More trouble for the Cardinal

Share Button

Note that previously convicted and presently incarcerated molester  Father Yvon Arsenault is facing new charges:

18 May 2016:  09:30 am, courtroom #3, Moncton Courthouse Moncton NB (45 Assumption Blvd

Father Arsenault was previously charged in Moncton, New Brunswick in December 2013, and in the Miramichi in March 2015.  The two sets of charges were eventually merged and he entered guilty pleas to all October 2016.  On 24 February 2017 he was  sentenced to four years.

I commend the complainant(s) for finding the courage to contact police.    Please keep him (her?)  in your prayers.


More trouble for Australia’s Cardinal George Pell:

13 May 2017:  “Cardinal George Pell accused of sexually abusing two choirboys, book claims” & related articles

Back in 2oo2 an internal church inquiry cleared Pell, then Archbishop of Sydney, Australia,  of sexually abusing a boy  in 1961 while Pell was still a seminarian. According to media reports, the retired judge who  led the inquiry concluded that he was “not satisfied that the complaint has been established”.

 15 October 2002:  Catholic archbishop is cleared of sexual abuse allegations

There have, as you will see int he first series of articles,  been further allegations from other male complainants since 2002.

And, yes, hats off to “Zoie Jones” who snapped that picture of the Cardinal transiting through London Heathrow airport .  He may have been incapacitated and unable to travel a few months ago, but he certainly  looks to be in good form and fit to travel there.


Today is the the 100th anniversary of the first apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary to the three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal .

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day.

Enough for now,
