They are getting rid of all the fine but traditional looking churches in the diocese. But as soon as the artifacts go on sale the buzzards are circling, Why? To add to somebody's private collections?

Yes then we can all go to the very inspiring tool sheds in suburbia. That's all that Western New Yorkers understand and that's all they deserve. They get taken by the secular and religious leadership at every turn and don't even know it.

Hurray to the Buffalo Common Council for stopping the Vandals on their attack on St. Ann’s church! By preventing its demolition the City Fathers are showing leadership and care for our city and the vision and hope which the DOB does not have. Congratulations to our wise politicians!

Pope Francis recalled Archbishop Jozej Wesolowski from the Dominican Republic due to the child sex abuse. He was papal nuncio in that country. What a shame!The child sex abuse took plave in a villa Dolio. How many 'villas' our priests have here in Buffalo for their summer entertainment?

Why Sr. Regina's Office does not inform the new bishop about the necessity of closing more parishes across the diocese since it was promised six years ago? What is delay? You do not need Lay Administrators now! There are sufficient number of priests available in those parishes that should close right now!Act on it now!

Let's get rid of you and everyone like you. Leave the rest of us alone to take care of ourselves.

The faithful at St. Ann's deserve praise and respect for their knowledge and tenacity. All of you blabbermouths shut up and listen and pray for understanding and wisdom especially for our church leaders. It's sorely lacking.

You sound too nice. No amount of prayer will change our good shepherds. They have hardened their hearts around money.
They despise and deride the faithful who disagree with them. They show contempt for those who tell the truth. They mock those who work hard and are just. If you believe them you will always be disappointed. Call this The Psalm of the Diocese of Buffalo.

It is a pure information and nothing else that was reported by the BBC.

True. Money is the name of the game. The "faithful" are the least of their worries. MONEY is their main concern.

We/I have made great progress. However, MONEY is still the issue. I am not willing to wait even one more day. I know I have an advocate. If my advocate is not willing to press the necessary charges against those who withhold what is rightfully mine, I respectfully ask for another advocate. I ask the new advocate to involve the media in this, it is about time.

Those who oppose the DOB on church closings, or anything else, find the local media very accommodating. Their letters to the editor get printed, if they get a small group together a reporter will come over and give generous, favorable coverage.
Most letters to the editor by prolifers do not get printed. If there is a gathering, even a huge gathering of prolifers, the media will either ignore them, give it limited, negative coverage.

Pretty sure this would get more than an 'also ran' buddy.
