Rev. Joseph Hilinski, Pastor of St Barbara Church thanked the two workers from Cleveland Public Power who helped restore power at the Church. The service was delayed for hour as the workers fixed the problem. Fr. Hilinski thanked just canonized Pope John Paul II for sending these "two angels" and told of the good people working for the City.



The musical group Diaconal from Columbus performed the Responsorial Hymn after the first Epistle.

In his sermon on the Sunday when Popes John XXIII and John Paul II were canonized, Rev. Joseph Hilinski, Pastor of St Barbara Church at 1505 Denison in Cleveland told 3 important things about the Saints. First, they had the same spiritual equipment as we do. Second, the context of their lives - World Wars I and II, the Nazis and Communism. Third was the physical end to their lives - painful stomach cancer and Parkinson's disease. They were just like us and what was available to them is available to us.
