Week 46 | Disciples Together on the Way w/ Bishop Boyea | November 20 to 26 | Corporal Works of Mercy | Donate time and money to local food pantry/soup kitchen

Diocese of Lansing

Dear Sisters and Brothers in the Lord,Welcome to this week's Disciples Together on the Way Challenge. This is our final week focusing on the Corporal Works of Mercy! In the Book of Deuteronomy, the Lord tells us, “There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore, I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow Israelites who are poor and needy in your land.” (Dt. 15:10-11) Since there will always be the poor, there will always be the opportunities to serve and support them.During this time of the year, the needs of the poor tend to increase. As the days grow shorter and colder, food, shelter and appropriate clothing become even more essential. Indeed, next week we will celebrate Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a natural time for us to increase our corporal works of mercy. As we reflect on the bounty and blessings the Lord has bestowed upon us and our loved ones, in gratitude our response can turn to giving back.For many families, this time of year is already a time where they may participate in a food drive, or even go to work at a shelter serving meals to those in need before they go home to enjoy their own celebration. We know from looking at the lives of the saints that many of them achieved their sanctity by serving the poor.  Just think of St. Catherine of Siena in 14th century Italy, Saint Vincent de Paul in 17th century France or, in our own times, St. Teresa of Calcutta in 20th century India. There are many saints who have given their time, talent, and treasure to the poor. Through their actions, they not only brought Jesus to the poor, but also encountered God in them. As St. Vincent DePaul stated, “Go to the poor: you will find God.”In addition to the witness of so many saints in their ministry to the poor, there is also to call to us to this form of holiness and discipleship.  The Book of Psalms tells us “Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked” (Ps. 82:3-4).  We also read in the First Letter of Saint John: “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” (1 Jn. 3:17-18)In recent years, the various Catholic Charities entities throughout the Diocese of Lansing have been working towards greater collaboration with each other and with the parishes near to them. As we wrap up this final week focused on the Corporal Works of Mercy, let us look for more opportunities to help the poor and those in need.So, here's this week's challenge: Donate to your local Catholic Charity or local St. Vincent DePaul food pantry or look for another food pantry or local food drive and donate food or money. And don't just give your money, volunteer to serve in the soup kitchen.See the Diocese of Lansing website, where you can find links to our various organizations and learn about the ways you can help. https://www.dioceseoflansing.org/catholic-charitiesMay God bless you and your families as you prepare to give thanks for all He has done for you, and as you seek out ways to serve the poor in your lives.+ Earl BoyeaBishop of Lansing

El número de personas que intenta cruzar aumentó con la llegada del demócrata Joe Biden a la Casa Blanca, en enero de 2021. Los republicanos han convertido la inmigración ilegal en uno de sus principales temas de campaña de medio mandato. Esto es particularmente cierto en el estado republicano de Texas, fronterizo con México. Por el enviado especial de RFI a San Antonio, Texas La inmigración ilegal es uno de los principales temas de campaña en Estados Unidos. Las autoridades migratorias han contabilizado un incremento significativo de los intentos por cruzar la frontera sur en el último año. A septiembre de 2022, los agentes dicen haberse topado con 2, 7 millones de migrantes, un millón más que el año anterior. San Antonio, Texas, es uno de los primeros lugares a donde son transferidos quienes pasan, en particular el Centro de Recursos para Migrantes, donde los que tienen el visto bueno de la policía pueden quedarse unos días, asearse, comer, antes de conseguir un pasaje para reunirse con sus familias mientras resuelven su situación judicial. Hablamos con algunos migrantes extenuados que salía de este hangar gigante, con acceso restringido. Karina tiene 38 años, es maestra y viene de Venezuela. “Tengo un mes y cuatro días viajando. Me tocó pasar una travesía por la selva del Darién y los subsiguientes para llegar a acá”, explica. “La selva del Darién es la más inhóspita del mundo, donde se encuentra todo tipo de animal feroz, existen robos delictivos, mafias. Hay muchas violaciones, es algo muy feo”, resume. Llegar al refugio de migrantes de San Antonio es un alivio tras cruzar fronteras naturales y policiales. Cristian es un joven venezolano. “En Ciudad Juárez estuve cinco días preso y después otros tres días en Piedras Negras. Fue feo porque te alimentan a puro agua, manzana, hamburguesas”, deplora. Muchos, como Robert, vienen de Nicaragua, fustigando el régimen de Daniel Ortega y la miseria. Dejó a su esposa y tres hijos allá. “Soy un campesino que trabajaba en el campo para llevar el sustento a mi familia hasta la mesa. Pero el problema en Nicaragua es el gobierno, día a día hace que sea muy duro, muy difícil. Imagínate, para un campesino como yo, el salario vale dos cuadernos y un lápiz”, explica. Sin saberlo, estos inmigrantes se han convertido en peones de la política local. Los gobernadores republicanos de Texas y Florida han enviado por autobús o avión desde San Antonio a recién llegados del sur a estados ricos del norte gobernados por demócratas. Estiman que, si estos están a favor de abrir las fronteras, que paguen por los gastos. El republicano Greg Abbott, que desde abril ha enviado a miles de solicitantes de asilo a los estados norteños en protesta por la política migratoria del presiente Joe Biden, se presenta a su reelección. Los inmigrantes trasladados en este marco electoral no parecen al tanto de lo que les ocurre. Antonio Fernández, director general de Catholic Charities, ayuda a migrantes que necesitan sustento o pasajes para reunirse con su familia. “Creo que esas personas han sido engañadas porque claramente ellos no saben dónde van. Les han prometido una cosa u otra y no se ha cumplido”, asegura a RFI.

How a 19-year-old college student defeated anorexia with the help of her family, doctors — and a renewed relationship with God. (0:07) The narrator introduces Maureen Cole, a spirited 19-year-old student at Hope College and an avid dancer. Usually sunny, Maureen's positivity disappeared as she fell into habits that led to an eating disorder, at first unbeknownst to her parents. Marlise Cole, Maureen's mom, explains what she witnessed. (3:00) Maureen Cole describes the conditions that led to her anorexia, starting with the pandemic in 2020. A straight-A student, Maureen describes her reticence to switch to remote learning and dance via Zoom. As the pandemic wore on, she transformed her basement into a full home dance studio, and exercise slowly became an obsession. (7:00) Over Christmas break her senior year of high school, Maureen had a routine physical with her doctor, who told her she had lost 10 pounds. Others seemed to notice she looked fitter, and she liked the attention. (8:23) Slowly, her eating habits changed. She cut sweets and carbs, and began to become obsessed with her diet. She cut condiments, then red meat, then dairy. Eventually — and to Maureen's credit — she realized she might have an eating disorder, but didn't want to tell anyone. Her personality faded, and eventually, others began to take notice. (11:03) Maureen's dance teacher called her parents, who began to panic at the realization of what their daughter was facing. Maureen's body began to show frightening signs of an eating disorder. She started to work with a dietician and physician. (13:40) During fall break her first semester in college, Maureen visited the doctor for a check-up, but she hadn't gained any weight. Her heart rate was frighteningly low, and she realized — finally — that if nothing changed, she was slowly dying. (14:14) Realizing the gravity of the situation, Maureen finally committed to battling her anorexia. Her parents pulled her from dance, and found her a doctor specializing in eating disorders. She began a University of Michigan-sponsored program, Maudsley, to fight her disease. (16:38) Maureen describes the role of faith in her recovery. The realization that God was calling her to great things — not an eating disorder — was crucial, she says. Slowly, she began to see progress. (18:21) As things improved, Maureen's relationship with God did also. Her personality began to return, and she started to develop healthier relationships with food. (20:04) Today, Maureen continues her recovery, but she's back in school at Hope and dancing again. Maureen's mom, Marlise, describes Maureen's newly rediscovered relationship with God. Maureen describes the courage her journey took, and how she continues to battle — all with God's help.

Get your hands dirty with us on this week's show as your host, Justin Mog, sits down for a chat with Jane Evans (Program Director), and Amelia Baylon (Urban Agriculture Sustainability Coordinator) from Common Earth Gardens at Catholic Charities of Louisville (https://cclou.org/common-earth-gardens/). The project works with refugees to increase land access, grow food for families, and prepare for the market. Common Earth Gardens was formerly the Refugee Agriculture Partnership Program (RAPP), which was started in 2007 by Lauren Goldberg and Stephen Bartlett within the Kentucky Office for Refugees (KOR). The first sites established for refugee agriculture were the 7th Street Community Garden and the Southside Community Garden. In 2014, the RAPP program moved to be a program of Catholic Charities of Louisville and supported the establishment of Maplewood Apartments Garden, Francis Center Garden, St. Ignatius Community Garden and Bethany United Garden. Currently, Common Earth Gardens supports six sites. This fall 2022 and spring 2023, Common Earth Gardens will be planting pollinator gardens at the urban agricultural sites around Louisville. This is one of the many efforts they are implementing to increase conservation practices on farmed land here in Louisville! They need volunteers for the plantings, but there are other roles, such as designing and maintaining the garden where volunteers are welcome. Come out and help Common Earth Gardens plant pollinator friendly gardens! Your support will contribute to housing, feeding, and the protection of pollinators that are vital to our food system and environmental health.     Bring water and sunscreen     Wear shoes and clothes that you do not mind getting dirty     Volunteer duties include: sod and weed removal, tilling soil, creating walking paths, laying down landscaping fabric, scattering, planting seeds, flower plugs and shrubs, mulching, watering. Volunteer dates are: Shawnee People's Garden Monday, 10/17: 4-6pm 7th Street Community Garden Tuesday, 10/18: 1-3pm or 3:30-5:30pm Incubator Farm Wednesday, 10/19: 1-3pm or 3:30-5:30pm Southside Community Garden Friday, 10/28: 1-3pm or 3:30-5:30pm More info and sign-ups at http://tinyurl.com/welovepollinators You can get in touch with them at jevans@archlou.org; and baylon@archlou.org.

Welcome to the weekend! This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Saturday, October 8, and Sunday, October 9. It may start out frosty, but temperatures will climb into a pretty nice weekend. According to the National Weather Service there will be widespread frost in the Cedar Rapids area on Saturday, mainly before 9 a.m. But it will be sunny, with an eventual high near 62 degrees. On Saturday night it will be mostly clear, with a low of around 39 degrees. On Sunday it will be sunny, with a high near 72 degrees. On Sunday night it will be mostly clear, with a high near 43 degrees. A Cedar Rapids couple will donate $2.1 million to seven Linn County nonprofits, United Way of East Central Iowa, one of the beneficiaries, announced Friday. The couple, Mike and Jo Cambridge, ran a staffing business called Cambridge TEMPositions in Cedar Rapids for more than 30 years before they retired in 2014. In 2015, the couple donated https://www.thegazette.com/news/cedar-rapids-couple-donates-4-5-million-to-catholic-schools-churches/ ($4.5 million) to five Catholic schools and churches. The seven nonprofits that will receive funds, along with United Way of East Central Iowa, are Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Dubuque, Foundation 2 Crisis Services, Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa, Mercy Medical Center Foundation, the Salvation Army of Cedar Rapids and Willis Dady Homeless Services. Each nonprofit will receive $300,000 over the next three years.  So somebody decided that doing an active shooting drill on election day might be a bad idea. Kirkwood Community College officials on Friday notified the campus they're postponing an active shooter drill previously planned for Election Day, Nov. 8 — a delay that came after some faculty and staff voiced concern about the drill's timing and potential to disrupt voting. In the Friday “special update” announcing the active threat drill would be moved, Kirkwood Public Safety officials said they're working with the Cedar Rapids Police Department to find an alternative date. The entities originally picked Nov. 8 for the drill on Kirkwood's main Cedar Rapids campus solely because it worked for everyone's schedules according to a Kirkwood spokesman. Kirkwood's Cedar Rapids campus hosts two polling places, and its Iowa City campus hosts one polling place. A $5 million grant will aid an overhaul of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum in West Branch, the state announced Friday, the same day former President George W. Bush was in Cedar Rapids to help raise funds for the museum's renovation. The grant was issued by the state's economic development agency through a program that promotes tourism. The grant is funded by federal pandemic relief funding, which Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds originally opposed.  Herbert Hoover is the only U.S. president born in Iowa. https://hoover.archives.gov/ (The museum) features information about Hoover and his wife, First Lady Lou Henry Hoover. The Hoover Presidential Foundation is in the midst of https://www.thegazette.com/news/herbert-hoover-presidential-library-and-museum-open-again-in-west-branch/#:~:text=by%20Iowa%20taxpayers.-,Fundraiser,-One%20of%20the (a $20 million capital campaign) to renovate the museum's permanent galleries and exhibit galleries. The project will include the addition of 2,250 square feet of updated and interactive displays, and a modernized visitor experience. Former President Bush was scheduled Friday to https://www.thegazette.com/government-politics/former-president-george-w-bush-will-be-in-cedar-rapids-friday-heres-why-hes-here/ (receive a humanitarian award and headline a fundraiser for the museum).

*Pulling back the curtain on the foster system, a foster family and case workers explain the joys and challenges of fostering * (0:06) Tom and Anne Marie Malysz of St. John Fisher Chapel University Parish in Auburn Hills discuss how becoming foster parents has changed them, relying on the Lord's help. (2:09) In Part 1, the Malysz family talks about how they became involved in fostering, the expectations they had going in, and how divine providence played a role in helping the couple agree to take on the responsibility. (6:11) The couple takes an orientation class, undergoes an arduous licensing process, and is paired with a case worker. Despite stereotypes to the contrary, the couple says they were pleasantly surprised by the painlessness of the process. (7:02) The Malysz family welcomes their first foster children, an infant boy and his two-year-old sister. They discuss how their biological children reacted and what it was like. Since then, they've fostered a total of five children. (8:20) The couple discusses the challenges and joys of fostering, including the knowledge they are helping a family in need. For the Malyszes, their Catholic faith is a big component of it all. (11:28) The couple admits it's bittersweet when a child leaves their home, because they don't often get further contact with the child. But they hope that somehow, the child's future was changed for the better as a result of their stay. (13:30) In Part 2, Kristie Harden, director of child welfare for Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan, and her staff explain the ins and outs of the foster care process. Hardin discusses the paperwork, training and background checks involved. (16:15) Hardin discusses how a child becomes removed from his or her birth family and is placed in the foster system. The goal isn't to place a child with a foster family, however. The goal is always reunification with the child's birth family. (17:25) Lyda McRoberts, one of CCSEM's case workers, talks about how the system encourages reunification by working with parents and children on treatment plans and services. She is in constant communication with a child's birth parents, and supervises planned visits. She also conducts regular checks with the foster family to ensure the child's wellbeing. (20:07) McRoberts talks about what a supervised visit looks like. It's awkward at first, she admits, but important to see how birth parents interact with and care for their children. (24:07) While reunification is the ultimate goal, it's not one that's often met. That makes case workers' jobs seem exhausting and thankless, but the interest of children and the cooperation of foster families makes the sacrifice worth it, McRoberts says. (24:49) Ross Henson, a licensing specialist with CCSEM, discusses the process of ensuring a foster family is ready to take on a child, including home visits. Henson discusses the shortage of foster families willing to take on children, making his job even more important. (29:48) Hardin offers an appeal to those considering becoming foster parents: Educate yourself, but don't be afraid of the process. It's not scary, and for those who are called, it can be one of the most rewarding experiences in the world.

Loyola principal's first book, 'The Urban Playbook (https://eastmaneducationalconsulting.com/),' a blueprint for empowering young Black men with the tools to succeed (0:05) Wyatt Jones III, Ph.D., reads an excerpt from his book, "The Urban Playbook," about when he told his father, Deacon Wyatt Jones II, about his new job as the dean of students at Loyola High School. Deacon Jones was at home in hospice care and didn't respond to the news verbally, but Wyatt could sense the pride coming from his “superman.” Two days later, Deacon Jones died, an event which Wyatt says led to the birth of his “inner beast.” (1:00) The narrator introduces Wyatt Jones III, now principal and alumni of Loyola Catholic High School in Detroit. In the summer of 2022, Wyatt published his book, “The Urban Playbook,” which he describes as a guide to building genuine and sustainable relationships with Black boys. The book is a summation of his lifelong knowledge from personal experience and as an educator. (2:52) The narrator discusses the educational landscape of inner-city Detroit. Although Black males are statistically less likely to graduate than their peers, Wyatt has set out to change that at Loyola Catholic High School. (3:57) The narrator shares how Loyola has been an exception to Detroit high school norms and introduces DJ, a former student and mentee of Wyatt. DJ describes growing up in Detroit and becoming involved in a gang. After getting into trouble, DJ was sent to Loyola Catholic High School during his junior year of high school, where he met Wyatt. (6:38) Wyatt shares his first impressions of DJ as an angry, hardened teen, but Wyatt recognized that DJ needed someone to tell him that they loved him and believed in him. (9:05) The narrator talks about the chapter in Wyatt's book that is devoted to DJ. Wyatt shares details of the chapter. (9:38) DJ talks about Wyatt's impact on his life and how eventually, DJ was chosen to be a leader on his Kairos retreat, despite his protests. The retreat changed his life, and DJ grew as a leader among his peers. (11:39) The narrator reads an excerpt from a letter Wyatt wrote to DJ on his Kairos retreat. (12:19) DJ shares how much Wyatt meant to him and how he shaped him into the man that he is today — as a director of a hospice company, a father and a husband. (13:55) Wyatt shares how proud he is of DJ and how honored he is to know him. Wyatt says that walking with young men like DJ is how he wants to evangelize.
