La Arquidiócesis, da a conocer los nombres de los miembros del clero retirados del ministerio, por acusaciones de abuso sexual de un menor

2 de noviembre de 2018

Al pueblo de Dios en la Arquidiócesis de Nueva Orleáns:

Queridas hermanas y hermanos en Cristo,

A las víctimas y sobrevivientes de abuso sexual, mi corazón y mi apoyo en oración, están con ustedes, para que puedan recibir la sanidad y la compasión de Dios. Cualquier persona que sea víctima o sobreviviente de abuso sexual, sepa que estoy deseoso de reunirme con usted, para que pueda yo caminar con usted en la búsqueda de su curación.

Después de mucha oración y consulta con muchas personas, incluido el Consejo de Sacerdotes y el liderazgo laico, he decidido publicar los nombres de los miembros del clero  arquidiocesano (sacerdotes y diáconos), que han sido retirados del ministerio por una denuncia de abuso sexual de un menor. Este informe también, incluye miembros del clero  arquidiocesanos fallecidos, y sacerdotes de orden religioso.

He recibido muchas llamadas y correos electrónicos, pidiéndome que publique los nombres. También, he recibido muchas llamadas y correos electrónicos que, sugieren no publicar los nombres. Creo que es lo correcto para fomentar la curación de las víctimas, en un espíritu de transparencia y, en la búsqueda de la justicia. Jesús nos recuerda: “La verdad te hará libre” (Juan 8:32).

Para aquellos contra quienes la acusación se produjo después de su muerte, se llevó a cabo un examen muy cuidadoso para justificar el informe del nombre de la persona. Los casos más recientes fueron y, siguen siendo presentados a la Junta de Revisión de la Arquidiócesis, una junta independiente formada por expertos laicos, que revisan los casos y, hacen recomendaciones. Para casos anteriores, la forma en que se denunciaron e investigaron las denuncias varió. Esta es una debilidad que fue corregida por los obispos en 2002 con la Carta para la Protección de Niños y Jóvenes.

Un equipo de más de diez mujeres y hombres, que incluía personal y profesionales legales externos, revisaron los archivos de 2,432 sacerdotes que han servido en la Arquidiócesis de Nueva Orleáns desde 1950. Para los sacerdotes con acusaciones recibidas después de su muerte, otras personas revisaron el archivo para asegurar precisión, en la medida de lo posible después de la muerte. De los 2,432 sacerdotes que han servido en la Arquidiócesis de Nueva Orleáns desde 1950, la revisión identificó a 57 que están incluidos en este informe. Esta lista completa se ha entregado al Fiscal de Distrito de Orleans Parish, y se pondrá a disposición de cualquier otro Fiscal de Distrito.

Algunos se sorprenderán al ver el nombre de un sacerdote que sirvió en su parroquia, o que personalmente lo conocía muy bien. A medida que experimente esta decepción, les elevo al Señor y, le pido que les dé consuelo y su paz.

Desde que se estableció la Carta para la Protección de Niños y Jóvenes en 2002, el número de casos se ha reducido significativamente. La mayoría de las acusaciones son de incidentes que ocurrieron hace décadas, incluso hasta hace 70 años. No ha habido una acusación fundamentada de abuso sexual de un menor cometido en más de una década por un miembro del clero en el ministerio en la Arquidiócesis de Nueva Orleáns. De acuerdo con el Informe anual sobre la aplicación de la Carta para la protección de Niños y Jóvenes, en los Estados Unidos, durante los últimos dos años, se han presentado ocho acusaciones fundamentadas de abuso por parte del clero. Hay 33,917 sacerdotes actualmente en los Estados Unidos; por lo tanto, .025% de los sacerdotes, han tenido acusaciones fundamentadas contra ellos.

Si bien, solo un caso de abuso sexual es demasiado, estas estadísticas evidencian que nuestro Programa de Ambiente Seguro de verificaciones de antecedentes para aquellos que trabajan con menores de edad, capacitaciones para adultos y niños, y extensas pruebas psicológicas y, formación para seminaristas, ha tenido un gran impacto. Impacto positivo en la protección de nuestros hijos. Uno puede tener la impresión, ya sea de los medios de comunicación o en las redes sociales, de que tal abuso está aumentando en nuestras Iglesias y escuelas hoy en día. Esto es simplemente falso.

Sería negligente si no extendiera mi más sincero agradecimiento al clero muy bueno y fiel, que sirve en la Arquidiócesis de Nueva Orleáns. Diariamente, se dan a sí mismos para dirigir y servir al pueblo de Dios. Mis hermanos, gracias mientras continúan pastoreando al pueblo de Dios hoy. También, agradezco a todos aquellos que apoyan a nuestro clero, y aprecian su ministerio.

Hemos hecho todo lo posible para que este informe sea lo más preciso y completo posible. Si alguien desea plantear una pregunta sobre alguien que no está en la lista, lo invito a que se presente. El número de teléfono del coordinador de asistencia a las víctimas Br. Stephan Synan, F.M.S. al (504) 522-5019. Si es necesario, la lista se actualizará si se presentan otros casos.

Por nuestros pecados del pasado, pedimos su perdón, y la misericordia de Dios. Nuestro pecado es público, y nos llama a ser líderes de la Iglesia, al arrepentimiento para que nuestra Iglesia pueda experimentar la renovación.

Como Iglesia, nuestro fundación es Jesucristo. Es su Iglesia y, lo ha sido por más de 2,000 años. A pesar de nuestros pecados, Él no abandonará a la Iglesia, sino que nos guiará hacia la sanación y la renovación.

Deseándole la paz de Dios, estoy

Sinceramente en Cristo,
El más reverendo 

Gregory M. Aymond
Arzobispo de Nueva Orleáns
