When Pope Francis declared this a year of Mercy he challenged all of us to be more merciful. In East Palo Alto, one parish priest was looking for a way to celebrate this year but to also dedicate “24 hours to the Lord.”
Father Larry Goode had this idea swirling around in his head but wasn’t sure if his parish would be interested. He decided to bring it up at the parish council meeting one evening and was shocked by the response.
“They all loved it.”
