JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) shares what ESPN did not see fit to show

2016-Sep-26

Good Morning All,

 
Pete Sweeney shared this incredible footage that ESPN did not see fit to show and I felt, as we say a little prayer for our United States Of America, these shots would resonate with you. Perhaps you might even see your way clear to share it. Thank you for your prayers, your steadfast support for those in need of our prayers and for being you. Thank you Peter. Thank you all. God Bless.

For those who saw the football game on Monday.
We missed this view.
Those who attended the game said it was extremely emotional to see the entire bowl of the stadium turn red, white and blue. It took 90 workers two weeks to get all of the colored card boards mounted under each seat.  Each piece of card board had eye slits in them so the fans could hold up the colored sheet and still see through the eye slits.  Every seat had to have the proper card, with no mistakes, to make this happen.
This is what ESPN failed to show you Monday night.  Apparently, they thought their commercials were more important than showing this scene for about 5seconds.

                The highlight for many was Saturday afternoon whenthere was an opportunity to partake in the Sacrament of Reconciliation(Confession), receive the Sacrament of the Sick (Anointing) and,at Mass, receive the Eucharist!

             As usual the Speakers were outstanding and manyleft on Sunday morning to meet the challenges of the rest of the year with new hope and faith.

     We all look forward to next year.

                  Best,

John Lovett Returns to Manhattan As Assistant Coach

RIVERDALE, NY – Manhattan College Athletic Hall of Fame member John Lovett ’73 has been named an assistant coach with the men’s and women’s cross country/track & field programs.  The 1997 Hall of Fame inductee ran on the Jaspers’ world record-setting distance medley squad at the 1973 NCAA Indoor Championships, which clinched the team title for Manhattan.
 
“I’m glad to be back at Manhattan,” Lovett said.  “This is an exciting time for the school and the program, and I’m excited to be a part of it.  I’m very fortunate to work with Kerri (Gallagher).  She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, having set school records in high school & college and now running at the elite level.”
 
While at Manhattan, Lovett was a five-time All-American and two-time IC4A champion.  He also won four straight Metropolitan Indoor Championships in the 1000 yards.  At the 1973 NCAA Indoor Championships, Lovett ran the leadoff half-mile leg in the distance medley relay.  He posted a split of 1:53.2, as the Jaspers set a world record (9:43.8) in the event.  Manhattan went on to win the team championship, its first national title in any sport.
 
He returns to Riverdale after a successful 16-year career as the head coach at Bishop Kearney High School in Brooklyn.  Lovett guided the Bishop Kearney cross country team to five Brooklyn Conference championships and three Brooklyn/Queens titles.  He also mentored individual Brooklyn/Queens champions in both indoor and outdoor track & field, as well as cross country.  Kerri Gallagher, Manhattan’s Head Coach for Cross Country, Mid Distance and Distance, attended Bishop Kearney, where she was coached by Lovett.
 
“We’re beyond thrilled to have John join the staff,” Gallagher said.  “His experience with Manhattan cross country and track & field is unique and a great resource for our young athletes, giving them a link to our great tradition.  As an All-American and Hall of Famer, he knows how to excel training and competing in New York City.  On a personal level, I’m excited to work with the man who introduced me to running, and I’m looking forward to sharing that with our athletes.”
 
In addition to the distance medley relay, Lovett still holds the school record in the indoor two-mile relay.  He also set two individual school records (880 yards, 1000 yards) during his time at Manhattan and represented the United States in an international meet against the Soviet Union in 1972.

JEMAIL: Gallaher, Peter “peardarban” (MC1965) finds Alma Mater mention

2016-Sep-20

Gallaher, Peter “peardarban” (MC1965) 

The article mentions the school I graduated from in 1965. The short sentence or two mentions one of the reasons I have, for several decades chosen to support other schools than the one I once affectionately referred to as my Alma Mater.

http://legatus.org/catholic-identity-concerns/

In 2015, the NLRB issued a “Certification of Representation” allowing adjunct professors and lecturers at St. Mary’s College in Moraga, Calif., to join the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Earlier that same year, adjunct faculty at St. Michael’s College of Vermont voted in favor of joining the SEIU, and the NLRB ordered its regional officials to reconsider labor disputes involving employees at Manhattan College in Riverdale, N.Y., St. Xavier University Chicago, and Seattle University. School leaders had attempted to block unionization, claiming that such efforts posed a threat to their schools’ religious character.

Sadly, some had already sacrificed their religious character. It’s difficult for St. Mary’s to claim that its faculty supports Catholic teachings when the school has honored abortion proponents like Amy Richards, who visited the Catholic campus to positively proclaim her decision to “selectively reduce” two of her three unborn children.

Manhattan College is also an easy target for the NLRB. Religious studies professor Judith Plaskow published a book arguing that “heterosexism is the fundamentally religious endorsed form of oppression.” Two of Seattle University’s philosophy professors published A Brief, Liberal, Catholic Defense of Abortion, in which they argue that performing an abortion on a non-sentient fetus is like removing plant life.”

In each of these cases, the NLRB has judged that the institutions had distanced themselves so far from the authority and teaching of the Catholic Church that they no longer merited government recognition as religious institutions.

            The September 15, 2016 Edition of the NY Daily News at page 17, has an article that reports that Marisol was successful in her bid to win the Democratic Party Primary for a seat in the NY State Senate.

JEMAIL: McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973) on the Quad’s “smoking” story

2016-Sep-04

Just submitted to the Quadrangle…

It’s sitting “In Moderation” though.  Wanna bet on whether they’ll publish it?  Or even allow the students to SEE it online?

McFadden, Michael J. (MC1973)

This includes marijuana smoking I assume?  After all, if the campus has the ability to enforce a rule against tobacco smoking, particularly in places like dorm rooms, it clearly has the ability (and legal obligation under state and federal law I believe) to enforce the law against marijuana smoking.  The College will not be able to claim that student drug use was beyond its control once it has admitted that it can and does indeed exercise the ability for such control.  It’s quite possibly a dangerous can of legal  worms to open.

2016-Aug-23

Good Afternoon All,

This past Friday I had the pleasure of meeting a nice person, Steve Basler, Father of Fellow Jasper, Katelyn Basler ’06. As we talked he mentioned that Katelyn would be getting married in two weeks. I wanted to share the joy with you and ask for your prayers and good thoughts for Katelyn and her future husband as they prepare to celebrate their union in God’s Grace. We wish them Joy, Happiness and the many Blessings of God’s love as they enter this beautiful phase of their life’s journey. Thank you. God Bless.
