FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: (1) Please note that next Sunday the usual Hungarian Mass will be at the Shrine of St. Elizabeth at 11:30am in conjunction with the celebration of the Feast of St. Elizabeth. On that day, November 19, we will have only the English Mass (9AM) at St. Emeric.
(2) A big thank you to all of you who helped with or supported our patronal feast. I know that it takes a lot of work and sacrifice. I received many compliments from the people for the atmosphere and the food that day.
(3) The results of the November 7th voting are in and it is very sad. Issue 1 was not defeated and the consequence is that late term abortion will become legal in Ohio, parental rights will be restricted and health standards for women will be relaxed. It took $35 million in out-of-state funding and ads filled with fear and deceit to push through this most radical abortion agenda in the country. Humanity has lost. However, we are not giving up and we must continue to offer a pro-life witness. The world needs to be saved from itself and it can be done only through our Lord Jesus Christ and our courage to stay with Him even in the darkest hours.
(4) A note on the sign of peace: the ritual expression of the gift of peace at Mass is not mandatory. Therefore, if the priest does not invite the congregation to exchange the sign of peace, it should not be done. Theologically, the sign of peace is not a liturgical form of “good morning,” but a witness to the Christian belief that true peace is a gift of Christ’s death and resurrection. “This peace of the risen Lord is invoked, preached and spread in the celebration of Mass, even by means of a human gesture lifted up to the realm of the sacred. In the Latin rite, the exchange of peace comes after the consecration because it refers to “the ‘paschal kiss’ of the risen Christ present on the altar.” It comes just before the breaking of the bread during which “the Lamb of God is implored to gives us his peace.” (Quotations from the circular letter of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments on the ritual expression of the gift of peace at Mass, 2014)
