Father Kentenich Accused of “Abuses” – But No Facts

The German Pallottine Father Joseph Kentenich (+1968), the founder of the Schoenstatt Apostolic Movement, was removed by the Vatican and sent to Milwaukee in 1951 – allegedly – because of “sexual abuses.”

Alexandra von Teuffenbach writes in Die-Tagespost.de (July 3) that Kentenich had sexually abused some Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary he founded and that this was the cause for Kentenich’s removal.

Teuffenbach says she found evidence in the archives of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, after Francis made documents from the time of Pius XII (+1958) accessible.

These allegations are strongly denied by the Schoenstatt movement that indicated that they had long been known, but the fact that Kentenich was reinstated in 1965 was evidence that they were not considered true.

Further, Kentenich’s process of beatification was opened in 1975 which would not have happened if such accusations were deemed true.

The Sisters of Mary were visitated between 1951-1953 by the famous Jesuit Father Sebastian Tromp (+1975) who wrote many of Pius XII’s encyclicals.

Tromp criticised that the sisters were obliged to confess with Father Kentenich, that Kentenich was too authoritarian, that he couldn’t bear criticism, and that there was a “pathological relationship” between him and the sisters.

Teuffenbach claims further that there was a “family secret” which she suggests was of sexual nature because Kentenich wanted to resolve the sisters' sexual tensions through the "depth psychological method." However, her article lacks hard facts.

Speak English. And it means that buried in the Germanic people is a defect that takes good ideas and religions and ruins them in the name of ego/hubris and power.

The last 500 years of hell and the issue in the US right now with the riots are all due to their errors in the fields of philosophy, economics, and religion. Pope Benedict has created the current crisis in the Church because he thought he could expand the papacy. He let evil ascend the throne .

The great irony of the German genius: change for change, no self awareness, and no learning.

"Pope Benedict has created the current crisis in the Church because he thought he could expand the papacy."

No he didn't @Jmy1975 Benedict resigned from the Papacy and "evil" has been a part of the Church since at least Vatican Council II. The current Pope is simply the most visible and flamboyant manifestation of it.

Germany is a country with tens of millions if peoples, that has been around for millenia, Christianity was saved by the Sacred Empire. You are very antichristian, talking like that. Anyone could do the same with your country, I have proved it to you, profusely... Don't do this, smear a good person, based on such faulty reasoning, it's a shame, big time

@Jmy1975 "And it means that buried in the Germanic people is a defect that takes good ideas and religions and ruins them in the name of ego/hubris and power. " AND DON'T WE KNOW IT! On October 7, 1885, Friedrich Trump, a 16-year-old German barber, bought a one-way ticket for America, escaping three years of compulsory German military service (aka draft-dodging).
