AOD/Archdiocese of Detroit

In response to violence across country, Archdiocese on Sept. 9 will observe Day of Prayer for Peace in Our Communities

Following a summer of civil unrest and acts of violence in minority communities and against law enforcement officers in many parts of the nation, the Archdiocese of Detroit is observing a Day of Prayer for Peace in Our Communities. An outdoor prayer vigil will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Augustine and St. Monica Church, 5141 Seminole Street in Detroit. The prayer vigil will be led by St. Augustine and St. Monica pastor Monsignor Daniel Trapp. It will is part of a series of prayer events called “Take Back the Night,” which already have taken place throughout the city in attempts to bring communities together peacefully under fellowship in Christ.

Catholics in 220 parishes across the six counties in southeast Michigan will be encouraged through their parishes to attend the prayer vigil, or to pray for peace in their own parish communities and homes. The Day of Prayer for Peace in Our Communities is an initiative led by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Details and resources are available here.

Catholic Archbishop touched by condolences from local Imams, exchanges with them words of solidarity, common ground

DETROIT — Detroit Archbishop Allen Vigneron was moved this week to have received correspondences from local Imams on behalf of Michigan Muslims, expressing condolences for the death of Catholic priest Father Jacques Hamel, who was killed by terrorists in Normandy, France, on July 26.

“We are greatly saddened and troubled to hear of his tragic death and wish to express our sadness that so humble a servant of God was called to his Lord in such a cruel and violent manner,” wrote Imam Steve Mustapha Elturk, co-chair of the Imams Council, in a letter sent to Archbishop Vigneron on behalf of the Michigan Muslim Community Council (MMCC). “We condemn in the strongest terms such a barbaric act. Islam calls for the protection of Churches and priests, not their murder and destruction of houses of worship…. Father Hamel devoted his entire life to serve the people. We pray that his devoted life in this world will be rewarded in the next with peace and joy.”

Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, a Tale of Grace

Roma Downey and Mark Burnett have produced a new instantiation of the epic film, “Ben-Hur”. What principally differentiates it from the 1959 Charlton Heston version is its greater stress on the strange power of Christ to bring about forgiveness—an emphasis much needed today.
