Timothy Schlenz is now 39.
As a boy of 8 he was abused every Saturday – by Father Carleton Parker Jones – a Dominican.
Eventually he spoke of his abuse but tge Dominican Order had “disaspeared” Jones.
Jones told the boy he was checking his genitals for cancer as an excuse for tge abuse.
He even heard young Timothy’s confession and young Timothy confessed the “sin” he had committed to the abuser.
The Dominicans exonerated Jones and have since hidden him.
Timothy started law cases against the churchin 2018.

CATHOLIC MASS ATTENDANCE
These are very interesting and very telling stats about Mass going – especially the Irish ones.
15% of Irish Catholics go to Mass regularly and 85% do not.
In 1958 91% of Irish Catholics went to Mass.
Thats a drop of 76%.
Apart from other considerations, its a sign that many Catholics have copped on to the fact the Roman Church is corrupt.
And that 15% will soon drop lower.
We will soon get to France’s 3% or Canada’s 2 %.
In recent visits to France you find one okd priest in charge of 15 to 20 parishes.
At Sunday Mass you will find an old priest celebrating Mass for two or three old ladies.
Some years ago I had a wedding and a baptism for an Irish family one Sunday.
We had full use of the parish church with the permission of the local mayor. They see a priest and Mass once every three months.
The hierarchy and clergy have brought these affairs on themselves.
People are voting with their feet and the 67-year-old Farrell will make absolutely no difference – especially if he calls same sex lovers “THINGS”
