What a wonderful celebration of Corpus Christi!! The Mass and Procession of the Most Holy Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ was tremendous.  Thank you to all the people who made it so special. Special thanks to those who carried the Baldacchino and to those who processed to the Chapel for the blessing and re-commissioning of the new Monstrance and the chairs.

 

Several questions have arisen from the celebration: first, where did we get the Monstrance? The Monstrance is on semi-permanent loan from the Diocese of Cleveland Archive. It was originally from the Saint Joseph Christian Life Center and I understand Fr. Wally Hyclak is thrilled that we are using it. Second is, what is a Baldacchino? A baldachin, or baldaquin or in the Church baldacchino, is a canopy typically placed over an altar or throne. It had its beginnings as a cloth canopy, but in other cases it is a sturdy, permanent architectural feature, particularly over high altars in cathedrals. It can also be a processional canopy used in Eucharistic processions, held up by four or more people with poles attached to the corners of the cloth. It is only a baldacchino if it has four poles whether in permanent form above the Altar or in a Processional context. The Baldacchino we used is also from the Diocese of Cleveland Archive and is over 150 years old. It is truly beautiful and we are fortunate to be allowed to borrow it.

 

The final question is something that I have been asking and also have been asked for my entire 9 years here. Why do people think it is permissible to leave prior to the end of Mass which is when the closing hymn is over? The answer to that is, I don’t know! I have consistently written about this for years and have been ignored or given poor excuses. I am not talking about emergencies or significant health

issues. I am referring to the attitude or thought that this is acceptable. This sinful attitude and behavior is something that I haven’t spoken of in a while but needs to be brought to the community’s attention. Please make arrangements to be present at the beginning of Mass (beginning of the announcements) through the end of the song. It is for the good of the Church and the Glory of God.

 

Festival blessings and be encouraged, we are all journeying with you. I pray our Lord richly blesses you. Always remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less, and I will continue to pray for you every day. ~ Fr. Behrend

At the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., in his opening  remarks, Robert Cardinal Sarah appealed to American Catholics not merely as believers, but as citizens and public witnesses:

“As you well know, what happens in the United States has repercussions everywhere. The entire globe looks to you, waiting and praying, to see what America resolves on the pressing challenges the world faces today. Such is your influence and responsibility.

 

      In 2011, the National Catholic Reporter surveyed American Catholics specifically about the Eucharist and relevant Church teaching. That poll came up with these results:

 

· About 63-percent of adult American Catholics believed that “at the consecration during a Catholic Mass, the bread and wine really become the body and blood of Jesus Christ.”

· The largest group, called “knowledgeable believers,” involved Catholics who knew what the church teaches regarding the Eucharist and also expressed a belief in this teaching. About 46-percent of adult Catholics in the study were knowledgeable believers.

 

  The second largest group in size, 33-percent of respondents, is the “unknowing unbelievers.” Those Catholics did not know what the church teaches regarding the Eucharist nor do they     believe in this teaching.  Too many dismiss the spiritual significance and impact of witnessing the Real Presence, of receiving the genuine Body and Blood of Christ.

 

We should hunger for Corpus Christi, for the Body of Christ. We should desire to join with our fellow Catholics, the people who make up the living Body of Christ, in service and interaction and worship.

 

Even more essentially, we should hunger for the Eucharist. Please pray for our entire Church.  For the Body of Christ.

 

We need more people to set the example by standing up (or more accurately kneeling down) to the Blessed Sacrament in Adoration.  Our Adoration Chapel has many hours open and even if you can’t commit to an hour to come as you are able, to be generous with your time. Remember, no one can out do our Lord in generosity and adoration is one place where yourexample can truly show.

 

 As I have said we are in a period of transition. One of the things that is troubling is that the number of Parish Organizations is dwindling so we have fewer groups to host the doughnuts after Masses on Sundays. So we are trying something new! We are putting each of you on the honor system.  Starting this Sunday, June 18, there will be a money box to purchase the    doughnuts. This is a trial and if it turns out to not work well we will have to re-think having them after Masses. Next Sunday, June 25, there will be no hospitality because of the Festival and July 2, the trial will continue but the doughnuts will cost $ .50 each. Thank you for your trustworthiness in advance!

 

 Blessings of Corpus Christi and be encouraged, we are all journeying with you. I pray our Lord richly blesses you. Always remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less, and I will continue to pray for you every day. ~ Fr. Behrend

On this Trinity Sunday I am grateful for the ministry of several people and wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors. First to Fr. John Sullivan, thank you for your counsel, your attitude, your joy and for your service to the parish.  Second to Fr. Ed Schwet, thank you for your ministry to the hospitals and blessings on your future assignments. Finally to Mrs. Loretta Pilla, thank you for all your efforts to make Mater Dei a wonderful success, words cannot adequately convey my appreciation and approbation for all you have done. You will all be missed!

 

Yet we continue to change and hopefully grow and so we welcome Fr. Greg Schaut who will be the Chaplain at Lake Health (both Lake West and Tri-Point) beginning Wednesday, June 14.

 

A friend wrote this article on common errors within the Church and it is definitely food for thought:

 

There are many errors in our time that masquerade as wisdom and balance, but they are no such thing. … And thus in the list that follows I propose certain fundamental errors of our time that are common, but I use language that speaks less to philosophies and logical fallacies, and more to the errors as      experienced.

 

1. Mercy without reference to repentance – For too many today, “mercy” has come to mean, “God is fine with what I am doing.” … Repentance is the key that unlocks mercy. For, it is by repentance that [we can] reach for and grasp God’s merciful and outstretched hand.

2. Staurophobia – The term staurophobia comes from Greek roots and refers to a fear of the Cross (stauros = cross + phobia = fear). Within the Church this error emerges from reticence by Catholics to frankly discuss the demands of discipleship. … But for too many Catholics today, the cross and its   demands makes them cringe and even feel embarrassment. Instead of boasting in the power of the Cross, the thinking seems more to be “How dare we, or the Church point to it, and actually insist thatit is better than the comfort of false compassion.”

3. Universalism – Universalism is the belief that most, if not all people are going to be saved in the end. This is directly contrary to our Lord’s own words wherein He sadly attests that “many” are on the road that leads to destruction and “few” are on the narrow and difficult road that leads to salvation (See Matthew 7:14, Luke 13:23-30). …

4. Deformed Dialogue – The term “dialogue” has come to mean an almost endless conversation. As such it lacks a clear goal to convince the other. […]

5. Equating Love with Kindness – Kindness is an aspect of love. But so is rebuke; so is punishment; as is praise. Yet today many, even in the Church, think of love only as kindness, affirmation, approval, encouragement, and other positive attributes. But true love is, at times, willing to punish, to insist on change, and to rebuke error. …

6. Misconstruing the nature of tolerance – Most people today equate tolerance with approval. Therefore, when many demand or ask for “tolerance” what they really demand is approval. …

7. Anthropocentrism – This term refers to the modern tendency to have man at the center and not God…

8. Role reversal – Jesus said that the Holy Spirit whom He would send to us would convict the world (see John 16:8). And thus, the proper relationship of a Catholic to the world is to have the world on trial. …

 

Blessings of the Most Holy Trinity and be encouraged, we are all journeying with you. I pray our Lord richly blesses you. Always remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less, and I will continue to pray for you every day. ~ Fr. Behrend

The grace of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, radically changes everything!
The Holy Spirit sanctifies us, and perpetuates our sacramental baptism as a river of grace.
Pope Saint John Paul II invited many groups to Rome for the 1998 celebration of Pentecost.
The half million people gathered in St. Peter’s Square heard these words from the lips
of the Polish pontiff:
“Today, I would like to cry out to all of you gathered here in St. Peter’s Square and to all
Christians: Open yourselves docilely to the gifts of the Spirit! Accept gratefully and obediently the charisms which the Spirit never ceases to bestow on us! Do not forget that every charism is given for the common good, that is, for the benefit of the whole Church.
True charisms cannot but aim at the encounter with Christ in the sacraments. The ecclesial realities to which you belong have helped you to rediscover your baptismal vocation, to appreciate the gifts of the Spirit received at Confirmation, to entrust yourselves to God’s forgiveness in the sacrament of Reconciliation and to recognize the Eucharist as the source and summit of all Christian life. Thanks to this powerful ecclesial experience, wonderful Christian families have come into being which are open to life, true “domestic churches”, and many vocations to the ministerial priesthood and religious life have blossomed, as well as new forms of lay life inspired by the evangelical counsels. You have learned in the movements and new communities, that faith is not abstract talk, nor vague religious sentiment, but new life in Christ instilled by the Holy Spirit.
Today from this upper room at St. Peter’s Square, a great prayer rises: Come, Holy Spirit, come
and renew the face of the earth! Come with your seven gifts! Come, Spirit of Life, Spirit of Communion
and Love! The Church and the world need you. Come, Holy Spirit, and make ever more fruitful
the charisms you have bestowed on us. Give us new strength and missionary zeal to these sons and daughters of yours who have gathered here. Open their hearts; renew their Christian commitment in the world. Make them courageous messengers of the Gospel, witness to the risen Jesus Christ, the Redeemer and Savior of man. Strengthen their love and their fidelity to the Church.
Today from this square, Christ says to each of you: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel
to the whole creation” (Mk 16:15). He is counting on every one of you, and so is the Church.
Dear English-speaking friends, on the vigil of this great feast of Pentecost, I pray that the Holy
Spirit will increase the flame of his love in your hearts so that you may be ever more effective in bringing the Gospel message to the world of the new millennium. The Church needs your commitmentand your love!”
In that moment, the Holy Spirit stirred up the fire of divine love that moves us to bear joyful
witness to Christ. The Holy Spirit radically changes everything as was said so well, long ago:
Without the Holy Spirit: God is far away, Christ stays in the past, the Gospel is a dead letter, the
Church is simply an organization, authority a matter of domination, mission a matter of propaganda, liturgy no more than an evocation, Christian living a slave morality.
But with the Holy Spirit: the cosmos is resurrected and groans with the birth pangs of the Kingdom, the risen Christ is there, the Gospel is the power of life, the Church shows the life of the Trinity, authority is a liberating service, mission is a Pentecost, the liturgy is both memorial and anticipation, human action is deified.
Pentecost Blessings, and be encouraged, we are all journeying with you. I pray our Lord richly
blesses you. Always remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less, and I will continue  to pray for you every day. ~ Fr. Behrend

Wow! Just, Wow! The celebrations of the 150 years and 40 hours of priesthood were incredible. Rarely does this sort of “perfect storm” happen so when it does it is good that we don’t let it pass by unnoticed or under-appreciated. All of us at OLMC did ourselves proud! So much work went into making this weekend a reality. It is difficult to thank everyone who participated by name without forgetting or unintentionally missing someone. So I am going to say: Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who did anything to make these celebrations a reality.

 

To all who worked and worked to make the Masses beautiful and prayerful: the servers, ushers, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lectors, Lynne and the choir, the musicians, decorating committee, Dan and the sacristans, the cleaning group, those who did the landscaping and all who attended, prayed and participated in the Masses.

 

To those who made the reception such a success: Charlene, Teresa, Barb, Sharon, Joe Betsa, Bob Crosby, Jeff Jones Photography, and especially all who set-up, cleaned up, and all those who prepared, donated, and served the incredible food.

 

To the Baugh, Sullivan, and O’Donnell families: thank you for providing us with so many great pictures and memories so we could, embarrass er… celebrate the wonderful jubilarians.

 

To the Garris family: thank you for participating in the life of the parish. It is truly an honor to witness the gifts that families share and it is so inspiring to see you all live out your           vocations in love and in hope.

 

To Fr. Eric Garris: It has been our distinct privilege to watch you grow into the man, and now priest, you are. You will do great things at Saint Raphael and they are very fortunate to have you as their new Parochial Vicar. You will always have a home here and we promise to continually support you with prayer. God bless you. May God grant you many years of joy.

 

A couple more Parish intentions for the 54-day Rosary Novena are: for all who served and serve in the military and safety forces and for their families; for the end of the School Year and for our students who are going on to other opportunities, especially our 8th Graders.

 

Blessings of the Resurrection, the Priesthood, and be encouraged, we are all journeying with you. I pray our Lord richly blesses you. Always remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less, and I will continue to pray for you every day. ~ Fr. Behrend

Today we celebrate the extraordinary gifts of the Priests affiliated with OLMC. Looking at this year Fr. Baugh was Ordained May 18, 1957 and celebrates his 60th Anniversary; Fr. Sullivan was Ordained May 20, 1967 and his Golden (50th) Anniversary; Fr. O’Donnell was Ordained November 20, 1976 and celebrates 40 years. Fr. Schwet was Ordained June 12, 1982 and celebrates 35 years; Fr. Behrend was Ordained May 20, 2000 and celebrates 17 years; Fr. Eric Garris was Ordained May 19, 2017. We are looking forward to an incredible celebration after Fr. Garris’s Mass of Thanksgiving which begins at 2:30 on Sunday May 21. All are invited to the Masses and the reception. We are so grateful to God for these wonderful Priests and their generous service. Doing the Math, we together have 202+ years of priesthood, what a blessing. IS THE JUSTICE SYSTEM JUST? What happens when a traffic stop or an arrest is made by the police? What information and factors are considered when the prosecutor decides whether to file a criminal charge? What factors are considered by a judge when a defendant is sentenced? In an ongoing effort to present pertinent information to communities throughout Lake County, you are invited to a forum which will focus on what happens at each stage of the justice system when a person is arrested, charged, and convicted of a criminal offense. The first of these sessions in the West End of Lake County will be held on Tuesday, May 23 at 6:30pm (Doors open at 6) at Saint Mary Magdalene, Willowick A panel consisting of a Lake County Police Chief, Lake County Prosecutor Charles E. Coulson, and Lake County Common Pleas Judge John P. O’Donnell will discuss the way the justice system in Lake County actually works. The panel strongly encourages questions from the audience. In past forums held in other communities, the inquiries have focused on whether members of minority classes and those with lower socio-economic status are fairly treated. I have been involved with Judge O’Donnell in this effort and I believe that this is a wonderful opportunity to get the facts about your rights and how the system truly works. Be sure to spread the word. The Parish intentions for the 54-day Rosary Novena that begins Tuesday, May 23 are for the Diocese and the choice of the new Bishop, for the priests celebrating significant milestones, for Deacon John Strmac and his family, for Mater Dei Academy, for the new programs in the parish, and for the success and faithfulness of the Festival. Other intentions will be coming in the next few weeks. Please remember the priests in your prayers. Blessings of the Resurrection, the Priesthood, and be encouraged, we are all journeying with you. I pray our Lord richly blesses you. Always remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less, and I will continue to pray for you every day. ~ Fr. Behrend Greetings to the family of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Together in this time and place, we give glory to God.

We, as a Diocese and as a Parish, are undergoing such a tremendous period of transition! We are waiting for a new bishop and looking for his leadership. I believe that we need to root ourselves in prayer and pray as we prepare for a new bishop. Also within the parish and the school we have many more transitions, Fr. Sullivan’s retirement, celebrating Deacon John Strmac’s life, Rich Samide joining our staff, for Fr. Eric Garris and his first assignment, in gratefulness for Loretta Pilla’s ministry, for her health, and finding a new principal are things of note among many other changes. We are formally dedicating these and all upcoming events like the Festival, along with your personal intentions, to the intercession of our Blessed Mother with a 54 day Rosary Novena. The 54 day Rosary Novena consists of five decades of the Rosary each day for 27 days in petition; then immediately five decades each day for 27 days in thanksgiving, whether or not the specific requests have been granted. The meditations vary from day to day. On the first day meditate on the Joyful Mysteries; on the second day the Sorrowful Mysteries; on the third day the Glorious Mysteries and on the fourth day the Luminous Mysteries; and so on throughout the 54 days. This is an arduous novena but it is a novena of love. Look upon each Hail Mary as a rare and beautiful rose which we lay at Mary’s feet. These spiritual roses, bound in a wreath with Spiritual Communions, will be a most pleasing and acceptable gift to her and will bring down upon us special graces. This can be done at home, in the Chapel, or anywhere. There are no formal times unless you want them. I will be giving different intentions throughout the Novena so we can continue to consecrate and celebrate the incredible gifts that God pours out in abundance. The timing of this works out very well, beginning the Novena on May 23, the 54th day is July 15, when we celebrate the 200th anniversary of Wickliffe and one day before Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s Feast day. This is also the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima. Just a gentle reminder that we are celebrating 150 years and forty hours of priesthood (the four men who are celebrating milestones, including soon to be Fr. Eric Garris) on May 21. All are invited and welcome. Please help with desserts, side-dishes, and food items for this enormous reception. Blessings of the Resurrection, the Priesthood, and be encouraged, we are all journeying with you. I pray our Lord richly blesses you. Always remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less, and I will continue to pray for you every day. ~ Fr. Behrend

April 30, 2017

We have been given a unique honor! Every once in a while the Seminary prepares a man for priesthood who, for whatever reason, finishes his Theology Requirement prior to his Formation Requirement.  This Seminarian is then assigned to a parish for

continuing Formation. We have been assigned one such Seminarian, Richard Samide, a Son of Saint Mary Parish in Hudson, and a soon to be graduate of Saint Mary Seminary.  He will join the Parish Staff in May and live and work here for the year. He is projected to be Ordained a Deacon in October and a Priest in May 2018. We are privileged that our community can continue to serve the men preparing for the Sacred      Priesthood. Welcome Richard!

 

Final 7:00 pm Mass    

The final 7:00 pm Mass of the school year is Sunday, May 14.

 

Military Service

In honor of Memorial Day all active duty, reserve, and retired military are invited to receive a special blessing at the 9:30am or 11:30am Mass on Sunday, May 28. If your loved one is currently enlisted, we ask that you submit their name, unit, and picture to the parish offices so that our community may pray for their safety and in thanksgiving for their service.

 

150 Years and 40 Hours of Priesthood Celebration

All parishioners are encouraged to honor our priests on Sunday, May 21.  As Fr. Baugh (retired, in residence) celebrates 60 years of priesthood, Fr. Sullivan (senior parochial vicar) celebrates 50 years, Fr. O’Donnell (parochial vicar) continues to

celebrate 40 years, and Deacon Eric Garris (son of the parish) is ordained to the priesthood.

 

In appreciation of both the years served and the years to come: Fr. Sullivan will celebrate the 11:30 Mass on May 21 in honor of his 50 years of Priesthood and Fr. Garris’ Mass of Thanksgiving is at 2:30 pm also on May 21. Following both Masses, everyone is invited to the McCafferty Center to acknowledge these important milestones.  No RSVP is necessary, but all are welcome to contribute appetizers or desserts for the luncheon (please sign up on our parish website or contact the office).

 

Blessings of the Resurrection, Happy Easter, and be encouraged, we are all journeying with you. I pray our Lord richly blesses you. Always remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less, and I will continue to pray for you every day.

April 23, 2017 -Divine Mercy Sunday

Good news everyone, Frank Kelly is returning!  Francis B. Kelly, raised in Boston, MA as the sixth of twelve children in an Irish Catholic family.   Rooted in prayer, sacraments and devotion to the saints, Kelly lived an ordinary life as a husband, father and construction foreman.  While working on a hospital jobsite on December 5th, 1985, he was electrocuted by what should have been a lethal dose of electricity.  Not only did Kelly miraculously survive, but the Lord        unfolded a dramatic new life.  Now afflicted with debilitating rheumatoid arthritis and a heart condition, Kelly travels throughout the country, sharing his life changing experience whose fascinating story is the subject of the book, Short Circuit to God; written by David Lang, PhD, with a foreword by Kelly’s spiritual director, Fr. Ronald K. Tacelli, SJ, PhD.

 

Frank’s healing ministry consists of teaching and individualized prayers.  Powerfully accentuated by his spiritual gifts, discernment and word of knowledge, his prayers are often accompanied by instructions to pray specific novenas for the intercession of saints.  Many people have been touched by this humble man whom God uses as a vessel for healing and reconciliation

 

To glorify the Father and with permission from his Bishop, Frank now travels throughout the country teaching and sharing his life-changing experiences while Goduses him as a conduit for Spiritual, Emotional and Physical Healings. 

His healing services will be at the following locations:

 

May 9th  - Mary Queen of Peace; 4423 Pearl Rd. SW, Cleveland, after 6:00 pm Mass

May 10th - Divine Word; 8100 Eagle Rd., Kirtland; after 6:30 pm Mass

May 11th- Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, 1730 Mt Carmel Dr., Wickliffe; 7:30 pm

May12th - Church of St. Mary; 401 N. Street, Chardon; after 7pm Prayer Service

 

"I then realized that Frank has the Holy Spirit working through him. Every time I have spoken with Frank, I am more aware of the presence of the holy Spirit"

"Frank patiently listens, prays, and shines the light of Christ onto anyone that God brings onto his path in life."

 

I too have seen very specific results from Frank’s ministry, he has helped me clarify things I was praying for and he foretold that I was coming to OLMC more than 9 years ago.

 

Easter blessings! Take consolation that we are all journeying together. Remember that I love you, there is no way I will ever love you less and I pray for you every day. Please remember the priests who serve you every day in love. ~ Fr. Behrend
