FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: (1) The Most Holy Trinity is difficult to depict in art. In 2021, I wrote about the biblically inspired images that have been used to approximate this mystery. However, artists at times have recourse to abstract symbols as well. One of them is the so-called “Trinity shield” (see the cover of the bulletin). It has a triangle within a shield (or at times a circle). The circle in the center has the word Deus, “God.” The three outer circles are labeled Pater, Filius, and Spiritus Sanctus, “Father,” “Son,” and “Holy Spirit.” Each connects to the “God” circle by means of a ribbon with the word est, “is.” In other words, each of the three “is” God. At the same time, the ribbons connecting the three to each other bear the words non est, “is not.” That is, the Father is not the Son and is not the Holy Spirit; the Son is not the Father and is not the Holy Ghost; and the Holy Ghost is not the Father and the Son.

(2) Thank you to all of you who have helped organize and run the last week’s Annual Benefit luncheon. Even though we were around 100 strong in attendance, we were able to raise $3,800 for the Hungarians in Transcarpathia (in Ukraine). We appreciate all your generosity. If you would like to contribute to this, you may still do so, just indicate with your donations the intention (Hungarians in Transcarpathia). Thank you again to all of you!

NEXT WEEK (JUNE 2) IS THE FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI: We will hold our traditional outdoor procession, weather permitting. I would like to thank those who had decorated the outdoor altars in the past and would like to ask them, if they can, to continue this beautiful service. If you have flower petals, please bring them for extra decoration on the ground. I also ask the children to participate by wearing their white dresses, and to scatter the flower petals in front of the Blessed Sacrament in the procession.

DEANERIES: The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland is adopting a new organizational structure with the establishment of 12 deaneries, which will equip parishes throughout the eight-county diocese to more effectively coordinate collaborative ministries and develop pastoral plans. The deanery structure replaces the district structure that has been in place for a number of years. All parishes within the diocese have been assigned to one of 12 deaneries based on geographic location, with each being led by an assigned dean – a pastor with significant experience – with the support of a new, full-time position in the bishop’s office. As of June 1, St. Emeric will belong to Cleveland – Central deanery and the dean will be Fr. Jim Roach from St. John Cantius in Tremont. The parishes belonging with us to this deanery are: St. Augustine, St. Barbara, St. John Cantius, St. Malachi, St. Michael the Archangel, St. Patrick, Bridge Avenue, St. Rocco, Cleveland, St. Wendelin, Sagrada Familia, St. Colman, St. Stephen, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Boniface, St. Andrew Kim.

Each dean is charged with fostering accountability in matters of parish governance, and helping with the care and support of their brother priests and deacons. They will call together a deanery committee that consists of lay staff, clergy, (active and retired) and religious, engaged in ministry in parishes and other ministries within the deanery. A deanery chair will be appointed to lead the process of developing and implementing a pastoral plan for each deanery.

LAST WEEKEND’S COLLECTION: Collection: $2,275; Renovation Fund: $290. May God reward your generosity in supporting the church. Thank you for sending in your donations by mail or using our website

THE 2024 CATHOLIC CHARITIES FOLLOW-UP APPEAL will take place next weekend in our parish. All funds raised this weekend will strengthen Catholic Charities’ Substance Use Disorder treatments and programs in the 8 counties of the Diocese of Cleveland.

PRAYER FOR MEMORIAL DAY: God of power and mercy, you destroy war and put down earthly pride. Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears, that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters. Keep in your mercy those men and women who have died in the cause of freedom and bring them safely into your kingdom of justice and peace. We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord. R/. Amen

THIS SUNDAY the 11:00 AM Mass from St. Emeric church will be livestreamed at and
