Peter and Arden O'Connor Sr., parents of Arden O'Connor, Founder, and CEO of O'Connor Professional Group, share their experiences navigating the behavioral health care system with their youngest son, Chris. Arden Sr. and Peter were surprised by the early onset and intensity of Chris' substance use. They join Diana to talk about the professionals they hired and how having financial resources was not the only solution to finding appropriate care for Chris. Arden Sr. reveals the helpful advice she received on their journey and which characteristics of the O'Connor family helped them survive and grow. IN THIS EPISODE: [02:10] Peter and Arden Sr. were surprised about their youngest son's addiction problem. [11:45] Paying for professionals kept their son alive. However, throwing money at a problem won't fix it. [14:20] Helpful advice that Arden Sr. received as a mom of an addict. [20:20] How Chris prepared Arden for working with people who suffer from addiction. [26:30] The characteristics of the O'Connor family that helped them survive and grow. KEY TAKEAWAYS: You can't just throw money at a problem and solve it. It's important to live in a community when finding sobriety, especially in early recovery. It may be best to give your loved one a wake-up call by removing them from your home. Forgiveness is a difficult step in the recovery process. However, it will be essential when it comes to navigating the disease of addiction. LINKS MENTIONED: O'Connor Professional Group https://oconnorpg.com/ BIO: Peter and Arden O'Connor Sr., parents of Arden O'Connor, Founder and CEO of O'Connor Professional Group, share their experiences navigating the behavioral health care system with their youngest son, Chris. A graduate of Holy Cross and Harvard Business School and successful real estate entrepreneur, Peter has a family history of alcoholism and is over thirty years sober himself. A dedicated and compassionate stay at home mom, Arden Sr. graduated from SUNY Stony Brook and worked as a probation officer, where she witnessed clients with an array of behavioral health issues. Despite their personal and professional knowledge base, Arden Sr. and Peter were taken aback by the early onset and intensity of Chris' substance abuse. Over the course of fifteen years, Chris cycled through 15 different rehabilitation programs, was prescribed over 25 medications, and worked with approximately 30 different clinical professionals. After spending countless hours doing their own research, hiring family lawyers, and investing over half a million dollars in Chris' care, Arden Sr. and Peter were confused, exhausted and frustrated. Like many families, they couldn't believe the level of turmoil and tragedy that Chris' addiction caused in their otherwise harmonious, talented and blessed family.
Welcome to the sixth episode of The Meat Grinder, GameTimeCT's high school football podcast. This week, with a majority of the GameTimeCT Top 10 taking the week off, it was time to check in on some of the state's biggest stars still playing. On Friday, Sean went to check out Newington's Austyn Howe, who had been tearing it up through four games, only to see Glastonbury ride Jack Petrone and Matt Daniels to their first win of the year while knocking the Nor'Easters off their unbeaten perch. Pete got up early Saturday to check in on Trumbull's dynamic Corbin Smith rip it up against Westhill, while Sean was witness to the showdown in Hartford between good friends Victor Rosa of Bristol Central and Christian Garcia of Hartford Public. The two traded haymakers in a wild, 52-48 BC victory which ended with defense. Before welcoming this week's special guest star -- Trumbull's MARCE PETROCCIO, who talks about Smith, his team's good 3-1 start, and what it takes to coach in 2021 -- Sean and Pete dig into the big problem developing in what is already an ultra-competitive Class L playoff race.

Rev. Dr. Adam Filipek, pastor at Holy Cross and Immanuel Lutheran Churches in Lidgerwood, ND, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Ezekiel 11:1-25. Ezekiel's vision of events in Jerusalem concludes. He hears the wicked leaders in Jerusalem claim that they are safe in Jerusalem as the cream of God's crop. The LORD turns their slogan upside down and promises that they will fall by the sword that they have feared. When Ezekiel sees one of these leaders die in the midst of his vision, he cries out with an intercessory heart, asking about the remnant. The LORD responds with one of the clearest proclamations of the Gospel thus far in Ezekiel. He promises that He will be the sanctuary for His people even in exile. He will give them a new spirit and an undivided, living heart so that they will be His people and He will be their God. The hope of this promise remains even as Ezekiel sees the glory of the LORD leave the Temple entirely and come to rest on the Mount of Olives. Jesus' journey into Jerusalem for His death and resurrection from this very location testifies to the fact that Jesus is the temple where God's glory dwells for us. “The Faithful Watchman” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron that goes through the book of Ezekiel. Just when Ezekiel should have begun his service as priest in the temple in Jerusalem, the LORD called him to be a prophet in exile in Babylon. Through fantastic visions and attention-grabbing action prophecies, the prophet Ezekiel is a faithful watchman who proclaims the word of the LORD to bring people to repentance over their sins and to faith in the coming Savior, Jesus Christ, the glory of the LORD made flesh.
9/05/21 One aspect of this podcast I was excited about most was the opportunity to stay in touch with some of my favorite professors from college. This episode is the first of hopefully many great conversations with former professors from Holy Cross. Steve was my American Film professor who exposed me to some of the greatest American Films in the last 100 years. My favorites from the class were Sunset Boulevard (Billy Wilder, 1950), Something Wild (Jonathan Demme, 1986), The Fabulous Baker Boys (Steve Kloves, 1989), Personal Best (Robert Towne, 1982), and the most tragic for last, Moonlight (Barry Jenkins, 2016). These 5 were among 34 of the best films I've ever seen and watching them/discussing them expanded my ability to appreciate films, if nothing else. Thank you again for taking the time right before the semester kicked off, I look forward to your Best of 2 Years Ago List every year. Enjoy!
A meditation preached by Fr. Eric Nicolai to some Toronto priests in St. Lawrence, martyr parish on Sept 14, 2021, feast of the Exalatation of the Holy Cross. Today we read those stunning words from the hymn of the morning prayer: He endured the nails, the spitting, Vinegar, and spear, and reed; From that holy Body broken, Blood and water, both proceed: Earth, and stars, and sky, and ocean By that flood from stain are freed. And in one of the passages in Andrew of Crete where he quotes about the power of the cross. And if you would understand that the cross is Christ's triumph, hear what he himself also said: When I am lifted up, then I will draw all men to myself. Now you can see that the cross is Christ's glory and triumph. Think of the tremendous scene in the Gospel of the barren fig tree. (Mark 11:12-25) Thumbnail: 12th Century ivory crucifix of Canosa di Puglia, Italy Byzantine origin.
Dan Curran, who is the head coach of the Merrimack College football team, joined Matt Noonan for a brand new Noontime Sports Podcast to discuss his team's exciting win last week against Holy Cross -- the Warriors topped the Crusaders in Worcester, who entered the second week of the 2021 college football season as the 24th best team in FCS -- as well as how a win against a previously ranked opponent will help the squad heading into this week's non-conference clash with Maine. Curran and Noonan also discuss Merrimack's transition from Division II to Division I, memories of competing against Maine as a student-athlete at New Hampshire, and his excitement (and yes, inspiration, too) for teaching and coaching football.

[Comment: Triumph] Friends of the Rosary: We celebrate today the Exaltation of the Cross, a feast that goes back to the seventh century in Rome. This celebration signs the triumph of the Cross, the instrument of our redemption. It's the salvation through Jesus when He was lifted up on the Cross. We identify with Jesus Christ on the Cross. We follow Him by taking our cross by conforming ourselves to the will of the Father, doing penance, exhibiting moral courage, practicing the virtues of patience and perseverance, and self-denying — all of these, fruits of the Sorrowful Mysteries that we pray today. Before and after prayer, we made the Sign of the Cross to keep our mind, heart, body, will, and thoughts aligned with God. Moreover, it signifies that we belong to Christ and we give entirely to Him. The Cross is our sign of victory on earth and the promise of eternal life. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! + Mikel A. | TheRosaryNetwork.org, New York —- Watch this Podcast on YouTube and/or attend the community-driven daily prayer every day at 7:30 pm ET on YouTube.com/TheRosaryNetwork

The “scarlet thread” that runs throughout the scripture is the salvation of man found only in Jesus Christ. It is scarlet because the salvation is ultimately found in the blood of Jesus, and it is a thread because it is foreshadowed and preached about in the Old Testament before being realized in the New. This podcast features readings from the two-year daily lectionary, specifically the lectionary proscribed by the Lutheran Book of Worship (1978) and used in For All the Saints, published by the American Lutheran Publicity Bureau (www.alpb.org). The two-year daily lectionary moves you through the high points of the Bible with a daily reading from the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Gospels. I will also include a reading from the Psalter or Proverbs. There will be no special effects or background music; just the plain reading of God's Word. And no fundraising, either! However, feel free to rate the show if you enjoy it as that helps its visibility. After the two-year cycle, you will have gone through the high points of the Old Testament one time and most of the New Testament about 2 times. While this is not a complete reading of the Bible, it is a great way to grow in familiarity with the main narrative of the Bible. As it follows the liturgical year, festival and saint's days will also be observed. This podcast uses the Revised Standard Version (RSV) of the Bible. It is sponsored by First Lutheran in Houston (www.flhouston.org). You may also be interested in the Theology on Air Podcast which is a Christian apologetics radio program.

She razed the second-century Temple of Aphrodite, which tradition held was built over the Savior's tomb, and her son built the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher on that spot. During the excavation, workers found three crosses. Legend has it that the one on which Jesus died was identified when its touch healed a dying woman. The cross immediately became an object of veneration. At a Good Friday celebration in Jerusalem toward the end of the fourth century, according to an eyewitness, the wood was taken out of its silver container and placed on a table together with the inscription Pilate ordered placed above Jesus' head: Then “all the people pass through one by one; all of them bow down, touching the cross and the inscription, first with their foreheads, then with their eyes; and, after kissing the cross, they move on.” To this day, the Eastern Churches, Catholic and Orthodox alike, celebrate the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on the September anniversary of the basilica's dedication. The feast entered the Western calendar in the seventh century after Emperor Heraclius recovered the cross from the Persians, who had carried it off in 614, 15 years earlier. According to the story, the emperor intended to carry the cross back into Jerusalem himself, but was unable to move forward until he took off his imperial garb and became a barefoot pilgrim. Reflection The cross is today the universal image of Christian belief. Countless generations of artists have turned it into a thing of beauty to be carried in procession or worn as jewelry. To the eyes of the first Christians, it had no beauty. It stood outside too many city walls, decorated only with decaying corpses, as a threat to anyone who defied Rome's authority—including Christians who refused sacrifice to Roman gods. Although believers spoke of the cross as the instrument of salvation, it seldom appeared in Christian art unless disguised as an anchor or the Chi-Rho until after Constantine's edict of toleration.

Why do Catholics exalt the Cross? Today, the Church celebrates the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Dr. Sri explains the history behind this great feast day, and how the Cross reveals the love of Christ and teaches us to lean on our heavenly Father in times of suffering. Snippet from the Show "Jesus didn't go to the Cross so we wouldn't have to, he went to the Cross, so he could live his perfect gift of self giving love in us and through us." _ _ For full shownotes, visit Ascensionpress.com/Allthingscatholic, or text ALLTHINGSCATHOLIC to 33-777 for weekly shownotes sent to your inbox.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. John 3:16–17If Jesus would never have given His life on a cross for the salvation of the world, then a cross would never have been seen in “exultation.” A cross, in and of itself, is an instrument of death, a horrific and violent death. It's also an instrument of humiliation and torture. Yet, today, the Cross is seen as a holy and blessed object. We hang crosses in our homes, wear them around our neck, keep them in our pocket on the end of the rosary, and spend time in prayer before them. The Cross is now an exalted image by which we turn to God in prayer and surrender. But that is only the case because it was on a cross that we were saved and brought to eternal life.If you step back and consider the amazing truth that one of the worst instruments of torture and death is now seen as one of the holiest of images on earth, it should be awe inspiring. Comprehending this fact should lead us to the realization that God can do anything and everything. God can use the worst and transform it into the best. He can use death to bring forth life.Though our celebration today, the “Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross,” is first and foremost a feast by which we give glory to the Father for what He did in the Person of His divine Son, it is also a feast by which we must humbly understand that God can “exalt” every cross we endure in life and bring forth much grace through them.What is your heaviest cross? What is the source of your greatest suffering? Most likely, as you call this to mind, it is painful to you. Most often, our crosses and sufferings are things we seek to rid ourselves of. We easily point to crosses in life and blame them for a lack of happiness. We can easily think that if only this or that were to change or be removed, then our life would be better. So what is that cross in your life?The truth is that whatever your heaviest cross is, there is extraordinary potential for that cross to become an actual source of grace in your life and in the world. But this is only possible if you embrace that cross in faith and hope so that our Lord can unite it to His and so that your crosses can also share in the exaltation of Christ's Cross. Though this is a profoundly deep mystery of faith, it is also a profoundly deep truth of our faith.Reflect, today, upon your own crosses. As you do, try not to see them as a burden. Instead, realize the potential within those crosses. Prayerfully look at your crosses as invitations to share in Christ's Cross. Say “Yes” to your crosses. Choose them freely. Unite them to Christ's Cross. As you do, have hope that God's glory will come forth in your life and in the world through your free embrace of them. Know that these “burdens” will be transformed and become a source of exaltation in your life by the transforming power of God.My exalted Lord, I turn to You in my need and with the utmost faith in Your divine power to save. Please give me the grace I need to fully embrace every cross in my life with hope and faith in You. Please transform my crosses so that You will be exalted through them and so that they will become an instrument of Your glory and grace. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2021 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.

Good Morning, Colorado, you're listening to the Daily Sun-Up with the Colorado Sun. It's Tuesday August 24th. Today - Homelessness has long been an issue in downtown Denver, but now there's a growing number of homeless living in the state's national forests. But before we begin, let's go back in time with some Colorado history adapted from historian Derek R Everett's book “Colorado Day by Day”: Today, we're taking you back to August 24th, 1873 when Photographer William H. Jackson went out in hopes of capturing the Mount of Holy Cross - a natural cross of snow that lay high in the mountains. Lucky for him, and a brief break in the clouds allowed him to make eight negatives of the peak and its snow-formed icon. It's since been reproduced widely - offering religious inspiration to some and proof of the nation's manifest destiny to others. Now, our feature story. Homelessness has been a visible issue in downtown Denver, but during the pandemic, an increased number of homeless camps have been popping up in Colorado's national forests. Sun reporter Jennifer Brown followed a U.S. Forest Service law enforcement officer recently as he went to clear out illegal campers. That gave her the chance to speak with people who have been living in Pike National Forest for weeks, or longer, and to learn how forest rangers try to help when people must move on. The Sun's Daniel Ducassi talks with Brown about the growing number of homeless living in the state's national forests. To read more of Jennifer Brown's reporting on homelessness in Colorado, go to coloradosun.com And Before we go, here are a few stories that you should know about today: A family-owned oil and gas company has been slapped with $1.6 million in fines for a string of violations ranging from improper storage of waste to failing to report and address spills. The fine against KP Kauffman is one of the largest ever handed down by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. The company faces another hearing in September to determine whether it will be allowed to continue doing business in Colorado, where it runs 1,200 low-producing oil and gas wells on the Front Range. Earlier this year K.P.K. was ordered to close 87 wells and clean up 29 sites. The 2020 Paralympic Games open today in Tokyo with 32 Colorado athletes competing. They include Robert Tanaka, who has been working toward competing in judo in the Paralympic games since he was 5 years old. Now 21, the legally blind athlete who trains at dojos in Colorado Springs and Denver, will compete in the 60 kilogram bracket starting on Friday. Two weeks into the school year in Grand Junction, thirty classrooms already have reports of exposure to COVID-positive students and three others were quarantined because at least three students in them tested positive. But masks are not universally required in schools. This has set off debate in Mesa County Valley School District 51 about masks and vaccination that is so fierce that school board members needed a police escort to their cars after their meeting last week.
