FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: Our bishop, Bishop Edward Malesic has issued a letter (9/30/20) on the upcoming election (https://www.dioceseofcleveland.org/faithful-citizenship). Some copies are provided in the back of the church (main doors) and below are few excerpts. Let us keep praying! Fr. Bona
…In casting our ballot … we must have properly formed consciences. A properly formed conscience comes through prayer, Scripture and studying the teachings of the Church that is promoted and protected by the apostles and their successors, the bishops. … A well-formed conscience is devoted to doing God’s will more than it is to supporting any particular political party. As such, I wanted to write this letter to help you in forming your conscience in preparation for the vote that you will soon cast. Our bishops have said, and I agree with them, that “the threat of abortion remains our preeminent priority because it directly attacks life itself, because it takes place within the sanctuary of the family and because of the number of lives destroyed.” The consistent teaching of the Church regarding the intrinsic evil of abortion seeks to secure all other rights as well. We are not a “single issue” church; there are other extremely important rights that we must defend, to be sure; but these additional rights flow from and are rooted in the fundamental right to life itself. St. Pope John Paul II stated, “Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights – for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture – is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination.” (Christifideles laici, No. 38)…
PRIVATE, DIRECTED RETREAT Women suffering after abortion are invited to begin their healing journey by scheduling an individual retreat at Bethesda House of Mercy during the months of October and November. Confession will be available. Social distancing and other guidelines due to Covid-19 will be followed.
