Things Above from Fr. Bilot As you read this article, I will be ending my vacation with family up north at Burt Lake State Park. I will be back in the office on Monday. I pray that you, as well, have an opportunity to take some down time to enjoy the beauty of summer, though it has been really hot at times! I am not complaining though. In the dead of winter, with wind chills below zero, I longed for the hotter temperatures with sunny, blue skies. The extreme weather conditions remind me that everything in life needs moderation -- from temperatures, our work load, the amount of food we consume, and, in general, living a balanced life. In my prayer time, I find myself dialoguing with the Lord about having a balance. There is always so much going on in life that creating a balance is challenging. I always trust that my time of prayer with the Lord will center me so I may do the work entrusted to me and let go of the stuff that seems to bog me down. Also, going to the Sacrament of Reconciliation is a great way to define the imbalances of life, work through them, and move forward with resolve and purpose -- thus, finding a balance. Pride leads to many sins and throws us off balance. Remember, Evil desires to keep us off balance -- keep us guessing. The evil spirit of the enemy desires an imbalance so that we will turn to the unhealthy pleasures of life which, in turn, keep us away from the Lord. I notice that when people feel shame or guilt because of their infractions, they stay away from the Lord because “he will never forgive me.” When we hear these words or ones like them, we must realize they are coming from the evil one and not God. God desires mercy and restoration of love. Renounce evil thoughts as soon as you think of them or hear yourself saying them! Speaking of the goodness of God’s love and mercy, I am delighted to let you know that the 600-pound marble statue of Mary arrived on July 3. With the help of several men exhibiting courage and determination, Our Blessed Mother was placed in her rightful place in the Marian Shrine. The next step is to pour the floor in the Shrine and, once this is completed, the finishing touches of landscaping can be done. My hope is to have the Blessing of the Marian Shrine on the evening of the Solemnity of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother (August 15), which is a Holy Day of Obligation. After the evening Mass (please note the Mass time change -7:30PM), we will have a candlelight procession from the Church to the Shrine, culminating in the blessing. We are working out all the details and, as they unfold, I will let you know. In the meantime, save the date and take a moment to see this beautiful work of art. The Shrine is located at the south end of the convent off N. Silvery Lane. Finally, if you recall, last year a man set off a commercial grade firework in the Adoration Chapel. I just received word from David’s grandfather that David will be transferred from the county jail to the Eisenhower Center in Ann Arbor for

treatment. If you recall, he is a veteran and served three tours of duty in the Middle East. He was diagnosed with PTSD and brain trauma. I am pleased that he finally will be receiving the help he needs and deserves. Our men and women risk their lives for security and peace for all people, especially those here in the United States. Please continue to pray for David and for all the men and women who have served or are serving in the military. Blessings of Gratitude, Fr. Jim Bilot

This weekend we welcome Fr. Paul Galetto from the Augustinian Friars, St. Thomas Province. They are one of three Provinces in the United States. Ministries are located on the east coast of the United States, with missions in Japan and Peru. They work as Catholic priests and brothers in the community of Augustinians in serving the world and living by the Rule established by Saint Augustine of Hippo. Please welcome Fr. Paul Galetto and be as generous as your heart tells you!

Scripture and Humanae Vitae As I continue my reflections on Humanae Vitae during this month marking the 50th anniversary of this document written by Bl. Pope Paul VI, which gave us a clear explanation of the Church’s teaching on artificial contraception, I came across an interesting article recently about Scripture and Humanae Vitae. We might be tempted to think that the Bible doesn’t give us any clear guidance on the use of contraception because there is no explicit mention of the practice. However, there are many morally objectionable acts that we would all agree are wrong that are also not explicitly mentioned in the Bible. For example, polygamy is not mentioned in scripture but generations of both Jews and Christians have come to clearly realize that this practice is not just wrong but incompatible with God’s law. The same is true about contraception. Dr. Mary Healy, a professor at Sacred Heart Major Seminary, has given us a list of four examples of how Scripture informs our perspective on the use of contraception. Her article, “Children Are a Blessing from the Lord,” can be found in the seminary magazine Mosaic. Here are the four biblical truths that Dr. Healy gave as a scriptural foundation for the prohibition of contraception.

4. The biblical truths articulate in St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body According to St. John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body,” Dr. Healy explains how we can see that “God designed the marital act to be the visible expression of a covenant in which a man and woman give themselves to one another entirely and without reserve—including their potential motherhood or fatherhood.” - Fr. Matthew Hood

1. Children are a gift from God The first blessing and commandment given in scripture is found in Genesis 1:28: “God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth….’” Here we can see that a husband and a wife participate in God’s own plan of creation through their sexual union as they work to co-create with God through the gift of new life. 2. God is mysteriously involved in the act of conception In 1 Samuel 2:21, Hannah is healed of her barrenness through God’s direct intervention, “The LORD visited Hannah, and she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters.” Dr. Healy states that “In every conception of a human life, God performs a new act of creation: A new person with an eternal destiny comes into existence, a new face reflecting God’s image in the world in a way it has never been reflected before. To refuse this mysterious divine action is to shut the door in God’s face and exclude him from the great mystery that is meant to image him in the world (cf. Eph 5:32).” 3. Contraceptive acts are disordered in their nature In Genesis 38, we can see the story of Onan, who is the son of Judah, whose brother has recently died. According to tradition, it was proper for Onan to take his brother’s wife as his own which would continue his brother’s heritage as their children would be considered descendants of his brother. “Onan, however, knew that the offspring would not be his; so whenever he had intercourse with his brother’s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground, to avoid giving offspring to his brother. What he did greatly offended the Lord, and the Lord took his life…” (Gen. 38:9-10). The selfishness of Onan to contracept the marital act resulted in the loss of his life because it was a direct attempt to impede God’s purpose for human procreation.


Divine Child Religious Education Classes will be moving to Monday evenings this Fall 6:15pm - 7:30pm! Our new schedule will begin on Monday, September 17. We will have registration forms in the bulletin and online soon, and there will be a table after the Masses in August.

Parish-Wide Summer Book Read

How do I find fulfillment in life? How do I obtain happiness? These

perennial questions are increasingly asked in today’s directionless world… The ideal of happiness comes from our own education and experience, but whether we notice it or not, is also strongly shaped by mainstream culture and the media. Usually such happiness is fragile – unable to stand up under sickness, failures, separations, and the various trials we encounter. Yet, I believe human life is a marvelous adventure. Despite the burdens of suffering and disappointments, it offers us means to grow in humanity, freedom and interior peace, while exercising our entire capacity for love and joy. There is, however, one condition. We must give up our own agendas and allow ourselves to be led in life, in happy events and difficult ones, while learning to recognize and accept the calls addressed to us day by day. “Call” is the keyword of this book…These calls come to us in many ways. Sometimes they come through experiences or by the example of others who touch us, sometimes from desires that arise in our hearts or requests from people who are close to you, often from Holy Scripture. They originate from God, who gives us life, never ceases to watch over us, and wants tenderly to lead and constantly intervene for each of his children in a way that is discreet, often imperceptible, yet efficacious. Although many are, unfortunately, unaware of this presence and action of God, they reveal themselves to those who know how to place themselves in the attitude of listening and availability. In the pages that follow, I mean to show the importance and fruitfulness of this idea, then discuss some areas where divine calls are frequently encountered: major events of life, the Word of God, and the desires that the Spirit awakens in our hearts. -Excerpt from our Summer Parish Book selection, Called To Life by Fr. Jacques Philippe

Purchase this book from any bookseller, read it, and join our seminarian Zaid Chabaan for a discussion on Wednesday, July 25, 7:00 – 8:15 pm in the Gathering Room.

What’s in the ‘Z’ Dear friends, I would like to reflect briefly on the greatest tragedy in our world today, which is the loss of God and the rejection of Him. The very prominent atheist philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), was the son of a Christian minister and in his early life had a profound love of God, then rejected that love to avoid all limits to his self-will. Throughout his life, he was searching for meaning and was miserable and lonely to say the least. In a letter he wrote to his sister, his profound loneliness and deep search for meaning is expressed in a telling way with the following words: “A man of spiritual death needs friends, unless he still has God as a friend. But I have neither God nor friends.” As Christians, we ought to rejoice in the fact that our God is a God who has come to save us and who has come to earth to find and rescue us. Much of atheism today is not a denial of God, but rather an aggression of God. In the very famous parable of the Prodigal Son in Lk 15: the prodigal son returns home after having spent all of his father’s inheritance, and his father rejoices in his return, patiently awaiting his arrival with open arms. But, isn’t Christ in some way the image of the prodigal son and the father, for He came into our reality, left His Father’s throne in Heaven, to come to share in our poverty and sinfulness. When we sinned against Him, He waited patiently for our return. As we journey through our daily lives, we encounter those who are in desperate need for Christ and for His love. Let us remember that God came to save the lost, the last, and the least. Each and every one of us, without the love of God and having a personal relationship with Him, are those who are lost, last, and least and without God or friends -- truly lonely and isolated and in need of rescuing. P.S. I would cordially like to invite you all to a book discussion I am leading on July 25 at 7pm in the Gathering Space on the book by Fr. Jacques Philippe that is advertised in the column to the left. You do not have to read the book to attend. Please feel free to invite a friend!

"It is time our elected officials work together to accomplish two goals: ensuring the security of our borders and, at the same, time, treating all people with the respect and dignity to which they are entitled as children of God." – Archbishop

Victory Cards for Victor! Victor Wisniewski, a 3rd grader from the Elementary School, was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Victor has started his cancer treatments which have been a little rough, so we thought we could ask our DC Family to lift his spirits by sending him a Get-Well greeting card. If you would like to make a little boy smile, please fill out a card of well-wishes and drop it off at the Rectory Office or collection basket with Victor’s name on it. We will fill out the address and mail it! If you can put a postage stamp on it, that would be greatly appreciated. God bless your kindness and please pray for Victor’s Victorious Victory over cancer!

Nobody expects you to show up for Sunday Mass in a top hat and tails, but there is such a thing as proper attire for church. Now that summer has come, we are all tempted to “dress down” whenever we can. After all, it’s hot and we are among friends. Well, we are out to do something else - to show respect for God, the Eucharist, and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We know it’s hot, but guess what? The church is air-conditioned! Please always use common sense and good judgment when dressing for Mass, especially in the summer. Attending Mass should not be a casual affair--after all, Reverence for the Lord is the key!

Sr. Rita Clare (Anne) Yoches, T.O.R., made her perpetual profession of vows on June 30 at Father of Mercy Chapel in Toronto, Ohio, at the motherhouse of her community, the Franciscan Sisters, Third Order Regular of Penance of the Sorrowful Mother. Sr. Rita Clare vowed to live chastity, poverty and obedience for the whole of her life. Bishop Jeffrey Monforton, bishop for the Diocese of Steubenville, presided over the Perpetual Profession Ceremony, which occurred within the context of a Mass. During the first part of the ceremony, she wore a white cape over her habit, symbolizing a wedding garment that also serves as a reminder of her Baptism, and a bridal crown of red and white roses. Mother Mary Ann, the Reverend Mother of the community, gave her a ring during the ceremony as a sign that she is a bride of Christ. Sr. Rita Clare grew up in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. She is the daughter of Robert and Mary Yoches, who live in Allen Park and attend St. Frances Cabrini Church. She has an older sister who lives in Michigan and a younger brother who lives in Ohio. She grew up attending Church of the Divine Child in Dearborn, and graduated from Divine Child High School in 1997. She went on to study Sports Medicine at University of Detroit-Mercy with a full-ride scholarship to play Division I basketball all four years. She graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science and certification as an athletic trainer and strength and conditioning coach. For the next academic year, 2001-2002, she interned at the University of Notre Dame as a strength and conditioning coach and played for the South Bend Golden Hawks, a women’s professional football team. In 2002, she became the assistant director at Total Performance Training Center in Wixom, Michigan, where she worked until entering the Franciscan Sisters in 2009. Sr. Rita Clare was a fullback for the Detroit Demolition women’s professional Divine Child High School Friends football team from 2003-2006. Her team won the national championships all four years. During this time, she attended Our Lady of Good Counsel in Plymouth. She returned to the sacrament of confession after living a party lifestyle for a number of years. On a pilgrimage to Assisi, Italy, the birthplace of St. Francis and the Franciscan order, she began to feel a call to religious life. Later, at a prayer service at Franciscan University of Steubenville, she prayed to know whether she should continue pursuing her relationship with her boyfriend, or end it for a more exclusive relationship with the Lord. A group of university students prayed with her and read to her a passage from Isaiah 62: “As a young man marries a virgin, your Builder shall marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices in his bride so shall your God rejoice in you.” But it wasn’t until a similar prayer service a year later that she really felt Jesus ask her to marry him. She wrote, “I dropped down to my knees and the girls praying over me said, ‘The Lord wants you to know that he is yours and he wants to know, will you be his?’ This deep “Yes” came out of me. Immediately I had feelings of joy, thinking the Lord picked me!” Sr. Rita Clare visited four communities, but it was the Franciscan Sisters, T.O.R. that “felt like home.” She entered in 2009 and made her first profession of vows in 2012. Since then, she lived for five years at Heart of Mary House of Prayer and Service in downtown Steubenville, serving the poor through ministries at the diocesan thrift store and emergency food bank, Samaritan House, which she coordinated 2014-2017. She also coordinated LAMP, a bimonthly soup kitchen, from 2013 to 2014. This coming year, she will continue her work as a campus minister at Florida State University in Tallahassee, an assignment she began a year ago.

…WITH THE HELP OF DIVINE CHILD PARISH FOLEY COUNCIL DONATES TO TWO DEARBORN GROUPS Way back on Palm Sunday Weekend, the Foley Knights surrounded the exit doors donning their yellow aprons filled with Tootsie Rolls and canisters waiting for donations. The parishioners of Divine Child stepped up and donated to the Tootsie Roll Campaign that raises money throughout the state to help those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Church of the Divine Child Bishop Foley KofC Council #2660 A CHARITY THAT EVANGELIZES

AN OPEN INVITATION TO JOIN OUR ORDER Stephen Lentz, Membership Director Dominic Raona, Grand Knight Knights of Columbus Office 313-212-1835 or Membership 313-949-5162 Do you hear the Lord calling your name like I did?

The total monies raised are turned in to the State KofC and 10% is taken off the top for the State to use for all they do around the state of Michigan in helping those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The State KofC donates large sums of money to organizations that help the IDD. A few of the organizations are Michigan Special Olympics, St. Francis Camp on the Lake and St. Louis Center in Chelsea. The remaining 90% of the monies raised are returned to the individual councils in the form of a check made out to the approved organization of the council’s choice. We at Bishop Foley like to keep the fund working locally. This year our members chose to donate to the Instructional Support Program at Divine Child High School and the Area 23-Dearborn Chapter of the Special Olympics. Both worthy organizations were pleased to receive the funds to help with the additional expenses needed to help these great kids. Thank you all for your support.

Do you like to work for great cause like this?

If you are not a Knight and would like more information on becoming a Knight, we will soon begin recruiting for our fall Major Degree. Please use this time to explore what the Knights do. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to someone then go to to see for yourself the good works we brother knights do throughout the world. Then call and talk to us at 313-212-1835. I hope to hear from you soon!

Remembering John Cardinal Dearden

“The things of this world, no matter how flashy, will all pass away. What matters is where we spend eternity.” Rich Donnelly, MLB Coach Taken from Fit for Heaven by Trent Beattie

Prayer for the Healing of Loved Ones Gracious God, You gifted Saint Pio with great compassion and concern for the sick and those afflicted with disease. Through His heavenly intercession, hear my prayers for……..(Mention names)…….who are in need of Your healing power. I implore You to send Your holy Angels to watch over them, protect them from harm and keep them safe from all illness and injury. Through the prayers of Padre Pio, relieve their suffering and bring them to a full and complete recovery. Surround them with Your love, and fill them with Your life-giving presence, to restore them to good health. May Your love and goodness be their constant source of comfort and strength, of healing, hope and joy. Amen. Padre Pio Foundation of America©

A memorial prayer service for John Cardinal Dearden will take place on Wednesday, August 1, from 7 to 9 pm at St. Therese of Lisieux Parish. Sponsored by the Cardinal Dearden Legacy Project, it will commemorate the 30th anniversary of his death. The Cardinal served with distinction as Archbishop of Detroit from 1958 to 1980. He attended all sessions of Vatican II and brought to us its teachings and collaborative style. He was elected the first president of the National Bishops’ Conference and hosted the first National Justice Conference in 1976. He died on August 1, 1988. A reception with light refreshments will follow the prayer service. St. Therese of Lisieux is located at 48115 Schoenherr, just north of 21 Mile in Shelby Twp.
