The Dallas Blog reported on a story last week about the president of the Jesuits Order in the United States of America. It was disclosed that Rev. Smolich had a roommate when he lived in the Los Gatos Jesuits Provincial House in California, who was arrested for molesting a disabled boy in his bedroom. The alleged assailant was Fr. Mariano.
Fr. Smolich faced scrutiny for telling the media that he was “unaware” of the crimes committed by Fr. Mariano at the Los Gatos residence. For his public denial, the Jesuit gave him a promotion. Yet, did Rev. Smolich really have “ignorance” of crimes committed in the Los Gatos Jesuit Palace?
Apparently, a Jesuit priest, who identifies himself as RR who resides in a Jesuit resident in Clarkston, Michigan and claims to be “waiting to die,” explained that Smolich was likely ignorant of alleged crimes committed in Los Gatos, while he resided there.
RR wrote, “it is strictly forbidden for one religious to enter the room of another without permission of a superior or extreme necessity such as a health issue.”
Hence, this would explain how some convicted pedophile priests committed their crime sprees inside a Jesuit residence. The regulation protected them from other religious attempting to stop their crimes inside their bedrooms.
Meanwhile, Monsignor Stephen J. Rossetti, a clinical psychologist professor and former president of St. Luke’s Treatment Center, explained that doctors treating pedophile priests in the Silver Springs medical facility did not communicate with the Jesuit’s lead internal investigator of Sex Misconduct cases in North America during the years of 2003-2007.
The Dallas Blog asked Rossetti about Rev. James P. Gshwend, who was appointed head Jesuit investigator in 2003-2007. At the time, Rossetti was president of St. Luke’s. Rossetti confessed he did not communicate with Gshwend about treatment programs for pedophile priests. When asked about the Jesuit investigator, Rossetti responded, “I don’t know” him.

All these sex abuse treatments are a waste of time, since 1947 thay have not worked. The Jesuits need to STOP their sex abuse NOW. What needs to happen is Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois needs to be shut down ASAP, just like the public school in Califorina and then staffed with all new people who get real background checks and NO Jesuits. It would be a good start. Remember Fr. Gschwend was Dean of Students there.

Fr. Angel Crisostomo Mariano may have returned to the Philippines.
Fr. Angel Crisostomo Mariano, 55 a transvestite Jesuit priest and a Philippine native, was one of six Jesuits caught up in a Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal. As many as six Jesuits allegedly abused two disabled lifetime employees of the Jesuit Order at the Jesuit retirement home in Los Gatos, California. The Jesuit Order avoided a trial by paying $7 million.
Fr. Mariano was additionally convicted after a report of oral sex with a 17-year-old boy he met in an Internet chat room where Fr. Mariano posed as a woman. Mariano spent five months in jail.

"This is a difficult time for everyone," Father Gschwend said. "We treat the victims with the greatest care and compassion when they come to us. We do the same with the one accused. It is a very difficult place for both of them to be."
The Jesuits don't know the 1st thing about treating their victims of sexual abuse with "the greatest care and compassion." The truth is they stonewall the victim and drag on the process for years.
In many cases the stonewalling process is far worse than the actual sex abuse.
When the Jesuits finally acknowledge the victim, they do so with such arrogance it a very disgusting experience.
Their Press Releases contain words that are not sincere and offer nothing to apologize to a victim or STOP the sex abuse. They continue to cover-up.

Since we are approaching Easter, Catholics need to pray for Jesus to return and create a NEW Church as the present Catholic church is such an embarrassment. The faithful need leadership that doesn't have such sick lifestyles and then cover them up when they get caught.
