St. Joseph Oktoberfest on Sunday, September 23, 2018, was an exciting and joyful cultural festival at St. Joseph Oratory in Detroit.  Inside the church was a Solemn High Orchestral Mass at 11:00 am, two church tours, a Classical Concert, and Vespers.  The festivities outside in beautiful weather ran from 12:30 pm to 8:30 pm.  Entertainment under the big tent included the Bavarian band Siasswasser Tanzlmusi, Bavarian dancers G.T.E.V. Edelweiss Detroit, the second annual Steinholding Contest and presentation of the Steinly Cup by Canon Michael Stein to the winners of the Women's and Men's Divisions, Notre Dame Preparatory Jazz Band, and Billy & Fast Forward Entertainment.  Visitors also enjoyed a full German dinner and grill station, Bavarian beer and a local Oktoberfest beer, fowling and corn hole, children's activities and face painting, Silent Auction, Raffle, Attic Treasures, German clothing, parish gifts including etched steeple slate, and local vendors.  It was wonderful to share this time of prayer and cultural recreation with so many people of all ages, including many first-time visitors, neighbors, long-time supporters, and seminarians, priests, and religious.  St. Joseph Oratory is grateful to all the sponsors and volunteers who made the Oktoberfest possible and contributed to the Historic Renewal of the Oratory campus.  Deo gratias!

Ten years ago, the Institute of Christ the King received the canonical status of Pontifical Right by the decree entitled "Saeculorum Rex" from Benedict XVI.  Ten years later, Almight God has blessed the Institute with many new canons.  Deo gratis!

Each year, during the last week of August, all of the canons of the Institute are invited back to our Motherhouse in Gricigliano, where they studied as seminarians, by the Prior General for a week-long “family reunion” known as the General Chapter.  The canons are able to visit with their confreres from all over the world, some of whom they have not seen for over a year.  They are able to grow more closely as a family, dining together, learning together, and of course, praying together through the beauty of the Sacred Liturgy.  Refreshed by a week of fraternal charity, the priests of the Institute are then sent back out into the world, ready for another year of service to our Holy Mother Church for the salvation of souls.  Deo gratias!

Every other year, the Bishop of Oakland graciously comes to confirm the candidates prepared by the Institute for this very important Sacrament of Holy Mother Church.  It is always a great occasion to foster the unity of the apostolates on the West Coast.  The faithful of the Institute’s Oratory of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in San Jose, California have the opportunity to join those of Saint Margaret Mary in Oakland.  This year, 43 well-prepared candidates for Confirmation were presented to his Excellency, Bishop Michael Barber, who, after administering the Sacrament of Confirmation, would assist pontifically at the throne during the Solemn High Mass that would follow.  

Canon Ueda , rector of the oratory, celebrated the Solemn Mass.  Canon Avis kindly came from Tucson, Arizona to be the Master of Ceremonies, bringing his expertise for the perfection of the Divine Liturgy.  Canon Meney assisted as Deacon, and clerical oblate, Abbé Kevin Kerscher, served as Subdeacon for the Solemn High Mass.    

 A special mention to the wonderful work of the new flower team!  The altar was beautifully adorned for the external solemnity of the Assumption of Our Lady.  Additionally, a special thanks is due to Jay Balza for his diligence in capturing the life of the Liturgy on camera for us all to see.

On August 2, a fine Thursday morning in St. Louis, the pealing church bells at 10:00 am signaled the beginning of the Rite of Ordination at St. Francis de Sales Oratory. His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Cardinal Patronus of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, was about to ordain four more priests for Holy Mother Church, and one subdeacon. All Americans, the ordinandi for the priesthood were Deacon Peter Heidenreich, Deacon Benjamin Norman, Deacon Matthew Weaver, and Deacon Luke Zignego. Abbé Alex Barga, a clerical oblate of the Institute, would also be ordained a subdeacon by His Eminence on this occasion.

Fittingly, this being the first Thursday of the month, the Mass celebrated would be the votive Mass of Jesus Christ Eternal High Priest. Later in his homily, the Cardinal would refer passionately to Our Lord as Sovereign Priest, inviting the ordinandi to offer the Holy Sacrifice with him in this Ordination Mass.

The ceremony began with a majestic entrance into the beautiful, 110-year-old church of St. Francis de Sales Oratory. As the church’s organ voiced the glorious concertos of Vivaldi and Johann Sebastian Bach, the ordinandi for the priesthood and for the subdiaconate processed into the church, each appropriately vested for his order, and carrying a lit candle in his right hand. The solemnity of the occasion was emphasized by the large number of clergy in attendance, including seminarians, priests, canons, superiors of the Institute, monsignors, and two Archbishops, His Excellency Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco and His Excellency Timothy P. Broglio of the US Military Services. The music crescendoed at the entrance of His Eminence, Cardinal Burke, whose blessing of the faithful swelled the hearts of all in the packed church as he processed solemnly down the nave.   

Graces emanated, flowed, filled, and lifted up the same hearts and minds in the hours that followed. The unity, catholicity, and lineage through the apostles to Jesus Christ, the Eternal High Priest, was sweetly yet strongly perceptible in the Church’s Sacred Liturgy; the four hours passed as if only one had.

After Mass, the Cardinal was the first to receive the First Blessings from the newly ordained priests, kissing the same hands he had anointed with Sacred Oil when he bestowed upon them the power to offer Sacrifice to God and to celebrate Mass for the living and the dead.

The faithful waited in long lines for their priestly blessings by the new canons. The new bond between the new priest and the flock was beautiful to witness as the each faithful reciprocated by taking a prayer card from each new priest, assenting to remember him in prayer.

On Friday morning, graces continued to pour forth from the altar as each new canon celebrated Holy Mass for the first time, and after the four First Masses had been celebrated, a solemn Te Deum was sung in thanksgiving to Almighty God for His magnanimous Providence.

The members of the Institute extend their heart-felt gratitude to Cardinal Burke for his continued paternal affection and indefatigable generosity in the service of Holy Mother Church, providing her with four new priests for eternity.  Additionally, they wish to express their most sincere thanks to His Excellency, Robert J. Carlson for his permission and blessing to have this glorious ceremony in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.

Surgite et nolite timere! Arise and fear not!

(From the Gospel for the Feast of the Transfiguration)

About sixty young adults came together this year for the eighth annual Sursum Corda weekend, August 10-13, on the magnificent campus of St Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, IL.  

Canon Commins, and Canon Estrada provided spiritual nourishment through daily Mass, confession, and spiritual conferences on such topics as the Liturgy, Holy Scripture, and prayer, with a particular emphasis this year on the different states in life.  Each evening also witnessed the beautiful Office of Compline, during which the retreatants joined enthusiastically with the Canons in singing the Latin psalmody of Holy Mother Church. And for the first time this year, Sunday Solemn Vespers with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

Other highlights of the weekend included theology on tap, in which the young men and women proposed many difficult and interesting questions to the Canons, a rosary walk through the woods to the national shrine of St Maximilian Kolbe, followed by an hour of Adoration.  On the final evening of the retreat, the participants shared their many talents through music, skits, and folk dancing.

Each year, the national Sursum Corda retreat sees the formation, or the renewal, of friendships founded on our shared Catholic faith. 

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear, as young as your hope, as old as your despair. (Samuel Ullman)

This was my first time attending Sursum Corda, and it was such a breath of fresh air!  I can’t express how grateful I am for the Canons, their spiritual talks as well as the wonderful like-minded Catholics there! This retreat has really rekindled my Faith and prayer life, with daily Mass, daily Compline, and on the last night a special treat of vespers and benediction! I felt myself come alive again. 

With laughter at every turn; some of my favorite memories would be the rosary walk through the woods, ending at St.  Maximilian Kolbe shrine. Dancing under the stars, enjoying everyone’s talent at the talent show, playing games especially reversed Charades and theology on tap!

Don’t hesitate to take a leap of faith and enjoy this breath of fresh air where you make wonderful memories, met amazing people, laugh and grown deeper in your Faith! Maria Garcia- Chicago

"This year's retreat was fantastic as always, with terrific spiritual conferences by the Canons, and daily Mass, Compline, Vespers and good Catholic camaraderie. Taking place on the beautiful grounds of St. Mary of the Lake University, this retreat immerses young Catholics for four days in spiritual direction, nourishes the soul by providing the sacraments every day, and offers an opportunity for young, like-minded Catholics to create good, holy friendships. I hope that more Catholics will come in years to follow and take the opportunity to grow spiritually and make new acquaintances." Edward Shikles- Kansas City

From July 23-28, 2018, about 140 girls and a good number of their mothers attended the annual girls summer camp in Wausau, Wisconsin, under the guidance of the Institute canons, sisters, oblates, and seminarians. This year, two Sisters Adorers were able to participate in the camp and to spend time with the girls.

 Girls camp is such a unique experience. I have been participating in the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest girls’ camp for eight years, and each year has been special in so many ways. Every year there are innumerable friendships made and rekindled, it is truly incredible! I love the two-fold aspect of camp: bonding with your teammates doing all the fun activities and also having the opportunity to grow spiritually throughout the week with the help of daily Mass, the sacraments, and spiritual instruction given by the wonderful priests and, finally, the sisters! I look forward to being a counselor at camp and would not hesitate to encourage girls of any age to attend the camp. May God reward those who generously dedicate so much time and effort to this important experience in the lives of so many young ladies!

-JoAnna Kanzenbach, Camper

 

 Girls camp was a great experience. Firstly, the Faith was the center of all we did, so every day began with Mass and ended with night prayers around the fire. The camaraderie and friendships grew continuously from the first day of camp to the last, and even though a healthy competitiveness and intensity permeated the games and competitions, all the girls showed incredible team spirit for their own teams and others. It was wonderful to witness and be a part of, and I hope it continues to grow!                 

 Rita Lampe, Counselor

From July 16-20, 2018, about 125 boys and a good number of their fathers attended the annual boys summer camp in Wausau, Wisconsin, under the guidance of the Institute canons and seminarians.

One of the most edifying experiences of the entire year is the Institute’s Boys Camp held in Wausau Wisconsin (July 16-20, 2018). Boys Camp strengthens faith and physique as the canons and abbés challenge you to grow both physically and spiritually. With Mass and the Rosary every day along with lectures given by clerics, Boys Camp is brimming with spiritual wealth. The theme this year was about the English martyrs, we learned about the sacrifices they made for the greater glory of God. A camp oriented towards boys would not be complete without physical activities, which this camp has in abundance. With a full set of “Olympic” games, swimming, archery, horseback riding and more, you are dog-tired by the end of each day. Boys Camp also helps the campers develop character. It gives them the opportunity to help the younger campers in their team and learn respect for the superiors. I would highly recommend this camp for any boy aged 10-17 because it’s spiritually beneficial, builds character, and is a lot of fun.

I have had the privilege of attending the Institute camps for nine years and have enjoyed the spirituality, the sports, and the Catholic friendships this camp provides.  First of all, the Canons say Mass each morning, listen to confessions, give jam-packed spiritual talks as well as participate in various activities, which adds to the excitement of the camp.  The Dads are very helpful in assisting with the great meals as well as making sure the games and other activities go along smoothly.  Campers enjoy the sports, and fun activities planned for them such as flag raising, football, baseball, horseback riding, archery, woodworking, flag wars, and many other thrilling events.  Following the evening Rosary procession, we had nightly camp fires where there are great skits, games, and camp fire songs for all to enjoy as well as time to make new and old acquaintances.  This camp is a great chance for young boys to practice virtue, make new friends, and have a great camping experience.

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.
