Sacred Heart in Bowmansville got a new pastor...leising...but his message in the bulletin sort of tells the parishioners in quite a tone...that he is not living there and sounds like it is just going to be run as a business. He is going to meet with all the groups...offer some plans.....and many will like it or many wont like it or no one will like it...but sounds like no one cares anyway! what a way to run a diocese. sicari spends a ton to remodel the rectory and now no one is going to live there anyway...is that where the $25,000 went???

Is that how Corky and Aurelio did some years ago? And Len, their best friend was defending these two 'innocent doves' in the beginning! Who is going to defend Smith, Sicari, Mazur, and other visitors to the Rochester Spa?

He is not the only one of doing this! What about Sicari? What about Smith? What about one in the making in the Falls with the rectory table food money? And plethora of others!

In order to be a respected pastor by the selected group in each parish, you must have a dog and a dove to be a Priest of a Month to hit the pages on the diocesan website. Perhaps a private cottage would even enhance this respect, especially if is by the lake! Is that the 'ideal priest?'

Chalupka fell in love with a woman. That is what happened. He has been in process of leaving for months but was delayed after they had to shuffle guys around after Wydmanski was arrested and fled the US. He is a good man and a good priest. The normal priests leave and the gays stay.

Chalupka betrayed Jesus and his vocation. What are you talking about? How do you know that all those priests that stayed are gay? Do you have some divine knowledge of that? Or is your insight, prophetic???

Why don't these priests live in their parish rectories? Spend money on renovations - new carpeting, new flooring, new furniture, new everything.....and then they move off the premises to private homes, lake ranches, etc. Why? Rectories not good enough for them? Don't want to be bothered with the parishioners and others who come for help? Don't want to bother visiting nursing homes, the sick.... What????
This was their vocation, the lifestyle they chose, the career they chose dedicating themselves to God, bringing others closer to God. Can't do that when one is lounging by a lake somewhere and partying.

LiPuma -- next bishop? I doubt it. First of all,it is known in Rome,that he is not well liked among the clergy. Further, they will want to bring in someone with experience to make further difficult decisions in the next few years. However, they have been cases where the Vatican was totally insensitive to the wishes of the clergy and laity.

Agree. Who are your thoughts for the next Bishop...and when?
