Priest strikes over empty collection plate

A fed-up Polish priest has gone on strike because his parishioners don't
leave enough on the collection plate.

Father Piotr Lenart, parish priest at Deszkowice in south east Poland,
refuses to talk during mass.

Instead he stands in silence in front of the congregation for 15 minutes.

"At first we thought there was something wrong with him. It was only
after a while we worked out that he had gone quiet because he was angry
with us," said one elderly parishioner.

The fall out began two years ago when the priest asked for donations to
rebuild the church car park.

Parishioner Jozef Duglosz, 75, said: "I'm not paying because I haven't got
any money.

"I've only just enough to make ends meet. The priest should understand
this and stop behaving like that. It's an embarrassment."

With some of the sermons I have heard I'd prefer fifteen minutes of silent prayer.
