I don't know what you're talking about, but I was there for the Canisus College Chorale concert a few weeks ago, and also the Ludowa Nuto concert last week.

I'm not a parishioner there, but I went to mass before the concerts and then stayed for the concerts.

I found everyone to be very inviting, kind and filled with a very healthy and holy spirit.

I'm not sure, but it sounds like you have a grudge with Polish people, and maybe not the church.
Tank you for tell it dat troot.

How you make it friend from Polish peoples if you make it joke by dem? I half lot friend watts Polish girls. We half it lot fun.

Your silence is deafening! Looks like we struck a nerve.

He is resting, and giving a good advise to Pope Francis to tell all priests to sell their houses and summer villas and give to the poor.

I have no idea. Is it the casino church? Is it the former Holy Trinity in the Falls? What is it? My guess is, it is the later and it was paid for with ill-gotten gains and that I should have just a wee bit M O R E charity and empathy and forgive he-who-embezzles-from-me just one stinking more time. Well, don't they say 'Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me'? I have things that I would like to (have)own and today would be a good day to (have)own them or the charity that I am desperately trying to conjure up in my captive little mind might turn just 'a wee bit' ugly.
In other words, today is a good day for finalizing everything....not tomorrow, not the next day. Today.

Oh, and by-the-way, my charitable side will not return until 100% of my 'justice' has been realized. Not 80%.....but 100% within 5 days of today. I have lost my faith in.....this. Please help me to find it.

FYI: this/that completes ALL acts of charity that I am going to bestow on my most despicable tormentors. Any other acts of charity on my part will be done, by me, after I have realized what I have asked for/deserve. Don't bother asking.

I was there-it was just a big, big show. A performance just like the AmPol eagle said. No focus on the Mass or Eucharist.
Polish People are Nasty!
At least at Corpus Christi.

Actually, let me elaborate. The Church that My immediate family went to for the last 11 years was closed and we were searching for a Parish to join. We thought maybe returning to the Church of my childhood years might be the solution. It is not. My parents continued going to Corpus Christi until they died, but it has changed-not for the better. I really do not think I an a dolt for trying to find a place to worship, and a place that respects liturgy.
Fancy clothes, Fancy language, Fancy music does not a healthy liturgy make.

You are very fortunate that the only nasty people you have found are Polish and at Corpus Christi. That makes it easy to avoid them. I find them everywhere in the Catholic church and they come in all color, shapes and sizes and ethnic groups. You probably think you're nice and that scares me.

No matter what you want to say against Corpus Christi, it is not fair to say anything about the liturgy. You do not find much better anywhere not even at the Latin Masses anymore since nobody knows what they are doing in Latin or English in the new or the old. If you have a problem whith your old friends too bad for you but don't take it out on the priests. Fancy clothes? Hardly, Fancy Language? with a Polish accent? Fancy music? Do you prefer guitar?
You should learn some Polish , it might make you a better Catholic.
