You would have to be a Corpus Christi parishioner to truly appreciate all that went on and why this baby ain't gonna get much sleep at least until Lent. This is a five-year fraud we are talking about here, not an overnight transgression.
The world will not end and Corpus Christi will not end. We will end before Corpus Christi will. Get over yourself. There were only a few parishioners with very strong far reaching fangs , most are gone, hopefully the rest will soon follow. Nobody loves a rattler.

I heard it at Mass on Sunday, it was all the talk!
And, no one is bothering the Child.
That child is darling, and created out of love, but hate, shame and fear, and evil caused the 5 year lie.
Lying to me and my sister, my entire family! That is VERY BAD
However, I forgive them, will have trouble forgetting about it, but wish them no harm.

The John Jay study makes it clear that 82& of the abuse by Catholic priests was homosexual in nature. While there may be a large "gay" contingent among the Catholic clergy,most of these are not abusers. As a matter of fact, most Catholic priests,no matter what their sexual preferences are,find the abuse abhorrent. The Catholic church in the USA is the first body to look at ths problem from a scientific point of view. There is more to come out,but something more than a substantial beginning has taken place. The bishops are to be complimented on this.

The LA archdiocese has finally released its documents on child abuse. When will the Buffalo diocese do the same?
Apparently, only 35% of the documents have been released
of the suspected 30,000 pages which include convicted, accused and credibly accused clergy. Please remember that "credible" does not mean "prouvable". Besides, if a case is not tried, the credibility
and the evidence of the accused is not known.

Read the letter of Gomz and Mahoney.

OOPS! If I am not mistaken, the 12,000 documents refer to any clergy (deacons, priests and bishops) who had anything to do or was mentioned in connection with the convicted, accused and credibly accused clergy.

This is exactly how the elite at Corpus respond.
I am sorry my English is not so good.
There are many who will never live up to the wonderful few at Corpus Christ.
Still, my family and I will try to keep going even though we are not worthy, and told all the time about it.
there are many unwelcome there.
I think the unwanted at CC will be the first in line with Jesus.

Some great renewal and revival. All the money for repairs and restoration comes from outside sources. It appears that the parishioners are unable to come up with any money out of their own pockets. If the parishioners aren't coming up with their own money, where is the money going to come from for regular upkeep and maintenance once all the restoration work will be completed. Why should non parishioners subsidize a church for parishioners who have no money. You can't blame the Franciscans for neglect, the parishioners did not come up with money for upkeep. You can not blame the Franciscans for getting out when they did. There weren't any parishioners and ther wasn't any money.

Why don't you charge 400 dollars for funerals and weddings like Fr. Jacek Mazur in the Falls, and you will have sufficient amount of money for everything? And your treasure/coffers will be full.

aren't most molesters gay?
This, from the American Psychological Association:

"Are gay men more likely to molest children? General public perception is that child molestation is directly linked to homosexuality. Perhaps it's because many continue to falsely associate homosexuality exclusively with sexual behavior and thus believe children are not safe around gay men. This misguided perception has led to widespread opposition to gay teachers, religious leaders and day care providers among others. But is the link between gays and pedophilia fact or myth?

Adoption expert, Carrie Craft cites the Child Welfare Information Gateway (previously National Adoption Information Clearinghouse) as stating, "A child's risk of being molested by his or her relatives' heterosexual partner is over one hundred times greater than by someone who might be identifiable as being homosexual." The study also found that of 269 cases of child sex abuse, only two offenders where found to be gay or lesbian. The American Psychological Association agrees, "Another myth about homosexuality is the mistaken belief that gay men have more of a tendency than heterosexual men to sexually molest children. There is no evidence to suggest that homosexuals molest more children."

According to these reputable studies, gay men are actually less likely to molest children. So, will these myth-busters change general perception?"

My opinion to that question...... Not on THIS blog. Too many uninformed and uneducated individuals here who are still living in the early to mid 20th century. They still believe what their parents and grandparents told them about homosexuality.

To those individuals..... DO SOME READING, BECOME INFORMED, AND EDUCATE YOURSELVES!
.....AND JOIN THE 21ST CENTURY!

St. Anthony's Church closed its door for good. What about other churches in the Diocese? Is the Bishop still 'sleeping?' Still waiting? What? Ask the local pastors in each area!

It is also "not OK" to eat shellfish, wear clothes made of a cotton/poly blend, or speak to a woman while she's menstruating. Check scripture.

If you are making a comparison by making all things equal, you are devious and deviant or just sick and disgusting.
