Bishop celebrates Red Mass for lawmakers

by ,
first_imgYesterday was a red-letter day, as members of the University community, particularly, the law school community, celebrated the traditional Red Mass in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Bishop Kevin Rhoades of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend presided over this year’s iteration of the annual Red Mass. He said the Mass is a long-standing Church tradition that invokes the aid of the Holy Spirit for people in law-related vocations. “The Red Mass is a tradition that goes back to the Middle Ages, the 13th century,” Rhoades said. “It is called ‘red’ because the priest or bishop wears red vestments, red being the color of the Holy Spirit. The purpose is asking God’s blessing and guidance on those in the legal profession.” Rhoades said each year, the Red Mass and his homily are dedicated to a specific topic relevant for Catholics in the legal profession and civic office. “Last year I talked about the injustice of the [Health and Human Services] mandate and religious freedom,” he said. “This year, the topic is the meaning of freedom and what a culture of freedom is. True freedom is rooted in moral truth.” The Red Mass is celebrated worldwide each October, Rhoades said. He said he presides over two Red Masses each year, one in Fort Wayne and one in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. This year’s Mass was his fourth at Notre Dame. Red Masses often attract prominent members of the legal profession and politicians, Rhoades said. Me`mbers of the United States Supreme Court attended the Red Mass held in Washington, D.C., this past week, and the governor of Pennsylvania used to attend the Red Masses over which Rhoades presided when he was Bishop of Harrisburg, Pa., from 2004 to 2009. Rhoades said various judges, lawyers and civic officials from the area joined professors, law students and undergraduate students in the Basilica for yesterday’s Red Mass.  His homily focused on current world issues relevant to the topic, as well as the teachings of St. Thomas More, patron saint of lawyers and statesmen, and the “rich teaching of soon-to-be St. John Paul II.” More serves as a powerful example of a faithful lawyer whose dedication to truth serves as an example for Catholics in the legal profession, Rhoades said. More died defending the freedom Rhoades spoke of in his homily. “More’s faithfulness to the truth led to his being beheaded,” Rhoades said. “He was really a martyr of freedom and conscience.” Rhoades said he referenced the writings of Blessed John Paul II in his homily because the late pope had a great deal to say about freedom and truth. “He wrote on this theme quite a bit, and I have reflected often on his teachings,” Rhoades said. “He taught that freedom can lead to a lot of trouble if not rooted in moral truth.” Rhoades said he values the Mass as a chance to meet, advise and pray for the Notre Dame Law community. “[The Red Mass] gives me an opportunity to meet law students and law professors, and to encourage them in living their faith in their profession,” he said. “There are excellent scholars here who help the Church, so it’s good to come here and pray for them.” Notre Dame’s Red Mass has always been sponsored by the Law School, but last year the political science department joined in, and this year the constitutional studies minor has followed suit, Rhoades said.  It’s been a positive development in the last year,” he said. In his homily, Rhoades said he believes the current and future leaders of law and civil service in attendance can work to ensure moral truth is part of a shared notion of freedom in the United States. “You can help to rebuild the moral foundations of a genuine culture of freedom,” he said. “I believe the future of our nation depends on a culture that adheres to the moral truths and values without which our democracy is imperiled.” Contact Christian Myers at [email protected]last_img

College to engage students in business-related workshop series

by ,

first_imgThe Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative at Saint Mary’s will host a six-week series titled “Entre. Lead. Her.,” designed to help students cultivate a personal and professional brand, develop leadership skills and learn innovative strategies towards success. Running from Jan. 25, this program will feature guest speakers and interactive workshops addressing topics such as team building, pitch presentation, the benefits of podcasting, stress reduction, positive social impact and the importance of empathy in the business world. Joan McClendon, the current director of The Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI) said she initially became involved as a community member participating in the organization’s 2010 pilot program. “I came in [to the WEI] and participated in a leadership style session, and it changed my life because it made me feel as a woman that I had purpose and I had meaning,” McClendon said. “We don’t always have these opportunities to meet with other women to explore who we truly are. That session really transformed me, and I am still friends with the women that I’ve connected with through the WEI.” Since her first experience seven years ago with the WEI, McClendon said her exploration of leadership has continued through her time spent as the associate director, and now project director of the WEI. As director, McClendon is responsible for scheduling events, such as the upcoming workshop series, that will help women in the Saint Mary’s and South Bend community navigate leadership roles in their personal and professional lives. “My passion is to bring the community of women into Saint Mary’s College and have them experience the same thing I’ve come to learn: that we are a college of amazing and incredible women,” McClendon said. Though the WEI is open to all Saint Mary’s students and communities outside of the college, McClendon said most of the individuals involved are graduates of SPARK, a Saint Mary’s program providing that assists women who earn low wages in starting their own businesses. “Entre. Lead. Her.” will offer a chance for graduates and others to scale up their businesses and continue building a brand, McClendon said. “Part of the series will work on creating and refining a pitch, a skill that I think all the women at Saint Mary’s College could benefit from learning,” McClendon said. “These sessions are not your typical business classes, but they will provide you with the things that are going to give you an edge in your personal life and in your business.”In order to make the upcoming series more accessible, McClendon said the WEI has made admission free for students and continues to offer availability to the general public. She said attendance will be capped at 40 to keep sessions personal and thorough. McClendon said she hopes each participant will walk away from this experience with a better understanding of her leadership style and the process of creating a business, for they will have had the opportunity to grow personally.“That’s why we start these sessions by sharing Sr. Madeleva Wolff’s words on discovery,” McClendon said. “‘We promise you discovery: the discovery of yourselves, the discovery of the universe, and your place in it.’”Tags: discovery, Entre.

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson out for six months with knee injury

by ,

first_img “Callum is the type of character who won’t be fazed by such a set-back, and I am sure he will turn this experience into a positive in the long run. “As I have said many times before though, this kind of set-back offers others the opportunity to step up to the plate, show everybody what they can do and make a real impact at this level.” The loss of Wilson is the latest significant injury suffered by a Bournemouth player. It is possible the forward, who had scored five goals his previous six appearances before facing Stoke, will not return this season. Club-record signing Tyrone Mings, who was recruited for £8million over the summer, will miss the remainder of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, and with that same injury winger Max Gradel, a £7million summer signing, will also miss the next six months. Scans showed the severity of the promising forward’s injury, suffered in the recent 2-1 defeat at Stoke, and he will be operated on next week before beginning his rehabilitation. “It’s very disappointing for Callum, after what has been an exceptional start to the season, but I am sure he will come back fitter and stronger,” manager Eddie Howe told Bournemouth’s official club website. Press Associationcenter_img Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson will be unavailable for at least the next six months after he was revealed to have suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.last_img read more
