I know that Bishop Malone is doing the right things. And I wish he closes more financially burdened churches in Buffalo, Lackawanna, Batavia, Niagara Falls, and elsewhere, The sooner the better! More schools also should be closed!

I will stay in Cheektowaga because you have turned Corpus Christi into ONLY a museum of buildings where nothing spiritual happens. So few attend the poor liturgy there, And most people are not welcome there. You eliminate people you think are "unfit", and THEY will be the first called to be with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, not you. Even the people in the neighborhood are not welcome there, even to "test the water" and see what that Church is all about.
So continue collecting money if that is all that is important to you.
If you left Corpus Christi and hate so much its present parishioners, how come you are always a critic of what is going there? Where do you get your information from? You must be one of those people who do no good but see everything bad. Hop on board or get out of the way or just shut up!

As you may know on May 10th Fr. Michael Burzynski had a minor stroke. He's been in St. Joe's and at Sister's Hospital where he has been recovering well. Once his rehabilitation at Kenmore Mercy is complete we all hope he will be back behind the altar and celebrating Masses. He is expected to have a 100 percent recovery thanks to the intercession of Our Blessed Lady who Father Michael loves. Please pray for a certain woman from our parish who caused Father Michael the stress that brought on this terrible stroke. If you are from our parish then you probably have received emails or phone calls from her. Many are saddened that she could be this heartless as to cause a person all the suffering she has caused our priest. It was wrong calling people to ask them not to go to his 25th Jubilee and it was wrong to steal statues and the baptismal font from our church. I hope and pray that God does not let this woman suffer a stroke to help her realize all the harm she has caused our parish.

I don't like Fr. Mike, but, I hope he does recover for his own sake. Who is the new priest at St. John G.?

You're not giving any concrete or otherwise reasons for closure. You're making to generalized statements. I happened to be comparing some schools on my own. Why would he keep a school that is in need of repair over those that are newer and have lots of real estate? In a few years the next Bishop will close the older ones, because they need repairs. Also, he's closing schools that are financially sustainable on their own. Why not use the newer and larger buildings for the displaced students if he must close them? They are forced to go to a non-catholic school. I think your the same person who is always saying the Bishop is right, but isn't backing anything up.

If you are gone , why do you care what happens. Are you envious? And just what would you like the diocese to do except demolish the church? Have you heard of any other solutions coming out of all of you great intellectuals. Don't you know that the same people you are talking about work for the diocese. Who is dumb here? Pan G. and the secretary all report to diocese. Dumb and big dupas all of you are.
The people who do not believe you should do some check. If not don't pretend to know something you don't know.

When a church considers itself the beacon of light and jewel of an otherwise slum/ghetto neighborhood, it might be a good idea to cut the grass around your property. Right now the church "fits" into the slum like setting. Sorry, no beautification award from the city this year.

This lady....and I use the term lightly....has hurt a lot of people and she will get hers someday. She said that she always gets her way and I'll be darned but that has happened over and over. Karma has a way of catching up to her kind. Father David is not fooled by her...though she thinks she has him wrapped around her finger. Unfortunately, she is wealthy and that is something she uses to lure him to her. Much of this is my own dumb fault, but what is done is done. Does it bother me? I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel used, but Karma has a way of looking out for people like me and rewarding us for our loyalty in being a good friend. Do I blame him? No, because money has always been his weakness and that I always knew. I give him credit for a lot of things and he was smart enough to know the real her. I could tell some stories that he told me but I don't want to betray the trust he placed in me as a loyal friend. For now, I'm just glad people realize all that I've been through and though I don't wish what I've been through on my worst enemy....even her.....I am one person who will be happy when she is finally arrested.

What people don't realize is that Father Mike is a personal friend of Father David's. I would have to say that Father Mike B. is probably Father David's closest priest friend in Buffalo. I say this because he has other friends who are priests in other places, but, I don't want to mention those names. This lady...and I use the term lightly.....I'm sure doesn't appreciate that Fr. Mike B. is Father David's friend because she wants Father David all to herself. If she causes Father Mike B. to have a stroke then she would have Father David all to herself. I was probably his closest friend, we had a unique relationship. I was more like a mother and sister and I dare not say what else I was to him. We were closer than two people could be until she came along and ended things or at least she thinks she ended things. I know what Father Mike B. must be going through because I was ready for the hospital and I dare say the morgue myself. You have no idea what this person has put me through. Yes, she is rich and can buy whatever she wants, but, what she doesn't realize is that she can never buy what the two of us once shared. If Father Mike B. would like to contact me further he knows how to get in touch with me. A little bird will be sure to tell him how if he has forgotten.
