The abbey said they have no other incidents or allegations filed against him.1
What about the other, very credible accusation which the Abbey, and coincidentally the press, is ignoring? We'd made mention earlier that Andert had preyed upon a young man who recently committed suicide. There's also evidence of Andert's grooming his alleged victim with his odd love letters. There is no mention of this by any of the news media.
It is possible that after they determine that the accusation isn't credible, they'll reinstate Andert as Prior.
We also gotta ask... Where are the dissident leftists like Father Michael Tegeder, who were so vocal when Archbishop Nienstedt was being attacked relentlessly by the national and local news media? The national news media doesn't seem to care on this count. They weren't very helpful during the Marriage Amendment, either.
Josh Guimond is still missing and St. John's Abbey is still an organ of error and deceitfulness.
Abbot John continues to tell pants on fire lies.
He has known about how incorrigible Tom Andert is for years. The entire SJP class of 1995 was outraged, and let him know this when one of Andert's victims, former SJP student Ben Spanier committed suicide last December, 20 years after Ander mightily abused and harassed him. Where is the Vatican on St. John's Abbey? This place should be shuttered and staffed with new monks here in central Minnesota. Enough is enough.
One knows the apostates are running things when - the FFI is persecuted and suppressed while this foul place is left to continue in being.
The Devil protects his own, Lynda.
It's a stronghold of gayness, and therefore can do no wrong.
It's the capital of homosexuality in middle America. It was forty-five years ago when I went there, and I'm sure they haven't changed their stripes. It also was the site to propagate the Novos Ordo and all that surrounded the council. Hmmmm....
It will be closed in a few years, no more than 10 years left for Saint John's. Had close to 300 monks before Vatican II, today barely 120. All the radical liberal Benedictine abbies and priories of monks and sisters in the USA will be gone within the same period. Only traditional cloisters and monasteries like Clear Creek, Regina Laudis and afew others will remain.
Sister Joan Chittister and her radical Benedictine sisters, and Saint John's will soo be only bad memories....as will Pope Francis.
If only the Abbot would start celebrating the Traditional Rite. Then Rome would intervene and appoint an Apostolic Visitor to examine the whole mess.
Nest of Vipers that place. It should be closed.
It should be burned to the ground and the smoldering earth salted.
Then the presiding 'clergy' should spend the rest of their sorry days in a maximum facility prison.
One thing I cannot understand about the Collegeville scandal is this: Isn't there supposed to be a Benedictine Abbot who is in charge of the whole Benedictine world? I could be wrong about this. You know, an "overlord" boss Abbot in charge of all? So, why then doesn't this overlord Abbot not pull the plug on this Collegeville? Surely this St John's Abbey is a complete embarrassment to the Benedictine world?
It surely can't be that his homosexuality is that powerful...?
Whoops, I meant to say:
It surely can't be that THIS homosexuality is that powerful...?
He's too busy trying to be a rock star.
Each abbey is autonomous. Abbeys do have congregations. St. John’s belongs to the American-Cassinese, and all (I think) Benedictines do look to the Abbot Primate as a unifying entity. I don't believe he can directly interfere with the life of any abbey over and above the abbey's abbot. This has its good effects as well as deficiencies. An abbot is essentially “the bishop” in and of the community, not merely a superior. I believe what I have offered is essentially correct.
Independent of Catholicism, you mean?
Thanks for replying.
It's not so much the sodomy as the satanists who create the culture surrounding it.
