A former priest who sexually abused two 13-year-old boys in the 1970s in Dublin and Kildare has received an 18-month jail sentence today.

Patrick McCabe (aged 77) told gardaí that one of the boys who he abused in a car outside a school in 1977 met the “requirements” of his “fetish”.

The other boy was abused in a house adjoining the Pro-Cathedral in Dublin at the time of the Pope’s visit in 1979.

The former priest has previously received an 18-month sentence at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court for indecently assaulting young boys.

This sentence has been backdated to June 2011, when he went into custody following his extradition from California to meet abuse charges.

About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.
