We're busy helping priests get their Christmas cards out, so that they can make a few $$$ on this holy season. That's what Advent is all about...preparing. Preparing to get some $$$!

I saw Fr. Ray Corbin's photo in the WNY Catholic. He sure does look like "the boy next door."

Who footed the bill for Quinlivan's retreat in Ars, France?

Is Mike Burczynski being paid by the parish while he is being paid to be a chaplain on the cruise ship? That is double dipping. Besides that two week stint (sort of) on the cruise ship, how much other vacation does he take?

Benedict XVI - Ratzinger: God's Rottweiler
Paris Arrow
Well, well, Benedict XVI has been given all the chances (while he is still alive) to be a little bit different from John Paul II, but, unfortunately he fails to take the opportunity to repent and change his ways. He and his hypocritical apologies about priest pedophilia are like the little boy who cried “Wolf! Wolf! Wolf! In the end, no one believed him. And now, at the wake of the Irish revelations of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army www.jp2army.blogspot.com , Benedict XVI is crying Wolf! Wolf! Wolf! Again.
Most Catholics are outraged by Benedict‘s bland reaction to the Irish priest pedophilia scandal, but, it should not surprise us Catholics any longer. Benedict XVI directly led the cover-up of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army. He is a criminal who aided and abetted the thousands of Catholic pedophile priests and he will never change. He should be sitting in jail instead of the Chair of Peter.
You cannot teach old dogs new tricks. And God’s Rottweiler, Benedict XVI is an old dog with old tricks – he’ll go on supressing the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army like "Dust in the Wind" unto his papal grave. He’ll keep on acting as the Supreme Pontiff, carrying out his pompous daily papal show at the Vatican, dealing with royalties, world leaders and wealthy investors for the sake of the Vatican Bank. But now, Italy’s government is now investigating the Vatican bank for money-laundering. Benedict XVI’s papacy will be marked by the moral scandal of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army and the financial scandal of the Vatican Bank. These are the two scandals that dwell in his ugly racoon eyes.

I wonder if PhD. sips champagne on the cruise ship - toasting his good fortune of being the only church in NF not having to merge with anyone. His kingdom is intact. I also understand the pastor from DM does the early morning Mass at St. Mary's on Sunday and now Msgr. Ducette will be doing the Mon. and Tuesday 12:10 p.m. Masses. Ph.D. needs more time to cruise and less time at the parish. Na zdrowie!

Hope he puts away some of the CRAP that Grosz had strewn around the church. Put away all those plants and gold plant containers, take the spotlights off the floor in front of the altar, put the stoles in the stole drawer and stop using them for decorations, and give all those damn plastic pillars back to the funeral home!

No Christmas decoration this year at DM? Wreaths on the doors of all the closed churches. Divine Mercy on the Niagara (former Holy Trinity) has a wreath on every door, including the rectory -- very nice. Maybe some garland on the automatic gate - might be a nice touch.

Suggestion: if DM is going to put the manger on the roof again this year, they need to anchor it down. Remember last year? Not a pretty sight. Mary was hanging upside down from the roof, St. Joseph was rolling down Niagara St.

So....unless some decorations go up soon, looks like DM is getting rid of yet ANOTHER tradition - no Christmas decorations.(I don't think Christmas decorations are a (gulp) POLISH TRADITION.)

Catholic churches don't put up Christmas Decorations until after the 4th Sunday of Advent. It's not a Mall. DUPA

I AGREE WITH YOU 100%
I don't believe that there are many gay priests out there. I believe there are many more priests with sex issues, such as pedophiles, and womanizers and priests that have other problems such as alcohol,drugs and gambling.
When a priest is caught for such crimes, it is not only a criminal act but also against the very thing that they have taken a vow for. THey are a man of the cloth and a servant to the Lord. Yes, they make mistakes but it is the higher ups that HIDE the crime and try to make everything better by keeping it quiet.
These horrific acts should be brought to the law agencies immediately and dealth with under the laws... The church can take away their title of priest but the church should not be allowed to be the judge and jury. The law is the law.

cont: If the Catholic Church allowed the priests to be married, SOME of the issues would be taken care of. Those priests would have a better grasp on family issues such as dealing with spouse, spouse's family,children,schooling etc.

But a pedophile or rapist, will be that, even if that person is a doctor,teacher,lawyer or priest. Just so happens that the church has hidden the crimes of the priests and caused terrible harm to children and families.

They are just making sure there's something else to criticize here -- keeps things going. If there weren't anything to complain about there would be no posts at all.

No, most churches are decorated by now. I think that the clique is getting weary of the "price of glory". He went to often to the well and now the initial enthusiasm is slipping away. T
