    Shame on you for using profanity on a Catholic Church website. I am horribly offended.

    The beatings of young children at the former Corpus Christi School, the knealing on the broomsticks in the corner, hitting of knuckles until they bleed with a ruler, and being slapped in the head and knocked down a flight of steps by a nun, all this happened at age seven to me, the bitterness has never left me, and while attending the services at the Church it frequently comes back to me. I am currently a parishioner at Corpus Christi, but a very bitter one. I say again all this happened to me at age 7, I’m now 63. And, Lord have mercy, if I ever meet that nun.

    Pamela,
    I hope you did listen to Fr. Simon’s Homily and that you stick with the series.
    I found it very worthwhile.

    Mr. Majewski,

    I can’t help but ask myself, what kind of child were you at age 7 to deserve all those beatings!? I hope you straightened out your act later in life!!

    If the church is not like MTV, than why does it still say “pissed off”. I miss Father Chalupka. He would NEVER have allowed profanity on the website. He has far more class. As the president of the parish council, Andy, you shouldn’t try to alienate suburban contributors to your parish. My objections are valid and shouldn’t be dismissed.

    Dear Mr. Majewski,
    I’m sorry we live in a world where people (Neil) feel that it is appropriate to blame the victim for physical abuse. Neil’s response was insensitive and highly inappropriate, maybe that’s why he didn’t include his full name.

    Pamela,
    I diagree with your comment that ‘pissed off’ is profanity it is not. It is a vulgar slang term that people do use. Lay people have been critisized that priest do not relate to people where they are in thier life; well now you have one! In these series of homilies I will be very to the point; Live your Faith today not in the past!

    Dear Jack Anthony Paul Majewski,

    Physical and mental abuse by any one is never, never to be tolerated. Those bad examples as I’m sure you have come to understand were not true representatives of the Faith. I think no one who has suffered through those bad examples should ever give up practicing one’s Faith…doing so give so much power to that bad example…so much so that they had the power to take away one’s Faith. The greatest power you have is that you are still practicing your Faith at Corpus Christi with people who need to be around people like you to remind us that we put our Faith in Jesus and never, never in anyone else!

    Thank you for sharing and thank you for practicing your Faith with us!

    The only way to change things is to get involved not be uninvolved! I encourage those coming to Corpus Christi to be proud in the fact that you have 2 priests committed to being involved in a parish they believe in! Yes, in the future we will be transferred but the Pauline Fathers will always be here at Corpus Christi. We cannot do it alone! We need your participation! So before throwing the whole Church out with the bath water think about the many graces we have here at Corpus Christi. Let us continue this great legacy which has been handed down to us and never, never surrender it to any scandal, bad priest, nun or lay person!
