So tell me, how many of you are going to look at your pastor standing behind the altar tonight wondering if he has any secrets to hide..
When he stands on that pulpit telling you how you must repent to the little child that was born this morning all well knowing how many children he has harmed in the past?
Keep giving your hard earned money to support his trips and dinners.
Merry Christmas.
I have to agree with you.
I have been to Church with Fr. Anzelm, and if he is the father of that 5year old girl, I sort of feel exactly like what you are saying.
Was he actually fooling us when he said Mass and his daughter was right there in Church with her mother?
I actually feel like he was and is a fake, and now I cannot believe it, but I did think like you have said just this past Christmas.
I thought about th priest behind the altar in the way you said, and questioned about him because of Fr. Anzelm being a fake faker. And I guess he has been doing it for a long time both here and in Yonkers.
It will take a long time for be to become a trusting Catholic again!

It was the best spectacle to be seen on December 23, 2011 when Mazur was holding hands with the 'vestal virgin' clothed in brocaded white dress walking through the main walkway at Niagara Casino. What a sight! Did anybody take picture of it of two frolicking people: a priest and a'vestal virgin?' There, however, was another female companion with them at that memorable evening at the Casino.Keep holding hands together for all eternity!Did they, perchance, have a clandestine weddding ceremony that evening at the Casino? Is that another Msgr. Grant in making?

How can one submit information directly to the Bishop Kmiec personally in order to bypass misguided office personnel who may censor or discard?

Every letter I sent to Bishop Kmiec in support of my Church, which was closed, in my opinion never got to him even though all the responses were "stamp signed" by him
In my opinion they were all responded to by Lipuma or Kevie or some other henchperson...

It is not just simply'something to talk about.' You are very mistaken if you do not understand the human psychology, and human desire to have connections with your best friend. Face the reality, and do not live in a dream world. Msgr. Grant deceived at one time everyone, including the bishop himself! Is your memory so short?Why would Mazur be different? Explain????

Aha, someone remembers Msgr. Grant. Yes, he had a secret wife and kids, and reportedly used diocesan funds to support them. Embezzlement seems to be endemic in Buffalo diocese. Don't forget Head's diocesan comptroller.

Was Msgr. Grant a relative of Fr. Chalupka. Secret families?

Here is your explanation, I'm too young to even remember Msgr. Grant or the situation. However, I know him he is not that dumb. Give the guy some credit if he is the manipulater you claim he is and sneaky wolf you describe him as Why would he hold hands with a woman at the Casino that is right next door to his parish? Are you all smoking crack??

Yes, this is what Bishop Kmiec himself told me when I complained to him (right in front of LiPuma)that I never got an acknowledgment from him re the only letter I ever sent him. LiPuma admitted he sent it to the Priests Personnel Committee instead of giving it to Kmiec. The kicker is it was addressed to Kmiec, it began "Dear Bishop Kmiec" and it was cc'd to the Priests Personnel Committee. Now you tell me why LiPuma would direct it there when it was clear I had already sent that committee a copy. This is a true and classic example of why Kmiec does NOT get his mail.

That was not Jacek Mazur. It was Francis Mazur. Your Niagara Falls Mazur is not the only one in the Diocese of Buffalo. Jacek is not the center of the world! Clear now, you poor detector!

Which parish, baby???? More juicy stories about the priests? What else is new? That is the reason they buy their own private hideout places to cover up their trails.
