St. Joan of Arc Parish Update: Week of July 10, 2022
1) Archbishop Paul F. Russell inaugurates ministry as Detroit's 31st auxiliary bishop
From Detroit Catholic: Archbishop Paul F. Russell was inaugurated as the Archdiocese of Detroit’s newest auxiliary bishop during a welcoming Mass at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament on July 7.

Archbishop Russell has served in the diplomatic corps for the Catholic Church all around the world.

But if a late former Detroit ordinary had had his way, Archbishop Russell’s ministry in Michigan would have begun a lot sooner.

Bishop (later Cardinal) Edmund C. Szoka of Gaylord confirmed Russell, a native of Massachusetts who grew up in Alpena in northern Michigan with his mother, in the 1970s.

When Bishop Szoka heard Russell was discerning the priesthood — but wanted to study for the Archdiocese of Boston, where his father lived — Bishop Szoka extolled him, “You belong in Michigan.”

As a seminarian at St. John Seminary College in Boston, Russell was tasked with welcoming bishops from around the country to the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston. Once, in that role, he came across Cardinal Szoka, then-archbishop of Detroit, who again extolled him, “You belong in Michigan.”
The pestering didn’t end there.

2) Friends, family welcome Archbishop Russell to Detroit with open arms

From Detroit Catholic: Representatives from different chapters in Archbishop Paul F. Russell’s life attended a welcoming Mass at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament on Thursday, July 7, to celebrate and support their friend and colleague as he was inaugurated as the Archdiocese of Detroit’s newest auxiliary bishop.

The atmosphere surrounding the Mass was one of joy and excitement as those who already knew Archbishop Russell told Detroit Catholic about his charisms and the gifts he would bring to Detroit. Those who had just been introduced to him via news coverage and his homily at Mass expressed excitement for how he would enrich the life of the church in Detroit.

“He is a very prayerful man,” fellow Auxiliary Bishop of Detroit Robert Fisher, a longtime friend of Archbishop Russell, said. “He brings to our archdiocese this unique world perspective with the experience he has had of ministering in different places around the world. He brings a unique perspective that is really going to enrich our archdiocese.”

In the first several rows of the church sat numerous people from his hometown of Alpena, a town in northern Michigan, who made the journey south to support their lifelong friend.

Christine Stephens has been friends with Archbishop Russell since childhood, and they share an aunt and uncle by marriage. Stephens was not surprised by the appointment.

“He's been all over the world, and so we're just thrilled that he's back in Michigan and that we get to see him,” Stephens said. “He is wise with the wisdom of the Lord, and obviously, he's very kind. He's a very intelligent man. He's a wonderful pastor. He's just a gentle, loving man.”

Stephens and her husband Hans said they are thrilled that their friend is now only four hours away instead of up to four days away.

Hans said that Archbishop Russell would not only bring a global perspective to Detroit, but he is “the real deal,” and an incredibly faith-filled man.

8) 'I Am Here' campaign shares power of the Eucharist in a 'uniquely Detroit way'

Partnership between the Archdiocese of Detroit, Hallow app a response to U.S. bishops' call for National Eucharistic Revival
From Detroit Catholic — It was 3 a.m. during a parish-sponsored retreat, and Marie Wilkie of Our Lady of Sorrows Parish in Farmington Hills was in her pajamas, drowsily sitting before the exposed Blessed Sacrament in the chapel.

Wilkie wasn’t very familiar with Eucharistic adoration, but she was drawn to the presence of the Lord before her.

While chaperoning students on a trip to St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Karen Ervin of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Plymouth stumbled into an adoration chapel. Following the example of the nuns praying before the Blessed Sacrament, she sank to her knees. Overwhelmed with emotion, Ervin got up to leave, and Christ clearly spoke to her, saying, “Stay with me.”

Over and over again, Christ calls out from his exposed place in the adoration chapel and invites his beloved children to stay with him, to sit in silence and be present with him — “I am here,” he says.
These stories are at the heart of the new I AM HERE campaign, a partnership between the Archdiocese of Detroit and the Hallow app created to support the U.S. bishops' three-year National Eucharistic Revival and to inspire people to encounter Jesus in the Eucharist and experience his transformative power.

The revival will kick off locally June 19, the feast of Corpus Christi, when Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron will lead a two-mile Eucharistic procession from the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament to Sacred Heart Major Seminary.

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: 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 - July 10, 2022, The Fifteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time
14) Sunday Reflections by Jeff Cavins
Jeff Cavins reflects on this Sunday’s Gospel, the story of the Good Samaritan. The Sunday Readings are:

First Reading: Deuteronomy 30:10-14
Responsorial Psalm:
Psalms 69:14, 17, 30-31, 33-34, 36, 37
Second Reading: Colossians 1:15-20
Gospel: Luke 10:25-37
15) Bishop Barron's Reflection for the Fifteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time
Friends, the Gospel for this Sunday is one of Jesus’ best-known parables: the story of the Good Samaritan. Karl Barth, who learned it from the Church Fathers, taught that every parable of Jesus, at the deeper level, is finally about Jesus himself. The parable of the Good Samaritan is a good example of this principle; it is fundamentally about Christ healing fallen humanity.
16) Grow+Go for the Fifteenth 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
Side Door Surprises: The side door to my house is really my “front” door. I RARELY use my front door, and as a result, it often fills with cobwebs and other surprises. Ironically, just last week, the batteries in the electronic locks at my side door died without much warning. I usually let the lights that indicate the battery needs replacing in that lock go for about a week before I replace it. I’ve learned that’s about the amount of warning time I have. But this time, the batteries died only after two days of warning (I must have had cheap batteries in the unit). So, when I left the office (okay, very late that night) and walked over to my house, I couldn’t get in through my side door. Being a little annoyed that I hadn’t replaced the battery, I walked over to my front door but couldn’t remember if I had my front door key on my keyring. Thankfully, I had that key, but the obstacle then was navigating the box I had sitting on the other side of that door that was now preventing me from opening it enough for me to get through it. All this is to say that my life can get complicated at times! Eventually, I got through the door without much fanfare, and I immediately took the time to replace the battery that caused all of this mess.
But my side door is my primary door. And many people know that. So, as a result, I get all kinds of surprises at my side door. Sometimes I find mail for the Parish Center that people drop off after hours. Sometimes the surprise can be pop cans because people couldn’t locate the pop can recyclable bin. Sometimes, and more often than not, it is a surprise package of some snack or food. Needless to say, that’s often where my mind goes when I spot a package at my side door.
One day as I was nearing my house, I spotted a plastic bag at my door. Naturally, I was intrigued and immediately thought I had some excellent primary food items containing chocolate at my door. Whatever was in the plastic bag looked oblong. Was it a chocolate cheesecake? Was it a box of chocolate cookies? Maybe it was something for dinner. I had all of these thoughts going through my mind.
As I approached my door, I was already licking my chops in anticipation of the incredible surprise waiting at my doorstep. I picked up the bag and was surprised by its weight. I then looked inside, and the surprise was on me! There was no food at all. Instead, the plastic bag contained several old bibles that someone wanted us to dispose of. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m always happy to see the Word of God just appear on my daily path of life. BUT, I had food on my mind, just a different type of food. I wasn’t giving up hope that maybe, just maybe, another surprise was waiting for me in that bag. I looked through the bag and between the bibles rather thoroughly, hoping that maybe there was a chocolate candy bar sandwiched in there someplace. There wasn’t! Oh well. My big balloon was busted. I took the bag and put the bibles where we have similar items waiting to be burned or buried. But now that chocolate was on my mind (okay, a 24/7 reality), the hunt for some chocolate was on. And, don’t you worry, I know where ALL the chocolate is hidden on this campus, and I have the key to the key box, which then makes it all accessible!
CSA Update: Thanks to your generosity, we have $90,740 in pledges toward our $211,447 goal (Note: these numbers were from our CSA report prior to the 4th of July holiday which is when this article was written. You can find our current CSA numbers above). To all who have contributed to the CSA thus far, thank you for your generosity! Even though we are at the $90,740 mark, we still have a long way to go to reach our ultimate goal of $211,447. What’s impressive to me is that 334 families alone have helped us reach our $90,740 total pledged amount. The total number of families contributing thus far is only 10% of our parish! Imagine what we could do if every one of our 3,318 families gave something to the CSA!
I have to admit I’ve been amazed at the number of people lately who stop me and say, “OH, I keep forgetting to drop off my CSA stuff.” Well, don’t forget … please! Maybe your CSA material got lost in the shuffle of papers on your counter or desk, or the material got lost in your inbox. Please do help us reach our goal. The easiest way to give is electronically at or by following the link on the homepage of our parish website. Let’s do what we can in prayer and action to make this year’s CSA a huge success.
Sacrament of the Sick – Part Two: I began this series on the Sacrament of the Sick last week by looking at how Extreme Unction gave way to our current understanding of the Sacrament of the Sick. The change in the theological understanding of the sacrament (namely that it’s not only for the dying) was the work of the Second Vatican Council and Pope Saint Paul VI. Every time I write about this topic, I recall with a smile some of my hospital visits where perplexed patients worried I was giving them their “last rites.” I remember one such visit in particular. After I said the prayers and anointed this one person in the hospital for a relatively minor situation, they had a worried look. Noticing the worried look, I asked what was wrong. With a crunch of the forehead and eyes locked on my eyes, my anxious patient asked, “Did you just give me last rites?”
Christ had enormous compassion for the sick. Christ’s many healings were not only a sign that God had visited his people but were a sign of the very nearness of the Kingdom of God. The Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us (CCC 1503-1505): “Jesus has the power not only to heal, but also to forgive sins (cf. Mk. 2:5-12); he has come to heal the whole man, soul and body; he is the physician the sick have need of (cf. Mk 2:17). His compassion toward all who suffer goes so far that he identifies himself with them: ‘I was sick and you visited me (Mt. 25:36).’ His preferential love for the sick has not ceased through the centuries to draw the very special attention of Christians toward all those who suffer in body and soul. It is the source of tireless efforts to comfort them.” Christ was so moved by those who suffer that he not only allowed himself to be touched by the sick, but he made their miseries his own. The prophet Isaiah reminds us that the suffering servant would take on our infirmities and bare our diseases and weaknesses. “By his passion and death on the cross, Christ has given a new meaning to suffering: it can henceforth configure us to him and united us with his redemptive Passion.” 
Uniting our sufferings to the sufferings of Christ is often an overlooked practice in our human experience (okay, read this sentence again). It is hard to look beyond ourselves or our own situation when we are sick. Yet, there is incredible value in seeing how our sufferings unite us with Christ’s redemptive Passion. Our sufferings have a redemptive value, and we need to awaken ourselves to such a reality. Next week I will take a closer look at Christ’s redemptive suffering and how we participate in that reality.
Enjoy the week. Know of my prayers.
In Christ,
Msgr Mike Simply Signature
19) Tire Tracks in the d’Arc
To Love With God’s Love: With God’s love, the seemingly impossible becomes possible. With His love, a complete stranger becomes a neighbor and a course of action that may have a hundred reasons to reject, is chosen with ease. 

In today’s Gospel, we have Jesus’ very famous parable of the Good Samaritan, a parable that seeks to answer a simple question: “Who is my neighbor?” And the answer is just as simple: anyone in need. 

The priest in the parable feared being made unclean, because the laws dictated that those who associated with the sick and dying were to be cleansed for seven days before partaking in religious services again, and for him to even check to see if the man was dead meant he risked defilement, so he not only passed this man by, he did so on the opposite side of the road, so as to completely avoid any contact. 

The Levite, too, was afraid, but for different reasons, because this road was obviously full of bandits and thieves and they were known to use decoys as a way to lure those passing by and those decoys were usually sick and seemingly dying people. Given how treacherous and unsafe the road was, the Levite let his fear dictate his choice and he chose to not just pass him by, but, like the priest, to do so on the opposite side, so as to, again, avoid any contact with the man. 

It was only the Samaritan, someone who was not well-liked by the Jewish people and probably a mutual dislike, who chose to take the risk. He risked becoming undefiled, he risked possibly being ambushed by thieves and bandits, and, if that wasn’t enough, he not only tended to this unknown man’s wounds, he brought him to an inn. 

The wounded man might have been a bandit himself and, in spite of that, the Samaritan paid for him with money he may or may not have needed for himself. 

This is the model that Jesus gives us; this is what it means to be a neighbor and to love our neighbor as ourselves, because love, true Christian love, produces charity and charity, in the words of St. Gertrude: “makes its own what belongs to our neighbors.” Any charitable deed, any work that we do, must be motivated by love, not simple, emotional and attached love, but love in its truest form, that is, sacrificial, unassuming and selfless. Sacrificial love takes on the burden of another and makes it your own. 

It was St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta who put it well, she said: “If we pray, we will believe; If we believe, we will love; If we love, we will serve.” 

Yet, unfortunately, when we turn on the news today this is not the case, we have found more ways to hurt, to kill, to defame, to denounce and to destroy each other than to love one another. And, while it certainly comes down to respecting another, to understanding each other, there is unfortunately, one thing that is still missing.

When we speak of love, we speak of it as if it is our own, but it is not, even Jesus reminds us of this, because in order to truly love we need to experience love, and that can’t happen unless we spend time with the source of love, He who is love itself. 

Without God, all love is still wanting. That is why while the world tells us to stop praying, it is only by praying that the world can find peace, can find true love again. 

In fact, at every Mass this is made clear, because, when the priest, holds up the Eucharist he is holding before you a beating heart, holding the essence, the very source and the center of all of our love, which is probably why science has shown in that in most Eucharistic miracles tissue from the heart is present in the host. 

What we receive, when we do so mindfully and with reflection, becomes a part of who we become. We then love not with our own abilities, but with God’s, so that we’re able to truly love everyone, through, with and in Him. 

Then with St. Mother Teresa, we too can say: “I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper's wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself.”

Our lives then should be motivated and led strictly and only by the love of God. Granted, sometimes we tend to get in His way, and not let His love work. That’ s the struggle of being a Christian, of letting His Will be done in spite of our own, because true love gives of itself in spite of itself. There is nothing greater in the entire universe than to know that we are men and women freely-governed and led by God’s Will and by our love for Him.

Our Gospel today began with a question: “what must I do inherit eternal life?” The answer is simply this: to love God with the entirety of ourselves, with all our heart, all our being, all our strength and all our mind, and, by doing so, everything else follows, love of neighbor, peace of heart, and obedience to His Will. When we do that, we not only love with a supernatural love, we do the seemingly impossible, we go out to our neighbor, and like the Samaritan, we serve the Lord.
You are in my prayers this week.

Fr. Andrew

21) Words on the Word: July 10, 2022 – Got God?

It seems like it should be so easy; God doesn’t ask us to follow a complex set of difficult-to-understand rules.

One can almost hear the frustration in Moses’ voice when he’s speaking to the people in today’s first reading from the book of Deuteronomy:

“If only you would heed the voice of the Lord, your God, and keep his commandments and statutes that are written in the book of the law,” he begins. “For this command that I enjoin on you today is not too mysterious and remote for you. It is not up in the sky … nor is it across the sea … No, it is something very near to you, already in your hearts; you only have to carry it out.”

He’s speaking, of course, about making God prominent in their lives.

And yet, here we are, centuries later, still struggling as a people to do so.

Media reported a few weeks ago on a new Gallup poll, conducted in early May, which showed 81 percent of people indicated they believe in God, which is down from 87 percent who answered affirmatively 5 years ago, “the lowest percentage since the public opinion polling company first asked the question in 1944,” according to a story in the New York Post.

What’s more, the story went on to describe certain age categories and political beliefs that showed the steepest rate of disbelief.

It’s an extremely disconcerting trend, to be sure, and one that, upon close review and scholarly evidence, flies in the face of fact and reason.

The scholar of the law who spoke with Jesus in today’s gospel passage from St. Luke articulated it perfectly:

“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind…,” he says.

And that starts with simple belief.
