I agree that everything possible should be done to save it, and maybe the DOB should have thought about this before if got so bad.
We have lost enough beauty in this beautiful city.
Where there is a will there is a way. Since when should we believe anything in the Buffalo News(that only writes what they are told by 795 Main St) And why would we believe anything or anybody that comes out of 795 Main St. They have their agenda for the church, maybe Christ and his mother and grandmother have a different one. Too bad today's Catholics have no appreciation for beauty or the truth.

Yes, the Buffalo News only writes what the Chancery tells them. Remember the clergy sex scandal about ten years ago at this time. No details really came out. Interestingly enough, there is a Jay Tokacz in the Buffalo News and a Sister Tokacz, CSSF the diocesan "rag". He in union echoes the magnificat at 795. If you read between the lines of his reportage, he knows what the story is about the three monsignors.((Whitney?)

The snakes in the temple of 795 Main St. have licked for too long the ears of Cassandra (a.k.a. Sr. Reggie), endowing her with the gift of prophecy. But the seduction of the gods will soon turn into a curse so that her predictions will no longer be believed.

If we listened to you, we'd be led astray!

St. Ann's needs work, but that report is not to be believed.

The DOB hires their cronies who they give a lot of work to and who they have in their pockets and tell them what end result they wish to achieve in the report. This is a PR move to make them look innocent.

I worked with them on a parish once and I was there when a particular unnamed engineer asked right out, "What do you want me to say in the report?" I thought Mike Arnold (diocesan henchman) was doing to turn into a fire hydrant, he turned so red. I don't think he expected the man to say this in front of all of us. Arnold then leaned over, held his pad to his mouth and the persons ear and said, "not here." I was right next to them and heard it as clear as a bell.

No, we are not the same. and eventually, people will realize I am right. They just don't have the humility to acknowledge my greatness. Yes, it is lonely, sitting at the top and realizing that everyone and everybody is going astray. but that is the story of my life. Keep reading my blogs, You will discover I am on to a lot.

Because the Oblates own the church
just as the Pauline Fathers own Corpus Christi.

Holy Angels is a High School run by the Grey Nuns. The poor dears put 1 million up to save the school but they are still losing it and their retirement. Doesn't seem right

I think this also is a problem, and why now at this time?
But, I think this group can do something. I think they can pull off something,and the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart GNSH are not afraid to think outside the box just like the people at St. Ann's.
These are two great groups of people in our Fair City/County.

It's a shame to lose another good school. Obviously the problems are all financial. Could they have merged with another private school? Did they not plan in time? How will we have vocations if there are no Catholic Schools?

There are plenty of snakes at the temple of 795 Main St. Nobody should believe what they say. All you have to do is look at their smiles and listen to their voices. There isn't an honest one among them.

Although I am sorry that HA is closing, when was the last time a girl from a Catholic school entered the convent? Also, many of the past ordinations were men who attended public school.

Accordding to statistic in our country s, more ordinations are coming
from Catholic schools than from public schools. However, these vocations usually come from immigrant communities. So, the difference must be, as always, true Catholic families.

If I remember, the snakes were helpful and provided a service to Cassandra. The DOB only has boa constrictors who want to squeeze the life out of anybody not playing on their team. Nobody is safe because eventually they will turn on eachother.

I think Maryland has covered the question of young men in the post after yours but you raise a valid point. Are there any young women entering the convent in the USA?
