ANOTHER VATICAN CARDINAL ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ABUSE!

Cardinal Ouellet, Vatican official, among clergy accused of abuse in lawsuit

MONTREAL (CNS) — Cardinal Marc Ouellet, prefect of the Vatican Dicastery for Bishops, is named in a list of alleged abusers filed in support of a class-action lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Quebec.

The cardinal, a close adviser to Pope Francis, has been the prefect of the Dicastery for Bishops, formerly the Congregation for Bishops, since 2010. He was appointed to the position by Pope Benedict XVI.

He is accused of actions allegedly committed against a young laywoman who was employed as a pastoral worker in 2008, when the cardinal was archbishop of Quebec. Court documents filed Aug. 16 indicate the actions consisted in “nonconsensual touching of a sexual nature.”

Another bishop appears in the list. Auxiliary Bishop Jean-Paul Labrie, who died in 2001, served in the Quebec Archdiocese from 1977 to 1995. In his case, the alleged abuse occurred in 1968 when he was the superior of the seminary of Saint-Victor de Beauce in Quebec.

The class-action suit was authorized by a judge of the Superior Court of Quebec May 19. It was filed on behalf of all “people having been sexually abused by a member of the diocesan clergy” or “by a religious, a lay pastoral staff member, an employee, and a lay or religious volunteer” under the responsibility of the Quebec Archdiocese between January 1, 1940, and the upcoming ruling in the case.

PAT SAYS

It is a shocking development surely to see a second senior Vatican accused of sexual abuse?

Shocking perhaps, but not unexpected.

Marc Oeullet is in charge of appointing all the bishops in the worldwide RCC.

It does seem, if he is guilty at all, that the accusations against him, are as a judge might say, at the lower end of the scale.

He stands accused of “nonconsensual touching of a sexual nature”.

No one of course should ever engage in such a behaviour against another human being.

It is more shocking when a priest, an indeed an archbishop does it.

It is ot only criminal but a great betrayal of a sacred trust.

We continue to have these revelations day after day for decades now.

There is no indication that they will stop soon.

Ordinary Catholics must now be suffering from severe sexual abuse revelation fatigue.

This new Quebec case is dealing with cases spanning 82 years – nearly a century of abuse.

THE BISHOP OF KILMORE MYSTERY DISAPPEARANCE?

MARTIN HAYES

Nobody has ever explained the sudden disappearance of the new bishop of Kilmore in Cavan.

He came.

He spent a short while.

He disappeared suddenly.

The VG told the priests not to pray for him publicly.

He reappeared suddenly.

No explanation?

“They” were so quiet and mysterious about it, it had all the hallmarks of being suspicious.

We were not even allowed to pray for him !!!!

What’s that about?

Maybe I’m just a suspicious type?

But this one does not lie easy with me.

Any insights out there?

RIP Mark Mooney, it is his 5th anniversary today. He did so much good around the church and is missed by all, especially his fellow sacristans Patrick and Brendan.

Yes. If you have to ask that you still haven’t learned.
1. Revelations of abuse come decades after the event so are playing catch up.
2. The church has reluctantly made the least changes it can when forced by states.
3. Two things have apparently changed: bishops appear not to shuffle round kiddy fiddlers any more, they shuffle round priests accused of dodgy sex with adults instead.
What will come next:
The delay in reporting means reports will continue at the present rate for about another thirty years.
What happens then depends on what is actually happening now with safeguarding.
The revelations about the missions, nuns as sexual objects and churches in developing countries have barely started.
I would predict the next scandals will be more financial stuff, and revelations about possibly people trafficking or drugs.
Did I mention that the church is actually a criminal organization?

9.08 Everything is ok here except for what is not ok. Thank you very much for your concern. I don’t usually have a problem with people coming unannounced to see the house, but these two were acting strange and after I spoke to them they took off in a hurry. It’s all recorded on security cameras. What really bothers me now is the fact that someone has been sending some extremely personal details on my medical history to Pat which obviously will not be published. The only way the person who sent the comment could have known those particular details about me is from Fr Ger Fitzgerald. This means that Fr Ger Fitzgerald & Ennis Co. have been very busy trying to smear my reputation. I would expect nothing less from a corrupt priest and his like minded friends. It is just further confirmation of his true character and intentions.
Interesting that Fr Ger related a story in his new history booklet about a priest who was accused of having an “immoral relationship” with a woman. I wonder what made him include that bit—did he find it somewhat cathartic? Ger also had the chutzpah to mention Bishop Monahan in his booklet. I wonder what Fintan makes of that…I am sure Fintan does not appreciate the mention… after all, wasn’t Fr Ger the one who said that Fintan was “cowardly but nice”?

12.37 I have no concrete proof that Killaloe is spying on me so there’s no point in ringing the guards.

12.42 Thank you. It is a serious matter. Pat and I are in regular contact. If anything happens to me at the hands of Fr Ger or his cohorts, then Pat will be the first to know. On second thought, I don’t think Ger actually has the guts to come after me himself; he uses his minions for the dirty work as evidenced by the anonymous unpublished comment sent to the blog today. A priest who would share such personal information about a parishioner in his Diocese is beyond reproach and beyond rehabilitation yet here he is still employed by Killaloe Diocese™️ and collecting his pay check. I don’t think Fr Ger has any intention of leaving the RCC. I hope he makes the most of it while the proverbial sun still shines…his day of reckoning will come.

Do not be fooled by Fr Ger’s egregious behaviour…he is a fake and a coward…he will do anything in his power to keep people from knowing the truth about him. I am not afraid of the truth.

How this works in reality is that parents who make an effort to be socially connected to the adults in contact with their children, actually increase the likelihood of them being abused, not decrease it.

Like

12.30 From the website that I linked earlier to my comment: “Lists are contentious, especially in Ireland. Many have told us that this list is a risky thing. The Christian Brothers notoriously took legal action to prevent the naming of names in the Ryan Report. The names of accused priests usually appear in the Irish press only if the priest is convicted in a criminal court. Elsewhere in Europe, even convicted child molesters enjoy anonymity. This is very different from the situation in the U.S., where the parties in a civil suit are often publicly known. As a result, we have nearly 4,500 accused priests in our database, though only 500 or so have been criminally charged, let alone convicted.”
When I said that I wasn’t sure if the E.U. data protection laws would allow such a database, it was after reading the above in regards to priests who have been accused of crimes but not convicted. I do not claim to be an expert on E.U. laws and regulations. I have only lived in Ireland full-time since 2020. What exactly is your gripe with me? I do not take kindly to anonymous blog comments that are in my eyes clearly designed to denigrate me.

The Vatican has announced that no canonical investigation will be opened into the sexual assault accusation against Cardinal Ouellet.
The Holy See says that there are not sufficient grounds for an investigation based on a written report and a Zoom interview with the alleged victim.
The decision comes at the recommendation of Jacques Servais SJ, who was chosen to conduct the investigation of Cardinal Ouellet.
It just so happens that Servais and Ouellet were part of The Lubac-Balthasar-Speyr Association (along with Fr. Fessio and Cardinal Schönborn).
Servais has no canonical or any investigative training; he’s a theologian and runs a house of studies in Rome.
So, in brilliant Vatican style, a sweetheart “investigator” with a clear conflict of interest conducts one Zoom interview in 18 months, and — voila! — decides that nothing further is warranted.

6.10: Pat, why are we subjected to Bill’s ridiculous petulance, mood swings, irrelevant personal history and his narcissistic diaries? You are tolerating his bullying behaviour and also, remember what happened to MC, who, having been goaded, tormented, ridiculed, mocked and scorned, went totally OTT. Facilitating the self destructive behaviour of any individual is morally reprehensible. It’s an abuse. Let him comment on the issues of the day but do not let him have unquestioning access to say what he likes. I am shocked that Bill, with his intelligence, believes that he has to share so much of his personal life’s history. I am equally shocked that, yet again, the very serious issues which need debating are overshadowed by Bill’s needs and obsessions. And we were told by a “religion” teacher recently that he encouraged his students to read your blog!! Jesus definitely weeps. Who wants to know about his finances? His family must be embarrassed.

Pat, even though fairly new to your blog, I’m struck by the distracting influence of William Mulvihill. Very many of his comments today are not about the blog topic, but about William himself, and this has encouraged others to comment off-topic, too.

I enjoy your blog: it stretches my intellect, and it has increased my store of knowledge. But, with respect, it could do with disciplne from you, as moderator, to restore order by having commenters stay on-topic in future.

That is very unfair, Tony. The commentor at 7.10, like me, is not trying to muzzle William, but to have him stick to the blog topic; frankly, William is all over the place. Like the Pied Piper, he is taking too many commentors with him. What’s the point of inviting discussion of a topic while similtaneously allowing people to write about whatever they like.
I understand Pat’s not wanting to appear to be another ‘domineering’ bishop; God knows there are more than enough of them. But, surely, there is a balance to be struck? Going from one extreme (dominance) to its near opposite (being too lax) misses that balance by a wide mark.
