Ha,Ha,Ha, At least I am still a priest. Wood, Littman and others are the real losers. No one who has left the priesthood,for whatever reason, deserves respect.

Actually,it would be just the opposite! Though you are NOT a priest and are only a wannabe, your comment reflects the attitude of priests. And that's why only low life and people who have no other choice still remain.

Like Mary, you are a liar who has difficulty keeping your lies straight.

That I believe because you have no life! The only life you have is to go on a blog like a gossiping old lady and pretending to be a religious person. Your comments do not reflect the Gospel, but fulfill your need to be part of an institution in which you did not get admitted to the higher levels. Now, you hide behind a screen and release your venom through a keyboard.

And just what makes you think I am not a priest. My frequent references to liturgy, Canon Law, Greek and Hebrew should have led you to the opposite conclusion. Mary is not a liar. She just has a different point of view. Sometimes, we agree and sometimes we don't.

Well you're wrong, I am. Anyway, it is worth noting that the DOB has provided the Episcopal church with so many priests.

What is THIS??????? Pick on Phil day. Reading these posts makes one believe instead of discussing the current issue, you are trying to get Phil to reveal info about himself. Be careful Phil, that nasty anonymous almost got me once.

Quit trying to make yourself sound credible. What is happening is the calling out names of people who are ancient history and fishing/hoping for gossip. That's not discussing "current issues" or even issues.

Phil is NOT a priest (I wish he was because he would fit in well -- he's a gossiping scum). Both Phil and Mary lie so much that they lose track of what they have written in the past.

Another successful Fathers Day collection! I'm happy to report that I robbed (I mean took in) close to $4,000. These people are real suckers. I give them about nine Masses - calling it a Fathers Day Novena - and charge about $400 for each Mass. I'm able to pocket the rest and as I go to the drive-through of the bank, you can be assured there's a big smirk on my dumb face. Its the best gimmick I have! And no, I am not going to give back to the parish anything for the air-conditioner and patio roof I destroyed when I opened my bedroom window and let the damn thing fall out and destroy the patio roof. The parish has enough money and I'm not going to reimburse them anything even if my lack of intelligence is to blame for this incident.
For those of you waiting for me to get out of the parish and make room for Peter Z. please be patient, I will be happy to go to Christians as soon as Richard gets out.(By that time many of your funds will be depleted anyway). I know you really want him and the staff is all praying that it happens as soon as possible before everyone from this place has left to join other parishes.
People who know me realize that I read this blog everyday. And of course it makes me very upset the way people mock and ridicule me. Its totally uncalled for and shows a lack of appreciation for my degree in psychology. But I must say there is one thing that upsets me even more than this blog: its when people say something nice about another priest whom I know. I turn green with envy and can't stand it when someone tells me something positive about another priest, especially someone who is my friend. Why am I like this, you might ask? Why do I have to fib and make up things about other people that aren't necessarily true? If I were to psychoanalyze myself, you might think that its a lack of self-esteem and so I have to compensate for the inability to appreciate myself as much as I should. But having been the only child in my home, I certainly had a lot of attention. Well, apparently, I can never have too much attention. The point I am trying to say, is never say anything positive about someone I know! May God love you and Mary bless you!(whatever that means).

Priests' pensions in the Philadelphia Archdiocese are in trouble. What about priests' pensions in the DOB?

Why did Fr. Sebastian Pierro from Lewiston resigned from his parish so suddenly and unexpectedly? Is this going to happen to the 'illustrious one' in the Falls in the near future? Does anybody know anything about that? Any 'divas' involved with that???
First of all let me say the Father Piero was a wonderful priest and is missed by many of his parish.
He left St Peter's parish after an ineffective partial knee replacement and the death of his beloved father. he needed to take a leave of absence to focus on his own health. You cannot run a parish that way.
After he went back to work as an associate in another larger parish and is dong well.
Be careful what you say since you don't reallyl know what is going on.!?!

Still just saying anything to fill your lonely day. Even if there is not a problem, you would enjoy if people were dumb enough to care. Get a life! Don't you realize that other than your other self, nobody cares or responds to you.

My dear parishioners,
I was deeply disturbed by the recent article in "The Buffalo News" regarding St. Anthony's and their new museum. Even more disturbing, is the fact that "The Buffalo News" also did a video interviewing the pastor there and the museum curator. Here at Gualberto, we have actual relics of saints, not mere dusty old fiddle back vestments. When I contacted the media to bring attention to "our" relics (ours when there is a cost - mine in all other instances), they weren't interested. Apparently, I may have called too much in the past and they now feel I am just using these relics to draw attention to myself.

I wish to remind you that these fiddle backs are of no comparison to the relic of the "true veil of Mary" which I have in MY collection. You may recall that I mentioned that many years ago, I invited Mary to join me in the Falls (the Church next to the casino) for cocktails. When Mary took off her veil, I excused myself to hang it up for her. At that time, I snipped a piece of it off for my collection. So you see, there is no problem in authenticating that this veil is truly from Mary as you have MY word. In fact, when Mary discovered what I did she became upset and sent a letter to the Bishop. Apparently, she "claims" she had just bought the veil at J.C. Penney's and that I put a big hole in it. If she thought I was going to pay for it, she was sadly mistaken. AS do you, if you think I am going to pay for the damage I have done with the air conditioner.

At any rate, I know Monsignor Voorhees was once assigned to our parish. Some of you may feel compelled to visit this museum of his. As your pastor and shepherd of your soul, I forbid any of you from visiting this museum. I can only compare it to visiting a protestant church that doesn't have the Blessed Sacrament, when we have the Blessed Sacrament right here in our church which was consecrated by ME. Our loyalty must be to MY relic collection and I urge all of you to write to the media and tell them they should write an article on ME and MY relic collection.

OUR collection is permanent to our church here. At least it is as permanent to this church as it was to St. Mary's when it was there. You see, though I told them it was permanent and used their money for it, I still took it one day when they weren't aware of it. After all, it was on loan. Permanent only means I won't move it as long as I am there and that they should pay for any costs. However, God punished me and I had the same thing that I did later done to me. As a result of what I did, that darn LaVerne came here and took the baptismal font, angel statues, other statues and a priceless Nativity Set that I had my eye on to confiscate for myself. MMM, I guess I shouldn't have crossed Mary and snipped that piece of the true veil. I've been paying for it ever since and I think that is why I am under appreciated here and in the Diocese.

So, STAY AWAY FROM THIS MUSEUM AND WRITE THE MEDIA ABOUT OUR OWN COLLECTION AND BE SURE TO MENTION MY NAME AND THAT I HAVE A PhD.

May God bless you and Mary love you!
