St. Charles Borromeo Church                 May 1, 2016

  A few days ago, Sister Patricia Dippel, OSU, who has been with us at St Charles since 1988, informed me that the time has come for her to retire

from active ministry and to return to the Ursuline Motherhouse in Pepper Pike. Sister Patricia grew up in a large family at St Philomena Parish in East Cleveland. After graduating from Ursuline Academy of the Sacred Heart in 1947, Sister joined the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland. The Ursulines had educated her at both St Philomena Grade School and at Sacred Heart. As was the custom in those days, Sister received the religious name of “Joseph Francis.” Sister was, in turn, a classroom teacher at St Therese in Garfield Heights, Christ the King in East Cleveland, and served as principal at both St Jerome in Cleveland and then at St Francis de Sales in Parma. Sister also directed the formation program for young nuns at the Motherhouse. After the Second Vatican Council, Sister was permitted to take back her baptismal name, “Patricia.” Sister came to St Charles in 1988 as a sixth grade teacher. Some years later, Sister became a secretary in our school office. I then asked Sister to serve as Minister to Seniors. Sister began by visiting the oldest parishioners (in their 100’s) and then “worked her way down” to those in their seventies. Sister was faithful to Guild and to Seniors meetings. She has spent sixty-nine years doing good as an Ursuline Sister, twenty-eight of those years at St Charles. Sister Patricia’s many years of dedication to us calls for a formal farewell. On Sunday, May 29, at the 9:00am Mass, we will thank Sister for her loving service to St Charles. After Mass, in the Lower Parish Hall, our Parish Council will hold a Donut Social Reception in Sister’s honor. All are welcome at that Farewell Mass and Reception on Sunday May 29. God bless Sister Patricia Dippel and the dozens of Ursuline Sisters who have served St Charles Borromeo Parish so faithfully since 1924. This Sunday afternoon, at two o’clock, we will celebrate First Communion Day. My mother was fond of saying “If you have the second graders praying for you, you will have no troubles.” I think my Mom was right! Thank you to the teachers and to the administrators of our Day School and PCRF programs for all their dedicated work. This is one of the happiest days in parish life and one of the most joyous for me as a parish priest! Our new Jail Ministry Group will meet this Monday, May 2, 7:00pm, in the John XXIII Room (second floor) , Parish Activities Center. Interested in learning more about simple but significant things we can do to help the imprisoned? If so, please stop by at our meeting. No commitment required at this time; just bring an open mind! Remember: Pancake Breakfast this Sunday morning after the 7:30, 9:00, and 10:30am Masses, Lower Hall. This year’s intern, Matt Cortnik, returned to St Mary Seminary on Monday. Has asked me to share this note: “I am very grateful for my year with you at St Charles. I thank you for your prayers, support, and friendship. Father Car-lin, the parishioners, priests, religious, and staff have inspired me to seek priestly ministry wholeheartedly. You remain in my prayers and I ask you to pray for me, my classmates, and my fellow semi-narians. Please pray, too, that more young men may consider a priestly vocation.

The Isenheim Altarpiece is an altarpiece sculpted and painted by, respectively, Niclaus of Haguenau and Matthias Grünewald, between the years 1512-

16. It is on display at the Unterlinden Museum at Colmar, in France. In 2012, the museum celebrated its 500th anniversary of this masterpiece. By far, it is Grünewald’s greatest and largest work. It was painted for the Monastery of St. Anthony in Isenheim, which specialized in hospital work. The Antonine monks of the monastery were especially noted for their care of those suffering from the plague, as well as their treatment of skin diseases, such as ergotism. Ergotism, a devastating skin disease, often fatal, caused by eating ryes and other grains or grasses infected with ergot fungus, was, in fact, commonly known as St. Anthony’s Fire. The image of the crucified Christ is pitted with plague-like sores, showing patients that Jesus understood and shared their afflictions.

WINGS CLOSED: The altarpiece has two sets of wings, displaying three configurations. With the exception of certain holy days, the wings of the altarpiece were kept closed, displaying most often, the Crucifixion (Fig 1), framed on the left by the martyrdom of St. Sebastian pierced by arrows, and on the right by St. Anthony the Great, remaining placid although he is being taunted by a frightening monster. The two saints protect and heal the sick; St. Anthony as the patron of the victims of St. Anthony’s fire and St. Sebastian, whose aid was invoked to ward off the plague. Grünewald’s Crucifixion stands as one of the most poignant representations of this scene in Western art due to the artist’s masterful depiction of horrific agony, with Christ’s emaciated body writhing under the pain of the nails driven through his hands and feet. This body covered with sores and riddled with thorns must have terrified the sick, but also left no doubt about Christ’s suffering, thus comforting them in their communion with the Savior, whose pain they shared. Mary, the mother of Jesus, is shown at Christ’s right, collapsing in anguish in the arms of John, the beloved disciple of Christ, and shrouded in a large piece of white cloth.

At Christ’s left, John the Baptist is accompanied by a lamb, symbolizing the sacrifice of Jesus. The presence of John the Baptist is chronologically inconsistent. Beheaded by order of Herod in 29 ad, he could not possibly have witnessed the death of Christ. This last figure announces the New Testament by crying out in Latin: illum oportet crescere me autem minui (John 3:30), “He must increase, but I must decrease.” The inclusion of John the Baptist in this scene is symbolic, since he is considered as the last of the prophets to announce the coming of the Messiah.

OUTER WINGS OPENED: When the outer wings were opened for important festivals of the liturgical year, on Sundays and special feast days, particularly those in honor of the Virgin Mary, a splendorous array of four brightly colored panels presented the viewer with an even more unorthodox program of familiar Christian themes: the Annunciation, the

Incarnation (the Nativity of Christ), and the Resurrection of Christ (Fig 2).

One of the great masterpieces of mystic expression in art is Grünewald’s Resurrection, represented on the final panel. The figure of Christ rises in a burst of light so bright that the soldiers are struck down and cannot face his radiant glory (Front Cover). Here, the artist turns to pure colors, a rainbow spectrum in fact, that transforms all corporeal matter into divine light. The giant glory about Christ radiates in nearly imperceptible circles from the golden yellow at the center through the spectrum of colors to darker blues, violets, and purplish-black of the night sky. In turn, these colors transform Christ’s long, unfurling shroud into a translucent train of delicate draperies floating above the harsher and more metallic costumes of the guards and earthbound forms of the landscape. The figure of Christ truly seems to rise upward as an earthly being transfigured in the bright light.

Of the countless paintings of the Resurrection created across the centuries and throughout the world, there are few that can rival the beauty of Grünewald’s Resurrection. This painting immediately arrests the viewer with its striking use of vibrant color and dramatic contrasts. In this image, the words of the Exultet, proclaimed by the deacon at the Easter Vigil, find a visual resonance:

Be glad, let earth be glad, as glory floods her, ablaze with light from her eternal King, let all corners of the earth be glad, knowing an end to gloom and darkness.

The golden light of the sun and the silver light of the moon merge behind the head of the risen Christ, and the stars shimmer with an even greater brilliance in the midnight sky. These are the witnesses to the Resurrection.

O truly blessed night, worthy alone to know the time and hour when Christ rose from the underworld!

This is the night of which it is written: The night shall be as bright as day, dazzling is the night for me, and full of gladness.

But there is more than mystical light to be reckoned with here. The body of the risen Christ is a translucent form dissolving in its own light. The legs and arms are white and glowing; the head of Christ dissolves into a sun with the facial features barely traced across it; and the festered wounds of his body are now sparkling rubies of pure red. For those afflicted with the terrible skin diseases of the day, these images offered a sense of hope: if they kept their faith in Christ, they too could be cleansed. In Grünewald’s Resurrection, we witness the deification of the human, the return of flesh to the divine in the most majestic of terms.
