Finally something newsworthy has happened in Niagra Falls.
Jesus has picked a predictable time and place to show his face in LaSalle.
Itâ€™s the way heâ€™s doing it thatâ€™s a little unusual.
â€œIt is unique,â€ said Deacon David Slish of St. John de LaSalle parish on Buffalo Avenue.
A number of parishioners at St. John have seen the face in a red altar cloth hung for Sundayâ€™s morning mass. By the time Monday rolled around, a crowd had rolled in.
â€œItâ€™s no miracle or anything like that,â€ Slish said. â€œItâ€™s just something that happened. But itâ€™s Holy Week so people will take that as a little significance of Christ in their life.â€
Two such people are Dottie Farrell and her husband, Joe, who live next door to the church and have belonged to it since the 1960s. After a Monday service, Slish turned on the lights and told people to look carefully at the altar cloth because people had seen the face of Jesus there the day before.
â€œWe went, â€˜Oh my gosh, yes,â€™ â€ Dottie said. â€œI knew what it was right away. Itâ€™s like a vision that heâ€™s there. I always tell everybody to behave themselves because heâ€™s there.â€
