7. He doubled attendance at Mass
8. One mean nun and one unqualified jerk
9. The school did that.
10. Not worth commenting on
11. Had his back???? LOL! You mean when he ran him out of town in the 70's? I thought he he rather nice to him all things considered.
12. A greedy Canadian did that!
13. No one was nicer to Fr. O than he was and I know because Fr. O told me so.
14. Good-looking youth? This one is sad and I do not know why you feel that way. All kids are good- looking.
You should not believe all the rumors your parents gossiped about.
Art always is blaming others!!

Art,
Stop lying!
7. Not by the hair if his chinny chin chin.
8. Mean? No she wouldn't put up with you and you were the one who hired the person you claim wasn't qualified. How did the qualifications not come up when you did the interview and application?
9. No the school did not do that. Fr. Art did that because he couldn't manage money.
10. Just because he rejected you and went to the bishop.
11. Were you getting even? You tried to say you had his back at the time. Remember when Higgins wouldn't let you in his house that day.
12. That isn't what your sister said.
13. How about Ray?
14. You don't gravitate toward those who aren't pretty.
Art, we are all behind the Bishop because we know your history ever since the seminary. If it weren't that I didn't want to hurt you, I could tell some stories from those days. Do you remember some of them? Do you remember certain relationships?
All our priests need and deserve our prayers and obedience. That is our duty as laity. Never criticize or question a priest; they represent God here on Earth. If you hear someone speak against a priest or questioning a priest, pray a Hail Mary for the priest and the misguided soul who is working against God's will.

Even St. Paul resisted the pope St. Peter when he was wrong. See Galatians 2:11.

7. Too stupid to comment on.
8. Yeah, mean and vindictive. I still can not fathom her calling herself a nun.
9. Ever hear of the school council? How about the P/T Assoc. They were really good with money...weren't they? Ever been to one of their lavish parties or how about shaking down the little kids for money everyday selling chips and ice cream. What every kid needs on a daily basis.
10. Are you referring to the one that cleaned out O's secret booze stash and then made up stories to get himself out of trouble?FYI, a lot of seminarians and priests stayed there. Don't you find it odd that the booze hound was the only one that made trouble. He also used to torture the altar servers cause they could smell the booze on his breath.
11. You idiots would have been the first to burn him at the stake if he publically came out for the pro-life movement.
12. Which one? There are several.
13. RAY????? OMG are you kidding. He was a nightmare. He mocked Fr. behind his back constantly. No one wanted to live with him!!!!
14. Well, not much to say here. LOL! Maybe there are more pretty people in the world than you know.

I imagine bitter people like you and your kind were behind this, however you must live with this not him. To bad your recollections are so off, you have attempted to destroy another human being. Proud? Probably.

Congratulations to Fr. Michael Parker on a job very well done yesterday as M.C. How refreshing to finally see some different and without the swish, after 15+ years.

Many pre-pubescent bloggers here have hard time to grow out of their immaturity and learn the real facts of life: without good manners and a clean mind you don't go far in life.

He may not swish in public, but that does not mean he is not a swisher in private.

What a coincidence. In the same issue of the Buffalo News where Michael was featured there was an article about an 8.5 million dollar renovation of Michael's second home: the Buffalo Club.

Nothing worse than a Mercy nun with an atitude EF. LOL! By the way how is Angie. She was always so nice especially to married women who had babies and then an exploded appendectomy and then were forced back to work 3 weeks later. Got who I am now, you old crow! LOL!

Yes, Fr. Parker can afford a Buffalo Club membership because of his inheritance from Msgr. Snyder. Parker was the aged Monsignor's boy toy.
