Don't worry,guys. All of the above are going to happen sooner or later. Malone is still trying to hang on a bit longer to his honeymoon. But sooner or later relay will kick in,and Regina will have her clipboard out. Alternate worship sites will be reduced, more parishes will be closed. Rome has actually started the initiative for reducing the number of seminaries. There is little at SJV/CTK that merits its staying open. The financial prospects are ambiguous, and there are very few students actually preparing for ordination. The one-time jewel in crown of the diocese,intended as a model for future seminaries in the USA will disappear.

Those abuses over the border are considered heinous and illegal. The church abuses are considered moral because clergy were involved.

The church has been self governing. Sex traffic is handled by government agencies.

Cape Code and Provincetown are frozen in snow. Therefore, Micelli and Malone are frozen as well. Keep hoping for warmer days to sun yourself in the privacy of your summer hut!

I noticed the 10,000$ heating bill at Corpus Christi while I was reading the bulletin yesterday in the freezing cold Church.
We heat the convent for a few women who live there and work at the Broadway market in the bakery, and we heat the Kolby building for AA meetings, and the Athletic building for bowling and beer drinking on Friday's and bingo on Saturday. We are so few who go to CC, WHY are we heating 5 Huge buildings? Instead of asking for more money, I would like to see better stewardship of the funds that have already been given. Then I will give more.

You mean, the gay bowling and party joint in the Athletic center.
I have said it before-close that place down.
I also have it from a very good source that Chalupka is lurking around that place again. What? looking for another victim?

If the Pope lives at the Vatican is he protected from prosecution? Let's say someone turns up evidence that he was aware of abuses when he was in his previous job. Is he immune?

As head of state, the Pope can not be prosecuted.
After February 28, the bishop emeritus of Rome (or Father Benedict?) willspend 2 months as a Vatican citizen in Castelgandolfo (which is Vatican territory) and then willlive inside the Vatican. The Vatican does not have extradition treaties with any country. That's how thousands of Jews were saved during WWII...

It is almost like they heat that huge place with it's Huge buildings for the chosen few.
I will not give money because of the money Chalupka took.
I cannot believe they have renters in the old convent.
How many? Is it up to code by city regulations?
close it!
