Ember Days

Many may know of the existence of Ember Days, but how many know the meaning and history of them?

The Ember Days (Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday) occur four times per year, in conjunction with the four seasons. Traditionally speaking, they are days of fasting and abstinence.

A post on Rorate Caeli from way back in 2008 gives a good account of the Ember Day’s history, meaning and significance, particularly how today’s culture, so zealous for being good stewards of the earth, is missing the element of Supernatural Mysteries, which Ember Days embodies in the very nature of it’s liturgical meaning.

Help resurrect the pious observation of Ember Days, a tradition which goes back to the earliest times of the Church.

Fisheaters also has a good summary of Ember Days.

Further, Fr Bede wants you all to know that Ember Saturday will be celebrated at St Elizabeth in Cleveland at 9am. All of the readings will be read at the Mass. This is a good time to participate in our patriarcal history.

Saturday Latin Mass Pictures

As was posted before, Fr. Bede is now offering a Latin low Mass on the Saturdays of the month, EXCLUDING FIRST SATURDAY, at St. Elizabeth of Hungary church on Buckeye Road in Cleveland.

The Mass was celebrated at Mary's side altar. A good number of Faithful attended, and the newly ordained Canon Matthew Weaver assisted in choir, after which he celebrated his own private Mass. St. Elizabeth's is a beautiful church, as you can see in the pictures. It is a fitting environment for The Most Beautiful Thing This Side of Heaven.

Bede O.S.B. to transfer his Mass from the Monastery to the parish church in lieu of adequate space and accommodation for the faithful.  This move also offers an opportunity to train local clergy in the ancient rite and train grade school and high school youth in serving the Mass.  The church is on the Historical Record as the Mother Church for Hungarians in North East Ohio. There is also a Hungarian Museum on property and many other Hungarian cultural events. Spacious parking is available behind the church.
