There are no correct statistics on this because the Catholic Church has hidden many of these cases of child molestation and just relocated some priests that have been charged with child molestation. We will never know how many of these so-called servants of God have molested children and that in itself is a blight against the Catholic Church.

I once read online every 5 minutes a child gets molested. Sad and depressing, I know.
It was one boy in 1993, then another in 2003. One of the kids parents wanted money and the other kid was mad at Michael because he was avoiding him.

Most priests are not child molestors. Moreover, no priest is achild molestor if he is a Christian. Any that do practice suchabhorrent behaviour are not truly Christian and qui…te likely findthe Christian' tag a convenient one to hide their anti-Christlikebehaviour behind.

A:What ought to happen is that his superiors report their suspicions to the police or other relevant civil authorities as soon as they have any reason to believe that a crime …has been committed, and the police investigate and determine whether a prosecution should take place. What should happen is that the Church cooperates fully and in every way with any police investigation. In some jusridictions, senior clergy could face severe penalties for failing to provide information to the police, although to date these laws have almost never been enacted against members of the clergy. What really happens is that the Church authorities conduct their own internal investigation, following which the paedophile priest could face internal discipline, although perhaps he could avoid any punishment for his first known offence if he sincerely repents, confesses his sin and promises not to reoffend. In any case, the penalties he could face are surprisingly light, limited at maximum to dismissal "if the case so warrants." The Church's Code of Canon Law 1395:2 sets out the penalties to be imposed for the most serious sex crimes a priest could commit: "A cleric who has offended in other ways against the sixth commandment of the Decalogue, if the crime was committed by force, or by threats, or in public, or with a minor under the age of sixteen years, is to be punished with just penalties, not excluding dismissal from the clerical state if the case so warrants." This may be changing in some jurisdictions, as a result of public and legal pressure. There is a chance that a child who comes forward will receive support, justice and pastoral care from the Church authorities. However, it still seems to be the case in other jurisdictions that the child will be pointedly disbelieved or perhaps paid a sum of money in return for silence.

A: It may well be that in countries with strong civil institutions, the Catholic Church will cooperate with the civil authorities in cases where a priest has already been expo…sed. In my opinion, the Church is unlikely ever to name priests it knows to have molested children unless the priest is likely to be exposed publicly in any case, without the Church's involvement. So I think that there could be instances where the Church will name a priest publicly if by doing so they can preempt the inevitable and thereby claim the high moral ground. . Answer Please go to the Vatican website (Vatican.va) and do a search for child sexual abuse, reporting child sexual abuse, preventing child sexual abuse, etc. and you will find dozens and dozens of documents listed over the years addressing the problem. The problem of priests molesting children has been addressed and is being addressing. This is a horrible problem and an horrendous crime, and there is no one in the world more energetic and concerned than the Holy Father: to read how he addressed these problems in Ireland and Germany alone will do a great deal to impress upon you the seriousness with which the Holy Father and the Vatican take these allegations. Keep in mind that legally this must be dealt with in each individual diocese and the appropriate law enforcement in that diocese. The buck stops with the individual bishop, so to speak, and it is he, ultimately, who is responsible for the priests' behavior in his diocese.
The Catholic Sex Abuse List on the Internet claims to list all the priests ever convicted of molesting someone. They list, as of March 2013, 424 convicted priests. There wer…e 419,728 priests in the Catholic Church in 1970 and there are between 4,000 and 6,000 ordinations a year. As of 2010 there were 412,236 priests.
