THE FEAST OF THE MOST SACRED HEART OF JESUS

The service in honor of the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was composed by our greatest Liturgist, Father Isidore Dolnytsky, “The service composed by the Prelate, Father Dolnytsky,” says Metropolitn Andrew Sheptytsky,”not only complies with all the liturgical prescriptions, but also as regards its content is a very good rendition of the cult of the infinite love of Christ under the symbol of his heart.” Father Dolnytsky also composed the Akathistos to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which is considered the most beautiful hymn of praise in honor of Christ’s love.
The Archeparchial synod of Lviv, in its directives concerning the cult of Christ’s Love of December 20, 1940, ordered the priest to read the act of consecration to the Heart of Jesus after the Divine Liturgy every year on the third Sunday following the Descent of the Holy Spirit, and gives a formula of the consecration. The Synod approved the practice of the Apostleship of Prayer veneration the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It strongly recommended that priests encourage the faithful to practice the Communion of reparation and to introduce everywhere the Apostleship of Prayer. The synod consecrated the entire Archeparchy of Lviv to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and prescribed that the priests consecrate themselves, their families, their parish and all Ukraine to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The feast pf the Sacred Heart of Jesus was adopted by the Syrian, Maronite, Chaldean, Armenian, Melchite, and Italo-Greek Catholics of the Eastern Church. The revision of our liturgical books conducted by the Holy See in the 1940’s retained the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in our breviary under the name “The Feast of the Most Sweet Lord and God our Savior Jesus Christ, Lover of Mankind.”
In His promises given to St. Margaret Alacoque, Jesus Christ promised the venerators of his Sacred Heart the necessary graces for their state of life; peace in their families; consolation in their pains and trials; assured refuge in life, and especially the grace of a happy death. Millions of souls throughout the world have found peace and happiness, growth in love, and the practice of Christian virtues in the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Please, if you see anyone leaving their garbage at the cemetery in a pile sometimes by the big tree and other times elsewhere, tell them we do not have garbage pick up and to have it removed cost money. We are sorry that the water is not turned on due to the fact that it was abused by outsiders??? washing cars and trucks. You may take water with you to plant and take care of your graves.
Many of the graves have overgrown trees and bushes which are not very nice looking. If only they could either trim around their graves and stones or remove them completely it would make a nicer appearance. The cost for just the maintenance of mowing and trimming is $475. a month. The Care-taker will do the work for the bushes but it is your responsibility for the cost. Anyone who has a stone that is either tipped over or off the foundation should contact Jeremy at 570-951-6483 and to have it repaired or replaced is your cost. The old dry tree should be removed but the cost is very expensive. If anyone knows of someone that cuts down trees please contact the office with the name and number and we will get a few estimates. Your donations to the cemetery is greatly appreciated to help keep up the maintenance.

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary light is requested to burn this week May 29 – June 2 by Charles Drazba in memory of Veronica Carpa.

SUNDAY OF ALL SAINTS
This Sunday closes the Pentecostal season. The Easter Rite Church celebrates this feast in honor of all the Saints canonized and un-canonized, known and unknown.
In commemoration the Saints, the Church presents to her faithful splendid examples of virtues and sanctity, exhorting them to follow in their footsteps. The greatness and perfection of Christians is the work of Christ’s Spirit dwelling in them and of their own cooperation with the graces, which Christ bestows upon them.

MEMORIAL DAY OBSERVANCE
The custom of honoring the graves of the war dead began prior to the end of the Civil War, but the national Memorial Day holiday (or “Decoration Day,” as it was originally named) was first observed on May 30, 1868, on the order of General John Alexander Logan for the purpose of decorating the graves of the American Civil War dead. With the passage of time, Memorial Day was extended to honor all those who died in service to the nation, from the Revolutionary War to the present. It continued to be observed on May 30th until 1971, when most states changed to a newly established federal schedule of holiday observance.
Confederate Memorial Day, once a legal holiday in many southern states, is still observed on the fourth Monday in April in Alabama, and the last Monday in April in Mississippi and Georgia.
A National Moment of Remembrance
May of 1997 saw the start of what is becoming an American tradition recognized by the President and Members of Congress — to put the “memorial” back in Memorial Day. The idea of a National Moment of Remembrance was born a year earlier when children touring Lafayette Park in Washington, DC were asked what Memorial Day meant and they responded, “That’s the day the pools open!”
The “Moment” was initiated by No Greater Love, a Washington, DC-based national humanitarian organization. For the first time in U.S. history, on Memorial Day 1997 “Taps” was played at 3 p.m. in many locations and at events throughout America. This effort was repeated again in 1998 and 1999.
The objective of the “Moment” is to raise Americans’ awareness of the honorable contributions made by those who died while defending our nation and to encourage all Americans to honor those who died as a result of service to this nation by pausing for one minute at 3:00 p.m. (local time) on Memorial Day.
The National Park Service
While we choose to celebrate Memorial Day only once a year, there are a number of U.S. national parks that are 365-day-a-year memorials and testaments to Americans killed in battle throughout our nation’s history. Among the many national parks that commemorate the American Revolution are places like Minute Man National Historical Park, Cowpens National Battlefield, and Fort Stanwix National Monument. The Civil War is remembered through places like Fort Sumter National Monument, Antietam National Battlefield, and Vicksburg National Military Park. Memorials to more recent wars include the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial, and the soon to be built National World War II Memorial.
