Is $7 enough to charge for a funeral in the Falls?
This fee will buy a summer hut in Hamburg, Wheatfield, Swormville, Florida, Ransomville, etc. Be content until you pay off your hiding place! Get 'the casino chips', and pay off your due to the bank!

Why are you so jealous of my lake estate, my car, my friends. What kind of religious would be so pathetic as to covet someone else's possessions. Do as Francis says and be accepting of others and keep doing your job as chief diocesan loincloth.

Pope Francis is not fond of private property for priests. Sell your property and give to the poor.

Then why does'nt he contact private property owners personally instead of going through the diocesan loincloth if the message is of great importance.Can you answer that truthfully.

In Rome there are dozens of churches, large and small, with less than 50 people attending mass on Sunday, but they are still open. Vatican II did not say that the only religious activity in church is the mass.

Personally, Pope Francis cannot call you and tell you how to be a good priest and sell your private summer hut and give to the poor. You apparently need a constant reminder to sell your private property, and detach yourself from material possessions.

What purpose would that serve Ivan. We know you're a jealous collar. Go to confession. Your penance should be a weeks worth of poop pickup for the bishops dog. You must stay off your computer for a month You must wera Morman undergarments for a month.Period.
