" Almighty God, we bless You for our lives, we give You praise for Your abundant mercy and grace we receive.  We thank You for Your faithfulness even though we are not that faithful to You.  Lord Jesus, we ask You to give us all around peace in our mind, body, soul and spirit".    Amen.    

"By the suffering of your life, by that sword that pierced you heart, by your perfect joy in heaven, look down on me kindly as I kneel before you, sympathizing with your sorrows and offering you my petition with childlike trust".    Amen.

                                                          Prayer for Ukraine:
                                   "Loving God, We pray for the people of Ukraine, for all those suffering
                                     or afraid, that You will be close to them and protect them.  
                                    We pray for world leaders, for compassion, strength and wisdom to 
                                     guide their choices.  We pray for the world that in this moment of 
                                     crisis, we may reach out in solidarity to our brothers and sisters
                                     in need.  May we walk in Your ways so that peace and justice
                                     become a reality for the people of Ukraine and for all the world.

St. Vincent de Paul Society Blanket Sunday is October 14-15 - This weekend marks the 37th Annual Blanket Sunday Collection to help the poor.  Due to sanitary concerns and lack of storage space, we will gratefully accept your financial donation and do the shopping for you, making your money go even further with bulk purchases of blankets and other items needed by the homeless and disadvantaged.  So please "blanket" someone for the winter and give yourself a warm feeling!  White envelopes for this purpose are available in the church pews or you may want to use your own plain white envelope and label it "SVDP Blanket Sunday".  Put it into the offertory collection basket on that weekend.  Make checks out to Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.  One check will then be forwarded to the SVDP Diocesan Office.  Donations can also be made securely online:  (www.svdpcle.org).  Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish donated $505.00 last year

5th Annual Cleveland Catholic Women's Conference is Saturday, October 21, 2023 - A Day of Reflection from 9 am to 4 pm at Magnificat High School, 20770 Hilliard Blvd., Rocky River.  Following the National Eucharistic Revival, our theme for this year focuses on the Eucharist and a quote by St. Elizabeth of the Trinity "Let Yourself Be Loved".   The day will begin with Mass at 9 am celebrated by Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland, Michael Woost.  Guest speakers are Sr. Joseph Andrew Bogdanowicz and Rachel Bulman.  The music throughout the day will be led by Elizabeth Gonzalez.  Register (www.clecatholicwomen.org).  Cost is $45 per person ($25 for students, free for religious).  Contact:  Jan Ricard, Chairperson (330-687-3885) or (jenricard@tobcle.org).  Detailed information about this conference can be found on our church bulletin board.

Pray the Rosary - The month of October has traditionally been a time for us, as members of the Catholic Church, to concentrate more on praying the Rosary, daily if possible.  Praying the Rosary as a family helps its members to remain unified in a time when it faces many challenges today from secular society.  Fathers Ralph Hudak and Andrzej Panek encourage you to pray the Rosary.  Plus, they request the help of parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts and uncles to reach the younger members of the family (including teenagers and young adults) about this beautiful prayer.  Devotion to Jesus' mother, Mary, our mother too, is important for our spiritual well-being.  Remember to meditate on one of the Mysteries of the Rosary (Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious or Luminous) as you pray it.  As a parish family, we pray the Rosary before the 4:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. Masses during the month of October.  Father Andrzej Panek has a 6:00 p.m. Polish Mass on all Fridays during October which includes a devotion in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Respect Life Sunday is October 1st - the observance emphasizes concern for all human life, especially that of the unborn child, the elderly, persons with disabilities, the terminally ill and others whose lives are easily threatened.  For more information contact locally:  Pro-Life Office, 7911 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland at 216-334-2965, or nationally (www.usccb.org/prolife), or (www.clevelandcatholiccharities.org/prolife), or see the literature in the church pamphlet and bulletin racks about these issues, November 7th vote on Issue #1 which the Church encourages us to vote NO.

Fr. Andrzej Panek has asked that this information be communicated to IHM parishioners - On a "day of joy" in Poland, the Catholic Church on Sunday, September 10, 2023 in Markowa, Poland for the first time beatified an entire family at once:  Jozef and Wiktoria Ulma and their seven children, who were martyred during World War II for sheltering two Jewish families from the Nazis.  "It would be misleading if the day of the beatification of the Ulma family served only to bring back to memory the terror of the atrocities perpetrated by their executioners, on whom, by the way, the judgment of history already weighs heavily".  Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, prefect of the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints, said September 10 in his homily at the beatification Mass.  It was attended by some 30,000 people in the family's village of Markowa in southeastern Poland.  "Instead," the cardinal continued, "we want today to be a day of joy, because the page of the Gospel written on paper has become for us a lived reality, which shines brightly in the Christian witness of the Ulma family and in the martyrdom of the new Blesseds".

Thank You from our Neighboring Parish - The Society of St. Vincent de Paul-St. John Nepomucene Church would like to thank the parishioners of IHM Church for your very generous donation of canned and boxed products to our food pantry (15 boxes) on September 8, 2023.  Your kindness and thoughtfulness was very much appreciated and will go a long way in helping those less fortunate.  May God Bless you all!  Tom Vavrek - President.

People of Good Will - The amendment to enshrine abortion into the Ohio Constitution will officially be on the November 7th ballot.  The Church must not be silent and cannot remain on the sidelines when confronted with such a clear threat to human life.  Therefore, the Catholic Conference of Ohio (CCO), in collaboration with the 6 Catholic dioceses (Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Steubenville, Toledo and Youngstown) across the state, is equipping parishes with resources to inform Catholics in Ohio about the dangers of the amendment and encourage them to VOTE NO in November.  More information will be forthcoming.

Reminder About the Three-Year Nationwide Eucharistic Revival - In their November 2021 meeting , the U.S. bishops announced their intention to launch this revival.  This effort officially began on Corpus Christi Sunday, June 19, 2022 and its includes a Eucharistic Congress in 2024.  The bishops' goal is to "rekindle Christ by embracing Truth, Beauty and Goodness of His Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist".  A diocesan focus will include Eucharistic processions and adoration events.  Beginning in 2023, the Parish year will emphasize what the Eucharist really means.  The third year, 2024, includes a Eucharistic Congress in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis from July 17-21.  Further developments of this revival will be forth coming.

Immaculate Heart of Mary St. Vincent de Paul Society - A short explanation about how this group in our parish helps others through your donations in can, dry and paper goods.  Many of these items have been given to the Ozanam Center located on the grounds of Holy Name Church.   It is a food distribution center, which people visit on Saturday mornings to receive some help.  Volunteers come from a variety of city and suburban parishes to help at the Ozanam Center.  When IHM's shelves have too many can, dry and paper goods, we send some to this Center.  We are not busy with people coming to the rectory requesting these items.  It only happens periodically, and not on a regular basis.  Our society does not have many members (three and none are young) so we do what we can with our parishioners' donations.  Father Ralph Hudak.

Standing with Moms in Need (for your information) - "The Catholic Church has a long standing history of service to those who are most vulnerable and remains the largest private provider of social services in the United States.  Through the sacrificial efforts of faithful Catholics, the Church serves millions through diocesan ministries and agencies, Catholic hospitals and healthcare systems, immigration clinics, shelters, and Catholic schools and parishes.  From religious communities to pregnancy care centers, from refugees' resettlement services to foster care and adoption agencies, and from maternity home to parish-based ministries, the Church consistently bears witness in word and deed to the beauty and dignity of every human life-including both mother and child".  (U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops)

​​​Help Protect the Dignity of Life in Ohio - Life in its earliest and most vulnerable stages is threatened by groups proposing an amendment to the Ohio Constitution for the November 2023 ballot to expand and enshrine abortion at the expense of protections for preborn children and women.  The Catechism of the Catholic Church proclaims that "human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception".  The Church accompanies and supports women facing unexpected pregnancies and mothers through programs like "Walking with Moms in Need" and the services of the Catholic Charities.  The bishops of Ohio strongly encourage Catholics statewide to unite in prayer and work to defeat this proposed amendment and its grave consequences for women and preborn children in Ohio.  More information will be forthcoming through our church bulletin.  Learn more about the proposed amendment and access resources online at:  (ohiocathconf.org/protect).​​​​​​

Protecting God's Children - The Diocese of Cleveland's "Protecting God's Children" program is a continuing effort to instruct and inform everyone about the protection of children for sexual abuse.  To report any past or present suspected inappropriate behavior towards children by priests, deacons, religious, lay ecclesial ministers or personnel associated with the Church, please contact the diocesan response Service Office at 216-334-2999 or via email at responseservice@dioceseofcleveland.org.  You are also asked to immediately inform local authorities about inappropriate behavior.

Practicing Spiritual Communion - When the faithful are unable to physically attend Mass, they should be recommended to practice "spiritual communion", an act to which the saints have given a consistent witness.  Spiritual communion is a traditional practice of expressing to the Lord our longing for Him and our desire for Him to enter our hearts.  St. Theresa of Avila (1515-82) said:  "When you do not receive Communion and you do not attend Mass, you can make a spiritual communion, which is a most beneficial practice; by it the love of God will be greatly impressed on you".  While there is no formula prescribed by the Church to make an act of spiritual communion, prayers composed by various saints are part of the Church's rich treasury of devotions.  One of the most popular acts of spiritual communion comes from St. Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787):

                     "My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the most Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul.  Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to you.  Never permit me to be separated from You.  Amen"

The Sunday Mass can be seen on television at 10:00 am on WUAB Channel 43.  This provides the viewers with an opportunity to take part in the weekly celebration of the Mass at a much more convenient time.  In addition, WUAB 43 is an over-the-air station that is accessible even to those without cable TV.  Those with cable TV need only to check their local cable system listing to determine where WUAB is located on their channel line-up.  The weekly TV Mass is produced by the Diocese of Cleveland, it originates from the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in downtown Cleveland.  The televised Mass has been a staple of religious programming on Northeast Ohio airwaves for decades, cultivating a dedicated and faithful following.  It is hoped that viewers will continue to tune in to this new station at this new, more convenient time.  The TV Mass can also be accessed on demand starting Saturday evening and running throughout Sunday on the Diocese of Cleveland website, www.dioceseofcleveland.org.  In addition, the Mass can be heard on the radio at AM 1260 The Rock at 4:00 pm on Saturdays and 10:30 am on Sundays.  Also, radio station WINT 1330 AM airs the Mass each Sunday at 9:00 am and Cox Communications cable subscribers can view the Mass on Sunday at 11:30 am on channel 45, and cable station EWTN has its own Sunday and weekday (8:00 am, Noon & 7:00 pm) schedule of Masses.  In addition to Holy Mass, AM 1260 The Rock offers numerous opportunities for prayer throughout the day.  The Holy Rosary at 5:30 am & 9:30 pm and the Divine Mercy Chaplet:  5:00 am Monday thru Friday; 3:00 pm Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Please visit am1260therock.com for their full schedule.

The Mass is the Greatest of Prayers - some reasons for Mass intentions are an expression of our faith, belief in life after death, belief in the power of prayer to help the deceased during their time of purification (souls in purgatory), for a particular person or persons who have died, for an anniversary of death, wedding anniversary, for health, alcohol-drug addiction, financial help, peace in the world, for our government, a happy death, respect for life, Devotion to Mary or any other special intention.


​   "Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided.  Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.  To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.  O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me".   Amen. 

            "Lord, Jesus, You are never far away from those who call upon You with a sincere heart.  Today, we are gripped with fear and stumble in the darkness of sorrow.  Stay with us, too, we pray, in every part of our journey, no matter how full of doubt or fear and disappointed we may be, so that walking side by side with us and making Yourself our Guest, we may regain our wholeness and be filled with an unending joy of Your presence".    Amen
