He doesn't have to be a Chester. All that is required is an accusation. No proof is necessary. Nothing needs to be substantiated.

Law enforcement found 6 credible cases among 34 allegations of abuse of minors by the clergy in 2012. Most of the allegations happened in the 1970s and 1980s. The credibility of 15 of the allegations was still under investigation. Law enforcement officials found 12 allegations to be unfounded or unable to be proven, and one was a boundary violation.

Where did they find them? In some cemetery or all over the country. There are a lot of unsolved murders in all 50 states,
does anybody care? Or do we only care about allegations where somone can make some money. You gotta love that all American and catholic justice.

<quoted text>Blessed Mary Angela Parish has the same relic i.e. a drop of JPII's blood and it's not traveling. It stays with the parish. It was given to us by Cardinal Dziwisz last November.
I would not be so proud of Cardinal Dziwisz. A person who does not honor the wishes of his pope after death is worse than a Judas. Worse because he of all people should understand the Judas story. All the priests you write about have done nothing compared to this greatest opportunist of all time. But again from the outside looking in, that is one of the greatest strengths of the Poles, next only to the Irish. If you need proof, look at the Bishops of Buffalo.

These are national figures reported among others by CARA and NCR.

It would appear that the incidents of abuse have dramatically declined in the past 30-40 years. I do not think current younger priests are being dismissed for these horrible crimes. Something else is afoot in the Church. The question is what?

How about the priest from Corpus Christi who allegedly raped a woman and then fled to Poland with the assistance of the Pauline order?
Fr. Mark Laski was his name I think
It is on the Polish News and in the news in Philadelphia, PA.

How did she climb over those high walls around the monastery? Did she get a settlement yet? He doesn't have to be here, she can just make an accusation. There are plenty of shady characters on the east side to worry about. Why not leave those fathers that are working in the worst area of the diocese alone.

Why is it that the comments that make the most sense on this blog and are backed up by facts and statistics are disliked? It's good to have some facts not just anybody's dumb opinion with nothing to back it up.

I am sorry if you are offended by my Dziewisz post . However, He should not have gone off to Poland with the Popes personal papers that the old guy wanted destroyed. Opportunist, like all the others who made carreers and money off of John Paul II, before and aafter he died.
