Radio Program

  • Every Sunday at 10a.m. to 11a.m. (CT) WSHO Sonshine 800 AM. You can  also LISTEN to the program via the Internet at WWW.WSHO.COM, a Christian station.  


WSHO Radio is sad to inform our listeners of the recent passing of Gayle Ponseti, the host of the MARY’S HELPERS NEWS PROGRAM. A True West Banker born in Algiers in 1937, Gayle was the mother of four children and had a strong sense of family which was the guiding purpose of her early life. Beginning in the 1980s she committed her focus to the service group, Mary’s Helpers, where she served as a valiant crusader for Christ until her recent death. Over the years with the organization she led a number of pilgrimages to Medjugorje and other international sacred sites in Europe and elsewhere eventually succeeding the late Margaret Trosclair as director.

WSHO listeners will know her as the weekly host on the Mary’s Helpers News Program, an hour of news and interviews airing on Sundays at 10:00am, which kept them informed of activities in the surrounding area through which they could exercise, energize and renew their faith.

THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY IS DEDICATED to The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as the model of virtue of all Christian households.

 

The Holy Family Prayer

 

JESUS, Son of God and Son of Mary, bless our family. Graciously inspire in us the unity, peace, and mutual love that you found in your own family in the little town of Nazareth.


MARY, Mother of Jesus and Our Mother, nourish our family with your faith and your love. Keep us close to your Son, Jesus, in all our sorrows and joys.


JOSEPH, Foster-father to Jesus, guardian and spouse of Mary, keep our family safe from harm. Help us in all times of discouragement or anxiety.


HOLY FAMILY OF NAZARETH, make our family one with you. Help us to be instruments of peace. Grant that love, strengthened by grace, may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trials through which our families sometimes pass. May we always have God at the center of our hearts and homes until we are all one family, happy and at peace in our true home with you. Amen.
