    As the great Msgr. Schuler used to say when I was returning home, “I wish and wish and wish again that I was back in Michigan.”

    He had relatives that lived in southern Michigan, near Kalamazoo, but not, as he could recall, related to the memorable restauranteur Win Schuler

    Hello, Father Z! Welcome to my neck of the woods – I live in Michigan, about an hour from where you will be. I wish I could be there with you today. Prayers for a safe journey.

    O Almighty and merciful God, who hast commissioned Thy angels to guide and protect us, command them to be our assiduous companions from our setting out until our return; to clothe us with their invisible protection; to keep from us all danger of collision, of fire, of explosion, of fall and bruises, and finally, having preserved us from all evil, and especially from sin, to guide us to our heavenly home. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

    Now. If you were coming to Ohio, THAT would be a most auspicious development! Still, it’s nice to know you’re sort of close! :-)

    Enjoy your trip!

    Saying prayers for a safe journey, Fr. Z! Only been to Michigan once, but really liked it there.

  5. Dan Hunter says:

    May your holy angel protect you always.

  6. Katherine Therese says:

    Welcome to Michigan, Father! I hope you have a nice stay despite the weather! :)

    Have a good time in Michigan. I don’t know what you’ll be doing. I’m from Ann Arbor, but I’m in NJ right now then I’m going back (through Penn) to Steubenvilly OH tomorrow. I guess there’s no chance of me running into you. How sad.

  8. Diane says:

    C’mon over to Assumption Grotto – a couple hours away if you can squeeze in the trip!

  9. Johnny Domer says:

    Oh no, Father Z’s getting delusions of grandeur, using the royal “we.”

    ;-)

    Come to Notre Dame, Father Z; we’ll put you up!

  10. Brandon says:

    How likely is it that Fr. Z will ever make it to Steuby U during a Semester when we’re all around?

    Dear Father,

    This letter to the editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune appeared today. I did e-mail him and kindly asked him who made him the spokesman for the Catholic Church. He is a Lutheran minister at a Lutheran church in Apple Valley, MN. What does it have to do with Michigan? Nothing.

    POLITICS OF THE EUCHARIST
    Follow Jesus’ lead

    I find it unconscionable that any clergy person would withhold the sacrament from a parishioner because of who he or she is supporting for public office (“The body of Christ, wielded ideologically,” June 4). This is a sacrament of inclusivity, not exclusivity! Consider that first Passover meal when Jesus instituted what we now call the Lord’s Supper.

    Did he exclude either Peter or Judas from the meal even though he surely knew of their upcoming denial and betrayal? Of course not.

    Using the sacraments as a kind of bonus for political or doctrinal correctness demeans the power and the wonder of these gifts. If Jesus did not add conditions and qualifiers to the sacraments, neither should we who represent him to the world.

    THE REV. PAUL L. HARRINGTON,

    APPLE VALLEY

  12. Michael B. says:

    Can’t wait to see a report of today’s doings in K-zoo!
    Wish I could’ve been there.

  13. Orthros says:

    Today was fantastic. We only wish we could have had more time to hear you speak!

    Ah well, we’ll get to assist at a solemn Mass tomorrow with you, Fr. David (Grondz)… and of course, Deacon Harold Potter.

    Thanks to you, I’ll always remember the proper way to greet a Deacon named Harry Potter: “Charmed, I’m sure”. =D

    Yes, it was good to see you there today… and remember for the future that Michigan is on EASTERN TIME! I have since moved on to the Sleep Inn at Midway Airport in Chicago, waiting for the chant intensive on Monday. It would always be good to hear you speak for longer than you were able today. The workshop at St. Mary’s was excellent today… it is always a good experience to visit another parish away from your own, especially when it is one such as St. Mary’s…. and it is so encouraging to see so many people interested in CHANT! Things are changing….

    And as Tex Beneke sang:

    A B C D E F G H
    I got a gal in Kalamazoo.
    Don’t want to boast
    But I know she’s the toast
    of Kalamazoo zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo

    BTW, the Institute of Cisterian Studies is located at Western Michigan University, which is in Kalamazoo zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

    It was nice to see you in Kalamazoo today. Thanks for braving all our rain to be here.

    I went to Jr. and H. school in Ann Arbor, and was Baptized , confirmed etc. at St Francis in Ann Arbor, as an adult; washing away, hopefully, my existentialism and atheism…

  18. Other than not having any electricity, I rather liked Kalamazoo! I hope for a return trip soon.
