FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: (Part 2) Last week I wrote about the great promises that Jesus gave to those who honor His Sacred Heart. In His apparition to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Jesus was also very specific on how to obtain the grace of the 12th promise (grace of final repentance; not dying in the Lord’s displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; Sacred Heart being our assured refuge at that last hour). His request was that one must receive Holy Communion on nine consecutive First Fridays of the month. Obviously, this assumes that the person is in the state of grace. Also, the communicant should have the intention, at least implicitly, of making reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for all the sinfulness and ingratitude of men.

Overall, the two elements of devotion to the Sacred Heart are consecration & reparation. We consecrate ourselves to the Sacred Heart by acknowledging Him as Creator and Redeemer and as having full rights over us as King of Kings, by repenting, and by resolving to serve Him. We make reparation for the indifference and ingratitude with which He is treated and for leaving Him abandoned by humanity. To carry out these general goals of consecration and reparation, there are quite specific devotions authorized by the Church. For example, at the beginning of each day, make an offering of your whole day to the Sacred Heart through the Immaculate Heart of Mary; display the image of the Sacred Heart in our homes; visits to the Blessed Sacrament (Jesus said to St. Mary Alacoque:“I have a burning thirst to be honored by men in the Blessed Sacrament, and I find hardly anyone who strives, according to My desire, to allay this thirst by making Me some return of love”); regularly practicing the First Friday Devotion; Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus; praying the Novena or the Litany to the Sacred Heart.

NEW PAYMENT PROCESS AT WEST SIDE MARKET: Starting Friday, June 7, 2024, there is a new payment process for parking in the West Side Market parking lot. There are no longer any gates because cameras take pictures of license plates as cars enter and exit. Parking is free for the first 60 minutes during market’s open hours. Generally, if you park more than 60 minutes or when the market is closed, you need to take a picture with your phone of the QR code located on signs in the parking lot. This code will take you to an online link and to a website where you can pay for your parking. Those who do not do this will get a bill in the mail. However, if you are participating at an event on the St. Emeric Church property, such as Mass, Hungarian school, scouts, luncheons, meetings or any other event, then you DO NOT HAVE TO PAY! The company that is operating the parking lot for the Market is creating a process that will recognize cars attending St. Emeric events. Copies of the form to register your vehicle were emailed out and some are also available in the church. After registering, you will have 8 hours of parking in the West Side Market parking lot. The filled-out form (check the Opt Out option, you don’t have to do the log-in part), should be scanned and emailed to this email address: tiffany@westsidemarket.org. If new information becomes available, we will provide it as soon as possible.

BLESSED FATHER’S DAY TO ALL THE FATHERS IN OUR PARISH! Several studies have shown that when there is an absentee father as it pertains to the spiritual life of family, the children’s practice of the faith is shaken and often fades away. They are more likely to lose their spiritual bearings. When the father exercises spiritual leadership and models for them a living relationship with God, however, the effectiveness of his witness to the children is undeniable.
