DEBRA HIMES CHIPLONIA will become a member of the Catholic Church during the 08:30 am Mass at St. Vincent dePaul Church today (Sunday, 05 September). Having completed a course of instructions and having professed her Catholic faith in private, she will now do so in public.
With great joy, we welcome Debra into the Church. A few years ago, she was baptized in a Protestant church. However, after due deliberation about the mode of that particular baptism, we have mutually agreed that she will be baptized conditionally during the Mass, then confirmed and, of course, receive the Holy Eucharist for the first time.
Debra is the wife of Ralph D. Chiplonia (known to many of us as the 08:30 Mass “altar boy”) and the mother of two daughters: Brittany and Emily. Debra’s mother-in-law, Mary Nicastro Chiplonia, will serve as her sponsor. Debra is taking the name “Elizabeth” for Confirmation.
May our Lord Jesus Christ and His holy Mother bless Debra and her family and keep them always in Their Hearts! May she persevere in the Faith until the day she sees God face to face.
Additional note: I give thanks to God for the privilege of having instructed Debra in the Faith!

THE SAD NEWS
TOGETHER
WITH SOME PERSONAL
REFLECTIONS
ON SAME
THE
NEWS: 15 November 2009

I read in the newspaper that a certain priest of the Diocese of Allentown was accused of having been involved in an inappropriate relationship with a teenage girl while she was in her senior year at the high school at which he served as chaplain. No specifics were reported. I read that the Diocese responded to the allegation by removing him immediately from all priestly ministry in the Diocese and sending him to a facility that specializes in providing therapy and counseling for troubled clergy and religious.

MY PERSONAL REFLECTIONS ON SAME
A deep breath and a sigh. I know the priest. I don’t know him well, but I know him. (I was present at his ordination. It was a joyful occasion.) This sure doesn’t look good. I sure hope it turns out to be less than it seems. I hope that a fair and honest resolution will come about. I hope that justice will prevail for all concerned. I hope that no harm has been done to the girl. I hope that the priest will be able to return to priestly ministry. I hope that it’s not true. If it is true, I hope that there will be repentance with firm purpose of amendment and some opportunity for mercy. The Diocese acted appropriately. What else could the Bishop do except remove the priest pending further developments? Meanwhile, I have confidential conversations with other priests, looking for more information. We share our ignorance. No one seems to know any more than I do. We all are hoping for the best. We are praying for all parties concerned. We speak to laypersons who ask us about it. We tell them to pray.

THE NEWS: 28 August 2010
After nine months of no follow-up news, I read this in the newspaper on Saturday, 28 August. This is a summary of what I read:
(a) The priest and the young woman are living together (outside the Diocese of Allentown) and are the parents of a six-week old girl.
(b) The girl’s parents claim that, during their daughter’s senior year (2008-09), they had reported to the administration of the High School their suspicions about the appropriateness of the relationship between the priest and their daughter, but had been told by the administration that nothing could be done about it.
(c) In November of 2009 (five months after the girl had graduated), the parents set up a video camera in the basement of their home in an attempt to catch the priest and their daughter engaged in inappropriate activity.
(d) The camera confirmed their suspicions and they brought the video evidence to the Diocese.
(e) The Diocese responded immediately by removing the priest from all priestly ministry (as noted above).
(f) The parents have engaged an attorney and have filed suit against the Diocese, against the High School, against Bishop Cullen and against Bishop Barres.

MY PERSONAL REFLECTIONS ON SAME
Well, my hopes were not realized. As they say in Latin: Res ipsa loquitur! (The thing speaks for itself!) I guess there is no longer any room for doubt that the priest acted inappropriately! I’m sorry for him! I’m sorry for the girl! What a sad situation! What a heartbreak for the parents of the girl! What a heartbreak for the parents of the priest! What a heartbreak for Bishop Cullen who ordained him! What a heartbreak for Bishop Barres, still relatively new to the Diocese! What a heartbreak for the Lord! I hope the baby girl will be well taken care of and will turn out to be a happy, healthy and well-adjusted human being.
But, I must admit that I find it hard to believe — actually impossible to believe — that the administration of the High School would actually have said that there was “nothing they could do about it” when the parents first approached them to complain about an inappropriate friendship between the priest and their daughter. This is just incredible on the face of it. If parents in any school, whether public or private, were to approach an administrator with founded suspicions of improprieties between a student and a faculty member, the administrator would certainly not tell them that he was powerless to do anything! At the very least, the administration would call the accused on the carpet and, whether he admitted guilt or not, would command him to break off all contact whatsoever with the student. In addition, in the case of a priest in a Catholic school, the report would have gone immediately to the Bishop. So, until I find out otherwise, I shall decline to believe that the administration of the High School was so laissez faire about the matter. I don’t believe everything I read!
Another thought that comes to me is this: Isn’t it bizarre that parents would set up a video camera in their own home in order to catch their daughter in flagrante delicto? Whatever in the world prompted them to do that? It seems to me so “counter-parental”! Maybe they had watched too many episodes of To Catch a Predator! Is it possible that they were thinking of “cashing in” with this video?
Well, as far as my hopes that the priest would be exonerated and would eventually return to priestly ministry, I’ll file that away in my manila folder of “prayers destined not to be answered according to my specifications”. But I’m not mad at God! Even God is restrained by the reality that human beings create! (There’s a profound thought for you!) Nevertheless, no prayer is ever wasted. I pray that the priest and the girl will seek to do God’s will to the best of their ability, within the confines of the reality they have chosen. The eternal salvation of our fellow human beings is the petition that underlies all of our petitions for lesser and temporal goods.

THE NEWS: 01 September 2010
Just a few days later, I read a follow-up. This is a summary of what I read:
(a) The Berks County District Attorney announced that no criminal charges will be filed against the priest. The reason has to do with the girl’s age at the time when the sexual relationship between the priest and the girl was determined to have begun. She was 18 at the time, according to the DA’s Office — therefore, legally able to give consent. From the vantage point of the law of the State of Pennsylvania (and of all other states, I presume), there is no basis for criminal prosecution.
(b) The Diocese of Allentown has begun the process of petitioning Rome for the laicization of the priest. As the Pottsville Republican put it (page one) “Vatican Mulls Laicization of Priest”


MY PERSONAL REFLECTIONS ON SAME
I am pleased at the fact that the priest will not have to face criminal prosecution. He has enough problems! I have no doubt that some persons will be disappointed that there will be no criminal prosecution. Generally speaking, I am not anxious to see anyone punished. I tend to be wary of persons who are hot to see that others get punished. Punishment is necessary in some cases, but not all. I am not implying that the priest was guiltless, by any means. I am simply saying that the State of Pennsylvania has no urgent need to punish him. We do well to separate moral turpitude from criminal behavior whenever possible. I remember a maxim that I consider particularly wise:
It is a common error among Liberals to think that everything that is legal is moral, whereas it is a common error among Conservatives to think that everything that is immoral must be made illegal. (In case you never heard that before, I heartily recommend it to you for reflection and even memorization..)
I understand what laicization means. I have an idea that most readers of newspapers don’t understand what it means. I think some readers of the Pottsville Republican will have a heyday with “Vatican Mulls Laicization of Priest”. They will think to themselves: “What the heck is the Vatican mulling about? Don’t they think that what that priest did was wrong? Is the Vatican really going to debate whether or not to remove that guy from the priesthood? What is it that those guys in Rome don’t understand?”
It is always good to define terms. So, let us define laicization. Here is a short and simple definition:
Laicization is the process by which an ordained priest is relieved of his priestly obligations and is returned to the status of a lay person.
Notice what laicization is not! Laicization is not the process by which an ordained priest is relieved of his priestly duties. It is the process by which he is relieved of his obligations.
Got that? Obligations, not duties!!
By the time a petition is entered for laicization,
it is already a given that the priest has been relieved of his duties. The one who has the authority to relieve him of his duties is his Bishop (or religious superior in the case of a religious). But the Bishop has no authority to relieve him of his obligations. Only the Pope has that authority. What obligations are we referring to? Primarily the obligation to observe celibacy (remain unmarried) and the obligation to pray the Divine Office.
Quite frankly, these obligations have little or no impact on the status of the priest in civil society. They are relevant only to his status in the Church.
If a priest gives evidence that he cannot or will not refrain from seeking intimacy with a woman (what is commonly known as pursuing marriage), the Church probably does well to laicize him, so that he may at least pursue a marriage that is valid and honorable. This is an act of dispensational charity to the priest. The Church does what she can in order to keep sin from piling up on top of sin.

Bottom line:
• May God have mercy on the priest. Let him depart in peace. What’s done is done!
• May he continue to practice the Catholic Faith to the best of his ability as a layman and find salvation by so doing.
• May he be conscientious and diligent in providing for the financial support of his child.
• As far as his future relationship with the young woman is concerned, may God give him the wisdom to act in her best interests and in the best interests of the child they have brought into the world.
• May the Church exercise ever greater prudence in regard to admitting men to ordination. Let the hands of bishops not be imposed on any man for priestly ordination unless it is crystal clear: (a) that he is resolved to commit himself for the rest of his life to celibacy and to the self-discipline that makes celibacy possible and fruitful and (b) that he is psychologically and spiritually capable of making such a commitment.
• Let none of us use the sins and faults of priests in order to rationalize dropping out of the Church or badmouthing the Bishop.
• Let parents be protective of the chastity of their teenage sons and daughters. And, for God’s sake, let parents exercise due discretion when it comes to allowing teenage girls to be alone with men or with teenage boys. Whether the visitor to the home be the girl’s current boyfriend or the Parish Priest or Charles Manson or the Dalai Lama, there is no excuse for a closed door between an unchaperoned couple and the parents of the teenager..
• After due consideration, may the civil lawsuits against the parties named above be dismissed, and may the attorney for the plaintiffs receive a financial reward commensurate with the merits of the allegations.

Note: One of the names on this list is that of a friend of mine who lives in Pittsburgh and reads the bulletin on line. He told me that he is sending me one-hundred dollars for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal and, in return, would like me to stop printing exhortations to parishioners to donate to the BAA. He said he is tired of reading these exhortations. I gratefully accepted his generous donation and do thank him for it. (He is not a member of either parish.) However, I did not promise him that I would stop exhorting people to donate.

TOWN TOUR: “The Way We Were
The Girardville Historical Society is sponsoring a tour of Girardville on Sunday, 12 September. The tour starts at 02:00 pm. There is no charge for the tour and the public is invited. Participants should gather at the Society Headquarters, located at 1 W. Main Street. The tour will proceed to the 100 and 200 blocks of E. Main Street and will conclude at the 2nd Street School (now the Girard Towers).
The day is known as
Lieutenant Colonel Patrick H. Monaghan Day.
For the benefit of the uninitiated, we are pleased to print this short bio of the Colonel, which we found at the following website: http://files.usgwarchives.net/pa/schuylkill/bios/m525001.txt

 PATRICK MONAGHAN

It is a curious coincidence tht on the same day that Scotch-born Robert A. Reid was capturing a Confederate flag at Petersburg, on 17 June 1864 a fellow Schuylkill Countian, Ireland-born Patrick H. Monaghan was recapturing a Union flag on the same battlefield and he, too, would win a Congressional Medal of Honor.
Born in Mayo, Ireland, on 19 November 1843, Patrick H. Monaghan came to this country at an early age and when he became 17, enlisted in the Union forces as a member of Company F, 48th Regiment, the same regiment to which Comrade Reid belonged.
Mulholland says of Comrade Monaghan's feat in recapturing colors of the 7th New York Heavy Artillery at Petersburg on 17 June 1864: "His regiment was in the 9th Corps, Army of the Potomac, and the early morning charge on the Confederate works. Seeing in the melee three Confederates making for the rear, one of them carrying a stand of colors, he promptly rushed at them and demanded their surrender. They threw up their hands and Sergeant Monaghan brought them in. When the flag was unfurled, it proved to be that of the 7th New York Heavy
Artillery that had been captured the day before."
Monaghan first enlisted 12 August 1861, for three years and at the expiration of the enlistment re-joined for the duration of the war, serving to the end and being mustered out with his regiment 17 July 1865. He was wounded at Bull Run, the Wilderness and Petersburg, Mulholland writes, and received his medal from General George Meade at the headquarters of the Union Army on 16 December 1864, at which Mulholland was present.
After the War, Monaghan became an active member of the National Guard of Pennsylvania and was captain, major and lieutenant colonel of his regiment.
He lived in Minersville for a time, there marrying Bridget Derrick, also born in County Mayo, who had come here with her family.
A school teacher from 1873 to 1916, he was well-known in County education circles as the longtime superintendent of the Girardville public schools.
He died in 1917 at the age of 74 years.

IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE TOWN TOUR, please be aware that the Girardville Crime Watch will sponsor a

BAKE SALE.

at the Girardville Towers (where the tour will end) and the time of the bake sale is 01:30 pm until sell-out. (Can you buy Stollen at a Crime-Watch Bake Sale?)
