+J.M.J.+ PRAYER AND PENANCE !!! A brief glimpse into the prayer efforts of El Paso & Las Cruces’ Catholic Faithful.
The battleground is the diocese and surrounding area.
The warriors are the faithful.
The weapons are the rosary and other prayers.
Above all we are engaged in a spiritual battle and must humbly beg God and our Blessed Mother for supernatural aid. Please pray the rosary and perform acts of penance daily. Prayer is more effective in groups, and as a public witness, so everyone is strongly encouraged to join in the events of our weekly prayer schedule.(Visit: ) As a group we are also (a) praying continual novenas and (b) abstaining from meat on Wednesdays (in addition to Friday, as mandated by the Church.)

“Really what this lawsuit is about, is about a cover up by the diocese of Oakland, of a paedophile priest with complicity by the vatican.”

10. SOUNDBITE: (English) Jeff Anderson, plaintiffs’ attorney:
“The only way the kids can be protected is for them to not keep secrets, to become transparent, to open up their secret files and to be held accountable.”
11. Rosson holding photo of herself
12. SOUNDBITE: (English) Teresa Rosson, alleged abuse victim:
“It’s important that none of this ever happens again to any other child and to hold the catholic church responsible, the Oakland dioceses in particular. They have not shown any accountability for any of their actions.”
13. Mid of Church cross
14. SOUNDBITE: (English) Mike Brown, spokesman for Diocese of Oakland:
“In 1978 Kiesle was arrested and charged with child molestation and even before he got to court, bishop Cummins who was the diocese’s bishop at the time, bishop John Cummins called Kiesle in and removed him from priestly ministry. Kiesle never again acted as a priest in the dioceses.”

Six women and one man who alleged they were sexually abused by a Roman Catholic priest decades ago filed two separate lawsuits on Wednesday alleging the Diocese of Oakland was negligent in hiring the priest and failed to warn parents of potential abuse.
The lawsuits, filed in Alameda County Superior Court, call into question how the diocese handled the case of the Reverend Stephen Kiesle, a priest who pleaded no contest to misdemeanour child molestation in 1978.
After his criminal case, Kiesle asked the Vatican to laicize him in a petition that was supported by diocese officials.
The Associated Press in April obtained much of Kiesle’s laicization file, including a letter that bears the signature of then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who is now Pope Benedict XVI.
In the letter to diocese officials, Ratzinger said the arguments for removing Kiesle were of “grave significance,” but added that such action required careful review and more time.
Jeff Anderson, an attorney representing the plaintiffs, said then-Oakland bishop John C. Cummins and other church officials knew there were multiple allegations of abuse against Kiesle, and did nothing to prevent the priest from continuing to access children.
Mike Brown, spokesman for the diocese, said officials had not yet seen the lawsuits.
He pointed out that after Kiesle pleaded no contest to the charges of abuse, the diocese did not allow him to function as a priest, offered him counselling, and eventually supported his laicization.
The Oakland diocese was among the earliest to develop programs to help those who came forward with charges of abuse, said Brown.
The lawsuits filed on Wednesday do not name the Vatican as a defendant and address alleged abuse that happened, for the most part, before Kiesle’s child molestation plea and subsequent petition to be defrocked.
One of the plaintiffs, Teresa Rosson, alleges that Kiesle molested her for years, starting in 1973 when she was 11.
Kiesle was 38.

The 42nd Annual Diocese of Raleigh Youth Convention was held at Fort Caswell on Oak Island, May 18-20, 2012. The theme was, “Do this in memory of Me,” based on the Gospel of Luke 22:14. Approximately 700 high school students, chaperones and staff representing 43 parishes participated in the event.
Youth Convention is an opportunity for parish youth ministry groups to gather for workshops and fellowship and to elect the youth board for the upcoming year. This year, several honorary guests were in attendance including Fr. Ryan Z. Carnecer, CICM, St. Eugene, Wendell; Fr. Vic Gournas, St. Paul, New Bern; Fr. Joseph G. Vetter, St. Therese, Wrightsville Beach; and Fr. Marcos Leon-Angulo, Sacred Heart, Whiteville. In addition, 13 Sisters from Orders representing eight different regions around the country were paired with groups from each Deanery for the weekend. The 2012 Convention concluded with the celebration of Mass with the Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge presiding; Fr. Ryan Carnecer, CICM, concelebrated.
In Bishop Burbidge’s homily, he noted how the theme, “Do this in memory of Me,” is rooted in the Eucharist. “In the Eucharist, we have the pledge of eternal life. Where the Lord has gone, we hope to follow. Do this in memory of me. Do not allow the passing things of this world to consume you and to be your priority,” said Bishop Burbidge. “This life on earth is merely a journey. Keep your priorities in order; keep your eyes fixed on heaven; stay ready and prepared to meet the Lord so that you may enjoy life with Him forever.”
The Bishop concluded, “The Convention is over, it is true. You cannot stay here. The Lord needs you back to your homes, schools and communities to be His witnesses. So go in peace, glorifying the Lord with your life and heeding His words: ‘Do this in memory of me.'”
The Bishop’s words resonated with one of the participants, who said, “I learned how my actions affect other people, and I want to let God shine through me when I go back home.”
The keynote speaker, Catholic Rapper Bob “Righteous B” Lesnefsky, energized the youth in attendance. He is a graduate of Franciscan University in Steubenville, OH, and is a successful Christian rapper. Sr. Laura Teresa Downing, IHM, spoke about her journey to her vocation, and Katherine Angulo, Director of Youth Ministry, compared Faith to a Journey and even shared her desire to become a saint.
New to the Convention this year was a service project: making dresses from donated t-shirts and skirts. The students assembled and sewed the dresses together to be donated to the organization Dress a Girl Around the World. Youth at other service stations made memory jars and pocket prayers.
Reflection Stations were also a part of the weekend’s activities. Sisters were assigned parishes and led reflections in different areas of the campus. A group meditation was held at the top of the fort overlooking the entire campus.
Night time activities included a talent show, new Youth Board announcements and Eucharistic Adoration. Students walked through a candlelit tunnel leading into the fort where the Blessed Sacrament was exposed.
“There was a lot of energy here this weekend and that gives me hope,” said Sister Grace Malonzo, D.W., visiting from the Diocese of Richmond. “Religious life is full of peace, goodness and joy, and I think that was expressed here this weekend.”
