Many, if not most alternative worship sites will be closed in the next round of closures, plus some parishes will be shut outright. You can this expect pattern to continue for maybe another ten years. Priests are getting older and few and you simply can't expect them to carry on as they were in their younger years. Also, even at large attendance masses, the churches tend to be only 1/3rd full.
Hopefully, the bishop acts on it now!

Fr. Joseph Badding is retiring officially at the end of September 2013. Perhaps, Jacek can go there to be closer to his 'Polish Palazzo, in Ramsonville. Convient?

Perfect fit. Did he apply for the Ransomville parish?

There is nobody in Buffalo who speaks good Italian. Leave the language alone. You will never be as good as the Polish.

Will Kmiec be celebrating the Mass of Christian Burial assisted by LiPuma or will they be barred from attending by Fr. Bartnik's family like Malone and LiPuma were from Father Joe Moreno's funeral?

<quoted text>Yes,, some of the alternative parish sites in the Falls should be closed immediately. No need for all those priests running around aimlessly for few parishioners at DM, Mount Carmel, St. Joseph, St. Mary, etc. Close it down and you will have 2 extra priests: Jacek and Klizek.
I do not believe that the priests are overworked or underfed.

From 'priestly palazzo' in Ransomville to the smallest hut in the South, priests are not as busy as they claim to be.

Buffalonians are very complacent people. Ask anyone who comes to live here or tries to do business here, to change or even suggest anything different, he is met with the mantra:“But this is Buffalo!” It may not be the best place on earth, but we are happy the way we are and with the leaders we have. Freud argued that the leadership occurs because a group of people — the followers — have replaced their own narcissistic tendencies with those of the leaders, such that their love for the leaders is a disguised form of self-love. "Another person's narcissism", he said, "has a great attraction for those who have renounced part of their own... as if we envied them for maintaining a blissful state of mind." Even frogs croak happily in a muddy pond.
This is the best post on this blog in a long time. But it's very scary what you say. I feel like I'm in a muddy pond all the time and with a lot of other people except we are not happy.

According to the Houston’s Children’s Assessment Center, 500,000 babies born in the United States this year will likely be sexually abused before they turn 18. SNAP, where are thou?

It can be difficult for me to understand the Polish accent but you are a heck of a lot brighter than most think, especially when you do not swear. But that was not my point. I am old enough to remember when both Elma and East Aurora were populated by hard working people with Eastern European roots. Thanks for reminding me.

Father Jim certainly made life miserable for the DRE! "I am the pastor" was his mantra with everyone. People were more worried about his strange relationships with the boys in one family. He never seemed interested in the girl members of the family.
RIP father Jim!! Your in a better place!!

Why did Jacob at first use Hamburg Connection instead of his name? He must not have had the courage to use his real name. Jacob was always the self righteous one. Did you ever hear him talk about religion? He's from another planet!

What's the point of all these personal attacks that amount to nothing. None of us can judge and who cares. There are more important issues and problems to solve...like why aren't there enough good people to choose Bishops. Why do we have to have an absentee Bishop.
