Where have they gone wrote:
I'v been away from the area for awhile and have lost track of where some priests have gone. Is there a directory for priests or by parish where they've been moved to with all the closing?
I know Fr. Joe Waclawski passed away. Does anyone know the whereabouts of Fr. George Reger, Fr. Tom Gresock, Fr. Louis Dolinic?
Reger is pastor at Blessed Trinity, Dolinic has retired. Don't know what became of Gresock. I don't think he's in active ministry in DOB

I heard the order sent Secundo to the Azores. The Latin Mass is still going strong. I visited two weeks ago. Too bad they have Bob M saying it now. He drones on and on. Good attendance though. Vale!

My Portuguese friend in Toronto told me that Fr. Segundo is indeed in the Azores.

He is working in a new Scalabrini mission there ministering to fishermen in the islands of Sao Miguel, Flores and Terceira.

Rev. Martin Luther King and others in the civil rights movement fought huge obstacles but at least the churches then were unregulated by government. They were able affirm other rights because of freedom of religion. June 21 begins the Fortnight for religious freedom. I think if Rev. King were alive today, he would be supporting it. I hope we all do.

The greatest priestly action I have ever seen was at Mass on a hot summer Sunday at St. Mary’s Parish in New Haven, Conn.

This was back before the parish had air conditioning. It was tough for the congregation, but worse for the visiting priest who said Mass in the summer. He had diabetes and some kind of degenerative nerve disorder that made his hands shake.
Catholic Priest Hearing Confession

Catholic Priest Hearing Confession & Praying the Rosary

“It’s hot for you,” he would joke.“But I’m up here wearing a horse blanket!”

This priest’s homilies were excellent, but the moment that is burned in my memory happened during the Eucharistic prayer.

Father was slowing down through the first part of the prayer, like an old record player that needed to be cranked. When he started the consecration, it sounded like he was going to stop altogether.

But after he started the consecration, it quickly became clear that nothing could make him stop.

“Take this,” pause,“all of you,” pause,“and”… long pause …“eat it.”

He took a long gasping breath and looked like he wouldn’t recover. A parishioner ran to his side. The priest made it clear he wasn’t about to leave the altar, so the parishioner brought a chair for him to rest on.

“This … is … my … body … which will be … given up … for you.”

He lifted the host with shaky hands. We watched in rapt silence.

He slowly worked through “When the supper was ended, he took the cup …”

And then a replacement priest had been brought over from the rectory.

But Father wasn’t about to stop halfway through the consecration.

Word after agonizing word, he got to the end of the consecration.

By then, an ambulance had come. After he elevated the chalice, he was carried away on a stretcher.

Then the replacement priest stepped up to the altar.“Let us proclaim the mystery of faith,” he said.

Talk about alter christus. Watching that priest was like watching Our Lord consecrating the Eucharist — from the cross.

“Mom, why wouldn’t he stop?” the kids asked their mother in the car.

“Because he’s a priest,” said April.“That’s what priests do.”

She was right. It is vitally important that priests preach and that they do it well. But preaching isn’t the most important thing priests do. A priest doesn’t need to be talented, interesting or well-read to do the most important things priests do.

The restriction on religious liberty isn't something that might happen in the future, it happens now. Many Catholic child welfare agencies and hospitals have been closed because they don't support abortion. Catholics and others who are prolife are sometimes rejected from medical school, or from social work jobs. Agencies that won't do abortion referrals are losing out on grants, or licensure, not only for pregnancy service but from ALL services. Support the Fortnight for religious liberty. The most important action we can do is prayer.

Whoever is in charge,nothing will change. The purpose of the diocesan paper to simply to echo in union with the hangers-on, the praises of the "Big Cat",i.e. the bishop.(Wasn't Kevin supposed to be headed to work with Massiello?)

Pardon me for a moment, I'm so moved by this that I just wet myself.
