German Abbot Unjustly Removed Over Unverified Abuses

Germany

Benedictine Abbot Barnabas Bögle of Ettal in Bavaria was unjustly removed last February following claims that he had mishandled an abuse case. Famous German psychiatrist and author Manfred Lütz, has published a strong defense of the abbot. His article appeared in the very prestigious “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung”. Lütz points out that the abbot acted very responsibly and carefully in a case that later turned out not to be an abuse at all. The psychiatrist who was personally involved in the case, at an early stage, accuses now the priest who handles abuses cases in the archdiocese of Munich to have misread documents concerning the case and drawn wrong conclusions.

Crucial Facts Are Not Reported

Germany

Journalists have used a sex-abuse case in the Munich archdiocese in order to form a direct link to Pope Benedict XVI. But emerging details of the case show that the future Pontiff was not involved in appointing the accused molester to do parish work. The priest in question belonged to the Essen diocese, when he was first accused of sexual misconduct in 1980. At the time then-Cardinal Ratzinger was Archbishop of Munich. He approved the priest’s transfer to Munich. The journalist did however not report the crucial fact that this transfer did not imply parish work but entrance into a counseling program in Munich. The priest was given a parish assignment in September 1982 - 7 months after Cardinal Ratzinger had left to Rome to become the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

The Pope Will Do It Himself

Vatican

Pope Benedict XVI will meet Queen Elizabeth II, declare blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman, and travel to Scotland during a 4-day visit to the United Kingdom in September. During his pontificate, Benedict XVI has presided only at canonization ceremonies, leaving beatifications to other prelates. But apparently because of his special devotion to Cardinal Newman, he will personally beatify the great 19th-century convert and theologian at a Mass in Coventry.
