Milwaukee Priest Wants Archbishop Myers Investigated

At Voice of the Faithful’s 10th Year Conference in Boston this past September, Fr. James Connell, a priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and advocate for clergy sexual abuse victims/survivors, spoke about truth before healing in the Catholic Church’s clergy sexual abuse scandal. As one aspect in the search for that truth, Fr. Connell sent a letter on Apr. 29 to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith asking for an investigation into Archbishop of Newark John Myers’ handling of the case of Rev. Michael Fugee, who pleaded guilty to groping a boy but was kept in ministry. You can read Fr. Connell’s letter on National Catholic Reporter’s website under the title Milwaukee Priest Wants Archbishop Myers Investigated.

    If the Bible was followed, all would be OK. But covering up even 1 criminal and/or immoral act, will come out. It shouldn’t be taken lightly especially by our spiritual leaders/teachers. We should also be following the law of the land and the Bible on the discipline/punishment. Our leaders should study what the Bible says about teachers being judged and discipline.
