People are trying to understand why Fr. Joe Rogliano is leaving 14 Holy Helpers Church. Not so much because they will miss him, but because it happened so fast. Before the usual 6 years (I think he was in his 4th or 5th). Does anybody have any insight to this? He said it was his choice, but he could hardly turn the Bishop down.
He doesn't have to present a reason. Maybe things weren't turning out the way he wanted and needed a change.

It is not so unusual for a priest to leave a parish after four or five years,so why are you making an issue out of it. There is a situation, two newly linked parishes, that need someone to take them through what probably will be a tirbulant time and both he and the Bishop feel he would be someone who could handle what needs to be done.

That's correct. The bishop reached out and asked him to do this. His original term may have been for six years, but the actually appointment letter reads more like "or until a subsequent appointment is received." So, he received a subsequent appointment.

No the ignorance is yours! Even Jesus went into the synagogue to pray. Since I see your are ignorant of Scripture I'd be glad to cite several more examples that even Jesus and His followers prayed at what you call "Organized Religion"
Please, if you are going to talk about this topic have at least common sense and some basic knowledge of it.
Or perhaps your an Atheist....That explains your lack of content!

You spout ignorance as though it were truth.

Jesus said, "When you pray, go to your room, shut the door and your hevaenly Father who sees what you do in secret will hear you..."

He went to synagogue as good Jew. Are you a Jew now? He did that so that he could establish a new covenant and fulfill the law.

Sheesh, get a book about theology before you comment.

Read back some....

Joe said that he would go IF the bishop asked him.

It was posted way before the announcement was ever made and was revealed on this blog before the announcement.

So,the explanation is easy - Joe was asked by the bishop.

Now, what is going to be rather interesting is which chancery bigwigs will get parishes...

If Fr. Simon is looking to bring down Corpus Christi (and it certainly appears that way) then he should hire Krysa to say the Polish Masses. Simon may accomplish his goal in half the time.

Since this conversation is going no where fast...pointless as a matter of fact...I am going to terminate your little tit for tat.

I would turn this over to my 12 year old since you seem to be on his level of discussion; No... he for sure knows more about the Faith (that's with a capital meaning Catholic Faith...sorry but I had to spell it out for you) than you do.

Oh, by the way I did attend Father Simon's Mass this morning and he was great! I intend to invite 2 neighbors of mine for his next homily.

Tell your mommy and daddy to drive you to church next Sunday o.k little boy....or...little girl...or whatever you are!

I also attended the Mass this am at Corpus Christi.
I agree, It was very good! Some brand new thoughts were offered and some sides of the attendance, and Mass worship issue were also discussed that I have never thought of before.

I liked it, and I felt welcome there.

This place is not closing, it is growing. And with this way of thinking, and with someone who is not afraid to touch on these issues it will grow even more. The most important reason to come to Church is Eucharist!
Amen.

I beg to differ.

At the meeting regarding the Dozynki, there was discussed that it made some money but the fabric of the parish is being torn apart because of the lack of priestly leadership and the factions (lay) that in-fighting. Attendance is NOT up; in fact, it is down. Masses played via internet, despite how nice, do not pay the bills.

The parish, without a major revision of lay leadership and some real priest leadership is going to fall.

So because clergy get angry sometimes we are to believe it is fine for them to use vulgar language?

They also get horny at times; would that make it ok to grab a kid?

The Oxford notes that the word "piss" is taboo or slang. Also keep in mind that the first definition of "piss" is to urinate, so you can see how the derivative phrase could be regarded as unpleasant. They are often associated with anger and vulgar language (at least in American culture).

Thus it follows that Simon posted vulgar language on the website, in the text of a flyer. At least, it is inappropriate for a man that is a religious priest and allegedly so close to Our Lady.

I think "Maestro" is Bruce Woody who often calls himself or is called Maestro. Plus this just sounds like him.

Maestro? From where? what degree does he hold? Let's compare him to say, Witakowski, or Kowtalo, or Lukaszewski. Those are real musicians.
