Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 23, 2012 Simple by Girard A. Plante Mom was right. "People change. Morals don't!" Those are my mom's words. She was 90-years-old when she passed away on Jan. 23, 2011. Yet her words of wis- dom resonate still. And no doubt will for years to come. But this particular column is not about my morn. Im- mediately, I thought of her upon reading about the former Boston Roman Catho- lic Diocese's Bishop Richard G. Lennon in the Sunday, March 18, edition of the Los Angeles Times. Remember him? If you don't, please allow me to give you a brief re-introduction. In December 2002, Lennon's pal Cardinal Bernard F. Law got run out of Boston after the growing priest sex abuse scandal revealed he covered up abuse after abuse after of the acerbic Lennon and sent him packing in May 2006. It is d6j&' vu as Bishop Lennon has used his au- thority to shutter numerous ethnic parishes in Cleve- land's Roman Catholic Dio- cese since 2010. But this time a bombshell tossed by the Vatican court, the Con- gregation of the Clergy, smacked Lennon in the miter as it ordered 13 of the nearly 50 churches he ordered closed to open anew. Two years of daily protests outside locked churches, prayer vigils in the face of Lake Erie's biting winter wind, a lawsuit against the Vatican, and flooding Vatican City with letters, the un- precedented decision has deepened the faith of the mostly middle-class parish- parishes to establish Endan- gered Catholics, a gamely group that garnered support from public sector organiza- tions in a show of force op- posing the diocese's decision to close parishes. True to character, Lennon initially denied any decision by the Vatican court, but soon after a spokesman claimed he had "not opened his mail." After leaders of three of the closed parishes ordered Lennon to promptly give back property, money, and reopen the churches, he "made no commitment to reopen the churches any- time soon." "I don't think Lennon un- derstands what hit him," said Peter Borre, a Catholic activist from Boston who legally advised Cleveland parishes. Borre claims that ALL THAT ZAZZ by Mary N.

I spent quality time with Daddy-o and he did greeting the ladies! Naturally all good things end. I was back in Andover, abuse by pedophile priests under his thumb throughout his 18-year reign of shame. The entire Boston Catholic community was shocked when Lennon was appointed to replace Law. Lennon was Law's closest ally. He quickly caused a revolt by the faithful as he asserted his authority to shutter several parishes in Boston. Lennon arbitrarily picked out St. Leonard's parish in the North End.

It's been quite a road of manicuring tables, chairs, bottles of nail polish, no shows, cuticle- remover and nail files and -nail glue. When I wa~ graduating from high school Mom would say you must learn a career oth- erwise you'll end up smell- ing glue at the shoe factory! I decided to follow my Mom and Nana's career of cosme- tology. I still ended up with glue on my table but it is a most esteemed tool since I abhorred acrylic and gel nails. I use the glue to wrap tips with silk and repair weak/ broken nails in a more natural way of preserv- ing the health of the Natu- to move and when she did she told me we would not be using "draws" and that there were no draws on our new manicuring tables!
