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.”

Regarding Jude Ellinghausen

Jude Ellinghausen, 83, was permanently removed from priestly ministry over a decade ago and assigned a life of prayer and penance. Allegations of the sexual abuse of minors by Ellinghausen were brought to the Archdiocese of Detroit in 2002 and deemed credible by the Archdiocesan Review Board. At that time, he was placed on an administrative leave and restricted from all public ministry, from wearing clerical attire, and from presenting himself as a priest. In 2005, the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith formalized those determinations, permanently restricting Ellinghausen from all public priestly ministry. Since that time, additional allegations of the sexual abuse of minors were brought forward to the Detroit archdiocese and found to be credible. Similar to the former cases, the allegations involved the earlier years of Ellinghausen's ministry. These more recent allegations warranted additional action, prompting the Archdiocese to pursue Ellinghausen's dismissal from the clerical state (laicization). In the process of pursuing a canonical (Church law) process for this determination, Ellinghausen voluntarily petitioned the Vatican (the Holy See) for laicization. It was granted and took effect June 24, 2016. Jude Ellinghausen is no longer considered a priest.

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.

World Youth Day 2016: Source of Hope

We are passing through a particularly dark moment in the world’s history. But in the wizened faces of the members of Karol Wojtyła’s Środowisko, in the enraptured cries of 25,000 young people in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, in the serene witness of Poland’s martyrs, and in the mercy, within mercy, within mercy proclaimed by Faustina, I found much ground for hope.
