Sydney Morning Herald gives the details the Church won’t. One victim tells it:
Dealing with the church itself was a hell of a lot more traumatic than dealing with the abuse.
Indeed. According to the CathNews report, the Melbourne priest had his liturgical faculties removed, but he continues to serve:
Archbishop of Melbourne, Denis Hart … has repeatedly written letters warning him against working as a priest. Archbishop Hart also acknowledged the pain his victims would experience on learning of the priest’s actions, but has been unwilling to publicise the priest’s name to ensure he can’t act as a priest.
I don’t understand the reticence here. A diocese makes a list of priests who cannot say Mass and serve in ministry. No details are necessary. Every parish gets one. No pastor or deacon or lay administrator hires any priest on the list. It gets passed to other dioceses.
