I happen to know he is too busy to bother with this blog anymore between the nursing home, working in the parish he lives at and teaching on the university level He is my spiritual director so I know what he does

The only thing you got right is that things could heal, but the posts u think are is, they aren't.

I am a member of one of the parishes in Bethlehem that merged so I know what is going on. Keep the prayers going.

How beautiful it is to have a weekly mass again(Every Sat morning at 9am). Thank you to all of those who supported us through the rough times and thank God for the strength to make it this far. We have more rebuilding and repairs to work on, but it is a labor of love and is worth it.

It is a simple answer. Before 1970 there were no evening Masses.
All Masses were on Sunday morning!

The church had to add the the other masses because a lot of the catholics were too drunk sunday morning to go to mass, certianly the irish ones were.
Personally I think they should level the church and use all the stones to build a giant fire pit to save the borough from having to haul all the trash to Pine Grove
