Victim advocates claim that Bergoglio knew about the sexual abuse of Father Corradi and did nothing to stop him.


December 1, 2016 – Response by Anne Barrett Doyle, Co-Director, BishopAccountability.org (781-439-5208 cell)
Background
Argentine authorities arrested this week Father Nicola Corradi, S.M., an Italian priest reported to the Vatican in 2008 or 2009 and again in 2014 by deaf survivors in Verona, Italy. Now 82, Corradi is accused of a range of more recent abuses in Argentina, including forcing hearing-impaired children, ages 10-12, to have oral sex with each other. The alleged crimes occurred at the Antonio Provolo Institute for Deaf Children in the Mendoza province of Argentina.
Authorities charged Corradi, and four other adults, including Rev. Horacio Hugo Corbacho S.M., of molesting eight children at the school. Since the arrest, a total of around 60 children have been identified as possible victims.
In May 2014, an Italian survivors' group issued a public plea (see 1, 2 and 3) to Pope Francis to bring to justice Corradi and 15 or so other reported child molesters who had worked at Istituto Provolo, a school for deaf children in Verona, Italy. The survivors’ plea to the Pope included the alarming news that Corradi and three other alleged Verona abusers were currently working at the order's two schools for deaf children in Argentina (one in La Plata and the other in Mendoza).

Although he knew or should have known (1, 2) that deaf children in his home country were in immediate peril, it appears that the Pope took no action. Neither did the local Church ordinaries: Héctor Rubén Aguer, archbishop of La Plata since 2000; José María Arancibia, archbishop of Mendoza between 1996 and 2012; and Arancibia's successor, current archbishop Carlos Maria Franzini. Survivors claim (1, 2) that the archbishops knew of Corradi's alleged crimes in Italy. In any case, they should have known: before granting Corradi faculties to work in La Plata or Mendoza, a Google search would have revealed instantly the grave allegations of a child sex ring and dozens of victims at the school for deaf children run by Corradi and his colleagues in Verona, Italy.
(The horrible story of the Verona victims received worldwide press attention in 2009 and 2010. More than 65 deaf men and women have reported being sodomized and assaulted as children by numerous priests at the Verona school. )

Comments by BishopAccountability

Words fail. It is appalling and heartbreaking that Corradi was not stopped by Pope Francis or by other Church authorities. Corradi’s presence at the school in Mendoza was no secret.

Because of the Church’s inaction, Corradi appears to have been able to replicate exactly the grotesque situation he enjoyed in Verona – a ring of child molesters in charge of utterly defenseless children who could neither hear nor speak.

The Mercy Impostor
The Clergy Abuse Tracker site, Bishop Accountability reviewed archive records of Bergoglio in Argentina. Here are some of their findings about Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio:

Jorge Mario Bergoglio was archbishop of Buenos Aires from 1998 to 2013 and president of the Argentine bishops’ conference from 2005 to 2011. During these 15 years, as church officials in the US and Europe began addressing the catastrophe of child sexual abuse by clergy – and even as Popes John Paul II and Benedict made public statements –

   Bergoglio stayed silent about the crisis in Argentina.

   He released no documents,

   He released no names of accused priests,

   No tallies of accused priests,

   No policy for handling abuse, not even an apology to victims.

   In his many homilies and statements (archived on the Buenos Aires archdiocesan website), he attacked government corruption, wealth inequities, and human sex trafficking, but he said nothing about sexual violence by priests.”

Additionally, Bishop Accountability tracks clergy abuse cases around the world and keeps a database of predatory priests. It describes a deplorable record for Bergoglio:


“Bergoglio’s implication, that he handled no abusive priests, is implausible. Buenos Aires is Argentina’s largest diocese, and Bergoglio was one of its top executives from 1992 to 2013 – a period when tens of thousands of victims worldwide reported their abuse to the Church. {W}e estimate conservatively that from 1950 to 2013, more than 100 Buenos Aires archdiocesan priests offended against children and that dozens of them were known to archdiocesan supervisors, including Bergoglio.”

“Bergoglio’s strategy for suppressing the crisis in Buenos Aires – his behind-the-scenes refusal to help victims combined with a total lack of transparency – continues to be the approach of many of Argentina’s bishops and religious superiors.”

Bergoglio leaves behind a tragic legacy in Argentina. It’s no surprise that he continues the same myopic stance as Pontiff. He hides behind the veneer of mercy while wrapping himself in the seamless poverty garment of global modernism. Link
