Bishop Magee the pedophilia link of John Paul II. VIDEOS Bishop Magee covered-up Cloyne Diocese pedophile priests during JP2 and Benedict XVI papacy
Bishop Magee the only bishop cited and condemned in the recent Cloyne Diocese Report
Another living proof that John Paul II knew about the existence of pedophile priests during his 27 years papacy (in addition to Cardinal Bernard Law and Fr. Marcial Maciel) was through his personal secretary, Bishop Magee, who covered up 19 pedophile priests in the Cloyne Diocese. Bishop Magee served as personal secretary to 3 popes, Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II — from 1969 to 1982. He then served as John Paul II's master of ceremonies until 1987.
John Paul II personally knew about the 80 pedophile priest in Boston whom Cardinal Bernard Law confessed in public in 2002 that he covered-up for decades and transferred them from one parish to another. John Paul II died in 2005. Imagine that now, in Canada, it is being revealed that 22 pedophile priests had hundreds of victims, read our related article Canada: 22 priests, hundreds of victims. Oh, when the JP2 Army keeps marching on this Earth, JP2 is rotting in Hell http://jp2army.blogspot.com/2011/05/canada-22-priests-hundreds-of-victims.html Therefore, how many more hundreds or thousands can 80 pedophile priests have in Boston. That is why Cardinal Bernard Law was forced to resign – by the laity and by his own priests – but John Paul II papal farted at us Bostonians by elevating Law as Archpriest of the St. Mary Major –that is right as “Crown Prince” of Rome, just like the new “Crown Prince of Venice”, read our related article here John Allen promotes monarchy of Catholicism.

JP2 Army - 15,736 victims - 6,000 pedophile priests - John Paul II & Benedict XVI & Opus Dei, the new Vatican Trinity
Opus Dei controlled the 27 years papacy of John Paul II and is therefore the foremost guilty party who aided and abetted and covered-up the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army. Opus Dei wrote most of John Paul II’s books and writings and to ensure their perpetuity as “All things Catholic”, they want JP2 to be beatified and canonized now by Benedict XVI so as not to take any chances on other future popes. The FACE of Opus Dei is John Paul II and the PHANTOM Spirit of Opus Dei is their founder St. Josemaria Escriva, read our related article John Paul II, Patron of Pederasts and Opus Dei – analysis of Joaquin Navarro-Valls’ reasons for JP2 beatification at Opus Dei conference in Rome http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/narcissism-and-grandiosity-of-john-paul.html
The 15,736 victims is from the recent report of the US Catholic Bishops Conference harmed by almost 6,000 pedophile priests.

Irish bishop resigns amid sex abuse scandal
Cleric shielded abuser’s identity from police, investigators found
DUBLIN — Pope Benedict XVI accepted the resignation of an Irish bishop Wednesday for his failure to report child-molesting priests to police — and faced a renewed reminder of the German abuse case most closely linked to his own time in charge of Munich.
Bishop John Magee — who served as secretary to Benedict's three papal predecessors before returning to Ireland in 1987 — apologized to victims of any pedophile priests who were kept in parish posts during his 23 years overseeing the southwest Irish diocese of Cloyne.
"To those whom I have failed in any way, or through any omission of mine have made suffer, I beg forgiveness and pardon," the 73-year-old Magee said in his resignation statement. Irish government investigators are continuing to explore Cloyne abuse cover-ups and expect to report findings later this year.
The Vatican is on the defensive over ever-unfolding accusations that church leaders have protected child abusers for decades in many countries.
Benedict last week issued an unprecedented letter to Ireland addressing the 16 years of church cover-up scandals here. But he has yet to say anything about his handling
of the Rev. Peter Hullermann, the case known to have developed on the pope's watch when, as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, he oversaw the Munich Archdiocese from 1977 to 1982.
Munich Archdiocese spokesman Bernhard Kellner said Wednesday a new person has come forward claiming to have been abused in 1998 by Hullermann. Kellner gave no other details.
Hullermann had been accused of abusing boys in Essen, western Germany, in the 1970s when Ratzinger approved his 1980 transfer to Munich to receive psychological treatment for pedophilia. Until recent years the church in many countries referred child abusers in the priesthood to private clinics — and not the police — when accused of crimes.
Hullermann was convicted in 1986 of abusing a youth, but church officials insist the new abuse happened after Ratzinger was already promoted to higher duties in the Vatican. Hullerman recently was removed again from parish duties after he was discovered still to be in regular contact with children.
Panel assembled to investigate
In a related development, the German government announced Wednesday it is forming a 40-strong panel of experts to investigate the extent of child abuse in Catholic and other institutions for children. The commission will be asked to recommend reforms to Germany's current statutes of limitations so that abuse victims can pursue priests and other church officials for civil damages and criminal liability.
Irish society is still debating the merits of Saturday's message from Benedict apologizing for decades of unchecked child abuse by priests, nuns and other clerics. The letter criticized Irish bishops, promised a Vatican inspection of unspecified dioceses and religious orders in Ireland — but accepted no Vatican responsibility for promoting a culture of cover-up.
Benedict also has yet to accept resignation offers from three other Irish bishops who were linked to cover-ups of child-abuse cases in the Dublin Archdiocese, the subject of a government-ordered investigation that published its findings four months ago.
Magee had been expected to resign ever since an Irish church-commissioned investigation into the mishandling of child-abuse reports in Cloyne ruled two years ago that Magee and his senior diocesan aides failed to tell police quickly about two 1990s cases.
The church and government suppressed publication of that report until December 2008. Magee immediately faced calls to quit from victims' rights activists and some parishioners. They accused him of ignoring an Irish church policy enacted in 1996 requiring all abuse cases to be reported to police.
Magee remained Cloyne bishop in name but transferred day-to-day responsibilities to his superior, Archbishop Dermot Clifford, in March 2009.
Cardinal Sean Brady, leader of Ireland's 4 million Catholics, offered prayers and praise for Magee.
"However, foremost in my thoughts in these days are those who have suffered abuse by clergy and those who feel angry and let down by the often-inadequate response of leaders in the church," Brady said.
Brady, a Vatican-trained canon lawyer, faces his own cover-up accusations. He has admitted collecting evidence in 1975 from two altar-boy victims of a notorious pedophile priest — but had both boys sign confidentiality agreements and never passed his information to police. That priest, Brendan Smyth, wasn't imprisoned until 1994 after molesting scores of children in Ireland and the United States. Brady confessed his sense of shame in his St. Patrick's Day sermon.
The church's Cloyne report found that Magee and his diocesan deputies fielded complaints from parishioners about two priests from 1995 onward — but told the police nothing until 2003 and little thereafter. The report said Cloyne church authorities appeared solely concerned with helping the two priests, not protecting children of the diocese.
One priest, who was accused of molesting a younger priest when he was a teenager, was encouraged by Magee to resign. But the investigation found that the bishop shielded the abuser's identity from police — and considered such concealment "the normal practice" for the church.
The other priest, a career guidance counselor in a convent school, was accused by several teenage girls and grown women of molesting or raping them since 1995. One complaint came from a woman who had a consensual sexual relationship with the priest for a year — then saw him develop an intimate relationship with her 14-year-old son.
The church has declined to identify the two priests publicly by name. Neither has faced any criminal charges.
Magee, who was born in the Northern Ireland border town of Newry, served as a private secretary to three successive popes — Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II — from 1969 to 1982. He then served as John Paul II's master of ceremonies until 1987.

Bishop Magee did Vatican bidding by covering up Cloyne pedophile priests - VIDEO
At the heart of the Bishop of Cloyne affair is a dark reality that is truly shocking.
Bishop John Magee was carrying out Vatican orders when he delegated the responsibility for the pedophile priests in his diocese to an underling and allowed him to overlook the worst abusers.
One wonders what pressing tasks the Bishop had that were so urgent that he could turnover such a critical and vital task to an underling.
Now we know why -so the Vatican fingerprints would not be on it.
The Vatican has long refused to sign off on the strict code of conduct put together by the Irish church after the sordid revelations about the past emerged. The key one was to report all suspected pedophiles to police.
As a Vatican man, through and through, Magee was following Vatican orders.
The Cloyne cover-up began into events that happened after the worst of the previous excesses were in the public domain and the Irish church had issued new firm guidelines which included giving any information to police.
Papal nuncio 'very distressed' over Ireland's Cloynes report
Bishop of Cloyne apologizes from American hideaway
Irish Priests face five years in jail if they fail to report child abuse
Magee is a Vatican creation, however, secretary to three popes and a man on his way to the top of the irish church until some internal scandal derailed him and sent him to Cloyne instead. He was still taking their orders however.
We can guess what his own scandal was after he attempted to kiss a 17-year old seminary student and said he dreamed about him, a fact included in the Murphy report
But he clearly never forgot his Vatican roots. It is a place where the current Pope has much to answer for on this issue, where Cardinal Law of Boston, a notorious enabler of pedophiles was promoted, where Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin, the most courageous cleric standing in the face of this pedophile scandal, has been ignored and belittled.
The Irish government called in the Papal Nuncio in Ireland yesterday and demanded a Vatican response saying it was 'absolutely unacceptable' that the Vatican had intervened in Ireland and discouraged priests from reporting crimes against innocent children.
Foreign Minister Gilmore said what happened in Ireland was 'a totally inappropriate, unjustified, unacceptable intervention'.
'This is modern Ireland and this was a recent occasion of abuse of children and this was a recent intervention by Vatican authorities,' he said.
Once Irish governments would have quaked at the very presence of the Papal Nuncio, but no more.
Now the chairman of the Fine Gael party Charlie Flanagan, son of the most devout Catholic legislator in Irish history, Oliver Flanagan, called for the Papal Nuncio to be expelled
The nuncio's response was a polite buzz off, regretting the scandal but promising little.
Like the House of Bourbon the Vatican has learned nothing and remembered nothing.
Magee, now happily vacationing somewhere in America knows he has served his true lord and masters and to hell with the little children.
It is beyond cynicism and belief.
