  1. How long, dear Lord, must we wait for justice to be done? How many people must leave the Catholic Church before action is taken? If Pope Francis really was sincere in his words of 2014 why do we still suffer with the actions of Bishop Dwayne? These are questions that have gone unanswered as I leave the Catholic Church. I see only requests for money, buildings being built which remain empty, where people can not even use them without the approval of Bishop Dwayne, and our church NOT walking the message of Jesus.

  2. AT OUR PARISH TODAY- AT MASS- WE HEARD A VERY GOOD HOMILY – IN FACT WE THINK IT WAS THE BEST ONE OUR PASTOR HAS EVER GIVEN –AND HE HAS GIVEN SOME THAT DO INSPIRE US IN THE PAST BUT THIS ONE TOUCHED OUR HEARTS—AND WE FEEL IT NEEDED TO BE SPOKEN FROM THE ALTAR
    HOW DO WE TREAT OTHERS – ESPECIALLY WHO ARE NOT LIKE US??

    I WOULD SAY THE THEME OF IT WAS TO ACCEPT THOSE WHO DO NOT LOOK LIKE US OR SPEAK LIKE US OR THINK LIKE US—EVEN THOSE WHO DO NOT SHARE OUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS …….HOW DO WE TREAT THEM???

    FATHER WAS PASSIONATE AS HE SPOKE AND WE KNEW HE MEANT WHAT HE WAS SAYING—
    HE TIED IT INTO THE GOSPEL READING—
    THE FATHER IN THE GOSPEL TODAY WENT OUT IN LOVE TO MEET HIS SON WHO HAD BEEN AWAY— ..HOW THE FR. RAN TO HIS SON…………….
    THE FATHER WAS NOT HARSH OR UNKIND—HE EMBRACED HIM!
    I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY OF THAT LOVE BETWEEN THE BISHOP FOR HIS PRIEST – FOR OVER 41 YEARS FR SENK HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT A GOOD PRIEST! IMAGINE IF THE FATHER IN THE GOSPEL TREATED HIS SON THE WAY FR SENK HAS BEEN TREATED???? WE HEAR THAT GOSPEL AND WE SEE NONE OF THAT KIND OF CONCERN AND EMBRACE IN OUR CHURCH IN THIS INSTANCE!

    AND HOW THE SON WHO HAD ALWAYS BEEN SO GOOD AND FAITHFUL COMPLAINED TO HIS FATHER THAT HE HAD NEVER BEEN TREATED LIKE THAT – AND NEVER EVEN THANKED HIM……………IT REMINDED US OF HOW THE BISHOP REALLY HAS BEEN TO FR SENK!
    IT HASN’T BEEN RIGHT!.
    I THOUGHT ABOUT FR SENK……………. HE HAS BEEN A GOOD AND FAITHFUL PRIEST ALL THESE YEARS……AND LOOK HOW THE BISHOP HAS CHOSEN TO TREAT HIM?
    ……… AND HE DOES DESERVE RESPECT AND THANKS FROM HIS BISHOP ……………AS WELL AS FROM THE PEOPLE HE HAS SERVED!
    .
    …. I FEEL LIKE OUR CHURCH LAYS HEAVY BURDENS ON US TO LOVE EVERYONE NO MATTER OUR DIFFERENCES—BUT IN FACT I DON’T SEE ANY LOVE IN HOW THE CHURCH ( BISHOP OF VENICE, FL AND PERHAPS EVEN ROME ??) Has treated FR SENK ———–
    IT HONESTLY MAKES ME SAD BECAUSE I LOVE OUR CHURCH–AND I SEE IT AS WRONG TO TEACH ONE THING BUT NOT TO LIVE IT!! ….
    ……ISN’T IT hypocritical for our church to profess THE MESSAGE OF LOVE but not LIVE BY THAT themselves?
    …………
    THE FATHER IN THE GOSPEL TOLD HIS SON HE ALWAYS LOVED HIM……..WE BELIEVE THAT — AND WE KNOW THAT FR SENK IS LOVED BY GOD AND BY ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY HAVE KNOWN HIM–
    WHY?
    BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN FAITHFUL, HONEST AND ALWAYS GOOD…….FAIR MINDED AND TREATING PEOPLE AS EQUALS–.THAT IS THE FATHER SENK WE KNOW—AND CARE ABOUT.
    WHY DOES OUR CHURCH NOT AT LEAST LISTEN TO HIM….?? WE ARE SUPPOSED TO CALL TOGETHER THE PEOPLE AND HEAR THEM AND WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY—
    …..WHY DOES THE CHURCH LISTEN TO THOSE IN AUTHORITY E G BISHOP DEWANE—MORE THAN TO FR SENK??
    THEY ARE BOTH PRIESTS—–ONE IS NOT TO BE REGARDED AS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OTHER—-BUT THAT SEEMS TO BE WHAT THE CHURCH DOES!
    THE CHURCH MUST BE FAIR TO FR SENK AND HEAR HIS CASE WITH OPEN MINDS LISTENING EARS AND PURE HEARTS— AND WITH CONCERN FOR HIS FUTURE AS A PRIEST AND A GOOD MAN…..WHAT ABOUT ALL THE MESSAGES OF MERCY THAT THE POPE HAS ADDRESSED TO US?

    FR.SENK IS NOT BEING JUDGED ON FACTS BUT ON THE POWER AND WORD OF BISHOP DEWANE WHO HAS NOT EVER LISTENED TO OR HEARD HIS CASE.!
    BISHOP DEWANE’S CASE IS BASED SOLELY ON THE WORD OF A PERSON WHO DOES NOT EVEN KNOW FATHER !
    OUR CATHOLIC CHURCH -THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING TO SUPPORT FATHER SENK!-THAT IS THE TRUTH!!!!!!
