About 16,000 cases of sexual abuse in the military were reported in 2012, a 35 percent surge in the past 2 years. The New York Times estimated that "fewer than 15 percent of sexual assaults ... are ever reported" and "fewer than 1 percent resulted in a court-martial conviction."
On the other hand, 8 cases of abuse of minors by the clergy were reported in 2011. The media do not care for these statistics.

The cost of Ryszard's holy honey has just sky-rocketed. The soon-to-be Bishop's Secretary will now have Malone bless the bottles of honey, making them double holy. Malone expects a portion of the prophets.
Really?

JPII was no saint!!!!!!! He was a nasty old man who did a lot to harm the Church. The Poles adore him because he is Polish...that's his claim to fame.
JPII was a real saint not like you,goofy and nasty individual.

I find your post interesting but you seem new. If you do not know, I will spell it out....No one says anything about Padre Arturo. Thank you.
Mary is Art and it sounds like you hurt her feelings.

P.S. Mary and Phil are the same person. Just an FYI!

FYI, Phil and Mary are not same person But Art, myself and Mary as the same church, that's an interesting thought. It is likely to be one of the more intelligent parishes in the DOB. And I can also serve as sacramental minister.

Why would Eddie Grosz spend 4 million dollars to renovate Saint Stanislaus? For goodness sakes, I have been there...it is a dump! JohnXXIII saved the church and Francis will bring it all home. The days of Fulton Sheen and the rest are gone. You can scream, but I am not sure anyone is listening. Certainly, not the kids!
Although I do not agree with the excessive spending associated with the renovations of St. Stans, I must say that it certainly is not a dump.......Quite overdone and unfortunately moved the altar to the center of the church but that does not mean it is a dump.

Bishop Malone: Please read these words of Pope Francis and think about them:

Slander destroys God's work because it is spawned by hatred. It is a daughter of the “father of lies” and wants to wipe out man and distance him from God.“Slander is a little breeze”, Basilio sings in the Barber of Seville; for Pope Francis it is a strong gale. He said so on Monday morning, 15 April, at the Mass he celebrated at Domus Sanctae Marthae.
Slander is as old as the world and is mentioned in the Old Testament. When they cannot obtain something “in the right way, in a holy way”, people have recourse to slander which destroys.“This reminds us”, the Pope commented, that “we are sinners: all of us. We have sinned. But slander is something else”. It is a sin but also something more, for “it wants to destroy God's work and is spawned by something very nasty... by hatred. And the person who generates hatred is Satan”. Falsehood and slander go hand in hand.
