Fathere Ted complaining money is tight at St. Stan's. People need to give more to keep things going or it will close up for masses.
What's that about? There are a lot of churches that are getting a lot less money. Think it is serious or just an idle threat???

Questions to ponder:
Will the Vatican scrutiny of the nuns be lifted? What will be the final outcome?

Will some people still be willing to work in Catholic facilities when they may be dismissed without compensation due to a judgement of immoral conduct?

Should parishes lose their tax exempt status when they preach politics from the pulpit?

CLOSE IT.
They closed my Historic Church in NT (Ascension) with 900 families, and many parish ministries.
There were 3 full Masses there every weekend, 24h adoration and so much more.

What was good for us, is good for them.

Did all the people in your historic church have the same Christian
"they did it to me so I hope they do it to you" attitude?

Who do you think? I'm guessing DM pastor. Possibility? This possibility was rumored many months ago.

Does Reggie still have the final say? Is she as powerful under Malone as she was under Kmiec?

If he heads out to Ransomville,(perfect-close to lake hut), who will take over in NF? Anyone interested in DM or St. Mary's? Or.. will one close if pastor leaves. Ah....so many questions, possibilities, theories .... only Reggie knows for sure.

I don't think many would be clamoring to come to NF -- not exactly a hot spot in the diocese.

Close DM in the Falls together with Mount Carmel and St. John de la Salle.St. Mary's needs only 2 masses, and basta.

Sorry to upset you but being gay is not normal in any part of the animal kingdom, not even the Catholic. You may protest all you want and have as many laws and so called "rights" in your favor as you want. The fact that you are always seeking acceptance proves YOUR sense of inferiority. You should know that you can not legislate acceptance. And you can not legislate acceptance of your life style by people who think you are wrong. It has nothing to do with what century we live in. I for one DO NOT wish to be accepted because of my sexual orientation, east or west,north or south. THAT would be truly demeaning.
"The fact that you are always seeking acceptance proves YOUR sense of inferiority."

So according to your senseless and unintelligent sense of reasoning, anyone or group of people who seek acceptance proves their sense of inferiority. OK - GOT IT!
Therefore (according to you), black people, Asians, Hispanics, handicapped people, or anyone different from yourself, who all at some time or other seek to be accepted, are inferior?!?!?
HAHAHA! You're laughable!!
Actually, I think you're a BIGOT!

Tell me: What do all of the offenders have in common that I would be biggoted against them? I don't know who they all are; I don't know what they ALL have in common. As far as I know, they are male AND female, gay AND straight, coming from various walks of life, probably various ethnicities. How could I be bigotted against them ALL? THEY ARE all criminals who have no regard for the feelings of another but ALL must have a serious sense of entitlement that made them think they could do these things to another person and get away with it. That is what they seem to have in common. Does that make me a bigot because I have called them on it? Who are really the bigots here?

Seil has said he would like to go back to the City sometime and mentioned St. Mary's in the Falls specifically(?). It's an historic church and someone would probably go there; except you get DM too.
