JEMAIL: The Arabic letter “N” from McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

2014-Aug-19

2014 08 19 arabic N

Dear John,

At Mass on Sunday the Celebrant distributed a two sided prayer card,

The one side said: The symbol, the Arabic letter “N” for “Nazarene” is being used to Mark Christians for persecution.

“We wish to scream, but there are no ears that wish to hear.” (Chaldean Bishop Francis Kalabat)

For the first time in 1,600 years, there is no Sunday Mass in Mosul, Iraq.

“Every day there is a sword in our hearts.” (Father Bazz, Saint Petr’s Chaldean Church, San Deigo.)

The other side has this prayer:

LORD,
The plight of our brothers and sisters is deep and the suffering of Christians is severe and frightening.
Therefore, we ask you Lord to spare their lives to grant them patience and courage to continue their
witness of Christian values with trust and hope.
Lord, peace is the foundation of life; Grant us the peace and stability that will enable us to live with
each other without fear and anxiety, and with dignity and joy.
Glory be to you forever.

I thought that was worth sharing,

Mike

McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated. I agree!]

[JR: Egg on my face. I didn’t realize it was last year. Laff. I love how Google decides what’s new. Must have an ad or something on the page that was updated and applied across the site. Oh well, I am sure it was worth mentioning again. I take editorial notice that none of the regular readers mentioned it was “stale”. Knock, knock, is this thing on?]

Dear John,

I have been trying to determine the year our John Burke graduated from Manhattan. I asked my cousin Tom, who went to Tolentine, if he knew when John graduated from Tolentine:

Jon Burke was Class of 1958 @ Tolentine.
Cousin Tom

That would seem to indicate that he would be the class of 1962 at Manhattan. In the Obituary his son says that he spent time campaigning at the “Central Valley Post office”, and my records show that John P. Burke,’62 resided in Central Valley. Mystery solved!

[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated. Great detective work!]

JEMAIL: Five 2014-er’s go to serve others

2014-Jul-24

Dear John,

The 7/10/14 Edition of Catholic New York has the following piece:

MANHATTAN COLLEGE GRADUATES ACCEPT SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

Five members on Manhattan College’s Class of 2014 have been accepted to serve the Lasallian Volunteers (LV’s), Rostro de Cristo, Jesuit Volunteers Corps (JVC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency Corps (FEMA)

The five graduates, who each received bachelor’s degrees this spring, and the organization they are
serving, are: Anthony DiCesare, National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC)-FEMA program; Tegan Nelson, Rostro de Cristo; Carlos Orbe, LV’s in Tulsa Okla,; Ivy Seraphin, LV’s in Racine, Wis,; and Kathleen White. JVC,. All four organizations assist people in the United States and abroad.

“We’re proud of all our Manhattan Graduates every year, and we have a special spot in our hearts for
our students who pursue full-time volunteer programs here or abroad,” said Lois Harr, director of campus ministry and social action at Manhattan College. “The world needs them to share their unique gifts and talents, and they have incorporated ‘faith,service and community’ into their lives in a very deep and meaningful way.’

Best,
Mike

McEneney, Mike (MC1953)
