COMMENT: Insull, Bob (MC1963) remembers Muller, Bruce P. [MC1957 RIP]

2018-Mar-26

RE: Obit notice here for Bruce P. Muller (’57 S)

I had the good fortune to be an undergraduate student under Bruce’s tutelage at Manhattan College from 1960 to 1963. I took most of my major coursework in his classes, worked for him in various academic undertakings (Testing Center Aide, Teaching Assistant, Research projects, etc.) and became a friend of his entire and extended family (including – together with my then yet-to-be wife – babysitting his children!). After graduation and further training in psychology, I worked for and with Bruce in several clinical and academic settings while becoming his neighbor in Bethel, CT where we would have Sunday-morning coffee just about every week for 16 years.

Other than my wife, no single individual has had as much influence on the person I see myself today – a successful psychologist (now retired), a person with an inquiring mind, cosmopolitan tastes and one with a solid sense of humor and a healthy disrespect for convention and authority. A piece of my bedrock has passed. RIP good friend

Public service pays off: Greenwich exec sets up Catholic scholarship fund for kids of police, nurses, firefighters

GREENWICH — Greenwich and Stamford nurses, police officers and firefighters who want a Catholic education for their children may find it a bit easier to pay the tuition bills — thanks to a local businessman and his wife.

Longtime Greenwich residents Mary Alice and Thomas O’Malley have committed $500,000 to the nonprofit Foundations in Education over the next five years to establish the scholarship fund for students to attend Trinity Catholic High School in Stamford.

*** and ***

Thomas O’Malley said he and his wife created this scholarship fund because they found Foundations in Education “innovative” and because Trinity Catholic offers “a superior educational product.” The O’Malleys have also made donations to Waterside School and Villa Maria School in Stamford. They gave $10 million to Manhattan College in the Bronx, N.Y., the largest donation in the school’s history, to finance a new student center. Thomas is a graduate of the Catholic liberal arts college and a former chairman of the school’s board of trustees.

Discipline Changed Bernie

Bernard F. Ellrodt, Jr. was born in 1942 and grew up in Elmsford, New York, 25 miles north of midtown, Manhattan, New York City.

Bernie attended 16 years of Catholic schools and he graduated from Archbishop Stepinac High School in 1959. Notable alumni are actors Jon Voight and Alan Alda, Jr.

“The discipline I received in high school turned my life around as I was headed for big trouble with characters I hung around with,” Bernie said.

Bernie earned a NY State scholarship to Manhattan College in The Bronx, New York, where he joined AFROTC with aspirations to become a fighter pilot. Mayor Rudy Giuliani also graduated from Bernie’s college.

COMMENT: Apoldo, Lou (MC1963) agrees it’s time for concern about American Catholics

2016-Oct-23

With 40% of parish Catholics not registered or not voting, this is an indictment of the lack of leadership of our American clergy, to encourage parishoners from the pulpit to exercise their rights as American citizens.  This will be especially important in the upcoming presidential election, where recently released emails have indicated that the party in power is desparately trying to minimize the impact of religion (and the Catholic religion in particular) on American life, so that that they can impose their own secular non-judgemental principles that will promote their “If it feels good do it in the middle of the road” philosophy on a dumbed down America.  If this election goes the wrong way, religious Americans can lose some or all of their First Amendment religious rights, under the policies of a uberliberal government and a socialist Supreme Court.  It’s time for concerned American Catholics to be sure to vote, and to buy more ammo, just in case.
