Bishop Accepts IPPG Proposal

May 29th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

Cleansing Fire has learned that Bishop Clark has accepted the IPPG recommendation to merge the Irondequoit parishes into one. However, whether or not the parishes to be closed were mentioned specifically has yet to be determined. I will keep you all up to date with whatever news comes to us. Please check back often, and spread the word.

As if pressured by the fates, Fr. Tanck included in this weekend’s bulletin one more slap-in-the-face for St. Thomas the Apostle parishioners. To read his piece in the cluster bulletin, click here. Why is it that when people need a pastoral priest the most, they are confronted with veiled accusations of faithlessness?

Probably the same reason that the orthodox in Rochester are punished for their faith by the administration.

Another thing you should note, is that Fr. Tanck’s announcement this evening is the first time he has been present at a weekend Mass at STA in seven weeks. Could his views be any more obvious to the casual observer? I think not.

Bishop Clark, remember that you are a representative of the Holy Apostles. Let this knowledge, and your conscience, dictate your decision, not the politicking of those with whom you have surrounded yourself.

St. Thomas the Apostle, pray for us. St. Matthew the tax collector, and holy Apostle, pray for us. Our Lady of Prompt Succor, pray for us.

    If I'm going to hell because I love my parish, then I expect to see Fr. Tanck and Bishop Clark greeting me there on the day I begin my punishment. For their sins of darkness far exceed my sin of love.

    Holy Name of Jesus gets around 350 people each week.

    To close STA, who averages more than 100 people more every week, is a crime against humanity.

    It will be with much sadness that I see my beloved STA close, we must continue our fight for what is right, rightousness will prevail, if we continue to pray and believe in the goodness of our Lord, and wonderful mysteries of Mary Most Holy

    Go to DOR Catholis and read: The CHurch, women and the bishop want. It's a presentation made y the bishop to an assembly several years ago. This has been a recurring theme throughout his tenure.

    He states: People want a church that deals with divergent issues in a loving and just way rather than what may seem to be a dictatorial kind of mannor,"

    "A broad spectrum of voices should be heard before coming to colclusions that relate to teaching and policy of significance"

    Now does any of this wonderful cum bay ah, apply to the closing of STM? It's all rubish.

    These statements are made to dupe people into believing that the bishop is a nice guy, that every opinion mattes, when he really is a dictator, who will get his way, every time. or else its the highway.

    Of course. The progressives swoon over this guy, and call him "pastoral." But there is nothing pastoral about him. He is apathetic, has no zeal for saving souls, and he places his selfish political vision for the Church ahead of caring for the needs of his flock. I honestly don't think he cares if STA is shut down. In fact, he may actually be happy to stick it to those rabble-rousing orthodox Catholics.

    Oh, but if you possess the same ideology as Bishop Clark, you two will get along great.

    Along time ago, someone who new Clark well told me that he is "mean, vindictive, and desirous of revenge."
    This has been proven over and over again through his reign to those who don't go along with his liberal theology of the Church. Good priests, seminarians, and faithful lay people have all experienced his wrath.

    When the new bishop comes aboard, after seeing us and coming to conclusions, he will respond as the new Bishop of Buffalo and Boston. Will close up shop big time. Then there will be a parish north of the thruway and a parish south of the thruway as well as east of the rive and west of the river. Megga churches like our friends at the real christian (small 'c' on purpose) churches have. They love Catholics. This will just make more of them.
