she told me that was not a concern. So I left directly from the store. 

The man’s wife greeted me at the door and we were talking briefly when their daughter appeared out of the bedroom and said, “Mom, I think it needs to be now.” We went into the room where he was resting in bed. There was a number of family members present. His daughter told me he’d been having breathing apneas, which is usually an indication that the end is very close. I watched and saw him take a breath and immediately began the anointing. That was the last breath he took. His wife had been holding his hand throughout the anointing, and I’m not sure she even realized that she was smiling. Her daughter looked at her after we realized that he had died. She said to her mom, “Mom, you’re joyful!” And I think with surprise at this realization, her mom replied, “I am! This is how I wanted it to be… at home.” They told me that just an hour earlier, she had not been at all ready to let him go. It was both odd and beautiful to witness mom and daughter “high-five” over the body of their loved one who had just passed away within the last 2 minutes. 

The couple had been married 71 years and she had cared for him the last 11 years of his life. She just wanted him to die at home, not in a care facility. He had never been baptized until six days prior to his death. They had visited with a Deacon friend of the family, who I also know and previously worked with, and the man had expressed the desire for baptism. His wife said that when she was younger she “had seen” Fr. Solanus Casey, but was too embarrassed to cross the street to meet him because she didn’t consider herself appropriately dressed to meet him. I laughed because of the state of my attire that day! And she laughed too. As it transpired, Fr. Solanus’ feast day was her husband’s 95th birthday, just 3 days after he had been baptized. I reminded her that when they married, 71 years ago, their most important vocation was to bring each other to heaven. “Just look at what you did for your husband in the last week of his life!” I said. And as her daughter opened the window to let some air into the room, I said, “And shortly he’s going to be storming heaven like thunder!” (of course, I could see the heavy skies outside and I knew the storm was closing in).

It was then that things got even more “odd and beautiful,” as another daughter walked into the room holding a square, white cardboard box and announced, “I brought a cheesecake to celebrate the moment!” We all laughed and I commended the family for their attitude and perspective of joy at the passing of a Christian in a state of grace.

It was certainly a blessed occasion, but I want to make a link to what Monsignor talked about recently in his column with regards to the anointing of the sick. As he mentioned a few weeks ago, the Vatican II document Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy indicated that “anointing of the sick” is the more proper name for what many people still refer to as “last rites” or “extreme unction.” The sacrament is not only for those at the point of death. Sadly, I have been in the situation where families waited until the last moments of their loved one’s life, after many months of sickness, before calling a priest. On more than one occasion I have not been able to reach them in time for them to receive the grace of this sacrament. The immediate availability of a priest is not always possible. Though the time between baptism and death was just a few days, this would have been the case last week too, had I gone home to change before attending the home. By the grace of God, it worked-out beautifully, but it should be a reminder to all that while, of course, the sacrament is effective even to the unconscious, administering it often gives great peace to one awake and aware that they are receiving it. It can be so beautiful to see someone able to participate in the prayer as they are anointed.

The Assumption: On Monday we celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven. Of Mary’s role in our lives, Bishop Fulton Sheen, analogously writes: “God, Who made the sun, also made the moon. The moon does not take away from the brilliance of the sun. The moon would be only a burnt-out cinder floating in the immensity of space were it not for the sun. All its light is reflected from the sun. The Blessed Mother reflects her Divine Son; without Him, she is nothing. With Him, she is the Mother of Men. On dark nights we are grateful for the moon; when we see it shining, we know there must be a sun. So in this dark night of the world when men turn their backs on Him Who is the Light of the World, we look to Mary to guide their feet while we await the sunrise.”

And of the Assumption, Sheen -writes: "There are two bodies in heaven, one the glorified human nature of Jesus, the other the assumed human nature of Mary. Love is the secret of the Ascension of one and of the Assumption of the other, for Love craves unity with its Beloved. The Son returns to the Father in the unity of Divine Nature; and Mary returns to Jesus in the unity of human nature.”                
You are in my prayers this week.

20) Ascension Presents: Father Mike Schmitz
The Disciples Doubted the Eucharist. Do You?

You may have heard that Jesus is present in the Eucharist, but have you really heard those words? You may have been in the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, but have you really seen him in the Eucharist?

Today, Fr. Mike challenges us to take Jesus at His word (John 6:6) and to grow in our faith in His real presence, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in the Eucharist!
21) Words on the Word: August 14, 2022 - Better Than None

It’s been conventional wisdom for several years that fewer Americans are saying they are religious, with more saying they are unaffiliated with any major religion.

The so-called “nones.”

But a recent story in the Wall Street Journal indicated the assumption may be exaggerated, or even, perhaps, a fallacy.

The article, contributed by a professor at Baylor University, said that “these conclusions are based on (previous) analyses that are so flawed as to be close to worthless.”

Essentially, this author writes, the reason for the dichotomy begins with the fact that numerous new denominations are springing up, along with thousands of new congregations, and a large number of non-Christian denominations. Thus, when people who belong to any of these communities respond to surveys or are otherwise counted, they are often classified as “others.” Likewise, large national databases “often lump Others in with the Nones.”  

Admittedly, this is one article on one grouping of studies. As with so many other topics, more research surely will need to be done.

Taken at face value, though, the good news would seem to be that Americans haven’t become as intolerant or ignorant of religion as we might have thought. The downside, as it was believed to have been before, is that fewer people are indicating they are Catholic.

And so, along with more study, more work will continue to need to be done. The name of the game, here as when St. Paul addressed the Hebrews, is faith and perseverance.

“Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,” we hear in today’s second reading, “let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith.”
