More than food pantries, the Church needs to offer the poor a good education. Many religious orders were founded for this.
Somehow, down the line, the Church has lost this priority fostering a society of haves and have nots. Francesco is now shaking up the Church’s priorities.
Francesco says, sell your property and give to the poor. stop perching yourself in the fourstory building by yourself like an Owl starring at the empty parking lots.

Vatican made the final decision about the schools, and supported the local bishop and his authority n matter pertaining to the diocesan decisions about which schools and churches should close.This matter is now closed!

Does the Pope say 7 masses every weekend? Does the Canon Law allow this for a parish curate?

Aren't you the one who said that it was the parishioner's fault everything that has and is happening? I am amused by the clergy that is too afraid to stand up for the rights of their flock and are always making side deals on what suits them best. People should make more noise and never go down quietly. Eventually someone will die and be replaced by a Father Baker. Has the best / worst Bishop of Buffalo award been given yet? There are always so many here since once they come they never leave can't they put their heads together
and come up with something new instead of the same tired , mean ,destructive plans?
Yes, it is the fault of the people of the parish. 100 kids DOES NOT make a school. Are you telling me that their are only 100 kids in each of these parishes. I doubt it. The priests have a responsibility to the bishop to tend the flock, not be bullied by it. The rest of your post is hard to understand except the Fr. Baker crack. Leave him alone.
