The Roman Curia by Mediation of:

H.E. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect
Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith

Piazza del Santo Uffizio, 11
00193 Rome

cc. US Conference of Catholic Bishops

Peace be with you, Cardinal Ratzinger!

When I left Salamanca, Spain, the population of the whole Province was undergoing the trauma of another pedophilia scandal. This time involving an Agustino Recoleto, who taught in their school.

There were well-publicized public demonstrations in the city of Salamanca against child sexual abuse.

I arrive in Houston, Texas, and stumble upon an even greater and more scandalous case of child sexual abuse and cover-up involving the Roman Catholic Church in the City of Dallas, Texas. (1)

Cardinal Ratzinger, In the Name of God I admonish the Roman Curia through you: This has to stop at any cost.

The Church can dispense of half of its clergy and hierarchy if that is what is going to take to stop this massive destruction of souls and the little Faith that is left; precisely, the souls and the Faith that the Roman Catholic Church was entrusted with by Jesus Christ Himself.

You and the Roman Curia are, once again, ecouraged to carefully meditate on the wisdom of Gamaliel as exemplified in the Acts of the Apostles, Chapter V, verses 34-39.

At His Service, thus at yours, I remain simply...

A Follow Up Memorandum of August 5th


To: H.E. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger
From: miguel de Portugal
Date: Tuesday, August 05, 1997

Subject: Sexual Misconduct of Clergy

May the Peace of God and the Consolations of the Immaculate Heart of Mary be yours always!

The enclosed documentation:

1. Letter to The National (U.S.A.) Conference of Catholic Bishops ; and

2. A selection of excerpts from letters issued in the past years regarding the problem at hand.

Is self explanatory.

I know that we can count with the swift action of The Vatican to quickly resolve this matter .

As we both know and understand, the material components of any Faith is not worth keeping in place if satan is the (temporary) winner. He who would not serve, will serve; and serve, he will!

At the Service of God, thus, at yours, I remain simple....
