If Bishop Richard Lennon thinks the people of the Diocese of Cleveland are against him, he needs only to look no further than himself to ask why. Consider the following:
Bishop Lennon, while vicar general of the Archdiocese of Boston, made it very clear that he shared Cardinal Law's assessment that the clerical sexual abuse scandal was a Chicago problem and not a Boston problem. While the late Joseph Cardinal Bernardin brought the abuse scandal to the spotlight, and while Mundelein Seminary had a notorious reputation, it was Richard Lennon who kept adding to the smokescreen of denying that Boston had any problems, and put the blame squarely in Chicago.
A bishop who needs a police escort to close a parish in the United States??? WHAT A JOKE! It was Bishop Lennon who ignored the VPL-II recommendations, so it's in his 'little mind' that the people of this Diocese have a lot to think about? It's the other way around. Even Cardinal Law did not have a police escort with him. BTW....PROPER LAW for a diocese means that the bishop is likewise bound to it, unless it is contrary to the universal Code of Canon Law. And what he's doing in Cleveland is SINFUL!
Richard Lennon understands???? Let's take this downtown! He's as artificial as a cheap bouquet of plastic grave flowers from a Dollar Store! And if he thinks he's' not making money on these closures, here's a reality check, bishop....YOU ARE!! You're making money from the sale of the buildings, and in doing so, you're making back the expense of closing the parish. Additionally, his Special Assistant for Reconfiguration, Deacon James Armstrong, is another idiot to avoid. He is just as arrogant and ignorant as the man he works for. AFFORD THIS MAN NO ACKNOWLEDGMENT WHATSOEVER...this also extends to Father Ralph Wiatrowski, the Pastor of Saint Barnabas Parish in Northfield, who is still listed in the ANNUARIO PONTIFICO and THE NATIONAL CATHOLIC DIRECTORY as the Vicar General of the Diocese of Cleveland. He is likewise, an EVIL AND DISHONEST MAN! Check out the photo album here!!
Don't ever think of calling the Chancery Office...the fem-nazi Chancellor, Sr. Therese Guerin Sullivan, refuses to return calls, and you can never reach her. Then, if you happen to get her secretary, Elaine Craider, never ask her for the address or phone number for any institution in the diocese if you don't have it, her response is, "I'm sorry, that is confidential information, we can't release phone numbers!" Excuse me, I'm the one who pays YOUR salary. It has already ceased! What Ms. Craider does not know, is that while she was making excuses and lying about 'policy', the entire conversation was transcribed, and yes, I have the date of this transcript as cited on July 12, 2010, at 2:40 p.m. Then, anyone who has had problems with the Diocese or who has complained about the diocese is blocked entrance to the offices, which was confirmed by former Diocesan General Counsel, Santiago Feliciano, Jr. Sorry, again, I paid for those buildings, therefore, unless a person has a restraining order for being a convicted felon,, you can't deny entrance...and I WILL STAND OUTSIDE 1409 E. 9TH STREET WITH A PICKET SIGN STATING SUCH...AS THE SIDEWALK IS CLEVELAND CITY PROPERTY! Father Larry Jurcak, the newly appointed pastor of Saint John Bosco Parish in Parma Heights, is another demon to avoid. Not only does he not return phone calls, he INTENTIONALLY refuses to address or refer to God as "FATHER"....and I have proof....just go to Mass when he has is. When the preface is prayed, he says, Ever-living God, which excludes, "Father, all powerful"....another dishonest man running loose and, is the President of the Canon Law Society of America!! GOD HELP US!!
Brother Patrick Shea has no business being the lead counsel for the diocese- he's an agent of Bishop Hitler, and if he thinks he can suppress the freedom of American Catholics from speaking out against the bishop, a letter to the Ohio Supreme Court and the Ohio Bar Association can rectify that problem.
The Diocese of Cleveland is reaping the fruits of its lies and deceptions- beginning with Joseph Smith's embezzlement charge and then, Bishop James Griffin, the former bishop of Columbus, who hired Mr. Smith published a blatant lie, in The Catholic Times (the official organ of the Diocese of Columbus), The Cleveland Plain Dealer, and The Catholic Universe Bulletin that former bishops Pilla and Quinn had recommended Smith to him for a comparable job in Columbus, while he was still under Federal Investigation in Cleveland. How compelling that Bishop Griffin resigned 4 months after Joe Smith was convicted. If his health was as bad as he claimed to be, he would not be teaching 5 courses at the Josephinum for the 2010-2011 Academic Year. So much for Bishop Griffin's honesty, especially since he closed the BEAUTIFUL Saint Leo Parish in Columbus in 1999...which, was financially viable. Griffin is nothing more than a greedy money monger! One of Griffin's staunchest defenders is the vice-chancellor for the Diocese of Columbus, Deacon Thomas Berg, Jr., who is Griffin's Deacon-in-Waiting....ask anyone in Columbus, and they will tell you that this arrogant deacon is literally joined to Griffin's hip....as he's present at any or all functions to which Griffin is invited.TO OUR VISITORS FROM COLUMBUS, BE PROACTIVE AND AVOID BOTH OF THEM AS YOU WOULD POISON IVY IN THE WOODS!
Does the diocese have a problem? YOU BET IT DOES, AND THE PERSON CAUSING THE PROBLEM IS...... RICHARD LENNON!!!
