So Segundo couldn't sign because he's under religious vows. Would the money in this case come from the parish or 795?

If others are named in the settlement, is this just for Casarotto? Could Bialkowski be one? And any other priest? Or is it only for Segundo?

Most likely Voorhees signed the settlement and someone from 795.

Ludu, moj ludu! Cozem ci uczynil?
W czymem zasmucil, albo w czym zawinil?
Jam cie wprowadzil w kraj miodem plynacy,
Tys Mi zgotowal smierci znak hanbiacy.

It's official! As of August 17, Fr. Anzelm Chalupka has left the priesthood at his own request. Another one of my "shepherds" who turned out to be more lost than his sheep! Can Poblocki be far behind? But then again I have always considered myself the worst judge of character of anyone I know. I wasn't the only naive fool. Remember how Corpus Christi was packed to the rafters for Chalupka's farewell Mass? Oh what a popular priest he was. He had everybody eating out of his hand. What a phony baloney!

What's your source, Dunkirk? Did you see a laicization or exclaustration decree? His name and pictures are on the pilgrimage from two weeks ago and the monastery site.

Refreshing news that a guy actually leaves on his own accord. No settlement, no arrest, no court. I liked the guy and still do. Weakness is human nature. It is our place to forgive and move on. Good wishes to him.

Bialkowski settlement? Maybe. What ever happened to his other two accusers? The DoB needs to clarify his case.

Not that I know of. Probably only meant for the Paulines in America since it was issued in Poland.

I never heard of that. Are you speaking about the retreat house? Maybe they changed the name. Wall used to be in charge of that.

Isn't better to leave on your own than work for people who don't appreciate you? Or even worse be tried in the Buffalo News by Jay Tokass when you haven't committed any crime. Since when does he know better than any judge, jury or God.
