WHAT ARE YOU THE IRISH JESUITS PLAYING AT WHEN IT COMES TO SAFEGUARDING?

BLOG FRI / SAT 31ST AND 1ST

AN OPEN LETTER TO IRISH JESUIT PROVINCIAL LEONARD MALONEY – WHO REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEDGE OR REPLY TO LETTERS AND EMAILS.

Dear Leonard,

I am writing this open letter to you because you do not acknowledge private emails and Ms Fox says she checks the blog everyday.

Jesuits are renowned for being highly educated men. But education does not, automatically bring good manners with it. My father used to say: “If nature play not her part, in vain is labour. I regard your refusal to acknowledge emails, especially from alleged victims of sexual abuse, to be an example of extreme bad manners.

Saoirse Fox

In recent times you and your safeguarding person, Ms Saoirse Fox, have received 4 complaints from:

Dublin J – an ex Maynooth seminarian.

Dublin N – a young Dublin layman

Dublin P – a young Dublin layman.

Birmingham M – a recently left Jesuit novice.

All alleged complaints refer to Fr Paul Prior – currently a Jesuit Novice.

Ms Fox did confirm to Dublin J that a complaint against Prior by Birmingham M is being is being investigated currently.

Ms Fox told Dublin J that she has never heard of Dublin N or Dublin P.

But Dublin N has sent me a copy of an email he received, yesterday, from Ms Fox!

Here are emails between Dublin J, Dublin N and Ms Fox?

EMAIL FROM SAOIRSE FOX TO DUBLIN P

Various questions arise;

1. Are the Jesuits acting in good faith on these matters and abiding by best practice procedures

2. On the basis of the emails above, is Ms Fox speaking out of the two sides of her mouth or has someone hijacked Ms Fox’s email or identity?

3. Does Dublin N and Dublin P really exist or is someone engaging in mind games?

4. Dublin J believes that mind games are being played and he believes that Fr Prior could be behind them? Dublin J says he experienced Fr Prior playing mind games while in Maynooth?

5. What did Ms Fox mean when she said to Dublin J “I do not want to get involved with whatever is going on here”. What is going on here?

In any event, Leonard, these are most serious matters and in my opinion, you have the duty to issue a statement clearing up these issues.

I do not have much hope that you will do that 😥

St. Ignatius, pray for us!

Yours sincerely

+ Pat Buckley.

MOVEMENT FROM THE JESUITS

The former seminarian Joe Sheridan has, this afternoon, received a solicitors letter from the Irish Jesuits solicitor confirming that are taking all the allegations seriously and promising a thorough investigation.

194 replies on “WHAT ARE YOU THE IRISH JESUITS PLAYING AT WHEN IT COMES TO SAFEGUARDING?”

Dunno about the Irish Jesuits but there is an ever increasing number of complaints of a safeguarding nature here in Scotland about a Glasgow based Jesuit who was attached to the prestigious school, St Aloysius College.
The whole bloody place knew what was going on yet when he died a few years back my son said the church was mobbed and he had an enormous funeral
Seems his requiem was a gathering of the great and the good of alumni who are now leading lights in the professions in Scotland.
My son, a lawyer, said the deceased’s antics were the talk of his group of his friends and seemed to be very amusing.
A visit from the priest in the changing rooms at rugby seemed to be a rite of passage.

She isn’t going to bite the hand that gives her a six figure annual salary. Also, if they got rid of Prior they would probably have to close down the Birmingham Novitiate, which would be most embarrassing for the SJs as their Irish Novitiate is now closed because of lack of vocations.

Like

It would be no embarrassment at all.
They’d simply join all those other Orders that now have just the one seminary or novitiate in Rome.
That means the people at the top of the Order can see have a good look at new entrants, and before those newcomers have undergone any ‘Spiritual Formation’ – that is, learnt the tricks of the trade in respect of disguising a seriously flawed personality.

Like

Whatever way you look at it, the Jesuits certainly are moving slowly with their investigation. That’s fair enough if they are being robust and truthful. The denial by the safeguarding officer of further complaints is most alarming and does not inspire one with great confidence in either her office or capabilities. Abuse of any kind is despicable and must be investigated thoroughly without any cover up, especially from an organisation which professes to be in the service of Christ. As for the priest Prior I do not know whether he is guilty or not and he is entitled to be presumed innocent until otherwise proved. What is his current status? Has he been suspended pending the investigation given the gravity of the charges levelled against him. This would be the normal course of action. With its history of cover ups, I fear that the complainants will not have their cases adequately investigated by the RCC. Despite Ireland becoming a more secular society, there does still seem to be a reluctance (maybe divided loyalties) on behalf of the civil authorities to pursue claims against RCC clerics adequately.

Unless the complainants are minors the accused is not asked to step down as a normal course of action.

Hi + Pat. I note that the pictures of the letters / emails on your blog today have been properly redacted, because when I looked last night or this morning I could easily read the redacted names beneath the black felt pen. Actually, I’ve forgotten them now. They meant nothing to me. But I guess it was wise to further black / white them out.

Prior does seem to be in some bother. I suspect that this matter is being looked at by various bishops, superiors and safeguarding people, perhaps even the police in various jurisdictions on both sides of the Irish Sea. I was interested to see that one of the complainants has a Birmingham connection, and others SJ connections. So, I guess + Bunty / Nursey Longley will have to take a view as well, if Prior is still in his jurisdiction.

I don’t know the detail, and probably never will, but there really does seem to be a great deal of questionable stuff being reported about Prior. I just wonder why these things were not being addressed before now, by Maynooth, by his bishop, by the SJs in their recruitment process. It seems strange. I bet it will be a matter of various people, perhaps quite a number of them, knowing things but just keeping quiet. Actually, that makes them complicit in matters of breaches of safeguarding. It’s more of the business of various forms of coverup, denial, thinking it’s not my business, that the Church and clergy have relied on for centuries to ensure that significant issues are not brought to the light. Well, those days are over, and the light will shine on this stuff and people and they will have to be held accountable. Watch what is happening in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, admittedly a completely different issue, but the same dynamics apply, namely lots of people knowing that things were wrong and did not fit and that things were dangerous, but keeping quiet, and leaving it to others to make decisions, and then when things go badly wrong spending huge amounts of capital and energy to ensure that they do not get held accountable. Well, they will be held accountable. As will the people in this present Prior case, because they knew in all likelihood and have done nothing.

There does seem something odd in Prior’s trajectory. A 50 something year old man, already a priest, moving over to the SJs to hang out in noviciate with 20 or 30 something young men, having been moved on from Rome and then Maynooth, with a track record of an inordinate and inappropriate interest / fascination with underpants, which he wasn’t shy about sharing with young seminarians, and other rather off track involvement with these young men. What was there not to see / notice when the SJs were talking to him and considering him as suitable for their noviciate ? I reckon the SJs dropped the ball there, and didn’t do proper background checking of Prior before taking him on as well as the already known problems that came wit him. I think the Irish SJs need a new vocations director with a bit more common sense and antennae !

Yep, and that kind of stuff should have been picked up on and acted on PDQ. I guarantee you that people will have known these things, and wondered a bit about them, but then decided – yes, decided ! – not to follow them up and find out what was really happening. It takes a seminarian to have the courage and guts to tell about them, probably at great personal cost to him given the power imbalances in this whole thing. What is as important about this whole matter – Prior’s peccadilloes and predilections are probably secondary in this matter – is that nobody thought to act on what they could see, hear and smell, but rather chose – yes, chose ! – not to do anything. That’s irresponsible, callous, careless and probably actionable because these were people with a duty of care, which they signally failed to carry out.

Re your ‘racist’ comment. Subtlety and nuance may not be your favourite approach.
In the Hebrew Bible there were at least two observable strands when it came to Jewish views of non-Jews which crystalized after the exile. One, as in Exra-Nehemiah took the view that the Lord was God of Jews only. The other, as in Deutero-Isaiah adopted a universalist perspective.
It would be strange if either did not figure in Jesus’ early formation.
It would be an anachronism to use the term ‘racism’ for the former since the concern was primarily theological and not anthropological.
It would also fall within the boundaries of poetic licence for a preacher to use the word ‘racist’ to enable his/her audience to connect their experience with what might otherwise be thought of as obstruse biblical facts.

My understanding is that Oakley has an interesting and colourful past, which you wouldn’t normally expect of a bishop to be. Well, so did Kieran Conry, and anybody with any sense knew about his womanising, but they ordained him. So, maybe extra-curricular activities don’t count any more in the criteria for choosing a Roman Catholic, celibate, bishop ? I’m not so sure that the intelligence services of the Papal Nuncios and the Vatican are that impressive and exhaustive, and they often just don’t know about things. I know a prospective bishop who had fathered a child, but they didn’t know about it, until he told them about it ! There have been a few prospective bishops who have had the sense to ‘fess up before the hands are laid upon them, and withdraw, and save us all a lot of embarrassment. For, I assure you, if there is dirt about, and you put your head above the parapet by becoming a bishop, you will certainly get a face full of crap and be in very choppy waters.

a Scottish Diocese who has brought young man back to his Presbyteries for sex , that I wrote to the Bishop about and didn’t receive a reply. Is it Rome or the UK Nuncio for both? Thanks

You can try both but you will probably get nowhere. You could tell them if they dont act you will send the info to this blog.
