MELLIFONT ABBEY – DAY 2.

A former Abbot of Mount Mellifont told me personally in the mid 1970s that up until that date he had had 18 sexual liasons / affairs in his time in Mellifont.

He said that he was bisexual and his sexual exploits had been with both men and women.

When in his presence his hands roamed as he attempted to feel the backside and groin areas of his penitents.

His conversation both inside and outside Confession was very sexually charged and he liked to hear the minute details of people’s sins and failures.

He said that he only stopped having sex with people when an unrelated illness prevented him from getting erections.

As a seminarian and young priest I was keenly aware that I was being sexually pursued.

I had no attraction to the man whatsoever and anyway at the time I was deeply repressed and also regarded all such sexual activity as immoral and gravely sinful.

At the time I thought his behaviour was a one off – restricted to him as a “weak” or sinful monk.

At the time we all idolised the Cistercians and regarded them as living saints.

But clearly we see that my monk was not a one off.

The case of Richard Purcell proves that.

And I know of other Cistercian monks who have been sexually active inside and outside The monastery walls.

Purcell is ot the only Irish Cistercian monk to have been homosexually active and visited the Boilerhouse.

I do not know if “my monk” was involved in the impregnation of the woman found in the well.

I have mentioned his name to the priest who told me about the well death.

He has neither denied or affirmed whether he was the one.

In the Middle Ages monasteries were places of utter debauchery.

It looks as if things have not changed that much since.

Except now we have GRINDR and the Boilerhouse.

I also think that monks and their friends had a way in the past of making victims an accusers disappear for ever!

Could that happen now?

I think it could!

I spent many days on retreat in practically all the Cistercian monasteries in Ireland over the decades and never once did any monk proposition me or move close to me. Ever. You and I are almost the same age…….My 2 abusers were non clerics in the 60’s…!! Horrible memories. I had huge involvement in our home parish for years and met many clerics. Not one of them in all my years ever behaved inappropriately. Ever. I know of no priest or religious who served and worked in my home parish to ever have abused or behave improperly. I was stalked at 14/15 years of age by horrible ugly abusers. A Dominican priest saved and redeemed me. We were brought to confession every week by my parents and I expressed to this priest that “I” had done a “bad” thing. He was my saviour. He assured me I was the victim. A wonderful confessor from thereon. Any abuse is a deeply painful reality.

Miss Murphy wrote a book about their affair and turned to the international media when Bishop Casey ceased to provide for their young son.

Pat, I know you felt repressed, fearful and uncertain about many things. We all did back in the 50’s/60’s/70’s: I did but I remember having to resist the advances of a neighbour and one cleric whom I was helping in his rehab programme while a student at 18 years of age. When he tried to bribe me for sex by threatening suicide, I went straight to director of the programme to report his behaviour. I never worked with him again nor had any contact despite his many attempts to do so. Perhaps I was strong within but any person about whom I had suspicions in my early days of ministry – and there were three such cases – I reported to my bishop and to an Gardai. I stayed with the young person and his family and got all relevant counselling for him. The abuser was removed instantly from any church presence but continued to have access to the football club. They were informed by me as to what happened. Subsequently the abuser was caught…My early teenage experiences made me acutely aware of the deviousness of abusers. I’ve had great encounters with many priests and religious all my childhood and teenage years: all very positive (except for one alcoholic priest) and at boarding school for 3 years I only experienced kindness from the De La Salle Brothers….

I have today 15/08/22 checked this up to date information with Heart of England Co-op Funerals.
I assured the said funeral directors, I will be using their services again when the inevitable arrives, however, never again the services of the Roman Catholic Archdioceses of Birmingham, if prayer are requested by family or the deceased wishes are known, prayers of course, will be offered by the family itself.

I have checked, again with the Heart of England Co-op Funerals what the Anglican church locally charge for a funeral service, the Roman Catholic which is five minutes walk from the Anglican church, and of a similar size charges £600. Apparently Church of England charges can vary, my local Anglican church which is quite large, and, is in the Diocese of Coventry.

£112 goes to the Church of England dioceses Coventry,

10.13 Please see my two works : The Church with a Human Face which is an update and extension of my first book Ministry. ” Changes in the forms of ministry never seem to be deliberate in the first place, but only appear as a consequence of social changes in the Church and the world: the rise of a new spirituality, different views of the Church, society, and the world.” From my book The Church with a Human Face, SCM Press LTD., 1985 Chapter 2. The central thesis of my book Ministry is to prove that there is a major change, if not discontinuity, between the way ministry is understood in the first millennium and the way it is understood in the second. I claim that a pneumatological, ecclesial conception which is community or Church-centred in its concerns is replaced by a directly Christological, ontological, sacerdotalising and clerical conception which is privatistic in its orientation. What has happened between the two millennia; It is based on a sacred power of the priest who alone possess it without merit on his part, that is the distinction between the first and second. ( Can be found in The Common And Ministerial Forms Of Priesthood In The Writings Of Karl Rahner And Edward Schillebeeckx, Ponificia Universitas Gregoriana Rome 1995 by William Mulvihill( 143514) Pg 54.

Frank, whoever he is, acts to protect the Cistercians; he is loyal to them. According to the poster at 11.25. Good, but not if it involves betraying others, especially children. Is this really so difficult to understand?

Remember our ultimate loyalty must be to Christ through conscience, not to any priest, bishop, pope, magisterium. Or to any religious order that provides us with employment.

Does Frank know of child abuse by the Cistercians? Or abuse of adults? These are just examples of what Frank might know. If he does, but is keeping silent to protect the Cistercians (and his job?), then he is no different from any other facilitator/enabler of child sexual abuse in the Church.

You may be old enough to remember when nobody thought a priest could abuse a child but any naivety of what priests and monks can get up to has been destroyed.
The monasteries in England which have had child abuse scandals: Ealing, Ampleforth, Buckfast, Downside, Belmont, Cockfosters.
The monasteries in England where there have been dodgy sexual encounters between monks and adults: Worth, Douai, Farnborough, Ampleforth.
Both Ealing and Buckfast elected as abbot a man subsequently convicted of child abuse.
Of course there may be ones I’ve missed.
We KNOW that our previous naivety about these supposed men of God was misplaced so yes, it’s relevant, and you can assume all sorts is going on. Because if they turn a blind eye to child abuse then obviously anything else is okay as well.

Of the Cistercians I haven’t heard anything about Mount St Bernard but the record of Caldey (in Wales so technically outside your question) is public.

Lol, Bishop “Sleepy Joe” Toal has used the Motherwell clerical changes to have a pop at lay people for preferring priests to permanent deacons:
“Having mentioned a couple of our Permanent Deacons, I wish to it make clear that they are Ordained Ministers of the Church, and their ministry very much includes the Celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism and the Distribution of Holy Communion at Mass. No member of the faithful has any right to ask that a priest should baptise or give them Holy Communion rather than a Deacon.”

A woman was murdered in the 1960’s Ireland to hide her pregnancy by monk of Mellifont. The police force of the time together with the local church along with myriad local knowledge conspired to hide the truth. Nothing in terms of restitution is possible now without sworn statement .

No; four choices. You can ask God for healing, and then sit back let your faith crumble into the dust of complete disbelief on realising that either God doesn’t give a damn, or that he just doesn’t exist. Because, unlike your faith in Christ, I can guarantee you that whatever you ask for in faith, with no doubting, you absolutely, categorically, certainly and irrefutably will not receive.😉

Let me help you with this story. Since it has already featured on Pat’s blog I can’t imagine he or William will object to my posting the link to it.
The last few lines are so funny (unintentionally so) and they indicate how much Bill has an over-inflated opinion of himself.
“ I say I am the first priest in Christendom to renounce his baptism which is very serious, “ he said.
“ It actually has a term, it is apostasy. It is very serious – for them. They never suspected I would do this. I am 18 months preparing for this”.
Ok, so the quotes are from The Star but we won’t let that get in the way of a good story.

Thank you – a very interesting story. So essentially he was so fed up with the church’s toleration of abuse that he left. So, when this happens, especially with a middle-aged priest, what happens about things like pensions? If I was to leave my job at 55, having worked for a company for 30 years, I would have a significant deferred pension, which I could draw then or later. Do priests get this? If not then is the default to hang on in there and continue to get some support, while keeping quiet?
