FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: (1) The image on the front cover of the bulletin refers to this Sunday’s gospel passage: “I am the vine, you are the branches.” In this gospel passage, Jesus highlights His irreplaceable role, as without Him we cannot bear fruit in life. We cannot do anything. Conversely, if we do not stay with Him, we will wither and be thrown into the fire to be burned (eternal punishment). In sum, when it comes to Jesus, we have only these two options: either fully accepting Him (and thus having true life in us), or losing everything without Him. Our archenemy tries to convince us that there is a life to be had between these two options, that we do not need to be fully committed to the Catholic way of life, that our lukewarm approach to Christ is fine. However, this is the devil’s ploy to stop us from reaching for the fullness of life. He knows very well that if we stop working on ourselves (we are all weak), we start to slide back even more. On the hand, if we keep working on fully embracing the life of Christ, with His help, we end up overcoming our weaknesses, and begin to lead a spiritually fruitful life. Let us ask the Lord to show us where we still need to make changes in life, and let us not be afraid of making them. We will never regret it.

(2) This Sunday, for our Hungarian Mass we are gathering at the Shrine of St. Elizabeth (Mass at 11:30AM). It is good to be here, at the mother-church of the Hungarian Catholics in US. Welcome to all of you and especially our honored guests and alumni of St. Elizabeth School.

Parking is available in the small church lot at the corner of Bridge Ave. and W. 22nd St. or the West Side Market parking lot (where we can validate for free parking). Margaret Lynch from the Irish American Archives Society will present a program where she will share her findings of a large Hungarian population who lived in this area by the Cuyahoga River. Discussion will entail what Hungarian cultural memorial aspects the present-day Hungarian community would want to include in the plans for this region where a park will be installed. Please stop by for this meeting if you are interested in this project, it is open to the public. For further information please write to
