Some things change; Some things stay the same

July 16, 2009

The Jesuit provincial, Tim McMahon, lives with the Jesuit abuser, Daniel O’Connell — after I was found credible. That’s the equivalent to a perp priest living with his bishop…..

What stays the same:   protection of perps,  allowing more chances, and lying about it.

What changes:

I heard back from my bishop right away (even though nothing happened here, except me).  My bishop is the kind of priest who is with people, not at some distant, higher place away.   He was a willing witness for me in the Jesuit investigations in 2003.  And once again, he offered help.

He told me to contact the provincial again, and then the Apostolic Nuncio if  don’t hear back, and told me how to reach the Apostolic Nuncio.

It’s a lousy journey — it always has been, with this Jesuit — but I don’t ever overlook the kindnesses of other people.
