I'm simply asking for some input on this matter. If that makes me nuts, so be it.

Send your mass offerings to the missions around the world. I wouldn't give these locals a dime. The only thing they pray for is to close churches and go on trips.

Funny you should mention trips. Our pastor is leaving for his annual group pilgrimage to Europe shortly after All Souls Day.

Yes, they should close more churches in Dunkirk, Lackawanna, Buffalo, Batavia, and Niagara Falls, the sooner the better and the bishop will have sufficient extra number of priests which are not needed in almost half-empty churches in those areas.

All these priest are flocking to Rome, for what? For pilgrimage, or for personal reasons? They even sleep in the same bed on those trips.What goes on under the bedsheets?

Are these priests going to report to the Pope what kind of summer villas they have? Swimmingpool. Wooden fence. And what else?

Where do they get money for those summer villas these priests? From collection? from gas money? from rectory table money? or something else?

Another pilgrimage to Italy in Feb. with the famous NF pastor. They love those "pilgrimages" (in other words, free vacations).

Our pastor is not going with other priests. Each year he drums up a group of people to go somewhere different. Nothing like seeing the world on someone else's dime, I guess. Although doing this every single year seems a tad excessive.

No, they only get extra money for living expenses. i.e. good living. Ask Freddy.

Why do you need more priests in the burbs? To do what? They have so much staff they don't know what to do with themselves now.
They should be spreading the Gospel where the Gospel is needed not just be caretakers for the rich. If they are so busy why do they have so much free time. There are plenty of people who need to be taught the faith in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Two of the poorest cities in all of USA. I would suggest pilgrimages to those poor areas instead of only visiting the casinos and bars.

Besides casinos and bars, you forgot the famous summer villas by the lakes which are most of the time 'secret sex houses.'

Even sex requires ambition, drive and some effort. Some are too lazy even for that.

Why do you want to know? What business is it of yours?
What goes on in one's bedroom should stay in their bedroom.

Perhaps you would like to join in under those bedsheets?
Take pictures, videos.......?
