Holy Week of the 2015 Lenten Season
Diocese of Reno in Northern Nevada U.S.A.
Just when things could not seem to get worse, Passion Week is here. Today, I walked over 5 miles to the U.S. Social Security Office here in Reno and was denied both a new SSA Card but was unable to order a Medicare Card… only in Reno, there are local rules they follow.
Sort of like the St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral Roman Catholic Church has its peculiar rules. Any bag seen unattended is swiped and the RPD bomb squad is called.
Incidently, two uniformed protestant security guards had me leave the church before Mass last Sunday (the 22nd). After I said a rosary in front of the statue of Jesus lying in the arms of his mother Mary on Good Friday, one guy asked me to take my things to the back of the cathedral… only in Reno.
Only in Reno does the poor steal from the homeless. I have lost all my luggage from California, my cell phone, my laptop computer, my smart phone, address book, passport (stolen in Glenwood Springs, Colorado), drivers license, and important paperwork.
Oh Lord have mercy!

Harvey and Buck fail to retrieve lost luggage dumped by VofA black guard last Friday night at 9 a.m. and driven off by white Waste Management Inc. trashman at 4:30 a.m. PDT last Saturday March 22, 2015,
After a l0ng RTC bus ride and hike to the Lockwood Landfill operated by WMI, the tired intrepid ____ find themselves at the Lockwood Market with nothing but postage stamps to purchase cigs, sodas, and lunch.

During Wednesday’s regularly scheduled City Council meeting, Publisher D. A. Dailey made a three-minute presentation about the rude state of socioeconomic affairs in downtown Reno, Nevada.
Several pathetic observations were explained and he begged to get his belongings back that agents of the City of Reno threw away early Saturday morning at their 330 Record Street properties.
Efforts to recover four pieces of luggage and a red backpack from Waste Management, Inc. have so far been unsuccessful. Agents of the City of Reno indicate that the personal property have been buried in their Lockwood Landfill, located more than a dozen miles east of Reno.
I made a 3 minute appeal to the Reno City Council today…
things need to be done to improve the treatment of homeless folk.
Met with the director of Catholic Charities counseling and was so frustrated that I asked her to consider to resign… It was at least the sixth time that I went in for help – only once did they and it amounted to assistance on a $7 prescription of anti-biotics.
So, if an organization is masquerading as a very Christian one helping the poor, needy, hungry, children’s, etc… They have taken the good name of St. Vincent in-vain.
Why don’t they just shut their doors… if they don’t muster up.
“St. Vincent Dining Room of Reno” quit serving unnutritious food at your own convenience! Help the homeless! And not just the unborn child.
A letter was written to the Chief Executive Officer of the Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada. No response has been received. No improvements noted in any of the services they are involved with… Happy Holy Wednesday. Go figure…

Thanks to the clergy at St. Thomas Aquinas parish, the Bishop Cano of Reno (great homily last Sunday!), and some new homeless friends and gamblers, I am learning more about offering sincere alms for the poor.
Also important is how alms are distributed. More about that later . . .
Friar Father Joshua and I spoke for the first time since he blessed me off on my way from Reno to Palo Alto last January, during a donut hour after the 10 o’clock hour Mass this past Sunday. Friar Father Tom gave one of the best sermons I have heard and seen and felt all year, too!
You should help us here in the Synod of Reno, NOW.

. . . if you care to, please wire money to either:

I have been living since Wednesday (2/12/2015) on the streets and have no cash to pay for medicine or travel back to the Bay Area or Colorado for doctor’s appointments. Incidentally, I was informed by the County of Douglas Sheriff deputy [February 18th, our 12th day in town] that being or appearing “homeless” in this town or around Lake Tahoe is a crime punishable by monetary fine, court costs, and imprisonment.
Then I was dumped off in Reno a week ago Friday night by the Douglas County Department of Social Services after one of 17 Sheriff Department deputies I met during my two weeks there told me to leave town.Oh, God bless us and God bless America!
Thanks be to our Savior Jesus Christ and the mercies and grace that is available! Amen.
- Then, if you would please advise us of the transaction /confirmation number and special question answer to me, via e-mail so I can get a working phone line, etc.
