Don't you believe in the future? Are people investing in the City or Cheektowaga or Kensmore?
Well now. They are definitely not investing in the slums known as Niagara Falls are they?

Hopefully not, since St. Stan's area on Niagara Street is extremely dangerous in the Falls.

Pope Francis s asking all priests to sell their summer huts and give money to the poor. Follow Jesus! Get rid of your earthly possessions! Get rid of your expensive cars such as: Lincolns, Lexuses, Cadillacs, etc.

He needs to be disagreement. He needs to get out of his Palace on Oakland Place and serve his Diocese. He's a bishop not a queen.

Is closing of schools and where the money goes part of the oath of allegiance? How did all this become this Bishop's decisions He hasn't been here long enough. We all are supposed to obey the entrenched staff decisions . What a farce. The best thing this Bishop could do is fire everyone at 795 Main St.

Isn't the Bishop disagreeing with Rome? It's true . I heard it on TV. When does disagree become disobey? We need lots of cannons and lots of lawyers.

The Bishop gets to make ALL the rules. Learn to spell. What is being discussed is terrible. What you are speaking of is nonsense. My question: Shall everyone be dismissed in the name of order, power, and control?

jesuits promise to remain poor and not have any possessions or property. I do not believe that roman catholic priest take that vow.
