Ellis Medicine

The COVID-19 Pandemic has put a strain on all of us at Ellis Medicine; many of us are mentally, physically, and spiritually exhausted. In an effort to offer some hope and healing, the Pastoral Care Department is offering you a recorded, virtual service of hope and healing. The service memorializes all who have died of COVID-19 at Ellis, and also gives recognition and honor for the tireless efforts of all Ellis staff. The service includes prayers, a reflection, and music. It is about 25 minutes long, and we hope you find meaning in it.

CAPITOL INSURRECTIONISTS: I HAVE MET THEM BEFORE  / NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER

February 9, 2021  by Rev. Dr. Mary Foley

 

Tear gas is released into a crowd of demonstrators protesting the 2020 election results at the U.S. Capitol Jan. 6 in Washington. (CNS/Shannon Stapleton, Reuters)

I was deeply affected by our democracy coming under attack one month ago, with the storming of the Capitol by people wielding flags that proclaimed Trump, civil war and Jesus. I was traumatized by hearing people gleeful about the destruction, who were happy that members of Congress were terrorized. Listening to some people in those moments, I felt like I was face to face with evil.

Then, I realized, I have met them before.

I grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, one of eight children of white parents were who involved in the civil rights movement. My parents moved from the South Side of Chicago to this suburb because it was nationally known for its integration policies. However, the Catholic school we attended was not integrated. When riots burned through Chicago after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was killed, my family took in a Black single Mom and her kids who lost their home, until they could get back on their feet again. When my parents enrolled the kids in our school, parishioners boycotted the church collection and sent threatening messages to my mother. The pastor asked my father to take the kids out of the school. I have met them before.

When a series of circumstances put me back on the Southwest Side of Chicago as a young adult, I was horrified to see the American Nazi Party headquarters across the street from our Catholic parish. When I walked a baby stroller through Marquette Park, I tore down signs on lamp posts and light poles that said, “N—– Keep Out,” and “No Afros Allowed.” I learned that it had not been long since the Ku Klux Klan marched through the park. I heard the priest at our parish supporting those who wanted to keep the Western Avenue color line from being crossed. I have met them before.

When living in the Marquette Park neighborhood and my children were small, I was mugged returning from the grocery store one night. The mugger tried to pull me down my front stairs as I was carrying groceries into my house. No one heard my yelling and it was not until the groceries fell and glass broke that the mugger yanked my purse from my arm and took off. Being locked in a bear hug by a mugger was very scary and I called the police. When the officer who came to take the report found out that the mugger was Black, the street was suddenly filled with police cars and the officer asked me, “When we catch him, do you want us to string him up in the tree in front of your house?” The mugger scared me. The police officer terrified me. I have met them before.

When I worked as a young mother to try and change things in my neighborhood and in the church, I did a lot of research about the local area. I read books that recorded stories of Catholics demonstrating against Dr. King when he marched and was attacked in the park. I found a document written by church leaders of different denominations in the Marquette Park neighborhood who were trying to keep the area white. The list of names in this document included the name of the priest who would baptize me as an infant some years later. The people I have met before have been here long before me.

During recent weeks, there has been action taken to hold President Donald Trump accountable, and calls to also hold accountable other politicians who participated in inflaming the people I have met before. Those in law enforcement who proclaim the need for law and order for some people but not for others, and those in Catholic and evangelical churches who proclaim respect for life but only for the unborn, should also be held accountable. All of us need to take stock of how we participated in what happened at the Capitol, through our action or inaction. Otherwise, we are like the people I have met before.

The Rev. Dr. Mary M. Foley is a board certified chaplain, ACPE certified educator, and Roman Catholic Woman Priest who is currently serving the Catholic Apostolic Church in North America, or CACINA.

ALL ARE WELCOME TO BE CACINA CATHOLICS

Posted in change, Christianity, Communion, Great Love, Value by revmtheogene on February 8, 2021

 

CACINA sometimes refers to itself as an independent Catholic church, but it also sometimes avoids the term, “independent,” and talks about itself as a distinctive kind of Catholicism, CACINA Catholicism. So what makes us distinctive? CACINA is a community of believers that seeks to bring the gospel to all people without regard to who they are or where their journey has taken them. CACINA welcomes everyone, regardless of marital status, political belief, or sexual orientation to participate in the life and sacraments of the Church. It asks its members only for the love of self and others that is the privilege of all Christians.

Independent Catholic Churches are, by and large, very small Churches, some of them consisting of one congregation, that claim valid Apostolic Succession of their bishops, though these are often dismissed in mainstream Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican circles as episcopi vagantes (“wandering bishops”)”. Others are real communities made up of real people with a clergy dedicated to service and spreading the gospel. I believe that we in the Catholic Apostolic Church in North America (CACINA) are one of those real communities. You can check us out on the web at http://www.cacina.org.

Optional Memorial of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, Priest

 

Friends, ever wonder when we are in some type of relationship with someone, for example like a co-worker or friend and then all of a sudden that person disappears from your life not wanting anything to do with you? For whatever rhyme or reason. It sort of makes you wonder, especially when you know for sure or really ponder what did I do to that person? Did I do something wrong to offend them?

When people come into our lives, it is for a  reason, the people we encounter are messengers. Whether we invited them or not. There definitely is always a learning process through our encounters with one another.

What happens to the people who are in our lives when we do not respond to them or they do not respond to us?

One particularly important vow that I appreciate the most when in community is the vow of stability. Yes, we may and others in our lives may step in out of said relationships for certain and appropriate reasons, but what about all those other times when people  become comfortable to  be part of the throw away culture. We dismiss people at the drop of a hat when we feel that they have wronged us in the slightest way, and we leave with no true communication or effort to reconcile.

Do I want to hang out with only people who agree with me, who I like, and they like and approve of me all the time? What about the people who do not agree with me? Am I not called to like them as well?

Sisters and brothers the God of our understanding stands on no formalities. God makes God self-available through our everyday existence. God never appears to tap out and says okay I had enough, and surly God never leaves.

bp. Michael Theogene

A reflection by Bishop Tony Green from Saint John of God Parish

 

If you would like to have a reflection considered for publication, please send your writing to Bp. Tony Green at revtonygreen@gmail.com

 

                                                         Independence Day – Celebrate or Observe?

                                                               A reflection by Bishop Tony Green

 

I listen to NPR every morning on my drive to work at Ellis.  This morning, Thursday, July 2nd, I heard reporter Juana Summers report on how every year on the 4th of July we reflect on the promises of the United States of America.  Summers goes on to say, “This year we will reflect on how those promises are not equally fulfilled.”  I listened to several Black Americans describe their struggle to reconcile systemic racism with pride in our country.

One interviewee, Trevor Smith, said, “You grow up hearing and saying  …one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, and then you realize, oh, wait…it has never really meant liberty and justice for all.”  Another interviewee, Timothy Berry, class president of his graduating class at West Point Military Academy, said he finds a lot of contradiction in what the United States says it is and what it actually is.  Berry said he feels his role is to do his part to hold the country accountable.

In years past, I have simply thought of Independence Day in too shallow a way.  I have known since grade school that it represents the Declaration of Independence from British governance.  I have celebrated a lifetime of July 4th’s on the lake, family barbeques, fireworks shows, and cans of Budweiser.

This year I will re-think, hopefully in a deeper way, what has happened, and has not happened that should have happened in this country since July 4th of 1776.  This year, I will observe Independence Day rather than celebrate it.  It is difficult, if not impossible to celebrate the great ideal of liberty and justice when it has yet to become a reality for all – especially for communities of color.

It is a good thing to know history, or we are doomed to repeat it.  I’ll leave you with a paragraph from a speech that Frederick Douglass delivered on July 5, 1852, entitled, What to the Slave is the 4th of July?

“What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciations of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade, and solemnity, are, to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy — a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices, more shocking and bloody, than are the people of these United States, at this very hour.”
