Sounds like you're looking for some juicy gossip about your fellow priests. Maybe you can give up this sin - inordinate curiosity about the lives of other priests - for Lent.

Let's get up close and personal when we are afraid to tackle the serious issues. It makes the powers guys very happy so they can destroy the ones that are doing a good job.

Fr. Art Smith has some medical difficulties, while Msgr. Gallivan is vacationing in Florida. Is this now satisfying your enormous curiosity?

Fr. Paul Seil looks like he does not need more food. His cooking supplies all he needs for his famous kitchen.

TRANSPARENCY - The U.S. under President Obama, who once promised to run the “most transparent” administration in the country’s history, fell from 32nd to 46th in the 2014 World Press Freedom Index, a drop of 13 slots.
Talking about transparency in the Vatican…
We have as much " faith and trust " in the US and US dollar as we do in the Vatican.

One company has estimated the cost for stabilization at 10% of that amount. Besides, a few years ago, soon after the Jesuits left St. Ann’s, parishioners wanted to start a fundraising for the restoration of the Church . Bishop Kmiec told them in writing not to.
We all know that everything possible will be done to undermine the faithful who are trying to keep churches open. It starts with ignoring their wishes, then neglect, snuff the life and spirit out of them and finally hope that they get tired or drop dead.

Has anyone ever worked with St. Anne's people? They're a bad circus with no one capable of mounting an effort to raise money. They have let the church rot for the last twenty years. Clowns!

Have you been paying the bills and the lawyers for the last 10 years ? If you are such an Einstein -- it's not too late to prove yourself , if not, just simply shut at least one of the holes in your head. You should pick up an issue of the Western New York Heritage Magazine , if you can afford one, and educate yourself.

The truth hurts apparently. You can blame the Bishop all you want or the Buffalo Diocese. The fact remains YOU let the church fall apart around you with not plan to fix or restore major structural problems to the church. Let me suggest that those hands you have been sitting on for years doing nothing to save this church need to come out from under your collective butts and work towards achieving something more than selling pretty calendars and overpriced oranges as a means to raise money. This message comes from multiple holes in my head leaking a more educated and intellectual view than you have. God even blesses the fools.

There are few things I care about in life but going after the dear Msgr. is one. Leave him alone. He may ask whatever he would like to ask.
