  1. When i read this i am reminded that men who spent 3 years WITH Jesus did not always do the right thing...Judas betrayed Him, Peter denied Him, Thomas doubted...why are we surprised at human failing? Is there anyone of us that would want our inmost secrets as breaking news on CNN? The most wonderful part of this story is the untold part...Jesus loves him and will forgive him...we have a God of mercy.Having said that he should pay any civil penalty that his actions require.

  2. Mary: It absolutely blows my mind! I doubt that in all of the years that I have been a parish priest that the total of all collections would not amount to half as much as he stole! When I have to look at staff lay-offs and reduction in office hours, and am taking personal responsibility for some of the monthly expenses just to make ends meet, it is inconceivable that a priest could have access to sufficient funds as to be able to steal a MILLION dollars!

    American's obviously give A LOT more in support of their churches than do Canadians! I'd be happy with just enough to pay the parish bills each month!

  3. Maybe there's a lot more guilt in Connecticut...?

    Many (not all) Canadian Catholics are notoriously cheap. I've taken up the collection a few times and many parishioners are just scrambling for leftover change from the coffee they bought at Tim Hortons on the way to mass. Thanks for your toonie! That should feed the furnace for weeks. Many Protestants I've met are far more generous in supporting their churches. No bake sales, bingos, lotteries or chicken dinners required.
