    You have added distastefulness to your usually wonderful blog site. I am so disappointed in your lack of judgement. I am finished with this site…and the lack of quality it now has managed to adopt. Who would have thought it? Just because it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, in THIS case, doesn't prove it is a duck.

    Oh good, he/she is not coming back anymore.

    That'll last a whole 20 minutes.

    Really anon? From the tone of every one of your posts, I wouldn't have known that you thought Cleansing Fire was a wonderful blog. Also, if you actually have been following Cleansing Fire, as you claim you have, you would know that CF has been using humor since the very beginning.

    Then half an hour later you return to post more hatred. You really are a terrible liar.

    Same of you, sir, same of you.

    Hilarious video. Too bad our uncharitable anonymous friend here didn't enjoy it.

    I think anon could use a good smack of the crozier.

    This video was crass!

    When combating this shlock, we must all remember to imitate our Lord. Did he mock his tormentors during the Passion?

    We MUST be images of our Lord.

    White martyrdom is an option for those ufortunate enough not to be martyrs.

    God Bless.

    Mr. B, are you saying the words and actions of anonymous 5:26/48 are acceptable? Why are you attacking the ones exposing the fraudulence of this character, rather than criticize the one throwing around the insults and hate which elicited the response? I think your pointed words would be better directed at anonymous 5:26/48.

    It was a humorous clip. This is exactly why a priest should wear his collar! 🙂

    Anyone else happy like I am that the anonymous poster is leaving? I was getting pretty sick of his constant string of attack posts against the blog authors and readers. The poster has contributed nothing but complaints and agitation. I do hope he's going to confession, because if anyone needs it, it is him.

    Something tells me that had JibJab been around during the time of the apostles, they would have utilized it very well. Humor is not a sin.

  14. Mr. B says:

    I'm not attacking anyone.

    During the passion, Our Lord focused on what needed to be done and ignored all of the personal attacks – both emotional and phsical. He could have retaliated at any time – he chose not to.

    We are to imitate Him as much as possible. "Take up your cross and follow me!". Mark 8:34

    I feel as if the same should be done when someone vents his/her spleen on a thread. It takes people "off task" – the subject at hand. Think (and pray) about it

    When I feel offended, it's usually a matter of my pride. It clouds my judgement and uses mental an spiritual energy that could be used elsehere.

    We should be ignoring Anon and others like him/her. Not getting riled up s a way of showing christian charity.

    I know – sometimes it's necessary to get riled up. After all, that is the main point of ths blog.

    It's just that we should be focusing on the monumental task of change in the diocese, not worryng about Anon and those like him/her.

    Pray for Anon and those like her.

    God Bless.

    Funny video!

    However, I too am stopping reading only because the blog content varies so from day to day. I was looking for some thoughtful discussion and some resources for reading and reflection. I have found some of that elsewhere and am moving on.

    Keep on encouraging each other. You seem to have developed a siege mentality due to your DOR concerns. The humor and name-calling that may be appropriate for you isn't for everyone.

    Ok, whatever Susan. That is the most idiotic thing I have ever read. Everybody from the time you started posting knew you were the same one posting those other anonymous attacks, so stop trying to create some kind of phony outrage that does not really exist. By the way, there have been over 100 visitors here this morning…

    On your comments:
    -The blog content has varied from the beginning. To suddenly realize this now reveals much about your intentions in writing that post.
    -Elsewhere? I haven't seen you post at any other blogs. Ok, maybe once, but that's it.
    -The name-calling you describe is being carried out entirely by you. The blog experience would be enhanced if you would please cut it out. Your loss is our gain.

    Good thoughts, Mr. B.

    Get over it! Oh sure i listen to all of you mightier than thou fools who can't seem to come down of your pedestal. A joke! And oh so quick to judge and your scripture qouting does nothing to impress me, while you worship in sanctuaries led into heresy by some priest wanna-be lay person. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Pray a little more for this diocese and get over it and yourselves!

    Dave, you're right on the money.

    "..while you worship in sanctuaries led into heresy by some priest wanna-be lay person."

    Dear Lord!
    Make me remember,
    when the world seems cold and dreary
    and I know not where to turn for comfort,
    that there is always one spot bright and cheerful,
    the Sanctuary.
    When I am in desolation of spirit,
    when all who are dear to me have passed away
    like summer flowers
    and none are left to love me and care for me,
    whisper to my troubled soul
    that there is one Friend who dies not,
    one who's Love never changes
    Jesus on the altar.
    When sorrow thicken and crush me with their burden,
    when I look in vain for comfort,
    let me remember Your words:
    "Come to Me,
    all you who labor and are heavily burdened,
    and I will refresh you."



    This prayer's for you.

    God Bless.

    "that there is always one spot bright and cheerful, the Sanctuary."

    How about Sacred Heart Cathedral? There is no sanctuary there. Instead what should be the sanctuary has a giant organ and choir seating contained within it.

    "Jesus on the altar."

    What about Jesus in the tabernacle? Oh wait, the Lord has been moved to the back room or off to the side. Sometimes the private adoration chapel isn't even connected to the church. This is how we treat our Lord? Is the Lord just taking up too much space in our sanctuaries; taking up the spot where the Pastoral Administrator and priest are to sit?

    Anon 9:29- "By the way, there have been over 100 visitors here this morning…"

    It looks like there have been around 400 hits today (well, yesterday as of the time I am posting this). There would have been 401, of course, had Anon not stormed out and left.
