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!


INTRODUCTION: The Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary and The Apostles’ Creed.

ON THE OUR FATHER BEADS: Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

ON THE HAIL MARY BEADS: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

CONCLUSION at the end of each decade, say three times: Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

SOLEMNITY OF THE ANNUNCIATION OF THE LORD: On March 25, the Church celebrates the dawn of salvation, the incarnation of Christ. This year it fell on Holy Monday, so the liturgical celebration was moved to Monday, April 8. What the Immaculate Conception prepared, is being fulfilled today: the eternal Word is coming down by the almighty and creative power of the Holy Spirit as the beginning of supernatural life for the world. The Virgin becomes a mother without stopping being a virgin. The solemnity of Incarnation is imbued with a mystery so profound that we kneel before it with reverence and adoration. When the liturgy commemorates it (in the Angelus, the Creed), we kneel at these words on this day.

REQUEST FOR PHOTOS FROM LANDER ROAD SHRINE: A parishioner is preparing a history of Hungarian Catholic shrines in America and is requesting that anyone who has photographs from the outdoor Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine that was on Lander Road at St. Margaret’s to contact Nicholas Boros at (440) 241-1661 or From the 1940s through at least the 1970s, Cleveland’s Hungarian parishes held pilgrimages to the shrine on Sundays during the summer, so hopefully there are some photos within the albums of community members that can be used to showcase and preserve the legacy of this past gem of our Cleveland Hungarian Catholic community. All photos will be scanned and returned to their owners. Thank you!

CHILDREN’S CATECHETICAL PROGRAM: the next session will be today, Sunday, April 7, after the 11AM Mass. All children are welcome. It will last about 15 minutes.

SAVE THE DATE: Friends and Alumni Dinner on April 28th at the Shrine of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. That day we will not have 11AM Mass at St. Emeric, but, we will transfer it to St. Elizabeth with a 11:30 start time. Following the Mass the dinner will be served. Menu: Stuffed cabbage, sauerkraut, Hungarian baked chicken, parsley potatoes, salad, and dessert. Adults over 16: $25; children (11-15): $15; children under 7: free. RSVP by April 22nd: please, call Virginia at 216-246-2370 or Susan (in Hungarian) at 216-581-4333.
