The latest scandal for the Archdiocese of Portland has hit the Drudgereport and it's hard to find an article that is not a liberal bash against the Church. This open-ended loan could have been eliminated and Father Perez could have a public defender. All defendents deserve a fair trial.
The formation of this priest from Mexico was helped by Father (now Monsignor) Charles Liernart of St. Andrew Church in Portland when he was the Vicar of Clergy and had Fathers Krueger and Mosbucker on the Clergy Personnel Board with him. Please read this article to see their division from the Church's teachings.
Father Liernart, Krueger and Mosbrucker..are they teaching the seminarians/priests the Truth? click
St. Andrew Church is notorious for its involvment in the "Gay Pride" Parade in Portland. Father Lienart's predecessor, Father Robert Kruger, apparently has the same disregard for the Church's teachings and should in no way be anywhere near a seminarian/priest having this active homosexual/woman's ordination way of thinking. Why are they in positions in the Church at all, they should be in RCIA with great catecist. This in NO way absolves this predator priest. But we pay for these priests and their disobedience to our Lord.
In the Archdiocese of Portland, I believe, the next shoe to drop is more homosexual abuse in the Hispanic community. This culture is easy prey I'm sorry to say. Please be aware of this.
Regarding another priest.
A year or so ago I asked for anyone to tell me about abuse they know about in the Archdiocese. In 2007 I was approached regarding a heterosexual "event" that eventually went to court. My advice to this young woman was to pursue this and thus help other women who might have been in the same hard spot.
Just to let you know that this was settled by the Archdiocese before a trial. The young woman had a gag order put on her. My name was mentioned during the court proceedings and the Archbishop knows I "know". Do NOT be alarmed if you haven't gone through having your priest accused. This has been my great fear that a majority of good priests will be questioned, however this parish has already been given a letter from the Archbishop that was read or in the bulletin regarding this priest's absence.
He is still around and will be put in another parish in another state. He should be deported, but I haven't heard, nor do I think this will happen. This is very unpleasant to mention, but life can be unpleasant at times and this has haunted me for five years.
I pray that this last bit of information will bring out more women regarding any abuse and prevent any more from taking place.
The young woman and her family wanted this known. There have been meetings according to her at the Pastoral Center and letters sent to no avail. She has not had any help/therapy from the Archdiocese and was treated very poorly, according to her and her mom, from the Archdiocesean lawyers. Where is Jesus in any of this?
God forgive me for putting off telling her story for so long. Let it not be too late for someone else.
We thank you for our for our faithful priests and bishops, whose spiritual fatherhood and example of fidelity, self-sacrifice, and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people.
May our spiritual fathers be guided by the examples of Saints Peter and Paul, all the Apostles and their saintly successors. Give them valiant faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you, for their families, and for all your people throughout the world. May the light of your Truth shine through their lives and their good works.
Assist all spiritual fathers, that through your Grace they may steadily grow in holiness and in knowledge and understanding of your Truth. May they generously impart this knowledge to those who rely on them.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
