Oh well...Father David Glassmire's partying at his Amherst pad continues tonite....St. Patty's day party and the "Boytoy" as the first to arrive....and he will most likely spend the night. I thought the bishop was aware of this priest continuing a gay relationship with his "Boy Toy"....is the bishop allowing him to maintain a gay relationship and continue as a priest in Batavia? Poor parishioners of Batavia and poor Amherst neighbors. And i was just asked today to increase my Catholic Charities donation...Why so Fr. Dave can have more fun with his "Boy Toy"?
Is this only a winter hut or a summer hut?

What is this "Maria Divine Mercy" all about? Who is promoting this devotion in this area? Is there any 'divinely inspired priest' who is disseminating this 'new devotion' in this diocese?

Today is very sunny day. Would the guys flock to the Rochester Spa from Ellicottville to Lockport, from Lackawanna to Lancaster,, from Buffalo to Batavia to relax a bit?

There will be a protest outside the Bishop's residence this afternoon from 1PM-3PM. Supposedly, parents and students from 5 of the closing schools will participate. What is the point?

Short of money and students, and the schools are closing. Go home and stop protesting!

Last night, the national news reported that Archbishop Gregory Wilton of Atlanta, Georgia, is selling his mansion in May and moving out. A good example to the parishioners and the donor who gave 15 million dollars for charitable work of the archdiocese.
Wilton has his sights set on Chicago. Most likely trying to impress the pope by selling the mansion. Improves his chances of getting Chicago and then he won't be needing the mansion anyway. Crazy like a fox!

He is not the only episcopal fax. There are number of them, including plethora of priests with their summer huts.

Stop demonstrating and donate money to the church coffers so they can pay their bills. You cannot run the Catholic schools on thin air!

Make the elementary schools truly independent. Call back into service the priests
who were unfairly treated. Lay people know better.
