Boy X: "There were a times I didn’t take communion. I felt shame in that, being the only one not to." "I felt so guilty. I began hurting myself but in a way that no-one could see. The guilt just increased with thoughts of suicide,there is no end to it."

When the Comboni Order could no longer conceal Fr. Pinkman's abuse of children at the Order's child seminary at Mirfield, UK, Pinkman was moved to a Comboni Ugandan mission. Pinkman was put in charge of the boy scout movement.

After the Comboni, boy scout priest's death, the Combonis held a celebratory mass in honour of his work and life. This mass took place in the Comboni seminary chapel in Mirfield - the same place where the priest was moved from for abusing children.

Comboni, Bob Hicks was the preacher at the Mirfield Mass in memory of Fr. Pinkman. He knew Pinkman was a paedophile. He spoke about his great missionary work. Nothing said about the abuse in Pinkman's room directly opposite the Mirfield chapel doors. I know, I was at the Mass.

My Father was devoted to Catholicism. If I had ever told him a Catholic priest had locked me in a room for 2 weeks & abused twice a day - it would have devastatingly shattered his heart & mind. I told my Mother after his death. She almost fell to the ground & I had to support her

I think Scicluna is ' up against it,' when engaging with orders like the Italian Comboni Missionary Order about abuse. In my experience, the behaviour of the Combonis towards victims/ survivors of abuse epitomizes clericalism and all that is wrong within parts of the church.

Scicluna: "The stories help people realize we are all in this together" No, we are not "in this together. Comboni Missionaries refuse to enter in to a dialogue with survivors & the Disciplinary Office of the CDF, which you are part of, have not acknowledged Comboni abuse docs.

Bishop Scicluna, Nov 2018, you handed to the Disciplinary Office of the CDF two Brian Hennessy, 200 pg, docs that outlined 1000 + allegations of CSA at the Comboni UK child seminary. Can the Comboni Survivor Group have an update? via

"It is at the level of profound vulnerability that we must connect with those who have been harmed. If we do not, then we will be tempted to relate to victims at worst defensively or at best dispassionately, as an inconvenience to be endured."

Took me 25 yrs. Many wait until their parents have died. Many live in fear that because they were abused they, too, are going to become abusers. Shame, guilt and fear prevent many from ever speaking up. For example Boy X. Read his post and others below.

BOY X from the Comboni Missionriy child seminary only told a couple of people and that was just before he died. Read his posts on the Blog below.

..take decades to talk about the abuse they had experienced as the primary concern of perpetrators was to swear them to silence “with all the means at hand”. If & when the victims finally got round to to talking about the abuse, they underwent a second “massive” trauma, he said.

"....described in detail how, after listening to abuse victims over the past 20 or so years, he had come to the conclusion that clerical spiritual & sexual abuse – but above all the abuse of clerical power – was a “massive reality” in the Catholic Church.

A document concerning the Comboni allegations of 1000 carimes of abuse against UK child seminarians was presented to the Pope's Private Office a year ago. There has been no response from the Pope and Vatican Curia.

..and Fr. Devenish, not meeting with victims/survivors during IICSA showed you are afraid. It showed you fear the truth & you fear the future and all that your life has stood for in the past. If you don't have integrity, honesty & soundness of character what do you have? Nothing.

Many hope that compassion, empathy and truth will come from the Comboni Order's responses towards those children abused by clerics at their UK child seminary at Mirfield. That, so far, has not happened. Provincial Devenish, refused to meet with survivors at IICSA this month.
