Vladimir Putin knows his catechism better than the JF&G people. A friend of mine told me that in Moscow the Communist government is restoring churches where masses are offered also in Spanish, Polish, French and Italian.
shame on them

The Bishop travels from Portland, Maine to Buffalo. It's probably more miles than between Youngstown and Lewiston. Oh, our priests are soooo overworked.

Only one. Did Putin rebuild all the churches that Stalin and communist murderers demolished during their 70 years of rule? Close more churches here in Buffalo Diocese.

Friends familiar with the situation in Moscow tell me that there are now 8 cat5holic churches in Moscow, serving the Latin, Byzantine, and Armenian and ritual churches. There are now about 600 Orthodox places of worship in Moscow, as opposed to 48 before 1990. St Catherine of Alexandria parish serve English speaking Orthodox in Moscow.

Maybe a little persecution will help revive the Catholic faith in America also.

Are you that for real dumb that you don't know when something is a joke. If this blog is mostly clergy it's very sad. You don't have the least bit of understanding of what is being written. The only thing on your mind is vicious gossip and how to screw the parishes and the parishioners out of their money so you will have more for retirement. Shame on you.

What are you talking about? Once a church is demolished it's lost forever. Just like when a person is dead . No matter how he died he is still dead. Are the Diocesan wrecking balls so much more dignified or justified? The results are the same except that nobody rebuids.

Usually, the Commies did not demolish their churches but only toppled the steeple, melting the bells into cannons. Once the churches were silenced and worship ceased - they thought - their atheistic political agenda would prevail. It did not. Russian people remained religious people at heart.

When the issues become too complicated nobody has anything to say.
Making up lies and distorting the truth is much easier. That 8th commandment can be pretty sticky.
