The academic year at the Institute’s international Seminary of St. Philip Neri culminated in the grace-filled week of Ordinations from July 2-7, 2018. The liturgies were celebrated daily in Florence, Italy, at the beautiful Church of Saints Michael and Cajetan, which was confided several years ago to the care of the Institute’s clergy by the Cardinal Archbishop of Florence.

On Monday, July 2, nineteen men from nine various countries received the cassock, while the future deacons made the profession of faith, the oath to uphold the traditions and teachings of the Church, as well as the pledge to observe the constitutions of the Institute as incardinated members. Solemn High Mass for the Feast of the Visitation was then celebrated by the Prior General, Monsignor Gilles Wach.  

Newly-clothed in their cassocks, the nineteen seminarians received the clerical tonsure the next day during Pontifical Mass which was offered by His Lordship, the Most Reverend Mark Davies, Bishop of Shrewsbury in the United Kingdom. Bishop Davies also administered the Minor Orders of Porter, Lector, Exorcist, and Acolyte, to over thirty seminarians, upon their completion of the second, third, and four years of their formation.

On the following day, July 4, His Grace, the Most Reverend Salvatore J. Cordileone, Archbishop of San Francisco, ordained fourteen subdeacons and five deacons. Among the newly ordained deacons are three Americans, Deacon Ryan Post (New York), Deacon Ross Bourgeois (Louisiana), Deacon Edward Turner (Massachusetts).

Thursday, July 5, being the first Thursday of the month, the votive Mass of Jesus Christ Eternal High Priest was celebrated by His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Cardinal Patronus of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, for the ordination of four new priests: Canon Pablo Piaggio Kokot (Argentina), Canon Paul d’Aubigny (France), Canon Fernando de Almeida (Brazil), and Canon Baudouin Chaptal (France).

That same evening, Cardinal Burke offered Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament with Te Deum in the seminary chapel of Gricigliano. Archbishop Cordileone and Bishop Davies assisted in choro at this solemn Liturgy, which was followed by a festive dinner and superb fireworks display for the hundreds of family, friends and supporters who attended. The next day, the First Friday of the month, each of the newly ordained priests offered his first Mass in honor of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Seminary Chapel of the Immaculate Conception.

On August 2, 2018, four American deacons will be ordained to the holy priesthood by Cardinal Burke at St. Francis de Sales Oratory in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Institute expresses heartfelt gratitude for all of the prayers and support which thousands of people have offered from across the world for these newly ordained clergy at the service of Holy Mother Church for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.

Processions in the Liturgy truly embody the public worship of God. The Church through Her processions invite Her children to leave the four walls of the sacred edifice in order to go out into the streets to show to all the mysteries of our Faith.

Dom Gueranger writes in his Liturgical Year: “Not satisfied today with elevating the Bread of Life immediately after the Consecration, She will carry It beyond the precincts of Her churches, amidst clouds of incense, and on paths strewn with flowers; and Her children, on bended knee, will adore, under heaven's vaulted canopy, Him Who is their King and their God.”

On the Feast of Corpus Christi, the priest carries the Sacred Host, leading his flock. This was prefigured in the Old Testament when the Levites carried the Ark of the Covenant leading the Israelites on their journey in the desert. The Israelites in the Old Testament prefigured the faithful of the Church. More than mere manna which was contained in the Ark, the Bread that we have is the Body of our Savior who offers us the promise of entering the New Jerusalem, heaven.

Across the United States, the body of believers pour out from the church buildings into the streets to confess their Faith as they walk behind the Sacred Host to manifest their faith in Him.

St. Thomas, secondary patron of the Institute, sums up this sentiment of Faith in the Eucharistic Lord:

 

O salutaris hostia,
quae caeli pandis ostium,
bella premunt hostilia;
da robur, fer auxilium.

O saving Victim, opening wide
the gate of heaven to all below:
our foes press on from every side;
Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow.

The advice of Saint Francis de Sales concerning a yearly retreat is well known: “There is no clock, however good, but must be continually wound up; and moreover, during the course of each year it will need taking to pieces, to cleanse away the rust which clogs it, to straighten bent works, and renew such as are worn. Even so, anyone who really cares for his heart's devotion will wind it up to God night and morning, and examine into its condition, correcting and improving it; and at least once a year he will take the works to pieces and examine them carefully.” This advice, which is wise and necessary for devout laymen, is even more important for priests. Thus, the importance of the annual priestly retreat, an obligation of canon law, which the priests of the Institute are very happy to fulfil every year.

This year the annual retreat for the canons of the American province of the Institute was held once again at Saint Francis de Sales Oratory in mid-June. The abundance of available altars in the magnificent church as well as the lodgings in the spacious adjacent convent building make the Oratory an ideal setting for the annual retreat. Our prior general, Monsignor Gilles Wach, led the retreat for the priests of the province during his annual visit to our American apostolates.

Since the Christian life is essentially the imitation of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and since the priest by his ordination is ontologically an alter Christus, “another Christ,” the instructions this year focused on the different aspects of the mystery of Jesus Christ, the God-man. Since a priest is the mediator between God and man, Jesus Christ, by reason of His Incarnation which joins the divine and human natures in one person, is by his very being the priest par excellence. The retreat instructions focused especially on the meekness and the prayer of Our Lord.

The retreat began with the invocation of the Holy Ghost during a Eucharistic holy hour; during the week, the canons were able to balance private prayer with the communal singing of the Divine Office, not to mention finding time for rest – an essential part of a good retreat from a busy assignment! The week of liturgical prayer culminated with a solemn votive Mass in honor of Jesus Christ Eternal High Priest. After Mass, the “grand silence” of the retreat was over, and the priests were happy to be able to socialize with many of the faithful of the Saint Louis apostolate. The evening concluded with a festive fraternal banquet, which enabled the canons to catch up with their confreres from across the country.

Annual Pilgrimage to The Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary Help of Christians at Holy Hill

Hubertus, Wisconsin -  June 23, 2018

 

Pilgrims from across the Midwest attended the annual Marian pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Mary Help of Christians at Holy Hill on June 23, 2018.   Members of the Oratories of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest in Milwaukee, Green Bay, Wausau, Chicago and Rockford – and for the first time, Detroit -- participated in the pilgrimage.

The day began with an outdoor Rosary procession through the beautiful Wisconsin woodlands and outdoor Stations of the Cross, finally ending at the doorway of the Church.   A Solemn High Mass followed in the Basilica Church.  Canon Jayr of Milwaukee offered the Mass, assisted by Canon Estrada of Chicago, and Canon Boucheron of Green Bay as well as dozens of servers from the various Oratories.  Canon Huberfeld, and Canon Matheus of Wausau, Canon Commins of Chicago, and Canon Coggeshall of Rockford also participated, along with Abbe George of Milwaukee, Abbe Raymond of Chicago, Abbe Michael of Rockford and several candidates. 

After the Mass, pilgrims shared a picnic in the beautiful weather on the grounds of the Basilica, enjoying contact with friends old and new. Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament in the St. Therese Chapel in the lower level of the Basilica church followed the picnic and closed the day.

Extraordinarily, pilgrims were also able, during the day, to visit the special exhibition, “St. Therese: Burning with Love” which is in the church’s lower-level Chapel through July.  This exhibit, honoring in a special way one of the Institute’s special patrons, includes first-class relics of St. Therese available for veneration.

It was a warm welcome back to St. Mary's Oratory for His Excellency, William P. Callahan, Bishop of La Crosse. The Institute of Christ the King has served in the diocese of La Crosse for nearly twenty years, and we have been grateful for Bishop Callahan's fatherly care since his arrival in 2010. On May 18, His Excellency conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation on some 40 children and adults. He concluded the ceremony with Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. He then joined the faithful down in the church hall, where he was presented with a Celtic cross of Irish crystal.

Our Provincial Canon Matthew Talarico and Abbe Alex Barga joined the Canons Huberfeld and Matheus for this joyous event. May God bless and keep Bishop Callahan. We look forward to his next visit.

The Society of the Sacred Heart held its annual retreat at University of St. Mary of the Lake Conference Center in Mundelein, Illinois, on June 8-10, 2018. 

Pilgrim members of the Society from across the United States met for enriching spiritual conferences presented by Very Rev. Msgr. Giles Wach, Prior General of the Institute and Canon Aaron Huberfeld, Chaplain of the Society.  Canon Matthew Talarico, Provincial of the United States, assisted Msgr. Wach with translations. Miss Katherine Weir, founding member of the Society, gave an enlightening talk on the history of the Society.  Dr. James Sutherland, National Governor of the Society also gave an edifying presentation on the English martyrs.  Three members of the Sisters Adorers of the Royal Heart joined the retreatants, offering a presentation on their lives within the Institute and enhancing the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with their beautiful chant.  Abbe Raymond Schmidt assisted the Canons throughout the weekend.

Society members also participated in Solemn Mass for the Feast of the Sacred Heart on Friday, Solemn Votive Mass of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Saturday, and Solemn High Mass for the Third Sunday after Pentecost in the beautiful seminary chapel, as well as a Holy Hour of Adoration, Confessions, and Holy Rosary. 

Thirteen new members received the Cross of St. Francis de Sales from Msgr. Wach in a solemn Saturday evening ceremony, which included the renewal of Society membership commitment by all the members.

Society members enjoyed much camaraderie with each other throughout the weekend, renewing friendships and welcoming new members, as well as encouraging each other spiritually.  It was a rare and special pleasure to spend the retreat weekend with members of all four branches of the Institute family: Canons, Oblates, Sisters and lay Society members.

 The next Society of the Sacred Heart annual retreat will be held June 7-9, 2019 in Mundelein, Illinois.
