A Home on the Oxbow

This is a must read article from Chuck Wellborn on the goings on in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and their treatment of the parishioners at the Aquinas Newman Center at UNM.

And he  has let the cat out of the bag on the purchase and renovation of a new home on Alamogordo NW for Archbishop Sheehan's retirement home.  This is the second home on that west side street with a view that the Archdiocese owns.  In fact, I did a little search that shows there are over 130 properties listed as owned by the Archdiocese on the tax rolls.  Except they pay no taxes on them.  Oh that we all could have a retirement home without property tax.

I know folks who have dedicated a good part of their lives to the church.  At retirement they have little to show for their acts of selflessness.  But as anywhere, rank has its privileges.
