Archdiocese of Boston

Church closings reflect lack of compassion

"In consideration of the parish appeals, the archdiocese now has an opportunity to act judiciously and with compassion for its people. There is time for the reconsideration of decisions made in haste and without complete information. Alternative strategies have been suggested to allow for preservation of parishes. Mediation cannot possibly succeed if the outcome is unilateral. Now is an opportunity for the archbishop to hear the cries of the people and restore faith in the leadership of the church."

My house shall be called a house of prayer

...but you have turned it into a fashion show for the parading of nudity. Made all the worse- the Church is dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes, the Immaculate Mother.
