HAD DLF GOT HIS OWN “DR MENGELE” NOW?

COMNEN

If DERMOT LEDWITH FARRELL is forcing sick priests to consult an archdiocesan medic – it raises very serious questions about human rights and medical privilege and privacy!

If he is forcing priests to be medically assessed with an obligatory HIV test it is a reach of human rights and medical privilege.

An unknown, but not tiny, number of Dublin priests are HIV+.

There is absolutely no reason why DLF would be entitled to that private information.

It’s simply none of his business!

AM IMPORTANT COMMENT FROM YESTERDAY’S BLOG

Medical Privilege/Clerical Confidentiality.says:
May 26, 2022 at 11:00 am

In light of the comments made by “AB’ House” at 08:04 if it is true that Archbishop Farrell will not accept the professional recommendations of independent clinical professionals that is a very serious situation for the priests of the Archdiocese of Dublin.


It would be incredibly STUPID for any priest to agree to be assessed by a doctor/psychologist/psychiatrist CHOSEN by the Archdiocese of Dublin or any other diocese for that matter without the following safeguards.


It would behove any priest who is requested by his Ordinary to undertake any kind of evaluation to have a written undertaking that the consultation will be subject to medical privilege between the cleric and the medical/clinical professional.


This undertaking should be confirmed in writing by the diocesan solicitor on behalf the Ordinary. Of course, the Ordinary will refuse to give such an undertaking via his solicitor because he will be bound in law. However, compromise is always advisable; the cleric should settle for an agreement where the Ordinary signs a document recognising the existence of the medical privilege. Within any document that signed it should be acknowledged by all parties that the “findings” of the consultation are to remain confidential at all times.

The document should explicitly acknowledge that any report produced cannot be released to the Ordinary under any circumstances without the written and witnessed consent of the cleric. It is appropriate to remind readers that when the reputation of a priest is at stake — Canon Law for certain juridical acts — requires the attestation of a priest notary. If the matter is potentially going to be contentious — then the priest should insist upon the involvement of a legal professional.
The cleric needs to navigate the difficult balance between threats from his Ordinary that failure to undertake the assessment could constitute disobedience with the adage that obedience is owed to the Ordinary in everything that is lawful and just.


And the “chosen” medical/clinical professional must further confirm in writing that the consultation and the report that emanate from same will remain at all times confidential and subject to clinical confidentiality, unless the cleric gives written consent for the report to be shared with the Ordinary. In heels is totally unacceptable.


If the cleric does not take positive steps to protect his good name and reputation he is (potentially) in the most naïve manner imaginable facilitating and providing potentially justification for Farrell to suspend/remove his faculties by a Decree. Because it would be foolish to think that Archbishop Farrell would act at any time in the best interests of any cleric in a contentious matter

And if the matter is sufficiently serious (a delict) the medical evidence obtained (with the consent of the cleric) if it is not subject to privilege can be utilised/weaponised in an administrative/judicial penal process. In the United States, priests that are not economically productive their lack of productivity to preserve the patrimony of the diocese has been used as a justification for laicisation.


I completely agree with his final observation that Farrell is only interested in money.

When PADDY WALSH came after me in D& in 1998, I refused to communicate with him except through my solicitor.

That sent Walsh around the bend and I hot no letters afterwards.

Priests – if DLF or any other bishop pursues you find a good Protestant or Humanist solicitor and hide behind his shirt

He can make a lot of trouble for your bishop.

Pat, it would be more professional of you if you just referred to Archbishop Farrell without the “L”. I think it’s grossly unfair and unkind of you. Respect is not a huge ask of you. That aside, if what’s reported or alleged about the Archbishop requesting professional medical assessment by his chosen “doctors”, then I consider this as outrageous and a violation of human rights. The proposal must be repudiated by every cleric in the Diocese. If the Archbishop doesn’t trust the individual priest’s doctor or therapist, he has no right to force any procedure on a priest. That’s a complete abuse of power and authority. If a priest is absent for long periods and availing of medical certificates, the correct approach should be one of ensuring that such a priest is helped, supported and enabled back into ministry, if possible. There may well be a case for challenging particular priests about their absence for long periods, but threatening guys with accessing all medical information is vicious and sinister. I am shocked that the Archbishop would countenance such a scenario. God help us. Again Pat, desist from insulting the Archbishop.

Is the archdiocese not simply using the occupational health procedure that they would use for a lay employee who was unwell? An occupational health doctor is an expert on function in the work context and their report would supplement the sick notes and letters provided by the GP of a priest. That’s the theory, anyway. It’s the norm in lay employment and will be difficult for clergy to adjust to if things have not usually been done this way in the past.
However, in lay employment, workers have recourse to protection from their unions, which counterbalance the power of the bosses. That’s not the case when an individual priest is facing a mighty diocesan machine. Priests need urgently to gain employment rights as well as responsibilities. The ACP could have done that but its focus is too much on changing doctrine and on moaning. A clerical branch in a lay trade union is what’s needed.

Any clergy undergoing assessments with health professionals will find they have given consent to the assessments and any disclosure of information in the consent forms they will have signed first. That’s how it works.

Like

Exactly, 12:25am. An occupational health assessment would only be undertaken with the subject’s written consent and only disclosed to third parties with the subject’s consent. A priest could decline consent in either or both circumstances but the diocese would be entitled to view that as non-cooperation and proceed without the OT evidence and give weight to the non-cooperation. I suppose an issue here is that the Church in such circumstances is behaving like a business and priests might think this is contrary to the usual warm words about compassion, mercy and pastoral accompaniment.

Like

Surely nobody in their right mind can have sufficient cognitive dissonance to believe those warm words by now?!!
I think that in occupational health even if the subject doesn’t consent to the details of their health being disclosed to the employer they could still agree to the advisor making recommendations. I suppose it would be up to the employer to decide how they view this and obviously the church would be very fast to see that as being uncooperative like you say.

I agree with the commentator at 10.04 am that those in positions of authority within the Church really dislike having to litigate before the secular courts. And, I agree that if their reputation is being threatened or if their chances at further ecclesiastical preferment is compromised they will come to a prompt settlement. Also, it is the case that the vast majority of dioceses in Ireland are in a precarious financial state, so they can ill-afford to be squandering precious resources on an internal dispute.

It has been fairly pointed out in the comments that the cost of retaining a solicitor and (if necessary) having counsel instructed is expensive. For some priests this may be an insurmountable obstacle because they will balk at the cost. However, it is also the case that if a priest is in difficulty with his Ordinary, he can ill-afford NOT to have his interests protected. I would suggest it is a prudent investment in his priesthood.

I would hope that those who are contemplating the priesthood – those in the seminary, and those who have been ordained realise that they are on their own. Under no circumstances can any cleric today operate under the misguided illusion that their best interests will be protected by their Ordinary, and that the Ordinary will act with integrity.

Furthermore, Ordinaries, do not like being their non-existent authority been challenged. And for any priest who pushes back against the unreasonableness of his ecclesiastical superior can anticipate on-going retaliatory zeal from his Ordinary for a considerable period of time in the future. That is the harsh and hard reality.

Boston cardinal tells Italian bishops ‘facing truth’ is only way to tackle abuse
By Inés San Martín

“ROME – As the Italian bishops’ conference debates this week how to best address the clerical sexual abuse crisis and the calls for a nationwide investigation, Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, head of the papal commission for the protection of children, told them that the only way forward is with the truth.Speaking from experience, as he has spent much of the past 40 years addressing the scandals, O’Malley said, “We have nothing to fear by telling the truth. The truth will set us free. Acknowledging people’s stories of abuse, listening to survivors and committing to working together is not easy,” but “it is the only way.”

What on earth is going on in the world? Priests, masturbating in public, spray painting homophobic graffiti on houses, filling fraudulent forms in, sleeping with each other, living in their boyfriends house. Why does the bishops not act?

People on here complaining about their priests. They should come to my parish. The priest has three Alsatian dogs in the house and they go bonkers when anyone goes near the office. I was there to try and get an anniversary mass said and left terrified. Maybe he’s doing that to keep us all away?

Many employers require medical tests of employees and co-operation with the employer’s chosen occupational health provider is a matter of disciplinary at gross misconduct level for those not cooperative.
The Holy Goat has nothing to hide. Bring on the tests. But be warned, if I am treated as an employee I will report to Revenue as an employee.

Sick of this emergency phone. What part of emergency do these plebs not understand. Had a simple woman ring up to ask me could she book a baptism and that it was an emergency as she has forgot to do it last month.

Italian Bishops to Examine Clerical Abuse, but Only to a Point
(ITALY) New York Times May 27, 2022 By Elisabetta Povoledo
“The Italian Bishops’ Conference on Friday presented its plan to investigate clerical abuse, but critics say it is insufficient and disappointing.Italian bishops said on Friday that they would carry out a long-demanded investigation into clerical sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable persons, but victims and their advocates immediately said the plan fell short of what was needed.Seeking to address the concerns about the revelations of abuse that have devastated the church worldwide, the bishops announced that they would commission a report examining cases from 2020-21, to be published in November, as well as a second report that would analyze how clerical abuse had been handled in Italy in the past two decades.”

There is still time on this Friday night for people to pray a decade of the rosary. Today is Sorrowful.

MEMORARE
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen.

9.49: The word “despise” is very wrongly used all too often. We may “dislike” someone as I’m sure bishops do. Pat strongly dislikes many but I would never accuse him of “despising” anyone. Despite my abhorrence of some of Pat’s annunciations, I would not and do not despise him.
