FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: Today is the Divine Mercy Sunday when we recall the motivation of God for the great work of redemption – his Infinite Mercy. In the context of our fallen world we may say that everything that God does for us is an expression of His mercy, but it is especially profound in the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Below is the prayer through which we can express our gratitude to God and entrust ourselves to the Divine Mercy. God bless you all! Fr. Bona

Act of Entrustment to the Divine Mercy: O Most Merciful Jesus, Your goodness is infinite, and the treasures of Your grace inexhaustible. I trust boundlessly in Your mercy, which is above all Your works. I consecrate myself to You completely and unreservedly, so as to live and strive for Christian perfection. I want to spread Your mercy by performing works of mercy, both spiritual and corporal, laboring especially for the conversion of sinners, bringing consolation to those in need, to the sick and the suffering.  Guard me then, O Jesus, as Your own possession and Your own glory. Though I sometimes tremble with fear, aware of my weakness, at the same time I have boundless trust in Your mercy. Oh, that all people would come to know the infinite depths of Your mercy, while there is still time, so that they may place their trust in Your merciful love and glorify You forever. Amen.

GOOD FRIDAY COLLECTION (for the Christians in the Holy Land): Since we unintentionally omitted to take up the collection on Good Friday, we will take it up this weekend.

This past year during the pandemic, St. Vincent de Paul Society hunger centers served 9,260 NEW people who found themselves in need of emergency food for the very first time (this is in addition to the other 120,000 people that SVDP normally serves).  Please help by donating to this matching gift campaign today. Not only will your contribution be doubled, but every dollar of your gift will feed up to four people. Donate at svdpcle.org or send a check to: SVDP Race for Hunger Relief, 1404 E. 9th Street-3rd Floor, Cleveland, OH 44114.

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE SICK, especially for Bev Kimar, Béla Tarmann, Rose Dudevszky, Teréz Kalász, Madeleine B. Smith, and Gerő Kondray.

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE DECEASED

PLEASE NOTE — THE COVID 19 DIRECTIVES are still in effect.
