Together we Stand

 

Hi to all,

I sent a letter to all of these people and a letter was sent back to the Bishop of Auckland New Zealand who represents the Pope in New Zealand, who then sent a letter to the priest in Whangarei who will represent the Pope for me.

So if I can do this so can all of you. Please write to them all and if you look down to Cardinal Ratzinger he was the Cardinal who sent the letters to all of the Bishops world wide about the sexual abuse of the nuns and priest.

Nothing has been done about girls and women who were sexual abused by nuns and priest in the Catholic Orphanages World wide.

When I went to see the priest today I told him that all I hear is the abuse of the boys and men and that it was about time they did something for the girls and women who were sexual abuse by nuns and priest, so he is know doing that.

I will met with him again and I will tell you now that the Bishop or/and priest will not do anything about the abuse of nuns or priest unless they hear from the Pope first and that I know they will not do,
[That is write to the Pope for you, I had to do that myself] and only then will the church jump.

They have been written to by the Pope and they still go there own way, I think that they do not want the Pope to know that it has happened over this neck of the woods, so it is up to us to take the bull by his horns and write to the Pope ourselevs.

Come on girls if I can write to Rome so can all of you. YOU KNOW WHAT WE SAY, TOGETHER WE STAND AND THAT IS HOW WE WILL BE HEARD, lET US NOW DO IT FOR THE WOMEN AND GIRLS SO THEY KNOW IT HAPPENED DOWN IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND.
Send the same letter to all here, like I did. I told them what was done to me by the priest and nuns, How I felt then and how I feel now.

Ann.

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, head of the Congregation, which deals with matters of faith and morals, sent a letter to all Roman Catholic bishops and heads of religious orders outlining the Vatican's concerns.

Ratzinger's letter said that if a local bishop or head of a religious order became aware of "even a hint" of a case of paedophilia "he must open an investigation and inform the [Rome] Congregation".

At one point in his speech, John Paul
said, "There is no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young."

Vatican to investigate paedophile priests in secret

10.01.2002

VATICAN CITY - The Vatican has quietly issued new rules for Roman Catholic churches around the world to deal with paedophile priests, saying they should stand trial in secret ecclesiastical courts.

Pope John Paul and the Vatican issued two documents on the problem last year, but they were not made public, as is usually the case for such documents.

Instead, they were published in Latin without any fanfare in the latest yearly volume of "Acta Apostolicae Sedis" (Acts of the Apostolic See), the journal of record of the Holy See.

In recent years, the Roman Catholic Church around the world has been rocked by scandals involving paedophile priests, and the Vatican has been grappling with how to control the damage.

In his document, known in Latin as a "Motu Proprio" and one of the highest forms of papal directives, the Pope authorised the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to issue guidelines on how to deal with the problem.

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, head of the Congregation, which deals with matters of faith and morals, sent a letter to all Roman Catholic bishops and heads of religious orders outlining the Vatican's concerns.

"With this letter, we hope that not only will these serious crimes be avoided, but, above all, that the holiness of the clergy and the faithful be protected by the necessary sanctions and by the pastoral care offered by the bishops and others responsible," the letter said.
Ratzinger's letter said that if a local bishop or head of a religious order became aware of "even a hint" of a case of paedophilia "he must open an investigation and inform the [Rome] Congregation".

A local Church tribunal, made up of priests, should hear the case, which could be referred to the Vatican, but the procedures would be covered by church secrecy. The letter made no mention of whether a bishop should inform civil authorities if a Church court found a priest guilty.

Last September, a French court handed down a three-month suspended jail term to a Roman Catholic bishop for failing to tell police that a priest in his diocese had admitted sexually abusing children.

The Congregation, the modern successor of the Inquisition, included acts of paedophilia by priests as one of the "grave offences" against the Church. A separate cover sheet asked the recipients not to divulge the information contained in the letter, Church sources said.

Paedophilia scandals, particularly in developed countries, have given the Church a black eye and cost local dioceses millions of dollars in legal fees and settlements.
