He can't sing in polish and ruins the meaning of every hymn with pointless improvisation. Its quite amusing at times. However most of the time pathetic. But that's the kind if crap you get these days. Its only a matter of time before cc closes.
Very sad at CC
Music is poor!

Do you prefer the today crap or the 70's and 80's crap. It all made money from copyrights. How about the guitars? Do you like those?
If bad music and bad preaching would be the standard every church would have to close immediately and do us all a favor. There are people who actually like those eagles wings---a grave mortal sin.

Haven't been there in years. Wow what a change for the worse.
What ever happened to that handsome priest from Poland?
he was quite a singer, better than the one they have now.
I was disappointed.
it is almost "cheap polish" now. I did not hear any famous organ or organist at Corpus Christi.

Personally, I would always save buildings rather than people. People, clergy, nuns, bishops the faithful come and go. buildings can last forever. Look at the fragments of the wailing wall.
It's not good that there is a reminder. It should have been like Buffalo. Eliminate everything so there will be no memory of St. Barbara and any of the people who built it. But make sure that there is a portraite of the Bishop who demolished it on the wailing wall of 795 Main St. He must be proud of being the first and only great Polish Bishop!
More churches should be closed in Buffalo, Lackawanna, Batavia, Niagara Falls, etc. The sooner the better since some parishes are simply surviving instead of thriving.

I doubt that the story about Gatto is true. Does he have the qualifications to be a seminary rector. but then remember who used to be spiritual director at SJV/CTK? Yes. John Aurelio, who liked to share "grass" and have sex with underage boys. And lived with his lover Bernie Mach, near the seminary. His name is now on bishopaccountablity.org .

Some are located in dangerous neighborhoods. Not safe for parishioners.

Hot off the Net!!!."Vanity Fair" has an article on the gay sub-culture in the Vatican. It can be read "in toto" on Rocco Palmo's "Whispers in the Loggia." Don't miss it.

Now, if some of you guys would come up with an article o the gay "sub-culture" in the Diocese of Buffalo, I just wonder what people would be able to disclose or hint at. For starter, the murder to Msgr. O'Connor, the mysterious "retirement of certain monsignors, the case of Spielman (further accusations have emerged about him), Aurelio, Ingalls, That is just the ones we know about. Who is the chancery has a fondness for alcohol and "porno", which was known, even in his seminary day?

Just like many people , surviving not thriving. Should we get rid of them too or try to help them? I say get rid of them especially if they are mean and useless but that wouldn't be very nice or Christian.

Far be it from me to disagree with you Msgr. but I must. Just because a person is gay does not mean they are a pedophile. Lumping those molesters in with gay people is not only incorrect but mean. However, I think you know that.
You have been inquiring about when the sem would be closing. With Gatto at the helm, it should not be long.

Yes, Mary, I am quite well aware that most gays are not pedophiles. I am sorry I did not make the distinction clearer Some on should put together something on the gay stranglehold at 795 and also in other chanceries. Buffalo is just a microcosmic reflection at what is reportedly occurring in the Vatican and also in the Jesuit order.

The “new” cathedral was demolished. Its furnishings were sold by the wreckers in partial payment for the $250,000 incurred in razing the structure. An apartment complex was erected on the site.
The faithful returned to the smaller cathedral close to downtown. It had been a mere 61 years since the Bishop left that seat.

The fifth version of the Gettysburg address, which was signed and dated by Lincoln, was considered the ‘final’ version and included ‘under God’ in its last sentence.” Recently President Obama omitted it. Oh, America the beautiful…

But 80% of the pedophile priests are gay. How many times do we have to repeat this statistic. No use ignoring it just because it's abhorrent. And what is this " sub culture" It is THE culture. Nobody is even trying to cover it up. They are proud to be the devil in disguise.
