Suburban Church??? Why aren't they supporting Corpus Christi? After all, Chalupka was sent to Buffalo to save it and the girl he impregnated was its "uber" parishioner. Where's the loyalty? Have to wonder what church the happy couple will be getting married in. Or maybe they will just live together??? Wasn't it Chalupka's parting wish to see the pews at CC filled? Now he has a chance to add three more parishioners to the empty pews at CC and instead goes somewhere else. Go figure!
Why aren't they supporting Corpus Christi??????
I hope that's a rhetorical question.

After impregnating a woman while you were still a priest, her having the child, you leaving the priest vocation, do you really think that he'd want to show his face in that church?..... with all of the old ladies gossiping about it.
If that were you, would you honestly feel comfortable with your now family going to that parish?
Come on, get real Dunkirk!

Has anyone figured out the identity of the former Buffalo priest whose was featured as a prominent layman in the diocesan newspaper of another diocese, without any reference to his past "sins"?

I think they should go there and hear the comments from the people who were fooled for 4 or 5 years. Just think, pregnant and coming to his Mass, befriending anyone she could. Then, with child and coming to his Mass as the Phonies that they were.
I am hurt that this happened, but I am glad that they have come together. But, they should address the wrongs they have done. We need to forgive, but it will be hard to forget.
We the people of CC have been fooled again, and I think not for the last time.

<quoted text>Answering my own post: I pray that somebody from that parish reads this blog and I would like to give him/her some advice to pass along:
Anything that you THINK you KNOW regarding any slandered priest in this diocese is more than likely untrue. Priests in this diocese were nearly destroyed needlessly and none of them (nor any others?) are free to talk about it.
Have faith that the new administration and perhaps the next one would never assign a priest who is not worthy to lead you. Luckily, the criminals are in hand and the future looks more than promising and you should be assured that nobody would be assigned to you who would endanger any of you or your children. In addition, have faith that your current pastor would never be left hanging in order to promote someone else. Perhaps he is being considered for prominence? That would be my guess.
The DOB is beginning anew and it will soon be the best place to be a priest near and far (with all the sludge that has been/is being removed).

What more could the good Father ask for?

You're just pissed that your daughter catches for the 'other team' and can't bag a priest as you have.

While most news is negative, there are positives for the Church. American bishops are more united now than in 40 years. Most religion texts now have more doctrinal content than the ones used in recent decades. The new translation of the Mass puts more emphasis on God; it clarifies aspects of the Catholic Faith left vague in the previous translation. Some religious orders are getting vocations specifically those that emphasize Catholic doctrine, and direct, Catholic ministry. The communities that are shrinking, sadly, have very few members in distinctly Catholic ministries, kind of ambiguous on doctrine. There are fewer young priests, but they all seem specifically committed to Catholicism. The Church has never drawn so many converts who are Protestant ministers or highly educated laypeople. At a time when many churches are obedient to the media and the Gallup Poll, the Catholic Church is different.

I couldn't agree more. I have egg all over my face for writing three columns in the Am Pol Eagle about Father Chalupka's pious spirituality and commitment to the priesthood, even comparing him to John Paul II, while his bun was already in her oven. They were extremely good at conning people, those two. I have to wonder if Chalupka took the logical step, before he left the priesthood, to determine by DNA testing if that baby was even his. Wouldn't it be something, if in the end, he was the victim of the biggest con job of them all!

Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!

I can't tell you how much I have been wondering if the bishops are united.

Some times I get up at night and would pace the floor concerned that the bishops may not be united as they were 40 years ago.

Like you, I must not have much of a life.

P.S. I have also been worried wondering if bishops are less constipated than they were 40 years ago. If you have any information on this, please do share. People need to know!

Maybe they can go on the Jerry Springer show. You have to admit, it makes for a great story!

I'd have them on my show, but I'd need Chalupka's gay lover to come out, start a fight with Chalupka's Pani, and pull her wig off.

Do you have a decent bone in your body? The more I read your comments the more twisted you are. I would not be surprised to find out you stalk them and the kid.

Well yes, Fr. Rick, I do have a few decent bones left. I think you should be the priest to marry Anzelm and Kathy. Give them a good talking to at the Pre-Cana conference about saving themselves for marriage. Oops, too late for that. Never mind.

<quoted text>Good to hear. He must make sure this is known in the diocesan paper and also in the secular media. Ideally, he should disclose the names of all those credibly accused. Other bishops have done so.( And if any priest has been falsely accused,the fact should at least be mentioned.)
How and who determines what is credible? Go to court period. not a penny to anybody. There are victims and people trafficked and abused every minute of every day and they can't sue anybody because there is no money to be had. Shame on the church for giving our money away without a trial. Why do these victims AND their families accept the money. Is money what makes everything go away or is it money that ultimately makes everybody feel better, especially the lawyers. What do the diocesan lawyers do that they deserve to be paid. They have never defended a case and would be eaten alive if they went into a courtroom anyway. Afraid of their own shadow they are, and to think they are Irish!!! They would't even be good enough to boil a potato

Credible? Check the definition on the Internet. Every 5th grader can write a credible story. People like fiction especially when it is spiced with sex. The accuser of Charles Kavanough said he was molested when he was a minor. His supporters, the Review Board, the Archbishop of New York believed him. Now he confessed that he was then a college student. Incredible!

Many people are complaining about PHD's relics and the bars he has over "Mary's altar." They complain it throws the sanctuary off balance. PHD had to admit that it did throw things off a bit too. So what he will do is put his train collection on the Sacred Heart side and bars will be put on that side too. These trains are of historical significance as the replicate the train FDR's body rode on for his funeral. And this same train was blessed by Pope John Paul II when he came to calm Mary down when PHD cut a hole in her true veil. You see he tried to claim the veil got caught in the railroad track. Mary didn't buy it and neither should you.

Don't throw stones.
You have said on here that your husband got an annulment. That means you were married to a man still married to his first wife in the eyes of the church for a long time. That is called adultery, Dunkirk Dupa. Oops. Nevermind.
