Please, what priest in his right mind wants to deal with a school in today's culture? LOL! LA PUMA will be fine and happy. Mind your manners Anonymous.....I have no time for your bull. Happy 4th all!
Mmmm......bigger question......what about Art Smith and the Bishop's new secretary?

We all recall the accusation that was made by him against Fr. Smith.

Was the Bishop's new secretary telling the truth about waking up and finding Father Smith in bed with him? Was he telling the truth that Father Smith was naked at the time?

Inquiring minds are waiting to see how this turns out.

Happy 4th ministering to the old folks at Brothers of Mercy!

Do many nice looking young boys come in to visit their elderly relatives????

For your sake, I hope so.

And just what qualifications does Ryazard have to be bishop's secretary? Apparently, it cannot be that demanding a position.

LiPuma for bishop! Highly unlikely. He doesn't have the require education and his reputation is not the best.

Bishop Kmiec has suggested to me that Pumer would be a great choice for a bishop. I'm still undecided, but I did want to get hm out. He so wants to be a bishop that I was afraid he'd go after my job. Thank goodness he will no longer be a threat. Yes, I knew of the financial struggles in Lewiston....that should keep him busy and unable to stick his nose in diocesan matters. I can wait for my new secretary and to hear that buzzing noise around the mansion. He may not work out and if so.....he will go back to his bees.

Did anyone notice that he was appointed for a term of 3 years as secretary?????? My own little way of making sure he is not a lifer like Pumer. Typically, they would never stay that long. Pumer must have been doing a lot and I mean a lot for Eddie K. But, he's too old for me.....I like mine much younger.

Dichotomy: A letter in the Buffalo News today is written by a dedicated Catholic against abortion. In July's WNY Catholic, Rep. Brian Higgins is prominently pictured and quoted in a story about Niagara University. He is in favor of unlimited abortion including Partial Birth Abortion. The Bishops ask the priests to tow the line, the arch/bishops then back-slap Cuomo and other extreme abortionists and are all smiles.

Secretaries of bishops don't become bishops in Buffalo - it has never happened. Most just get a nice parish. Just an aside - when Mansell wanted to get rid of Grosz and stop him from coming to the Chancery and acting like he had some responsibility in running the diocese, Mansell stuck him in a garbage can in Niagara Falls. LiPuma came out smelling better than Grosz with his Niagara County assignment.

LOL! You keep repeating yourself. Too bad no one else ever heard it. That guy was so non-descript, I do not even remember him being here.(Although I guess he was) Those foreigners are always trouble. Give it up!

Some things are worth repeating! Art, you remember him well. Here is a refresher: "I really cared a lot for him; I don't know what happened and why he has said these things." Remember saying that, Art!

Or perhaps they took out a threat and gave that scum a token of their appreciation? I could say things that most people do not know but this crap with Fr. is a sham. Fr.'s biggest prob? no street smarts. These wackos made him an easy target for their crap. I believe we once blogged about the stupidity of a 13 yr. old going to the little sem. Do not get me started!!!!!Happy 4th, Phil!
