SPANISH JESUITS ABUSED 81 CHILDREN AND 21 ADULTS SINCE 1927.

The Spanish branch of the Jesuits have admitted that 96 Jesuits have abused children and adults since 1927.

81 of the victims were children and 21 were adults.

Most of the abuse took place in schools run by the Jesuits.

A look at bishopaccountability.org also shows a major problem with Jesuit abuse in the USA.

One Jesuit Donald McGuire sexually abused one boy 1,000 times!

Career, Accusations of Abuse, Information Sources, and Documents

This webpage gathers information about Rev. Donald J. McGuire, a convicted serial pedophile whom the Jesuits allowed to continue functioning as a priest for 35 years after they first received allegations in the late 1960s. The page includes a chronology of McGuire’s career and the allegations against him; collections of media reports and legal filings; and an archive of Jesuit documents and complaints by parents. In addition, this page is linked with two accounts of McGuire’s career: a detailed assignment record prepared by BishopAccountability.org and a timeline of McGuire’s career prepared by the law firm of Kerns, Pitrof, & Pearlman.

McGuire worked as a teacher at the Jesuit’s Loyola Academy in Chicago and at San Francisco University, and as a prolific retreat master. He gave retreats for aspiring diocesan priests, and for many years was spiritual director for the Carmelite Sisters and the Missionaries of Charity, whose leader and founder, Mother Theresa, selected McGuire to be her confessor. Through his Mission FIDES organization, McGuire organized and led Ignatian retreats for lay people. He collaborated with EWTN in the early 1980s and was chaplain of the National Federation of Catholic Physicians in the early to mid-1990s. McGuire preyed upon his students and upon boys in the devout families who attended and funded his Ignatian retreats, especially ones who acted as his personal assistants.

The McGuire cases are significant for many reasons: for the number of his victims; for the duration and severity of the abuse; for the callous dishonesty of the Jesuit order in ignoring complaints; for McGuire’s arrogant manipulation of Catholic families’ faith and trust; and for his national and international travels while abusing his victims. McGuire has been charged in federal court with “traveling in interstate and foreign commerce for the purpose of engaging in a sexual act with a minor.”

Career of Donald J. McGuire, S.J.

The following table presents information on McGuire’s Jesuit assignments and on the allegations against him. See also our detailed McGuire assignment record with links to legal complaints, media reports, and other sources of information.

Eleven victims of McGuire are currently known; some were abused hundreds of times. Pornography and confession were used in the grooming and abuse, and the victims were often transported across state and international boundaries. Abuse included digital penetration and forced oral sex.

McGuire’s career as priest and predator falls into two phases – an academic phase 1954-81 during which McGuire taught high school and college, with interludes to acquire advanced degrees; and a spiritual direction phase 1981-2003 during which he traveled extensively directing retreats and providing advice to nuns, priests, and lay people. In the transition 1970-83 between these two phases, after the Jesuits were informed of McGuire’s abuse of John Doe 84 in 1969, McGuire worked as an educational consultant and was involved in several experiments in liberal education.

McGuire’s MO was to isolate his targets by arranging for them to live with him and travel with him. In the academic phase, he would present this isolation as academically beneficial. In the retreat phase, the boys were often given a non-paying year-long position as his assistant. McGuire’s status among his followers as a sickly saint provided the rationale for such assistance. Once with him, the boys were plied with pornography and discouraged from maintaining close contact with their parents. Using this technique, McGuire was often able to abuse a victim hundreds of times before moving on to the next boy. His peripatetic schedule (dozens of out-of-state and foreign retreats each year) constantly shifted the victims away from persons likely to notice or object. McGuire was also adept at cultivating relationships with orthodox nuns and lay people who would be impressed by his status with Mother Theresa and less inclined to scrutinize his arrangements with his assistants. “We were mistaken and perhaps taken in by our own pride,” wrote one victim’s father.

Although McGuire’s emphasis changed from academic to spiritual over the years, the spiritual element was present in early arrangements and the academic element may be seen in later ones. McGuire was doing retreats as early as the mid-1960s, and to his early academic victims he posed as a counselor. The earliest person known to have been victimized on a retreat (Individual G) was abused in the late 1970s, well before McGuire’s retreat mill was in full production. Likewise, McGuire maintained the academic approach late into his career, as a method to impress parents and victims. Victim 8, who was abused 1999-2003, delayed college and stayed with McGuire to pursue his studies with the priest.

In the table below, the victim’s names are linked to a more detailed account with links to documents and other sources. Below the table on this page, we have assembled collections of media reports and legal filings; and an archive of Jesuit documents and complaints by parents.

Currently, we are battling against the Coronavirus.

But we are still experiencing the effects of another horrible pandemic – the pandemic of Roman Catholic priests, sisters and brothers sexualky abusing the young and the vulnerable.

Recently the Spanish Jesuits have held up their hands.

Before that the Jesuits in the USA held up their hands and have gone public about their abusing members.

Take a look at bishopaccoubtability.org

There’s something very odd here. To become a Jesuit takes a lot of sustained academic effort, and there are much easier ways for sexual predators to get ordained. Firstly, you have the abusive priest who is mentally disturbed, and is probably misusing alcohol and drugs as well. Witness Fr Dunstan of Downside Abbey, who used someone else’s credit card and the school computer to access porn involving little boys -but Benedictine monasteries can ordain any of their monks, even one who is caught masturbatingi n his car while watching parents collecting their children from school. Secondly, you have the straightforward paedophile who tricks himself into the priesthood so as to get access to children, like Brendan Smyth. BUT thirdly, you have people like McGuire who study hard for years, then put enormous effort into becoming spiritual teachers-and yet are systematic sexual abusers. Both the RCC and its enemies need to concentrate their efforts in understanding what is going on here.

Jesuits in the UK ? I seem to remember they had a problem at Stonyhurst and the nearby prep schools, St Mary’s Hall? One of their ex-Provincials and ex-Stonyhurst heads, Jock Earle, was accused of abusing school boys, along with a number of others. I seem to recall that his trial was halted at the last minute, and he went to carry on with ministry, dying something like 2003. I’m not sure whether that would be the case today, because I think the accusations were pretty strong and it was some legal, technical business that stopped the trial. This article
( https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/6088387.probe-called-sex-case-collapses/)
gives a flavour of how serious were the charges, and the fact that other accusations against him had been made and covered up by the Jesuits, the school, and the family. It is surprising that he was allowed to carry on in ministry after this, but perhaps they are different times ? In the interests of transparency, I have to say that I do have a lingering resentment about Earle; when a boy at my prep school he came to interview boys for admission to Stonyhurst, me being one of them. Yes, I got in but went on to somewhere much grander in the end ! However, I remember on a Sunday morning we had a pillow fight in the dormitory, and we disturbed Earle’s sleep in. The next day we were summonsed to the headmaster’s office and beaten with the belt for our impertinence. I was never a fan of Earl after that, no matter how much the obituaries lionised him !

I think the question about getting into the Jesuits is fairly simply answered. Paedophiles are frequently intelligent and also function in a fractured way which helps them rationalise what they do. So it wouldn’t be wildly unrealistic for a paedophile to believe he is serving God and his prolific abuse is merely a little problem.

Evangelist Malcolm Muggeridge’s “Something Beautiful for God” BBC documentary started the whole charade of seeking to lionise Agnes Bojaxhiu (M. Theresa), who preferred to keep poor Indian women in the poverty of excessive childbirth by denouncing contraception as the moral equivalent of abortion which she described as murder.
And “Holy Mother Church” that self glorifying and self perpetuating cabal, seeks to “canonise ” her!
