Of course he didn't have to spend so much and could have had better advisors regarding good taste. But the people who can not buy a loaf of bread? Are you suggesting that St. Stans money should have been dispersed to them? Have you counted how many soup kitchens and food pantries are in the city of Buffalo. How about teaching these people some living skills first!
I've gotta feeling somebody's watching you.

Congratulations Art. Good luck with the Fogeys. They will not appreciate your ultramodern and bad taste vestments or playing the piano for your own Masses but you'll do well there away from parish life... if you don't mess up. Go with God!

Thank God. All is well. Thanks to all who were kind in the dark days. I can now rest easy. I was never Fr. I am not as smart as he is. However, I would like to debate with all esp. West Milford.

Was Msgr. Paul Whitney ever a guest at Msgr. Ted Berg's "parties" at the latter's Canadian villa?
If you knew Father Berg you would know he didn't use the monsignor title because he thought it was pretentious. When he dressed as Little Bo Peep it was after he retired and was a joke because he had a great sense of humor. He wasn't afraid to laugh like some priests are. The joke was that he was retired and lost his parishioners or sheep. That's why he dressed and said I'm Little Bo Peep and I lost my sheep. Some of you people are vicious and nasty by what you have said against this great man.

Actually I did not mind him playing the piano when are normal person was away. He is talented and was teaching a special music class to the students as well prior to his removal. Bad taste vestments??? You would have to elaborate, our vestments at the church are new, they were able to purchase new ones a few years ago from a donation from a parishioner.

Why didn't he refuse the title when it was offered to him then? He didn't use it so he could draw attention to himself by not using it and portraying himself as humble.

I have permission to respond to you. Thank you for your kind words. You are correct and it is a loss to the faith-filled of WNY. Also, I know Mike Blake and what he says in that blog is patently untrue. The teens of STA went to 7PM Mass on Sunday night. It was always a mob scene. I ought to know....I was there!

Who cares which priest is gay and which 1 is not. This means nothing to me. Let me ask you all a question, if you work or are now lucky enough to be retired and happened to have a co-worker that was gay, did you go and plaster their name all over a blog, probably not!!! Why does it matter so much??? Btw seeing how this board is I am happily married to a women.

God will bring justice to those hurt by those using his name in vain at Corpus Christi Church. My Earth Father and Mother are bonded by love and part of the Immaculate Ejaculation. Did you think God my Father wouldn't see you fools at Corpus Christi for who you really are? You try to preserve stone, you try to preserve paintings, you try to preserve Polish heritage, and you try to preserve your lies built on hate. You are the destroyers of faith. You don't care about the neighborhood or its people. Most of you are racist, homophobic, and live behind a wall of religious deceit. You take communion in your filthy mouths without having any clue as what it means to be a Christian.
