WATERFORD PRIEST'S CASE

Image result for diocese waterford and lismore

THERE ARE QUESTIONS THAT ARISE FOR THE DIOCESE OF WATERFORD AND LISMORE WITH REGARD A HISTORIC CASE IN THE DIOCESE.

The priest in question is Michael O'Connor who is the former president of St John's College and a former parish priest of the diocese.



Father O'Connor suddenly and inexplicably disappeared from ministry quite a few years ago but a number of people, including priests of the diocese, are concerned that the circumstances of his case were never revealed to the civil authorities.

In such circumstances there would be a real danger that his situation has not and is not being monitored?

As far as we know Father O'Connor was involved in an incident in a family home he was visiting.

Some say this home was in Waterford. Others say that it happened in the USA during a summer holiday.

In any event the civil authorities in the area in which the incident occurred should have been informed.

It is also unknown if the O'Connor case has been included in the reports on Waterford and Lismore diocese to the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church ( NBSCCC )




One parish priest of Waterford told me that my old friend Monsignor John Shine was the "go between man" between the family involved and the then Bishop of Waterford. The PP also told me that a sizeable amount of money was paid to the family. 

Apparently Father O'Connor was then rehoused by Waterford Diocese in the grounds of St John's College and continues living there to this day.

The current Bishop of Waterford - MY DEAR FRIEND - PHONSIE CULLINAN - lives in the same grounds.


PHONSIE
We are told that the Catholic Church in Ireland is being ABSOLUTELY OPEN AND HONEST about all HISTORIC and CURRENT cases in their dioceses and religious orders. 

I really hope that this is the case.

I really hope that happened in the Waterford / O'Connor case.

I any event I have informed the Waterford authorities. If they did not know they now do. If they did know then no harm done. 

There was certainly a media black out of the case.

  1. Clearly, it is much more desirable to have Bishop Buckley as a friend than an enemy.

    1. I've known Pat for many years. He is a most loyal friend and a formidable enemy. I'm afraid that Phonsie has placed himself on the wrong side of the pitch! Of course we all know Phonsie is a light weight in every sense. Dublin PP.

    1. Phonsie threw a complete wobbler that day and his face was black with anger.

      He left himself shaking and had a glass of water brought to him.

    1. Saddening the estimated number of babies is in the 700.s I believe. Allegedly babies of unmarried mothers may have been treated worse than those of married mothers. Was there a malevolent attitude of dispicability towards "sinners" of any shape or form in the church of the past. Is the "phonsie syndrome" an indication that this total lack of regard for others might manifest itself in this day and age

  6. Pat what do you think of the latest Election results in the North? Did you vote DUP as you are in a bit of a Unionist stronghold in East Antrim or maybe your considered North Antrim.

    ReplyDelete
  7. In the North, we respect the rest of right of people to keep their vote private. Even among close family members, we don't ask.,

    1. Some Politicians have indicated who they will vote/transfer for including Mike Nesbitt transferring to the SDLP. Most other Unionists say they will transfer/vote for other Unionists. So it's no big secret. Many are happy to share who they voted for, I voted Sinn Fein for equality issues and a United Ireland amongst other issues. This idea aboutbyour votes being private etc is a nonsense.

    2. There is a private booth in which to cast your vote at the polling booth. That is because, as a previous poster said, it is a private matter. If someone does wish to disclose his preferences, that is completely up to him but we also respect the privacy of the many people(and Pat may be one -) who don't wish to disclose their choices. So no, it's not nonsense.

    3. Why are you so obsessed about how Pat Voted? Why don't you ask that slime ball Fr X what way he voted? No doubt he voted DUP because of his Orange tart of a boyfriend. It's a scandal really when you think about it. I'm surprised he would vote for those bigots and have a bigoted lover considering that the DUP hate benders and sausage jockeys.

  8. Please consider before you post or as you post some automated system where what is posted goes to the media and to media priests such as D'Arcy and Patrick McCafferty. It is necessary to make them look at the important information which you supply so well. The downside I fear of lgbt equality is how priests showing their bodies on grindr is not news anymore. Its got very normalised.

      The obscurity and ambiguity of the message in the post at 17.06 really shows how essential it is to use correct punctuation. Maybe someone will re-write it with greater clarity. That would be appreciated.

  9. Has the Archbishop of Tuam come out and issued a statement concerning the poor babies' remains found in his diocese? Has he offered prayers of atonement? No, he hasn't. More concerned with keeping his head down. A pity some of his priests wouldn't keep their heads down when navigating their way around the Sauna in Dublin and gay bars at home and abroad. Anyone for gay Paris? That diocese ought to be ashamed of itself.

  10. @Pat can you please start a campaign with your media friends to lobby Pope Francis to visit the site of the babies in the septic tank. That is what Catholicism in Ireland in the 50s was. Never mind him visiting the North or Knock. Let him visit Tuam and the site of the Septic Tank. Let him get on his knees there and implore forgiveness. Let that be his legacy if he's looking for one. When the church weren't abusing kids they were burying them in sewers. Disgraceful TUAM

  11. Shocking and so sad
    What were we up to then that we allowed all that to happen
    We're we so brainwashed by the church that we disowned our own daughters when they became pregnant

  12. I don't think Frankie should be made welcome
    He didn't even talk to mariecollins

  13. Good point. Wouldn't it be atrocious if the Pope went to Knock in the Archdiocese of Tuam and did NOT go to Tuam's septic tank. So sad. I suspect the Pope probably would go. They were Catholic nuns. Catholic priests who no doubt drove some of the women to the home away from their communities, and Catholic Archbishops who gave their imprimatur to the whole affair.

  14. I'm not liking this church to which I belong.
    Corruption and domination of the masses

  15. And we learn about Hitler and the extermination of the Jews in school. At least the Nazis had the Christianity not to fire them into sewers. So the Papal Nuncio goes down to Tuam and says prayers in a field a couple of years ago. Where is he today? Why isn't he down there with the Archbishop issuing a statement apologising on behave of the diocese for giving its imprimatur to the Bon Secours to fire innocent dead babies into a sewer? Now we know it's true, where's Charlie? Where's the archbishop of Tuam? Will Phonsie kick any Bon Secour nun out of Waterford? Did the Bon Secur Order excomunicate itself when it gave the go-ahead for baptised babies to be fired not only into unconsecrated ground, but into a sewer. Surely ordaining yourself a bishop is a far cry from dumping over 700 baptised babies into a sewerage system?

  16. I hope the fonsies of today are throwing hissy fits at this abomination.
    It was ok for men to have sex, but woe betide any woman that grew life inside her if not married
    BTW...you historians on here, when was marriage invented
    aren't kids allowed to have parents without an expensive marriage vow

  17. So this is a fairly big story going out all over the world - Tuam Babies. The Irish Catholic has no mention of it on its website. What sort of a joke is that?

    1. And let us also mourn every child who was, and still is, bring murdered as a result of the crime of abortion. Many babies don't even make it to birth.

      Delete
    2. Please don't equate abortion to Babies and young children dumped in sewers by religious and Church authorities. That really is a sickening comparison. Please do not use that appalling argument to justify your abortion arguments, show some respect and common decency.

      Delete
    3. The original meaning of the word abortion was a medical term used to indentify the loss of an early pregnancy.
      Somehow it was then stolen by the so called prolifers for their own propaganda

      Delete
    4. If you had ever being in an abortion clinic and had to remove the small body pieces in a chrome trash can, you might conclude that there wasn't a lot of difference in our experience. I very much think we are the ones who are showing respect and decency and respect for human life right from its tentative beginnings. We disapproved then and we make no apology for doing so now.

    5. We are discussing Tuam here
      You are procastinating for your own agenda
      What had a chrome trash can got to do with the sewers of the 50s
      Ask Pat to make a blog specially for your prolife and then we can comment
      Let's deal with the subject that is today
      Ahospital theatre Can't be compared to a sewer....not today

    6. Why oh why did you work in that clinic

    8. To 0.51 You are a kind person and you are correct of course - - I can't go into detail but I wasn't personally working there thank God but on an errant of mercy but sickeningly long enough there to see it all I'm afraid.

  19. A friend of mine years ago spent some time in a hospital run by the Bon Secour nuns and ever after referred to them as the "Bunch of Whores". After today's heartbreaking story I can see why. I just can't stop thinking about those little babies and their poor mothers.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This sad story is just the tip of a very large iceberg because our attention has been drawn to it. Just imagine the stuff the Irish Church knows about which still remains undisclosed. Would they have refused Communion to those responsible for such a heinous dispicable crime?

    Any Bishops appearing in the media yet today shedding false tears and appearing to be contrite and sorry? They make me sick. A statement might be issued soon about how the Church takes these matters seriously. Well we know from Marie Collins how the Vatican takes things seriously (not). It's enough to make you puke.

  23. Pat I know your busy but will you please offer a mass for the babies.

    ReplyDelete
  24. With the greatest of respect to everyones piety and devotion, I've always been uncomfortable with specific Mass Intentions, believing that every Mass is for the salvation of the World / Universe and therefore it's efficacy and reach is complete and no pain, no cause, not a single sparrow, is absent from the sacred heart of Jesus which in each Mass breaks and encaptulates "Once and for all" or "All at once!" Everything! The mystic Teilhard de Chardin expresses this I believe in his Eucharistic Prayer Over An Awakening World http://ronrolheiser.com/a-eucharistic-prayer-over-an-awakening-world/#.WLoa1Gdvi1s
    "Grant me, Lord, to remember and make mystically present all those whom the light is now awakening to this new day. As I call these to mind, I remember first those who have shared life with me: family, community, friends, and colleagues. And I remember as well, more vaguely but all-inclusively, the whole of humanity, living and dead, and, not least, the physical earth itself, as I stand before you, O God, as a piece of this earth, as that place where the earth opens and closes to you.

    And so, O God, over every living thing which is to spring up, to grow, to flower, to ripen during this day, I say again the words: “This is my body.” And over every death-force which waits in readiness to corrode, to wither, to cut down, I speak again your words which express the supreme mystery of faith: “This is my blood.” On my paten, I hold all who will live this day in vitality, the young, the strong, the healthy, the joy-filled; and in my chalice, I hold all that will be crushed and broken today as that vitality draws its life. I offer you on this all-embracing altar everything that is in our world, everything that is rising and everything that is dying, and ask you to bless it."
