As I said before, I will be back when St. Anthony's re-opens and the smaller congregation is back. I dont like all the people in one church...too crowded for my taste. I will stay home as will alot of my friends and watch it on TV. Fr. Bill puts me to sleep... although the deacon puts me to sleep faster! I need an upbeat celebrant who doesnt run off at the mouth for a good while. Fr. Bud has very short sermons if anyone is interested although parking there leaves lots to be desired. Hope the Bishop sees the error of his ways and reinstates St Anthony parish or lots of good catholics are going to go astray!

I have to say at this point the lies,treachery,deceit have me so disgusted that for the first time in my life I'm considering leaving the Catholic church! And no this has nothing to do with the buildings! I've witnessed evil on all sides of this issue and it's intolerable! The worst part is the Devil is behind all of this and so many of you who are involved in this tragedy can't even see it! I did support one side at a certain point but the Lord has opened my eyes and now I understand just how messed up all who are involved with this garbage are!Bishop Zubik don't you understand that you are losing your flock by the decisions you are making?

The mass was very nice last night but the singing was terrible. I wll never be able to listen to GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN againg. The choir leader needs to understand it is not about her. It is time for her to go.

Mass at OLV was very nice also and it was full but not overcrowded. Fr. Bud had a sermon of about 7 or 8 minutes. My only complaint with that church is with the music department...the organist watched too much "chiller theater" when he was young and when he sings and plays...LOL he sounds like a goat on a merry-go-round! LMAO
Goodbye to the fight to keep an overcrowded church open!

A accusation such as that from someone whose motto is "A dog's life is good?"

I also feel bad for the people of Sandy Hook and d0 pray for them as well. But I also go to church to pray for everone but it is very difficult when your choir cannot even sing the GLORIA right. Time for a change.

As if bitching about local Roman Catholic diocese politics is any more productive?

Wouldn't think the fantastic staff and leadership leads to such dismay.

. Dismay? Great leadership happens during dismay. Anyone can lead when things are easy. They deserve congratulations.
