<quoted text>What about a younger priest in the Falls buying a summer villa by the lake for 159,000 dollars with a swimming pool and wooden fence? Is that a good example also? Is that opulent? What would Pope Francis say about that?
The pope knows what he knows and thats all that he knows.

No need to be nasty and get personal. A pastor is supposed to stand with his people first. Where did you go to school CKS ?

Not so simple. He lead a double life for five years after his baby was born. Still wonder, with his vow of poverty, how did he provide for the little girl while still a priest and before he sold his first car. Anyone have the answer to that?

5oo K and the sale of Oakland place would be just enough to fix up St. Ann . It's not very much .
Who in the world needs another museum? There are some museums in the Falls! That is sufficient for now! St. Ann?

You sound like a friggin broken record.
Actully, you sound jealous.
You do not like to hear the truth what Pope Francis is asking. You are jealous since you cannot depart from your earthly possessions which captivated your imagination and your whole being. Buy a small car!

Actually you are correct.
While Fr. Anzelm was leading his double life, I went to confession to him and told him of how I was living (unmarried) with my significant other. He chided me and told me it was wrong and told me to be more generous (financially) to Corpus Christi for my penance.
Since finding out of his double life, I am no longer Catholic.
I also have stopped going to Church.
I have no use for these joker priests right now in my life.
Maybe someday I can return to Church, but it will take a while.

You can always look at it as simply fulfilling Scripture: "Do as I say and not as I do."

From our Holy Father, Pope Francis requests that all Catholics say a "Hail,Mary" at 2:00 pm EST for the situation in Ukraine.(Pres. Yanukovich is a sworn enemy of the Catholic church,. The Western part of Ukraine is solidly Catholic. Both Catholic and Orthodox hierarchs have denounced the violence.)

Fr. Chalupka is not the only one who left the priesthood either for a woman or for a man.

It is called having benefactors with deep pockets who provide in time of need.

You are just jealous that he never asked you to go for a ride and then have a go at it in the back seat of his car in some empty field in the glorious East Side Polonia.

St. Ann's is not a museum. It is a Roman Catholic Church and Shrine, and will remain as such according to the Vatican.

Who cares. This is all you keep repeating. The pope says---the bishop says the pope says-- the bishop says blah blah blah. At the end of the day the pope and bishop put their pants on the same way the rest of the world does.Get over your nonsense and go find another forum to bore.

That is not gossip, you fool! It is real that some priests have condos, summer houses, and apartments. Most people cannot afford that! Get your brain straight! Be honest!
