Papal Apology Evokes Bloggers
From Agnostics-Library blog:
Pope Benedict XVI has come one tiny step closer to contrition over the Catholic clerical abuse scandal, and asked for forgiveness, as the New York Times reports. Even so, the Pope could not help but try to evade responsibility for everything that happened. The pope said the Devil was behind the scandal, saying it had emerged now, in the middle of the Vatican’s Year of the Priest, because “the enemy," or the Devil, wants to see “God driven out of the world.” The Vatican’s thinking implicit behind everything that’s happened … this is not really a failing of the Church and by the Church. It is, instead, an external affliction, imposed on the Church from outside it, by the Devil; in other words, it’s part of an ongoing spiritual struggle between the godly Church and the Forces of Darkness, and it’s the clergy who are its real victims ( Read Entire Blog Post Here )
From WORLD OPINION BLOG
As the celebratory “Year of the Priest” draws to a close, the pope had this to say last Friday, June 11: “It was to be expected that this new radiance of the priesthood would not be pleasing to the ‘enemy,’” Benedict XVI said. “He would have rather preferred to see it disappear, so that God would ultimately be driven out of the world.” The term “the enemy” is a traditional Catholic way of referring to the Devil. [From AP newswire.]
Translated from the traditional gobbledygook, the pope is saying the devil made the pedophile priests do it so people would turn their backs on God, who is represented on earth by the one, holy and apostolic Catholic Church.
If anyone knows about pedophiles in the church, it is Joseph Ratzinger (his real name, or just-plain-Bennie), himself. ( Continue Reading Here )

Summertime is movie time.
Check the nearly 300 shows currently listed starting with Part I: Clerical Comedies. I’ve left out all the pro-Church syrupy schmaltz that I can. No Sister Act or Going My Way here, folks. Most of this stuff would get you into trouble with the Legion of Decency, which is kinda the point So if you’re bored with reruns and the same old stuff on can-- (Continue reading here)
ALSO FROM JAY NELSON:
Where are the perps now?
BINGO! Found 'em!
This page from the Society of the Divine Word's Office of Education, Recruitment and Formation, (whoever they are) has a little list. Enough of these institutions are clergy-mills run by the Servants of the Paraclete and other known enablers like the Guest House, that I think this list might just be for clergy only, even though some places, like The Meadows and Hazelden, handle other types of patients.But there are places I've never heard of in Massachusetts, Michigan, California, Connecticut, and a bunch in Missouri...Check it out here

Opus Bono Sacerdotii (work for the good of the priesthood) was founded in response to many sensitive situations with priests around the world requesting unique assistance to confidential problems. These problems may encompass a whole spectrum of circumstances, however, the success in finding solutions is understanding the uniqueness of each individual and their particular needs, abilities and desires especially as it effects the extraordinary relationship between the natural and supernatural aspect of the person of the priest. Opus Bono Sacerdotii is a Catholic charity that in partnership with our benefactors, assist bishops, religious superiors, and Vatican officials in finding solutions for the proper care and treatment of priests who are the most troubled, tempted, discouraged and suffering in their personal lives and priestly ministry. In the past eight years since our founding we have been contacted by over 5,000 priests and many bishops, including the Holy See (From this recovery "troubled" priest organization's newsroom: Accused Catholic Priests Left in Limbo

FROM BOSTON, Sunday's Press Event to
Remove Cardinal Bernard Law
Ruth Moore Took Pictures Shown Here and Delivered This Speech:
We stand here today in solidarity calling out in one loud voice:
On November 4th of 2002 nearly 8 yrs ago, as we stood here on this very sidewalk calling out “Law Must Go."
Cardinal Bernard Francis Law apologized and asked for forgiveness to those attending Sunday Mass. The media interviewed several of us after mass that day asking if we could forgive Cardinal Law.
My answer then is the same today, “I will forgive him when he is in jail serving time for the crimes he has committed.”
Our elation that justice would be served by Law’s resignation and departure from Boston was short lived.
It was impossible to foresee that Bernard Law would be summoned to Rome by the Pope and elevated a prestigious position within the Vatican.
What a slap in the face his promotion was not only for those of us here in Boston but for all of humanity, past, present and those yet to be born.
A fire continues to burn from within over this insult. It is an outrage of historic proportions that at this very moment, Cardinal Law who stood by while thousands of children were raped and sodomized continues to live a life of prestige and luxury in the heart of Rome.
We pledge not to forget, that each day, thousands of victims from all corners of the World, continue to suffer. We also pledge to continue to call out yet again and again from the center of our being -
REMOVE LAW NOW!!!!!
In closing I would like to read a short poem by Vinnie Nauheimer in remembrance of this ongoing tragedy (Moore then read this poem).
Ritual Rite of No Return
By Vinnie Nauheimer, 2004
I see the flickering candle light;
Hear agonizing screams through the night.
Sacred objects used to defile;
Nodding approval the evil smile.
Contorted faces come back to haunt;
Yes, we did this to you they taunt
Keeping me silent was their aim
Heaped upon me, the burden of shame.
I was there for their pleasure.
Pain I suffered knew no measure.
That was their prize, their lasting treasure;
Pain doled out at their leisure.
This brand of evil knows no bounds
Over my body they made their rounds.
In the depths of their depravity
They violated my every cavity.
Crucifixes, candles and a whole lot worse;
How can grown people be so perverse?
Who would believe such evil can exist
Operating freely, living in our midst?

STTOP Event In Boston Globe:
A dozen people protesting sexual abuse by clergy picketed in front of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross as Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley said Mass inside. O’Malley honored couples celebrating their 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries this year and stressed to them the importance of commitment.
Protesters have appeared at the cathedral most Sundays for the past eight years.
The pickets, many from a group called Call to Action Boston, held signs bearing photographs and names of children who have said they were sexually abused by clergy.
