POLISH NUN SILENCED FOR SPEAKING OUT ON NUN ABUSE.

by Jonathan Luxmoore The Tablet

Poland’s Catholic bishops ‘reacted with outrage’ to Mother Olech’s decision to publicise the scandal, a source said

Poland’s most senior nun has been banned from further media contact after condemning the sexual abuse of religious sisters by Catholic priests in her country, and welcoming the Pope’s recent highlighting of the issue.

A church source told The Tablet “urgent internal enquiries” were underway to establish how the interview with Mother Jolanta Olech, secretary-general of the Conference of Higher Superiors of Female Religious Orders, was run last week by the church’s official Catholic Information Agency, KAI. The source, who asked not to be identified, added that Poland’s Catholic bishops had “reacted with outrage” to the 78-year-old Ursuline’s decision to publicise the scandal, and said the nun had been cautioned to avoid further public statements.

In her 14 February interview, Mother Olech said no comprehensive data had been collected on the abuse of nuns in Poland. However, she added that she had been notified of “very painful” cases during her years as Conference president and secretary-general, none of which had been made public, and welcomed the Pope’s pledge on 5 February that the Church was now tackling the “scandal” of priests and bishops who molested nuns.

One young Polish nun had been forced to leave her order after becoming pregnant, Mother Olech said, while the priest who fathered her child had remained in his post without “any serious consequences”. The Ursuline added that most abuse cases had been “covered up in the dark recesses of the human spirit”, but said she hoped the new generation of nuns would demand support from beyond their immediate congregations.

“This isn’t the first time this has been raised, and we don’t know if it will change much – but it should at least show some people the time for concealment is over”, Mother Olech told the KAI agency. “Certainly, this problem has a wider setting and reflects a general attitude to women in our society, a society to which church groups belong, and in which they’re formed and shaped”.

Poland is currently home to 17,858 nuns, mostly engaged in teaching, healthcare and charity work, but also employed in parishes, seminaries and diocesan offices, according to a late January Church report, although its 105 female orders have cited falling recruitment, alongside a drop in priestly vocations.

A senior member of the Warsaw-based Ursuline order denied that a formal ban had been imposed on Mother Olech for her interview, but told The Tablet on Monday the nun had “said all she had to say”. “As secretary-general, she’s been well placed to know what happens here – and what she said is certainly true”, the order member said. “We haven’t heard of any concrete action being taken against her by the Church for saying it”.

It was the latest of many outspoken statements by Mother Olech, a former sociologist and Vatican diplomat, who also served as Superior-General of the Polish Ursulines in 1995-2007 and as a consultant to the Vatican Congregation responsible for religious orders. In 2017, she told Poland’s Gazeta Wyborcza daily she would resist any infringement of the dignity of nuns, while in March 2018 she said religious sisters should be better paid and acknowledged for their work alongside male clergy.

In her KAI interview, she said she doubted many Polish nuns would wish to be involved with the US-based MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault, launched via social media in October 2017. “But we must, as nuns, look after ourselves – we’re not children or people without free will”, the Ursuline told KAI. “We have our dignity and must be aware of this in our relationships. We can’t allow ourselves to be used – we must respect ourselves and ensure others respect us”.

In a brief statement to The Tablet on 20 February, Mother Olech denied being the object of “any prohibitions” in connection with her Catholic Information Agency interview, but provided no further information about the circumstances of her KAI disclosures.

LETTER TO PAT FROM AN AFRICAN WOMAN
Good morning Bishop Pat Buckley

I was browsing on the internet about PRIESTS WHO PREY ON VULNERABLE WOMAN and came upon your blog, from – 2016.
I live in Africa.
Tell me who can help me get over the pain of this happening to me?
Is there is a group I could join??
I have reported the issue of this man to his Superior as well as his Bishop.
Do you counsel as I cannot afford to go for counselling or do I get help some where else?
I do not wish to seek revenge but rather find closure for myself.
Nothing ever happens to these immoral priests. They just continue to minister and without consequence.
They get protected and a little slap on the wrist and the woman, even though I have all the evidence is doubted and asked what is my motive 😦
I feel no one hears me and he has caused further emotional pain to me, not because I was in love with him but rather he has betrayed my trust in him as a confidant and what i believed was a friend, it is abuse.
It is very frustrating and like hitting a brick wall all the time.
Thank you
I look forward to your reply.
Kind regards
Xxxxxx

PB Dear Xxxxx

Its a pity you are so far away.

Im sorry for all your suffering.

Would you like to communicate with an Irish woman who has suffered like you.

Bishop Pat.

XX Thank you so much, that would be wonderful. I communicate via this email address, if that is okay.

You very kind. Yes indeed I have suffered and no person takes it seriously even though I have all the evidence, as usual he just continues without consequence 😦 it is very upsetting and traumatic.

Have a wonderful day

God bless you

PB Would you like me to write to his bishop?

XX Hi Bishop Pat

I did and he replied that what is the truth about the content, the motive and how reliable is the story and I must approach his superior which I did. I also asked that it be published for all to see that such a man is prowling around in the media, as where would he meet such a person and got told to approach some committee so they can act on it directly. They have never again replied to me via email. I cannot afford to make phone calls. Okay I only sent that a few days ago and people can get distracted by other issues but I feel that when it comes to an adult and it is not a case for the police but it is abuse as in power abuse, which constitutes sexual abuse, it is not taken seriously. They Catholic Church sadly, have many hypocrites in it and I myselfam a Catholic. It would be nice to just talk to someone who has gone through a similar experience as I realise possibly the only way one will get closure is by talking about it to someone who can relate to it as well.

You very kind

I am keeping in touch with this woman and introducing her to an Irish woman who has been through similiar.

Your expression of outrage is no greater than how I as a priest feel. I abhor all abuse, even the abuse you spew out in this blog. So don’t lecture others and make so obnoxious a judgment on all clergy.

Your words are those of a dangerous despot. You should pray for a spirit of inner calm. I am more disgusted and outraged at abuse than you’ll ever be as I work each day seeking to care for people as best I can and am conscious every moment of encounter with parishioners how I personally need to give greater witness to God’s mercy. I doubt if your continued abuse of others on this blog attains anything positive or life changing apart from satisfying your pathological hatred of clerics and perhaps giving you the only sense of purpose in your life.

Recently I received a letter from an African woman outlining her ambitions to further her education but she didn’t have the money to do so. She probably googled Irish Dioceses to find names and addresses but I was very suspicious of the letter. It’s not the first time I’ve received such letter from deepest Africa! I can’t verify the email Pat received but I’d like if he would let us know if she followed through on his advice. There are many religious missionary sisters all over Africa who are dedicated to the empowerment of women through education and provide much support, help and counselling for women who find themselves in abusive situations of any kind, particularly human trafficking. I’m sure this woman could be referred to such places.

    Oh, come on, guys. It’s as obvious as day follows night that the sexual abuse phenomenon in the Church will extend also to the abuse of female religious by male priests. It’s more of the power / authority / influence imbalance that is at the heart of all abuse. So, my instinct is to believe that this takes place, and to expect the Church and religious order authorities to investigate it and root it out. Being overly defensive about it, or in denial about it, is just another iteration of what happened when other forms of sexual abuse were first being discovered and realised. So, let’s skip the decades of denial and coverup of this particular form of sexual abuse and spool forward to looking at how it is now dealt with.

  20. Early in February 2019, the Vatican women’s magazine denounced the sexual abuse of nuns by priests and the resulting ‘scandal ‘ of religious sisters having abortions or giving birth to children who are then not recognized by their fathers. The February issue of ‘ Women Church World’ , a monthly magazine distributed alongside Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, was published early February and cited Pope Francis’s own analysis of abuse by saying clerical power was at the root of the problem.It said nuns had been silenced for years by fear of retaliation against them or their orders if they report priests who abused them.The publication marks a significant public acknowledgement from inside the Vatican of a problem the Holy See has long known about but has done next to nothing to address.

He makes obnoxious judgments, incites hatred against priests and frequently abuses others through the ugliness of his words. He would not say in public many of the things he posts on this blog. (He hides, like most of us behind anonymity). He expresses good insights and arguments at times but depending on his drink induced mood swings, he can be a very nasty, vicious, condescending and arrogant individual. His abusive postings should never be tolerated. He invites the vitriolic opprobrium directed at him. I ask you to observe for a little longer and then you might appreciate that he is deserving of harsh criticism. He is well able to dish out the dirt – so he should not be surprised to receive it in return. Watch this space…..

        And have you anything to say about the abuse and sexual exploitation of religious sisters and women by priests?

        If you’re that curious, check with ‘the powers that be’ wherever you reside or better still contact the Vatican.
        They must have plenty of names to hand.

  22. Irish Times Feb 6th 2019;
    Pope Francis has said the RcChurch has faced a persistent problem of sexual abuse of nuns by priests and even bishops. The popes admission opens a new front in the long running scandal of sexual abuse by priests, recognizing nuns who have tried for years to call attention to their plight. Francis recalled that his predecessor, Benedict XVI, had been ‘a strong man’ who he said had sought to remove priests who committed sexual abuse and even ‘sexual slavery’.
    And there’s muppets on this blog ranting about Magna! Enough said.

  23. 9:35. I can assure you that I am not Magna. 9:13. I have been on this blog for a long long time and I have to say that I agree with Magna’s comments most of the time. It is right to detest evil and speak out about it in the strongest possible terms. In doing so, Magna expresses what a lot of others are thinking but cannot put into words in such an eloquent manner. Having a go at Magna is a poor attempt at deflecting from where the real evil and abuse lies – with an organisation which styles itself as a Christian church – namely the RC church which in turn is guilty of the most heinous of crimes totally against the word of God. Magna is well able to defend himself but it is pathetic to try and deflect from the actions of the rc church by attacking Magna. The RC church is an evil mafia and most of the priests I have come across in life are self serving egotistical individuals who think they are better than the rest of us. Indeed some of the greatest psychological, physical and emotional abusive priests have been elevated to positions of authority (bishop Patrick Walsh to name but one). These men are not of Christ but of the church . These men are not Christ like men. This blog rightly exposes these evil bastards (that is exactly what they are) and Magna, in my view is right to heap as much criticism as possible on these monsters. By attacking him for doing so you become an apologist for these bastards who have tortured us for years. It would be better if your criticisms were directed at the abusers of the rc church . If, as Kool Kat suggests, those of you who attack Magna are indeed priests then that is an affirmation that Magna is speaking g the truth. You, by your comments are cowards and enablers of the abuse that your church commits. Tomorrow you may say Mass but one day you will answer to Christ for making a mockery of his suffering and betraying the word of God . You don’t serve Christ. You serve another. The RC church is a disgrace and as time goes on it’s misdeeds will become more and more known. Ordinary people no longer fall for your pretend piety and pretend righteousness. Even trying to defend this organisation makes you culpable in its evil. Keep it going Magna. Keep showing what these Christ betrayers are really like – a pathetic bunch of no good scum.

      Many of the clerics posting on this blog, literally have, ‘skin in the game’.
