Never mind last night----gossip, gossip, gossip at Corpus Christi this morning.
Should we gossip about the gossipers? What would that make us? And how do you know. Are you a stalker or voyeur?

I would like to know why the powers that be are so set on doing in St. Ann's Church. Can't they just leave them be and let them figure out how to do repairs and pay their bills. Why be so mean and nasty? Is that to insure they will never go to church again anywhere? What up with that??

Neither!
I just want to worship in peace, and experience Eucharist in a healthy environment for me and my family.
Corpus Christi is a great place, and has good worship. The gossip just gets in the way.

WHO IS COVERING UP WHAT? In Oregon, Bishop Liam Cary suspended Fr. James Radloff as pastor assigning him to another parish. The bishop praised Radloff for his hard work and accomplishments and declared that he remains a priest in good standing and did nothing illegal. The priest then sued his bishop with the Vatican to find the reasons for his removal. When media broke the case, the Bishop suspended the priest from his the reassignment claiming confidentiality. Worse than the Inquisition: at least Galileo had the chance to appear in court and we still have the minutes of that trial.

Daughter of Anzelm, we have not heard from you recently. Any words of wisdom, or should we wait for the holidays?

Why are you listening?? Gossip is a two way activity. The one spouting, and the one receiving. You do not have to be either one unless YOU choose to be. Gossip is a sin, it's against the commandment..Blame yourself. Do some work of service and you will find the right people to be friendly with. So far you have not looked for the right people . Seek them and you will find them. Look for the mouths that are smiling not flapping.

I (we)do not listen, I (we)walk away. They try to gossip to my children and I have shown them to walk away. They think we (everyone) wants to hear it. it has become common fair at that Church.
That is the norm at Corpus Christi.
I think you are right, we will look for another parish with other interests beside gossip.
Thanks!

Look for Christ and me in other places. Corpus Christi is not a house of God or Christ. It is a house of hate, lies, and gossip.

When I was born, Corpus Christi should have embraced the new Christi child. The Daughter of Anzelm and Catherine. God my Father sees the evil there.

I think you are all full of yourselves and baloney. You are simply not that important. Life will go on without you as it should.

Excuses , excuses, excuses? You think other places are different? only because you don't know them. Corpus Christi has the best music and the best homilies if you are smart enough to understand them. If you are so mean you should leave and don't let the doors hit you on the way out. I go to that church and nobody bothers me and I don't bother anybody either. The only news I care about on Sunday is the Gospel, otherwise I stay home.

Best music? The current organist Istvan Crapnik is a pompous no talent hack. Homilies? You are kidding right? Rev. Kreis is just into himself and Rev. Maridouche is just plain creepy.

This blog used to be more interesting. Where are all the devil's mouthpieces hiding? Are you scared to face me the Christ daughter of God? Are scared that I will see your soul pocked with the leprosy of your sins?

The pipe organ is a musical instrument commonly used in churches or cathedrals that produces sound by driving pressurized air (called wind) through pipes selected via a keyboard. Because each organ pipe produces a single pitch, the pipes are provided in sets called ranks, each of which has a common timbre and volume throughout the keyboard compass. Most organs have multiple ranks of pipes of differing timbre, pitch and loudness that the player can employ singly or in combination through the use of controls called stops.
A pipe organ has one or more keyboards (called manuals) played by the hands, and a pedalboard played by the feet, each of which has its own group of stops. The organ's continuous supply of wind allows it to sustain notes for as long as the corresponding keys are depressed, unlike the piano and harpsichord whose sound begins to decay immediately after attack. The smallest portable pipe organs may have only one or two dozen pipes and one manual; the largest may have over 20,000 pipes and seven manuals.[2] A list of the some of the most notable and largest pipe organs in the world can be viewed at List of pipe organs.
The origins of the pipe organ can be traced back to the hydraulis in Ancient Greece in the 3rd century BC,[3] in which the wind supply was created with water pressure. By the 6th or 7th century AD, bellows were used to supply organs with wind.[3] Beginning in the 12th century, the organ began to evolve into a complex instrument capable of producing different timbres. By the 17th century, most of the sounds available on the modern classical organ had been developed.[4] From that time, the pipe organ was the most complex man-made device,[5] a distinction it retained until it was displaced by the telephone exchange in the late 19th century.[6]
Pipe organs are installed in churches, synagogues, concert halls, and other public buildings and are used for the performance of classical music, sacred music, and secular music. In the early 20th century, pipe organs were installed in theaters to accompany films during the silent movie era, in municipal auditoria, where orchestral transcriptions were popular, and in the homes of the wealthy, equipped with player mechanisms.[7] The beginning of the 21st century has seen a resurgence in installations in concert halls. The organ boasts a substantial repertoire, which spans over 400 years.[

TOO BAD SO MANY HAVE BEEN DISMATLED AND THROWN OUT OR SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. IN HONOR OF THE GREAT DECISION MAKERS OF THEIR DAY. JUST AS THEY WISH TO DO TODAY WITH THE BEST PLACES THE CHURCH HAS EVER BUILT. WHAT CAN WE SAY ABOUT OUR LEADERS NOW??

He can't sing in polish and ruins the meaning of every hymn with pointless improvisation. Its quite amusing at times. However most of the time pathetic. But that's the kind if crap you get these days. Its only a matter of time before cc closes.
