Artie couldn't get along with his school principals. He wanted to get close to kids and their watchful eyes got in his way. But, the last principal spanked him like a baby and out his butt went. He messed with the wrong principal! Now, Artie is confined to a nursing home and can't be in a parish.
You are incorrect. Our principal never had nor has a problem with Fr. Smith. I do not know what you are talking about but it appears to be slander.

Two Eastern Archbishops have been kidnapped in Syria. One is Antiochene Orthodox and brother of Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch; the other I Syro-Jacobite. No one is sure of the identity of the kidnappers. The driver and deacon of the Antiochene Archbishop were killed. Please remember them in your prayers. (This story is being largely ignored in the American press.)

I think that last statement is a little over the top. There will always be a DOB. Too bad that they are not more interested in bringing the people back. You have your orthodox church, what are you going to do with it?

I don't care what you know, I know better.

Don't confuse me with someone who is trying to convince you of something.

LOL! Sister? you are like a dog with a bone! OMG! Everything you are trying to prove is not true actually is and you have laid it out quite nicely (you are a year or two off but not by much.) I am concerned that you are so consumed with hatred for Fr. I am not sure that is healthy. What exactly do you believe he did to you to incur this unhealthy and frightening anger?
Oh, I think you're a bit confused. I don't have any hatred for you, Artie. My concern is that you are deceitful, especially on here. I think you protest too much when accused of being Art and that alone tells me a great deal. By the way,that isn't the only point that revealed that you are Artie. Also, you have said a lot of vicious things about others on here. I don't appreciate those comments and how you were deceitful in going about it.

The Great American Press is busy interviewing Martha Stewart. The reporting is so High School it is sickening. Just like the Catholic Paper. Are there any journalists around anymore?

Well said! A journalist like Matt Lauer with a 25 million dollar contract is interviewing Martha Stewart because we are supposed to be interested in her dating life. With all that is going on in the world, it's worse than High School and pretty pathetic just like the local papers secular and religious.

Here is an example.
Contemporaneous accusations of abuse against Catholic priests are extremely rare, recently averaging only 8.5 allegations per year for the entire United States. Compare such numbers in the Catholic Church with those of our nation's public schools. Just in New York City alone, there were "248 complaints of sexual misconduct involving school employees" reported just in the first three months of 2012.

Haaa Haaaa.
My Church with 10 X's more members than CC closed, and somehow, the Diocese is allowing CC to stay open with two other Churches right next door. WOW.
What is wrong with this picture?
Maybe CC refuses for Merge.
Maybe We should have done that.

If you don't know by now how and why CC stays open, you are either naive or ignorant of the ways of the DOB and those two little Polish Bishops and Sinister Destroyer. Instead of being envious, you should try to learn something from CC.

Corpus Christi is not merging with anybody. The churches to weep for are St. Gerard, St. Ann and St. Adalbert. Some loudmouth
know it all from this blog should find some guts and do something.
Where is the media, where are the journalists, where are the preservationists who want to save every chicken coop. Where are the parasites who only want to make money on the East side whenever they can? Beautiful Architecture is not just a Catholic issue.
