    Dear Friends,

    In the past week we have all experienced so much pain and frustration as we watch events unfold on the nightly news.  On the heels of personal and economic hardships stemming from Covid19, the tragic and senseless death of George Floyd has left our nation in a dark place – and left all of us hurting.

    Listening to Archbishop Lori’s Pentecost Mass online last weekend, I was struck by how the message of this important feast day resonates for all of us in these turbulent times – regardless of who we are, where we live or how we worship.  

    In his homily, the Archbishop shared that we are struggling with two pandemics – not just the corona virus, but also “the infectious disease of racism”.  Like the Apostles sent forth on that first Pentecost, we are all called to live as people of PEACE, sharing that peace in our homes, in our places of business and in our communities.  You can read this inspiring  homily in its entirety by clicking here: https://www.archbalt.org/archbishop-loris-homily-05-31-20/

    Over the past year, I know I have talked a lot about being grateful.  Well, today more than ever before, I am grateful for YOU – my colleagues and friends in the Catholic Business Network of Baltimore who share a commitment to living as people of FAITH and of PEACE. 

    Clearly, PRAYER is more important today than ever - and something each of us can do to help make a difference in our world.  I invite you to pray for healing in the days ahead.  Even more important, I thank you for all that you do each day to be, in the words of Archbishop Lori, “messengers of peace to an ailing world”.

    May God continue to bless you and your loved ones with good health, happiness and PEACE.

    Gratefully,

    Meg Ducey,
    FY2020 CBNB President

    Adapting to Change. Opportunity is Here.

    David S. Brown
    President, DSB Leadership Group

    The health pandemic left many individuals and businesses displaced and struggling with their identity and with finding their way.  We’ve all been affected and yet some are still at that crossroads not sure of which direction they should go. 

    I have had heard far too many people jokingly say that they wish they could ‘hit the reset button’ on 2020 and do it all again.  It has been sad indeed to see so many of our favorite local restaurants and businesses have to close their doors.  Just as sad was the realization for so many of our youth – our future leaders not be able to celebrate their graduation with their peers. 

    We’ve certainly taken a punch and it has not felt great.  We’ve had the wind knocked out of us.  You and I are a testament to the human spirit that while we may have been knocked down; we have not been knocked out.  We will adapt to this change and rise up as Champions.

    In the 1960’s, a model known as the Gleicher Change Formula was developed to assess the relative strengths affecting the likely success of an organization’s ability to handle complex changes.  While the formula over the years has taken on various tweaks, the overall formula remains relatively the same.  D x V x F must be > than R.

    D stands for Dissatisfaction.

    Dissatisfied with the current situation. Is it bad enough, or unproductive enough?

    V stands for Vision.

    What is possible?  What opportunities can we take advantage of?  Is it clear and clearly communicated?         

    F stands for First Steps.

    What realistic steps can be taken now towards the vision?

    R stands for Resistance to Change.

    Change for most is uncomfortable.  Resistance to Change needs to be overcome in order for the initiative to be successful.    

    All three of the factors must hold some weight in order to drive the change process onwards.

    Breakout Session

    Choose 1 of the 3

    Which of the 3 Components (D, V or F) needs to be addressed to ensure successful change with your business/practice/career?  Now dig deeper and ask What, When and How? 

    1 Corinthians 15:8-11

    God’s grace was at work.  He did not deserve this change and yet the grace of God still motivated him to change. 

    I do not deserve the blessings in my life – yes, I have made plenty of mistakes but I thank God that he has been gracious.  I am a sinner and it is that grace which compels me and so I cannot stay the same.   

    2 Corinthians 5:17

    “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come”

    When we accepted Christ, there was an incredible transformation.  What a change and we’ve adapted because of Christ and the Father’s incredible love. 

     

    Powerful quote by Marianne Williamson

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.

    Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.

    Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.

    The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.

    We are not held back by the love we didn't receive in the past, but by the love we're not extending in the present.

    In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it.

    We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what's wrong in your life, or you can focus on what's right.

    The goal of spiritual practice is full recovery, and the only thing you need to recover from is a fractured sense of self.

    Maturity includes the recognition that no one is going to see anything in us that we don't see in ourselves. Stop waiting for a producer. Produce yourself.

    I deepen my experience of God through prayer, meditation, and forgiveness.

    Psalm 139:14

    “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made"

    Breakout Session

    Claim Victory

    What do we stand to gain if we adapt and change? 

    Now that we have gotten some clarity or should I say perspective, here is some encouragement by way of a few Tips to ensure we seize the opportunity before us.

    As spiritually minded leaders, let us truly lead.  This is how you impact the 3 components: Dissatisfaction, Vision & First Steps

    Be influential by being full of empathy.  Meet people where they are.

    Build stronger connections/partnerships & ideas

    Focus on faith and your core values instead of fear. Remember that perfect love drives out fear (1 John 4:18)

    What is this feeling of displacement and how do I deal with it?

    A presentation to the Catholic Business Network of Baltimore
    By: Matt Anthony

    We’ve all experienced it.  That moment when an event you’ve planned, or something you assumed was going to happen, goes awry.  It can be triggered by something as simple as a flat tire or a sick child.  You miss an appointment or you have to cancel a night out, and you end up frustrated and out-of-sorts.

    That feeling is displacement, a disruption from the norm or the expected.  It occurs when something that you are relying on is removed in some way.  And our experiences of displacement start early in our lives.  My 6-year-old son HATES it when something is snatched out of his hand (which, unfortunately, is pretty often).  It sends him into a fury.  He had a plan for that exact crayon! How dare you take it from him!

    Of course there are major, life altering forms of displacement.  These are things like separation or divorce, job loss, significant health issues, or even the death of a loved one.

    It was on the evening of my wife’s birthday fourteen years ago that my doctor called (a call that I was expecting) to tell me that I had a brain tumor.  At the time, we were blissfully enjoying the early years of our marriage – and then, suddenly, our plans and dreams were put on hold and cast into serious doubt.

    Yeah, you can say that we felt a bit displaced.

    Since then, one of the key things that I have learned about displacement is that, while it is often triggered by an outside event, displacement is really your internal response to that external event.  And it is how well we are able to deal with the disruption in our lives that directly impacts our feelings of displacement.

    We all know that human beings, generally, are not thrilled with change – especially unexpected change.  We also don’t like losing control of something that we expect to be able to control.  And, as I’ve mulled over this for the past couple weeks, I’ve begun to think that our experiences of displacement actually start before that external, triggering event.

    So, are there ways that we can prepare ourselves for these unexpected disruptions?  We should all understand that there will be significant external events that cause feelings of displacement that, no matter how ‘prepared’ you may be, will hurt.  But a better understanding of displacement may help you deal with these moments.  My point is this: You control more of your experience of displacement than you may realize.

    Right now, we are all experiencing a common trigger of displacement.  Covid-19 has, without a doubt, sent people reeling.  It is truly a massive ‘WHO MOVED MY CHEESE!?!’ moment.  But, while Covid-19 is the common thread, each of our own experiences of displacement are as unique as we are as individuals. So, a coping mechanism that works for one person won’t necessarily work for the next.

    To get through this without losing our minds, we need to get a better grasp of our own feelings of displacement and try to recognize the opportunities that may be unfolding in front of us.  In order to do this, you should ask yourself where your primary feelings of anxiousness and uncertainty are.  It is your professional life? Your personal life?  Your spiritual life?

    As I reflected on this idea of displacement, I found myself thinking about a random passage in scripture.  Matthew 6: 25-31 – otherwise known as the ‘lilies of the field’ passage.  I kept thinking about it, then dismissing it, then it would pop back in my head again.  So, I found it in my bible and read it – and I came away with the same thing I always take from it.  “Yeah, that’s a nice idea.  God loves us so much that we can give up everything and He will take care of us.”  Well, there is no way that I am going to stop worrying about feeding and taking care of my family.  And I am certain Jesus doesn’t expect me to stop worrying about this either.  And for those of who who’ve lost your primary source of income, I know that you are worrying about how to pay the mortgage or rent – and how to feed those you love, too.

    So, why did the Holy Spirit slip this passage into my head?  Well, I decided to read on…

    “But strive FIRST for the kingdom of God and his righteousness and
    all these things will be given to you.”

    And there it was.  Simple as that.

    When I sponsored the CBNB meeting last August, my remarks included this: “we are all uniquely designed and created by God.  And we are created for a specific purpose.”  If we believe this and make this purpose a priority (if we ‘strive first’ for this), then this passage from Matthew doesn’t sound so crazy or out-of-touch.  Jesus is simply asking us to try to put God’s plan for us first.  Give it priority in your life.

    As a life-long Catholic, I am kind-of ashamed to admit that I don’t know 90% of the prayers that all good Catholics should know.  So, in my effort to make up for this, I’ve come up with an easy-to-remember 9-syllable prayer.  And I try to say it (and mean it) every morning.

    “Lord, let your will be done in my life.”

    If this comes true, then I’m pretty much set.  Right?

    Have you given much thought to what God has intended for you?  In this time of quarantine, there have been many instances of people discovering things about themselves – or about the world around them – that they hadn’t seen before.  These are moments of grace that God wants us to experience.  They help us move closer to the people we are called to be.  What have you discovered about yourself?

    On Sunday, March 22nd – the second Sunday that churches were closed – my family gathered in our living room for the live-stream Mass offered by our parish.  The Gospel that Sunday jumped out at me.  It is a story we’ve all heard many time.  You know, the one where Jesus MacGyver’d a cure for blindness using his spit and some dirt.  Pretty amazing stuff.

    One particular line jumped out at me – one that I’ve heard but never given much thought.  The disciples asked Jesus what caused the man’s blindness, the sins of his parents or the man’s own sins? 

    Jesus’ response?

    “He was born blind so that God’s works might be revealed in him.”  (John 9:3)

    Who do we blame for our displacement?  We naturally turn to practical reasons for why crappy things happen.  The practical answers offer moments of hope, consolation.  Perhaps they give reason to the unreasonable.

    But when I heard that line in the Gospel, the script was flipped for me.  Rather than asking who is at fault for this pandemic or whose massive sin caused THIS, perhaps I should be asking how God’s works can be revealed through all of this.

    We are uniquely designed and created by God to be right here, right now. We need to ask ourselves: What is God asking me to do in this time and place?  I believe that your way through this (and any other) displacement starts with this question. 

    If this is something you want to discover about yourself, perhaps you can come up with your own home-made prayer.  Or you can borrow mine, if you’d like. 

    A sign that your prayer is being answered may come in the form of you feeling ‘nudged’ to do something.   Don’t ignore that nudge.  It just may be something that will lead you out of your displacement, because there is no greater feeling of peace and fulfillment than finding out what you are meant to do and doing it.

    After many twists and turns, Fr. Paschal Morlino, OSB and a few dedicated volunteers initiated the broadcast of Baltimore's first 24-hour Catholic Radio Station, WVTO 92.7. 

    Fr. Paschal and his radio team then learned that the FCC had an opening for a new, low-powered FM station to be built at 92.7 MHz and decided to pursue a broadcast license for that frequency. The process took three years before obtaining a license and the go ahead to build a station from the FCC on August 28, 2016. 

    The station started in early March, 2017, humbly broadcasting out of an upper room in Southwest Baltimore's St. Benedict Church, former school with the antenna in the church steeple. In June, 2017, WVTO began broadcasting 24/7.

    Because the service operates under an agreement similar to a Public Service Announcement, the signal isn't as strong as it could be. The staff and Board Members are currently seeking to move to antenna to a downtown location to get a much wider broadcast area.

    If you, or someone you know can aid in the efforts to create a stronger signal, please contact Fr. Paschal Morlino, OSB at 410-947-4988 or pamorlino@aol.com
