HOMOSEXUALITY AND CLONLIFFE SEMINARY.

When I was in Clonliffe (1970 – 1973) there was a fair share of homosexuality happening.

Older seminarians, in their 4 th and 5 th years targetted the new seminarians that came in every September.

Peter Meldon ( later ordained but left) was a big culprit.

At one stage the college president, Bishop Joe Carroll, asked a senior seminarian to investigate. I dont know if he ever got an accurate picture.

Peter Meldon continued his behaviour in parish life. This appeared on Facebook after his death:

WERE ALTAR BOYS SEXUALLY ABUSED IN CLONLIFFE BY SEMINARIANS AND PRIESTS?

It was custom for groups of altar boys to visit Clonliffe on Saturdays to encourage them to think of becoming priests.

They were shown aroubd by certain seminarians.

I have received credible reports that some altar boys were abused by seminarians and a priest on these visits.

Some of the abuse happened in Bishop Joe Carroll’s former robing room which had at least one floor to ceiling mirror.

Boys could remember watching themselves being abused in the big mirror.

These matters are known to the Gardai and an investigation took place.

I do not know if compensations with a silence clause have happened?

DUBLIN PRIEST HAVING SEX WITH MALE MINORS.

A senior Dublin priest has been having sex with male minors for many years.

A fellow priest said he has been “lucky” that none of the young boys / men have reported him to the police.

I dont know if he has been reported to the church.

I have let Dermot Farrell know of the allegation through his Safeguarding director but I have no evidence to offer him.

At least he can be aware of it and look into it.

There was a Vincentian priest who knew about other Vincentian priest who abused boys and a deaf girl in confession box. But he kept silent to himself until he passed away. He was a chaplain to deaf community in cork. I thought he was decent priest until a deaf guy told me re him few years ago that I was shocked. Cos he knew it and did nothing re another Vincentian priest. I recall my late parent told me to keep away from him cos of his drink pproblem when I mentioned his name. But it was a lot more than a drink problem that we didn’t know it in the 1st place. His name was printed in Ryan report and also Murphy report (I think). Deaf girl now woman told me her story re that priest in confession box in school for deaf girls.
My question, how many priests out there who knew that other priests of their order or diocese were abusing children/teens but choose to keep silent cos fear of offending their Bishop or bite the hand that feeds him(Bishop paying his salary).

Toying with those they considered their social inferiors. “Courtesy of” their social superiors. What really impresses me about this situation is that there is such a lot of “courtesy”.
With E&W, Ireland and the US so intertwined and all this going on for 50 years, there is obviously a lot more people (including some “lay” people) who know a lot more than they make out.
According to Crash Barry, this was going on in high schools throughout Massachussets since the 1950s. Crash Barry’s audio recordings are very good.
What worries me the most for Rev Marsden and his nemesis Oakley alike, is that they have an “attachment to Rome” (which makes them diplomatic baggage), whereas they would both be better off joining something smaller.

Yesterday a priest made a comment here which was better than priests’ comments usually are about the effect of priests’ abuse. However he then spoiled it by starting whingeing about how people don’t listen to priests and they should have a ‘fair’ say, thereby showing he doesn’t get it.
The voices that actually deserve to be listened to are those of the targets of abuse so since you all keep saying you hate abuse and don’t know what more you can do – read this summary of comments from survivors and let it sink in. Then you might get an effect of the impact of abuse and how arrogant you are to say you get it.

I said nithing which demonstrated any diminishing of the effects of abuse (why would I since i experienced abuse from 12-15 years of age), nor did I infer that my grievances about Church and priesthood are more important than victims/survivors stories. I made the observation that when we try to have honest, rational and intelligent debate about these issues, there’s a perception that we are self absorbed, that we don’t care about anyone else. If this is your perception, that’s your problem but I think you couldn’t care about really serious issues. I don’t need a lecture: I’ve been through abuse, received much counselling later in life and my experience of being part of support, recovery groups has given me the capacity for real empathy and kindness for those hurt, wounded and damaged by their life’s experiences.

While in Clonliffe for 7 years, the divide between junior snd seniir house was very clear. You did not cross over to senior house without permission. We were told about the rules. I never witnessed any propositioning but there were overtures from some guys. When the rules of “freedom” were given most guys went home to their parents daily but had to be back for study time…Looking back I never experienced anything untoward apart from some overtures. Many of us played sport or went to films or theatre in freer leisure time. if there were any activities of a sexual kind, I did not see anything. That isn’t to say there was no sexual activity. The lecturers kept their distance very clearly. Of course the altar servers who visited were always looked after by Tony Walsh – the notorious abuser. It is sad to think that he was the weekly minder of all visiting groups, an activity which seemed to be well monitored. We know now the harm he caused. Pat, I entered seminary after you and at end of our 1st year, freedom with personal responsibility became the norm, which meant that many of us visited our families more frequently alongside pastoral assignments. But, I witnessed overtures of a sexual nature but nothing very overt.

“It always amused me to think that people outside seminary all thought the students were great saints”
People think of priests as altar angels. Society has street angels and house devils. Seminaries do not magically transform people. If you have a strong interest in cars before becoming a priest. You will still have a strong interest in cars after your ordination.
“Christianity is a joke. It’s impossible to live by, so people pretend.”
The Bible and the 10 Commandments are a good moral compass.
The holy spirit is presented as a dove when it is more a wild goose. The host of communion is far removed from what bread is. 🍞 It is some teaching/miscommunication rather than Christianity that is the problem.
“The trick was not being good, but not get caught out being bad. The grand illusion.”

Imposter syndrome is a common thing where a person feels they can’t possibly deserve their success in things like career, family, etc, and so their success feels unreal.
This is not quite what priests get, which is to think that they are ontologically transformed and very special indeed so deserve everything on a plate, can do what they like and shouldn’t be questioned. There isn’t a jargon term for that, beyond being self-satisfied. At it’s extreme it is dangerous, as seen in the way abusive priests use their standing to make people think they couldn’t possibly be abusing.
If more priests were to start thinking they don’t deserve this, and thus got the senss of vulnerability engendered by imposter syndrome, it would be a very good thing for the church and humanity.

The very idea of seminary was very odd to start off with. To seclude a large number of young men at their sexual peak from any contact with women is a recipe for rampant gay sex, even in those who may only be prison gay. To expect anything else is just so far divorced from reality as to be laughable.
And then to add a requirement of no sex and not even masturbation is a recipe to ensure they will go off the rails. To be frank it is surprising that there aren’t more reports of actual atrocities in seminary, so divorced from reality is the concept.
And seminaries were dreamt up by a bunch of clerics with the idea that the seminaries would give the educated Protestants a run for their money! These clerics would all of them have heard confession so have literally no excuse for claiming not to know that their idea could only end in tears.
Now you may say some pious remarks about grace, but since the behaviour of the RC church shows that it is clearly not the recipient or agent of divine grace, there is no hope of this unworkable nightmare not causing scandal and trauma.

A sensible view on seminaries.
The Church has long had a neurotic and frightened opinion of sex. It got it all from the creation myths in Genesis. Woman the great temptress and man the poor vulnerable tempted whose hoses had wills of their own.
All the nonsense about sublimation of sexual deserve by prayer and penance. What a heap of steaming poo!
One way to guarantee rampant solo or partnered sexual activity is to tell young folk not to engage in it. Talk about self-fulfilling prophecy!
One priest told me in confession when I was a teen and had confessed to wanking or someone to pray to our Lady for purity. I had, but it didn’t work. I was as horny as ever. I might as well have prayed to a Celtic water god, or the local butcher for all the good it did. Prayer is a waste of time. It doesn’t work, but people won’t admit this because the churches have them scared into believing that they’ll go to Hell if they say such things.

I remember when I was a young lad going to confession- as I reeled off the usual litany I could tell ‘Fader’ was bored so I decided to spice it up a bit and fessed up to reading porn and having a wank (or two) – well blow me down was the old perv interested then – how many times? Where? Male or female fantasies?

Oh, him ?! Yeah, well I guess he is still having a wank at 6pm most evenings before his tea. Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.

Failed at what 9.48pm? To be a nonce priest? I’d be embarrassed to tell anyone I was RC priest as it’s synonymous with freak or kiddie fiddler.

His room was on St Nicholas corridor. He’d thrust his slender body up against the sink and his legs would buckle as he spilt his load into the sink, tall, lovely blonde lad but a pretty average theologian with his Roman STD… I doubt his bishop material. Repressed his urges but something not quite right with him.

And you succeeded but come here to read salacious stories about your confreres? Call that success? What secrets are you hiding….

I pile on the candy…..
It’s such a pretty sight
It makes the food taste dandy

I’ll put in some ingredients
But keep the rest for me
I’m not just disobedient…
I’m careful, can’t you see?

That’s good he’s apologised and, unreservedly. Thank you Bishop Marcus Stock for not reacting like other Roman Bishops and playing the “chess game” here.
Your apology is well received and is a token of your sincerity as a shepherd x.
Incidentally, I think I read on the blog, recently, the something along the lines:” Younger Bishops are [maybe] more likely to react to these issues [safeguarding] more openly and sincerely”. If this be the case, their certainly is hope; but let’s not jump the gun yet. There is a very, very long way to go.

10.52: MMM: whatever floats your contentment of mind and spirit, I’ll settle for that: I happen to find great contentment in nature: I could live on a river bank, in a forest, on a mountain…by the sea…These places have always inspired me in a “transcendent” way. Strange how these places just enable me to find an inner peace and have raised my sense of the “sacredness” of everyday. The fact that I am inspired religiously by beauty all around me is a deep blessing for me.
