Fr. John Wilson of St. Paul Parish, Westerville will offer 3 days of Facebook live guided preparation on St. Paul’s Facebook page (@stpacc) starting Thursday, April 16 through Sunday, April 19 at 7PM daily.
Show the light and white for GOD!! During this difficult time, let us display white ribbons around our trees, lampposts and doors and place a light in our windows. By doing so we will remind others that Christ is the light of the world. He is the purity, truth, and hope that we long for. So let us boldly show others that God is not forgotten and display a white ribbon in our yards and a light in our windows. Let it be a holy reminder that we need you God and we love you God!
Both of these ideas were hatched locally.
“I offer you a simple suggestion and extend an invitation to participate in a gesture of hope.
Please consider placing a light in your window at night. You know the kind, the ones we see at Christmas time! That tradition started in the homes of the faithful who were deprived of the Holy Mass because of persecution. They would place a light in the window and would wait for a priest to visit. The traveling priests would know the homes of the faithful by the candle, the light, in the window.” – Fr. Stash Dailey.
The “white” idea came from one of our own board members, Lori Hamrock.

Bishop Robert J. Brennan is encouraging all of us to take this time during the Pandemic to pray regularly with our families. He’s also encouraging us to do something special for Easter, to enthrone our homes to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
All you need to perform the enthronement is downloadable from welcomehisheart.com. It’s simple to follow and it will be a special gift to your family.
Fr. Stash Daily talks about The Greatest Drama:
Jesus spoke to St. Maragaret Mary Alacoque and made these 12 promises for those who would respond to the pleading of His Heart and make an effort to return His love.
1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life. 2. I will establish peace in their homes. 3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions. 4. I will be their secure refuge during life, and above all, in death. 5. I will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings. 6. Sinners will find in My Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy. 7. Lukewarm souls shall become fervent. 8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection. 9. I will bless every place in which an image of My Heart is exposed
and honored. 10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts. 11. Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names
written in My Heart. 12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion
on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of
final perseverance; they shall not die in My disgrace, nor without
receiving their sacraments. My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
