M"# %&' C% ('"# C())* " ,40501 Hayes Road · Sterling Heights, Michigan 48313MISSION STATEMENT: St. Michael Catholic Community strives to be a welcoming parish wherepeople come together to worship, learn and grow in faith. Through our actions, we demonstrate ourbeliefs in fellowship, service and generous tithing of time, talent and treasure while empoweringpeople to take a more active role in the mission of the church. We care for one another and receivecomfort and support in our own times of need. All are encouraged to participate in the journey tolive by Christ’s example and build the kingdom of God by sharing His word with those we meet.From Fr. Mike.St. Augustine was a Fourth Centurybishop and a teacher in the ways of faith.What this high-profile Christian is bestnoted for is Confessions, one of the firstin a genre of Christian literature thatdescribes how one came to the faith. Ifyou wish to read about if fully, you cancheck out The Confessions of St.Augustine. It’s a classic.Before he climbed to the rank of priestand Bishop of the African city of Hippo(which would be located in Algeria),Augustine was a man about town andthe subject of his mother’s worry andprayers before his conversion. The storyof his relationship to her and how heeventually came to the faith throughcircumlocution reaffirms that God doesanswer prayers, but in ways that oftensurprises us.Augustine’s mother, (St.) Monica wasmarried to a gent named Patricius whowas a Roman citizen, a pagan(worshipping the Pantheon of Romangods including the emperor), and agovernment official in the city ofThagaste (modern day Africa) where theyraised their children. Patricius had aviolent temper and a nasty habit ofdrinking. Monica, however, was alwayspatient and kind with him whichironically annoyed him—go figure! Shepersevered and eventually gainedPatricius’ respect, but I cannot image itwas easy or always certain how it wouldcome out in the end.They had three children together,Augustine, Navigius, and Perpetua, butthe children were not baptized in themother’s Christian faith because Patriciuswouldn’t hear of it. She eventuallybecame very concerned about Augustinewho was deathly ill as a child. Augustinefortunately recovered from his illnessmuch to Monica’s relief (and she believedas a direct answer to her prayers), and asany mother of a sick child will testify, shebecame vigilant about his health andwellbeing throughout the remaining yearsof his young life. Augustine eventuallywent off to school to study and despitehis mother’s concerns for his health andsoul, he seemed to enjoy life in the dormsand the freedom to do what he wanted.When Patricius died, Augustine was only(Con nued on page 2)

17 years old, and his dad’s death seemedto affect him quite a bit. Augustine wentoff to join a religion called Manicheanismwhich was very popular at the time andhad a lot of parallels to Christianity, butdifferent from it in a number ofsignificant ways. Manicheanism, forinstance, was dark, hopeless, and leftone with the impression that the ongoingstruggle between good and evil wascontinuing and despite Jesus’incarnation, death and resurrection, andthe all-powerful God who gave him tous, we might lose anyway.F . M"# C%&'"&( ) * % ,-/ 1Needless to say, Monica wasunimpressed with Augustine’s new-foundreligion and distanced herself from himinitially, but taking her problem toprayer, she reconciled with him againand followed him first to Rome and thento Milan where they met the famousbishop and teacher of the faith, St.Ambrose. It was through Ambrose’serudition and love of learning that heimpressed the young Augustine andeventually convinced him to be baptizedinto the Christian Faith. Shortlythereafter, Augustine pursued studies forthe priesthood and eventually became ateacher of the faith in his own right, andwas made Bishop of Hippo where heministered to his flock until his death in430 AD. He dedicated his bookConfessions to his mother’s memory aswell as the faith that served him.Augustine was the scribe in the familyand we, unfortunately, don’t have awhole lot of quotes from Monica herself.She is, however, known as the patronsaint of mothers. What Augustine doesquote from her gives us a sense ofhopefulness. She said: “Nothing is farfrom God.” My read of this is thatnothing escapes God’s notice: no tear, nothought, no prayer, no kind action nomatter how small. Keep the faith.Fr. Mike un 1stPilgrimag F .

I’d like to thank you allfor the prayers andposi0ve thoughts yousent my way while Iwas at the Flaum EyeIns0tute at theUniversity of Rochester in Rochester, New York. Thetes0ng was intense and 0ring, the days were long, andthe breaks were short, but it went be:er than anyoneexpected, including me. We actually finished up thetes0ng a day early so I was able to head home onThursday instead of Friday a “God send” as theRochester area got up to 12 inches of snow on Friday.I was home late Thursday. The clinicians and directorof the clinic indicated very strongly to me that theyfelt very confident that they will be able to help meregain some of the eyesight I’ve lost due to my stroke.In addi0on, and this was very important for me tohear, they said that the tes0ng I did and interpre0ngthe results will not only help me improve my eyesight,but will also help others in the same boat as I am asthey are always reviewing and revising the programbased on the tes0ng outcomes of the par0cipants. Iam grateful to God that I found this program and thata er a long ve ng process, they accepted me into theprogram. I had given up hope of ever improving myeyesight, went down many roads, sent out mayle:ers/emails and made many phone calls and was letdown 0me and 0me again with the words “so sorry,but we can’t help you, no one recovers eyesight lostdue to a stroke.” I hope to prove them wrong. BeforeI le , the Eye Ins0tute downloaded a set or exerciseson my lap top that are designed to regenerate eyecells that weren’t damaged 100%, train my exis0nggood eye cells to do more, and push/coax my braininto developing a new path to my eyes around thedamaged part of my brain that will allow be:ereyesight. The exercises are intense, but I’m in 100%and I once again ask for your con0nued prayers andposi0ve thoughts. They es0mate I should seesignificant progress in about 6 months. I then go backto the Eye Ins0tute for addi0onal tes0ng to determinehow much progress my eyes and brain have made.I was deeply saddened and upset at the news thatRussia invaded the Ukraine. I was certain. as weremany, that Pu0n would not invade and that adiploma0c solu0on could and would be found. Beingborn in Germany, I have read a lot of books byGerman, Bri0sh, French, and American historians/authors on what preceded WWI and WWII.Unfortunately, it seems like history may be repea0ngitself. I’m not saying we are on the threshold ofWWIII, but the powder keg seems to have a short fuseand now we have to add the threat of nuclearweapons into the mix. We all need to con0nueprayers for a nego0ated end to this tragedy. As of thiswri0ng, the news reported that both sides had agreedto meet; I sincerely hope the talks are substan0ve andnot a ploy by either side to buy 0me. I rememberwhen nego0a0ons started to end the Viet-Nam war,the biggest s0cking point was the shape of thenego0a0ng table.So Lent started this past Wednesday with AshWednesday, the first one we’ve been able tocelebrate with some semblance of normalcy. It’s niceto see more and more of you coming back to churchand we are toying with the idea of adding morechairs, but s0ll realizing that Covid is s0ll with us. Wewon’t crowd our sanctuary and we will ensure that wekeep the 6 feet between the rows and 10 feet acrossthe aisle. We take extremely seriously ourcommitment to keep you all as safe as possible, and,even though I hate to admit it, the pandemic is s0llwith us, is s0ll real, and is s0ll pu ng people in thehospital and in some cases, killing them. I reallythought we were pre:y much over it a while back, Iwas wrong.I hope that many of you will a:end our LentenBible Study (hosted by yours truly) and ourCommunion Services, both star0ng on Thursday,March 10th up to Holy Week. (See page 7 for theschedule.) The Bible Study will be in the Social Halland the Communion Services will be in the Church.The Bible Study will focus on the Old Testament.What do you know about the Old Testament? Formany Catholics, it’s almost treated like science fic0onand there seems to be very li:le understanding ofit .where it came from, how it predicts Jesus and theNew Testament, and how very important it is to havesome understanding of it. In our first session, we’llspend the first part of the hour talking about how ourpresent day Bible was developed, how the books ofthe Old and New Testament were chosen and howmany versions of the Bible were considered beforethere was agreement on our present form. We’llspend the rest of the hour and most of the secondsession discussing Genesis/Exodus. I will havehandouts for you to follow along. I’m excited to beable to provide this study and have thought about itfor a couple of years but the pandemic pushed my0me line back.God Bless,Deacon Franz6

Women’s History MonthPROVIDING HEALING AND PROMOTING HEALTHSubmitted by Amy Mittelstaedt, MPTPhysical Therapy is a career field that embodies this theme to its core; it should be the theme of theprofession. The modern day field of physical therapy was primarily led by women who were assigned to agroup called Reconstruction Aides. Reconstruction Aides were citizens who worked to assist in the physicalrehabilitation of those injured in war. One woman in particular is considered the founding mother andpioneer of physical therapy as we know it today, her name was Mary McMillian. On February 23, 1918, MaryMcMillian, the first physical therapist in this country, was assigned to the Reconstruction Aide Program bythe surgeon general. Mary was an American by birth, but was educated in England and worked there with anorthopedic surgeon at a military base hospital. This made her ideally suited to be assigned to be aReconstruction Aide, and in March, 1921, she became the head of the Reconstruction Aides after returning tothe States. She transitioned into teaching and served as the Director of Reed College which was responsiblefor educating future Rehabilitation Aides. Mary went on to write a book called Massage and Therapeutic Exercisewhich was the first book in the United States published by a Physical Therapist. Later she was appointed theSuperintendent of the Reconstruction Aides in Physiotherapy, Medical Department at Large, Office of theSurgeon General. Ultimately after leaving this post, Mary joined an orthopedic surgeon and developed thegraduate programs for physical therapists offered through the Harvard Graduate Medical School. She laterbecame the first president of the APTA (American Physical Therapy Association).Our Parish Health Ministry is looking for new members.If you are interested, please contact us through the Parish Office.In part with Women’s History Month, theParish Health Ministry members havecontacted women’s shelters and safe havensand are asking for your dona ons of femininehygiene products for these facili es.
