The gay predator priest Urrutigoity protected by the former Anglican Bishop Williamson-‘Cunctator[1]’ with the Rose[2] [2]

A gay priest, ordained in the SSPX, protected by Bishop Williamson and denounced by Bishop Fellay

What does this protection mean? Why did it last so long? (10 years)

Do we have to consider from now on the hypothesis of a gay network having infiltrated the SSPX?

Would Bishop Williamson prefer being gay more than thinking the « sedevacantist » way?


The peculiar facts concerning Bishop Williamson keep building up. More and more actions and connections are coming to light about the one time Cambridge[4] graduate bishop, revealing his real face, instead of that of the man who unconditionally opposes the affiliation and the Conciliar Church that he pretends to be.

His acts show Bishop Williamson to be a decoy, plotting with Fr. Schmidberger, playing the part of expelling from the SPPX each priest suspected of sedevacantist sympathies, and to attract the real opponents into the arms of the Rome of the « antichrists », meanwhile counteracting them.

Exactly this way he has got the supervision of the Le Sel de la terre magazine of the dominicans of Avrillé.

Earlier, we revealed the Anglican-Fabien Society, globalist environment of his mentor, Malcolm Muggeridge[5].

Then, his unusual episcopal coat of arms, with its obviously rosi+crucian[6] symbolism.

Now, a priest who was well acquainted with Bishop Williamson, has revealed to us on top of that the protection that the latter has given to Fr. Urrutigoity[7], presently entangled in several legal procedures, accused of homosexual assaults on various victims in catholic colleges or seminaries[8].

Book of Mrs Engel – Fr. Carlos Urrutigoity at the elevation

Mrs Randy Engel tells us more in her book « The Rite of Sodomy », published in 2006 in the US. In a total of 1318 pages and 4523 notes, the American investigation journalist Randy Engel[9] documents the background of pederast networks at the heart of the catholic Church since more than 100 years.

This monumental work of investigation examines the network of Cambridge and its ties with the British secret services, particularly MI5.

Also, she exposes the question of the homosexuality of Montini-Paul VI and the countless accusations against him, to start with those brought forward by Fr. de Nantes in 1969 and in 1993.

In her book Randy Engel dedicates several pages to the Urrutigoity affair and the part of Bishop Williamson, implying Bishop de Galaretta.

You will find this text in appendix.

These pages describe with very crude details that make distressing reading, the horrible reality of the acts committed by Fr. Urritigoity.

We have decided to publish Mrs Engel’s text uncensored, because of the horrible seriousness of the facts, and we categorically refuse to cover with « Noah’s mantle » these dismal and scandalous practices that under the pretext of « piety » and not wanting to « scandalise the faithful », for such a long time have been kept hidden for the faithful obstinately, whilst the infiltrated actors too often have been profiting from the cover of laxity and culpable leniety from the side of the religious authorities and who have, thanks to such behaviour of those in charge, ended up in ruining the Church totally.


From Mendoza in Argentine, Carlos Urrutigoity went to study in the seminary of La Reja (Argentine – SSPX).

His homosexual tendencies and his attacks on chastity were detected in 1987 by the then superior of the seminary of La Reja, Fr. Morello, who set up a file against him and asked for his removal.

Fr. de Galaretta, at that time superior of the District of South America of the SSPX, and « other influential priests » of the SSPX, immediately stepped in to protect the pederast seminarist.

According to a hand written note of Fr. Morello, Bishop de Galaretta intervened to protect Urrutigoity after having been asked to by the Calderon family.

Later, Bishop Williamson justified this behaviour of Bishop de Galaretta when speaking to dr. Bond (the superior of the Saint Justin Martyr college, who made the affair public). He said that a sedevacantist danger was imminent, which made Fr. Morello appeal to the District of South America.

This action of Fr. Morello was followed by a fast transfer of Fr. Urrutigoity to the priory of the SSPX of Cordoba (Argentine), allowing him to get a recommendation and to have him self « whitewashed ». Then, in 1989, Bishop Williamson welcomed him to the seminary of Winona in the US.

During this peripateia, Fr. Morello was temporarily removed, in the first semester of 1989, to Santiago de Chili, whilst Fr. Schmidberger was superior of the SSPX and decided about mutations.

Bishop Williamson made Fr. Urrutigoity write a letter of self justification as soon as he arrived in Winona in 1989, and Bishop Williamson-‘Cunctator’ with the Rose handed it personally over to Archbishop Lefebvre, asking and receiving his authorisation for the admission of Urrutigoity to Winona. The archbishop, so obviously « used » by Bishop Williamson, demanded of Bishop Williamson to watch the suspected seminarist « with an eagle’s eye ».

At the eve of the ordination of Fr. Urrutigoity in 1989, Fr. Morello personally went to Winona to denounce Fr. Urrutigoity, whom Bishop Williamson defended because of the « humility » of Urrutigoity. He even called Fr. Morello a « liar ». Fr. Morello then was accused of « sedevacantism », and in the days following his impromptu visit to Bishop Williamson, he was expelled from the SSPX.

In the autumn of 1993, Fr. Urrutigoity became professor of dogma, latin and sacred music at the seminary of Winona. This promotion of Fr. Urrutigoity was followed by important attempts in the seminary of Winona to improve the Gregorian chant of the seminarists. On top of that, Fr. Urrutogoity distinguished himself by insisting on « experiments » in the liturgy, showing himself in favour of the reformded rite of 1965; these positions should be seen in relation with the letter of Fr. La Rocque (SSPX) in January 2007, when he favoured adaptations of the traditional rite of the Mass.

From the end of 1993 until 1997, the fermentation developed amongst the seminarists so heavily, that in mid 1997 questions of liturgy and sacred chant became subjects of profound discord between the seminarists. The doctrine of Fr. Urrutigoity favouring a return to a idealised and romanticised « medieval model » form which would have to be distracted that what he considered as « excesses » of the catholic Counter Reformation that resulted form the Council of Trent. This new doctrine of liturgy and sacred chant attracted around this person, from then considered a guru, a small network of seminarists, that he planned to organise as a secret association amongst the seminarist. It would reject what he considered as tridentine « deviations », that are however nothing but the glories of the Church.

Finally, after the agitation of Fr. Urrutigoity had been going on, and his project to found a new community had been rejected by Bishop Fellay, he was expelled from Winona in 1997. Bishop Williamson qualified Fr. Urrutigoity as a « young, talented but proud Argentine priest ».

At the heart of the conciliar Church, under the aegis of ‘Bishop’ Timlin, he then founded the SSJ (Society Saint John) showing a traditional spirit in liturgy and Gregorian chant, and that soon found itself compromised by sexual scandals.

At last, the moral misery piling up, Fr. Urrutigoity was questioned and dragged before the tribunal by a courageous layman, Dr. Bond, superior of the Saint Justin Martyr college, (affiliated to the SSJ), who, trying to alarm « Bishop » Timlin in vain, and resisting all menaces, campaigned to bring the truth to the fore and withdrew his college from the trusteeship of the SSJ in October 2001.

All these facts, although they have been reported by Dr. Bond in 2001 to « cardinal » Castrillon Hoyos, head of the roman dicastery of the Congregation of the Clergy, have been covered by great silence and the SSJ has been protected by the authorities of the conciliar Church.

Despite this procedure and the irruption in public of all these sexual scandals caused by Fr. Urrutigoity, the pretended conciliar ’bishop’ Timlin went on covering Urrutigoity.

In February 1999, Bishop Fellay wrote a letter denouncing Fr. Urrutigoity.

Bishop Williamson went on to keep silent in public about this affair, only Bishop Fellay having reacted by an official writing to the conciliar authorities.

There came no end to the complaints and denunciations against the SSJ, Fr. Urrutigoity and against Fr. Marschall Roberts (a defector of the Institute of Christ the King received by the SSJ). One victim claimed 1 million dollars of damage with interest in 2002.

From then on there is a web site that contains all pieces of this dossier against Fr. Urrutigoity and the SSJ (cf. Annex 2).

Father Urugoity found refuge near the conciliar « bishop » of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay, « Bishop » Rogelio Livieres Plano. Once more he found him self protected by a letter of this pretended conciliar ‘bishop’ who wrote on the 8th of September 2006 a piece of mail in order to support the SSJ.


From 1987 onward, Fr. Urrutigoity drew the attention of the superior of the seminary of La Reja, because of manifest pride, keeping « particular friendships », setting up a group of disciples, and because of homosexual tendencies and moral scandals.

At La Reja, he committed acts of touching the genitals of the seminarists at night, in their rooms, during their sleep, or in the toilets, he bathed almost naked in front of the seminarists, made shocking proposals to them, complained during confessions to evoke temptations of impurity and moral matters.

Fr. Carlos Urrutigoity[10]

A former disciple of Fr. Urrutigoity at Winona, the ex-seminarist Matthew Selinger, accused Fr. Urrutigoity in 1999 of having invited him to introduce a suppository in front of him, of having bathed naked in his presence, or even to have crept at night into his room to touch him while he slept.

Randy Engel underlines quite rightly that the use that Urrutigoity made of suppositories reminds one of the techniques of the Anglican theosophical « priest » and pederast Charles Webster[11] Leadbeater, narrowly linked to the circles of the British secret societies and to the Rosi+Crucian lodges. In these British occultist circles he practiced techniques of sexual magic. We already mentioned this in our file dedicated to the entourage of Malcolm Muggeridge[12], the mentor of Bishop Williamson.

In 1998 official accusations commenced in the US against the sexual extortions of Fr. Urrutigoity. During the same year the SSJ, headed by the Argentine father, decided to integrate a priest expelled from the Institute of Christ the King because of moral problems.

In March 1998 the police had to intervene, at the demand of Fr. Paul Carr (Saint-Peter Fraternity), because priests of the SSJ had distributed alcohol to minors.

From August 2001 Dr. Bond, director of the Saint Justin Martyr college, made attempts to denounce the SSJ and Fr. Urrutigoity in front of the conciliar authorities.

On October 14, 2001, Dr. Bond cut the ties that linked the college he headed and the SSD, from which it depended, in order to protect the adolescents.

On November 19, 2001, Dr. denounced Fr. Urrutigoity by means of letters to the apostolic nuncio in the United States and to ‘cardinal’ Castrillon Hoyos.

On November 21 Fr. Urrutigoity menaced Dr. Bond.

This attempt with Castrillon Hoyos seems to have had no result. We already explained that « cardinal » Castrillon Hoyos intervened at the American ‘bishop’ Conference in order to dissuade him form sanctioning the paedophile conciliar ‘priests’, and this in the name of « compassion ».

Castrillon Hoyos seems to play a part in protecting conciliar clercymen involved in moral affairs.[13]

On January 12, 2002, the diocese of Scranton receives an accusation of a victim of moral disbehaviour of Fr. Urrutigoity.

On February 6, 2002, Fr. Marshall Roberts is charged with a moral affair.

On March 20, 2002, a former student accuses the SSJ, the Saint-Peter Fraternity and the diocese of Scranton.
He claims one million dollars in damage and interest.

"Guru-tigoity" Exposed as a Homosexual Predator

In February 11, 1999, Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X sent a formal communication to Bishop Timlin in-forming him that Father Carlos Urrutigoity had been accused of molesting a seminarian under his spiritual care at the SSPX's St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minn.

Bishop Fellay also indicated that in 1987, prior to Urrutigoity's accept-ance by the Winona seminary, Fr. Andres Morello, Rector of Our Lady Co-Redemptrix Seminary in La Reja, Argentina had accused the priest of homosexual practices.

According to Fr. Morello, he had intended to expel Urrutigoity from the La Reja seminary because of his significant pride, his habit of forming "par-ticular friendships," his formation of a faction of seminarians acting under his influence and grave denunciations regarding moral matters.176

Among the accusations brought against Urrutigoity by seminarians and laymen living at the La Reja seminary were his uninvited nocturnal Visits into the rooms of young men while they were asleep, the fondling and mas­sage of a seminarian's genitals and buttocks under the guise of a medicai exam, and the touching of the private parts of a seminarian in a restroom

Page 964

accompanied by the remark, that the priest adored his "little round butt." Urrutigoity was also accused of excessive probing during confession and spiritual counseling sessions of the sexual temptations of pénitents; and immodest dress (swimming in his underwear) at a summer camp that he organized for young men from the seminary.177

Unfortunately, the planned dismissal of Urrutigoity by Fr. Morello never took place as the seminarian had the support of Bishop Alfonso de Galar-reta, the SSPX District Superior and other influential priests.

Instead of being expelled, Urrutigoity was sent to the Priory of Cordoba (Argentina) where he received the necessary recommendations that en-abled him to transfer to the SSPX seminary in Winona. By this time Fr. Morello had been posted to Santiago, Chile, so he was temporarily out of the picture.178

However, in July 1989, when Fr. Morello heard of Urrutigoity's immi­nent ordination in Winona, he sent a confidential dossier on the candidate to Rector Richard Williamson at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary. Fearing this effort would not be sufficient to stop the ordination, Father Morello traveled to the seminary in the company of an associate. Upon their arrivai, they were confronted by Williamson with a déniai or "manifestation of con­science," by Urrutigoity who proclaimed his innocence of the charges against him. Williamson defended Urrutigoity's "humility" and accused Morello and his companion of lying.

A few days later, on July 16,1989, Morello who had been involved in an internal dispute with the SSPX on matters unrelated to the Urrutigoity affair, was expelled from the Society.179

Williamson later claimed that Morello was not believed because he was reported to be connected to a sedevacantist group in opposition to Bishop de Galarreta. Nevertheless, Williamson was ordered by his supe­rior, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who had reviewed the Morello dossier to watch Urrutigoity "like a hawk," a virtualïy impossible task given the secretive life of a homosexual predator like Urrutigoity.180

Fr. Urrutigoity had successfully manipulated one traditionalist group against another for his own ends.

Not only was he ordaîned, but he was also assigned to teach at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary were he was known as "Guru-tigoity."181

Little wonder that in his warning letter to Bishop Timlin in February 1999, Bishop Fellay described Urrutigoity as "dangerous" and noted:

The reason why he got into trouble with the Superiore of the Society of St. Pius X is mainly because we felt he had a stränge, abnormal influence on the seminarians and priests, whom he seemed to attach to his brilliant, charismatic personality. When he asked me to recognize the society he intended to found, among the reasons of my refusai, I explicitly mentioned this stränge personal, guru-like attachment between the disciples and their leader.182

Urrutigoity Faces Second Accusation

It was not until two years after Fr. Urrutigoity had been dismissed from St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona for "subversive activities," namely, the secret planning of the Society of St. John, and had settled into the Diocèse of Scranton with temporary quarters at St. Gregory's Academy, that a Winona seminarian came forward to accuse the priest of sexual molestation.

The object of Urrutigoity's attempts at séduction and forced sexual attention was a young man named Matthew Selinger who once idolized the priest. The two men had formed a particular friendship at the seminary and Urrutigoity served as the seminarian's spiritual director for two years before making his move.

Selinger had some stränge taies to tell about Fr. Urrutigoity.

He said that on one occasion he was constipated and went to Fr. Urruti­goity to get some Metamucil. The priest offered him a rectal suppository instead. Never having used one before, the seminarian thought it was an oral médication and put it in his mouth. The priest instructed him in its cor­rect use and insisted that the young man insert it in his présence as an act of "humility." Selinger reluctantly resisted the order and went into the bathroom to insert the suppository all the while rebuking himself for not being spiritually mature enough to follow Urrutigoity's orders and crucify his "manly pride."183

On another occasion, Urrutigoity invited Selinger and his friend to swim with him in the nude.

One night, the young seminarian awoke from his sleep to find the priest kneeling by his side massaging his genitals hard enough to produce an érec­tion. Selinger said his first instinct was to punch the priest's lights out, but because Fr. Urrutigoity was an Alter Christus, another Christ, he turned over and pretended to go back to sleep while Urrutigoity quietly slipped away into the darkness.184

The novel use of rectal suppositories as part of Urrutigoity's grooming répertoire is reminiscent of the grooming techniques employed by the early 20th Century theosophist/pederast Charles Webster Leadbeater.

Leadbeater promoted enemas, genital manipulation, and onanism as a means of promoting physical, psychic and spiritual (occult) vigor among his youthful disciples. "This spirituali2ing of paederasty absolves him from the guilt which makes him hate society. ... His is no longer a common human weakness, for he has feit the cleansing fire of divinity," related Gregory Tillet, Leadbeater's biographer.185

By the time that Selinger informed his superiore at Winona that Urruti­goity had sexually molested him, the SSJ founder was safely ensconced as a chaplain at St. Gregory's Academy selecting his next victim from a large pool of young men, who like Selinger before he was molested, literally wor-shipped the ground that Urrutigoity walked on.186

Page 966

In June 1999, a meeting took place in Winona between Matthew Selinger and SSPX Rector Wiliiamson, and the pastoral team that the Diocesan Review Board had assigned to investigate the accusations against Urrutigoity. The pastoral team consisted of Auxiliary Bishop John Dougherty, a diocesan priest, and a lawyer from the Diocèse of Scrantòn.

However, even after reading the Board's report on Selinger's testimony and with the knowledge that this was the second crédible accusation of homosexual séduction and molestation against Urrutigoity, Bishop Timlin decided that the évidence against the SSJ founder was "inconclusive." He took no further action on the matter.187 A classic cover-up was underway led by the Ordinary of the Diocèse of Scrantòn with the coopération of Timlin's silent partner Fr. Devillers, Superior of the FSSP.

Were it not for the courage and détermination of Dr. Jeffrey M. Bond, President of the College of St. Justin Martyr and the moral and legal sup­port given to Dr. Bond by Washington State attorney James M. Bendell, the cover-up may well have succeeded.

Urrutigoity in the Case of John Doe, Fr. Eric Ensey who helped found the SSJ and who replaced Urrutigoity as spiritual advisor for a time at St. Thomas in Winona, paid a visit to Selinger and attempted to persuade him to leave the country to prevent him from being called as a witness against Urrutigoity. He told the former seminarian that Urrutigoity had "a medicai protocol" about the penis. He said that if the priest-founder went down he would take him (Ensey) and the whole order down with him. When thèse arguments failed to move Selinger, Ensey said that Urrutigoity's lawyer had connections to the Mafia—a suggestion that implied that harm might come to Selinger or his family if he testified against the priest. Selinger said he had no intention of leaving his wife and children to escape a subpoena and showed Ensey the door.

On October 14, 2001, the College of St. Justin Martyr formally dissociated itself from the Society of St. John (SSJ), a clerical association in the Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania. Since that time, the College has striven to expose the moral corruption of the SSJ. Although the primary purpose of the College is to establish itself as a great books liberal arts College with an orthodox Catholic character, the College strongly believes it has a moral obligation to prevent the SSJ from doing further harm to young souls and from continuing to deceive Catholic donors.

The College’s moral battle against the SSJ has brought it into direct conflict with Bishop James C. Timlin, who inexplicably persists in supporting and protecting the SSJ despite the overwhelming evidence of sexual and financial misconduct by SSJ members. In retaliation for the College’s efforts to inform the Diocese of the SSJ’s grave misconduct, Bishop Timlin has sought to obstruct and harm the legitimate business and goals of the College. In response to Bishop Timlin’s gratuitous attack, the College has filed lawsuits against the Diocese and the SSJ. Readers are invited to inform themselves of the case against the SSJ by accessing the documents and articles posted herein.

La bataille morale du Collège a débouché sur un conflit direct avec l’évêque James C. Timlin, qui, inexplicablement s’obstine à prendre la défense de la SSJ et à la protéger en dépit des preuves accablantes de l’inconduite sexuelle et financière de ses membres. En représailles des efforts du Collège pour chercher à informer le Diocèse de la grave inconduite de la SSJ, l’évêque Timlin a tenté de bloquer et de porter préjudice à l’administration et aux buts légitimes du Collège. En réponse à cette attaque gratuite de l’évêque Timlin, le Collège a engagé des poursuites judiciaires contre le Diocèse et la SSJ. Les lecteurs sont invités à s’informer par eux-mêmes de l’affaire judiciaire engagée contre la SSJ en se référant aux documents et articles qui ont été mis en ligne ici.

Lettre ouverte du Dr. Jeffrey M. Bond, President du College of St. Justin Martyr, et témoignage de l’abbé Andrés Morello au sujet de l’affaire Urrutigoity

September 2, 2002

Dear Friends,

In a letter dated December 8, 2001, I revealed that Fr. Carlos Urrutigoity, the founder and former superior general of the Society of St. John, had been dismissed for homosexual behavior when he was a seminarian at the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) seminary in La Reja, Argentina. In that same letter, I noted that Urrutigoity, after he had been dismissed from the seminary in La Reja, was admitted as a seminarian into the SSPX seminary in Winona, Minnesota, where he was eventually ordained and made a professor. Finally, I further mentioned that Fr. Urrutigoity was subsequently expelled from the seminary in Winona as a result of his subversive activities.

My letter left many readers with the same question: How could it be that the SSPX dismissed Carlos Urrutigoity for homosexual behavior from one of its seminaries, but subsequently accepted him into another SSPX seminary, and then ultimately ordained him a priest and even made him a professor there?

I put this same question to Bishop Richard Williamson of the SSPX whom I contacted shortly after I learned that Fr. Urrutigoity had been accused of homosexual behavior as far back as his seminary days in La Reja. Bishop Williamson explained to me that Carlos Urrutigoity had indeed been dismissed from the SSPX seminary in La Reja for homosexual behavior, but that he was received into the SSPX seminary in Winona because the key SSPX authorities in North and South American did not believe the charges against him.

According to Bishop Williamson (and others within the SSPX with whom I spoke), the charges against then seminarian Urrutigoity were not believed because of a deep division that was then taking place within the SSPX district in South America. Fr. Andres Morello, the rector of the SSPX seminary in La Reja, was the head of the sedevacantist group. The District Superior, then Fr. Alfonso de Galarreta, led the opposing group. The division was apparently so intense that the two factions avoided each other. As a result, the SSPX authorities—other than Fr. Morello—were willing to believe that the charges of homosexual behavior made against seminarian Urrutigoity were trumped up. Urrutigoity himself claimed that he was being persecuted and slandered because of his stance against Fr. Morello's group.

Bishop Williamson further explained that when seminarian Urrutigoity arrived in Winona, he was questioned and given the opportunity to write a defense, or "manifestation of conscience," in response to the accusations against him. Bishop Williamson then presented Archbishop Lefebvre himself with Urrutigoity's written defense. According to Bishop Williamson, Archbishop Lefebvre, after reading Urrutigoity's defense, told Bishop Williamson to admit Urrutigoity to the seminary, but to "watch him like a hawk."

Bishop Williamson then told me that he never saw any evidence of Urrutigoity's homosexuality while Urrutigoity was a seminarian, priest, or professor at Winona. Bishop Williamson said that Fr. Urrutigoity was eventually expelled from the seminary in Winona not for homosexuality, but for subversive activities, namely, the secret planning of the Society of St. John in concert with others. Bishop Williamson hastened to add, however, that after Fr. Urrutigoity had been expelled from Winona, a young seminarian, who had left Winona with him, subsequently accused Fr. Urrutigoity of homosexually molesting him. This young seminarian, with whom Fr. Urrutigoity had had a very close particular friendship at Winona, had been under Fr. Urrutigoity's spiritual direction for two years before Fr. Urrutigoity molested him.

Bishop Williamson also told me that he had accompanied this young seminarian when he gave testimony against Fr. Urrutigoity at a Diocese of Scranton inquiry in July 1999. The inquiry was held at the request of Bishop James Timlin of Scranton who sent his auxiliary bishop, John Dougherty, along with another diocesan priest and an attorney, to hear this young seminarian's testimony. Bishop Bernard Fellay of the SSPX had set this whole process in motion when he formally accused Fr. Urrutigoity in a letter to Bishop Timlin dated February 11, 1999. Bishop Fellay had sent this letter to Bishop Timlin because Bishop Timlin had welcomed Fr. Urrutigoity and his followers into the Diocese of Scranton after Fr. Urrutigoity's expulsion from Winona. At the time of Bishop Fellay's formal communication to Bishop Timlin, Fr. Urrutigoity was working as a chaplain at St. Gregory's Academy, an all-boys high school in Elmhurst, Pennsylvania, owned and operated by the Fraternity of St. Peter. Despite Bishop Fellay's letter and the testimony of the molested seminarian, Bishop Timlin allowed Fr. Urrutigoity to continue in his position as chaplain to adolescent boys.

In order to learn more about the charges against seminarian Urrutigoity, I next contacted Fr. Andres Morello, the former rector of the SSPX seminary in La Reja. Fr. Morello is currently the rector of a group called "Campania de Jesus y de Maria" located in the Andes. I wrote to Fr. Morello to ask him about the accusations against Carlos Urrutigoity while he was a seminarian at La Reja. Below is a literal translation of Fr. Morello's response :


I was the rector of the seminary of La Reja from 1981 until 1988, having been previously the vice-rector; therefore I was able to witness the behavior of now Father Urrutigoity all throughout his stay in that seminary

I was transferred to the priory of Santiago in Chile in 1989, and I remained there from February until July of the same year. I was expelled because of a denunciation or better said a confidential request I made for a canonical investigation of some priests members of the Society of St. Pius X, and also because of the support I gave to some seminarians who left the seminary of La Reja.

When I was rector at the seminary of La Reja, I had the intention of expelling the then seminarian Carlos Urrutigoity for a number of reasons, mainly:

- a significant pride

- maintaining particular friendships

- forming a faction of seminarians under his influence

- grave denunciations regarding moral matters (probably the very ones you already know about)

Against my intention of expelling him, as the product of a delicate situation of intrigues which at the time affected the seminary, and undoubtedly with the support of certain priests and the then superior of the district (bishop de Galarreta), instead of being expelled he was sent to the priory of Cordoba (Argentina). The good recommendations obtained there, as well as the support which I just mentioned, motivated his transfer to the seminary of Winona (USA). Meanwhile I had already been posted at Santiago, Chile.

His imminent ordination to the major orders obliged me in conscience to write a confidential report to the rector of Winona's seminary, bishop Williamson, in order to stop the ordination. A canonical report of such characteristics demanded reciprocal confidentiality, and in particular to keep it secret from the person in question. Bishop Williamson made it known to the then seminarian Urrutigoity so that he could defend himself from our accusations.

On July 1989 we traveled to Winona, and bishop Williamson read to us the defense of Father Urrutigoity, defended his "humility" and accused us of lying. A few days later, on July 16, 1989, I was expelled from the Society.

You know better than I the rest of the story.


According to Fr. Morello's account above, he not only sought to expel Urrutigoity from La Reja for the four reasons stated, but he even traveled all the way to Winona from Chile to argue against Urrutigoity's ordination to the priesthood. The "grave denunciations in moral matters," which Fr. Morello mentions as the fourth reason for expelling Urrutigoity, were set down in writing as part of a dossier given to Archbishop Lefebvre when Fr. Morello requested a canonical investigation of certain SSPX priests (as Fr. Morello explains in his letter above). The accusations of homosexual behavior made against seminarian Urrutigoity appear in this dossier as part of a report entitled "Documento No. 2." This report was signed by a group of priests and seminarians from the seminary of La Reja. Below is a literal translation from the three pages of "Documento No. 2" which focus solely on Urrutigoity:


Page 4, three last paragraphs.

The third case is the one of seminarian Carlos Urrutigoity. Here the subject becomes profoundly disagreeable because of the turpitude of the issues involved, and therefore it is for us very difficult to speak about them. This is why we will only present to you the most serious items.

During his stay in the seminary of La Reja, this seminarian was denounced by a young layman who lives in the seminary, for the following reasons which became most serious as the time passed. Frequently the seminarian brought up in conversation the subject of chastity. He asked him if he had temptations and what did he do in such cases. Also he asked him whether he was a virgin, or if he performed dishonest acts alone or with women.

In a particular conversation he asked him if he went to the movies, and if the films excited him provoking temptations. The lad answered yes, and Urrutigoity asked if this prompted him to search for women, to which the young man replied again yes. Then the seminarian asked if he would consider making the dishonest act with a man. The lad said no.

Page 5.

The same witness denounced as well the seminarian for entering his room without knocking previously. One night at about 3:00 AM he woke up and found him inside the room uncovering him. The excuse that Urrutigoity gave next day was that he had entered the room in order to cover him. Before this situation the lad went to Father Canale, a priest whom he trusted. He laughed and said to him: "The only thing I can tell you is to lock the door." Father Canale was therefore fully aware of the situation and he never talked about it with the superior of the house.

The witness says also that on one occasion the seminarian entered into his room and, finding him in bed, told him that he had a fever. The lad replied that he was feeling well, but Urrutigoity insisted that he had a fever and that in order to confirm it he was going to fondle his genitals to see if they were inflamed, and he did it.

One day Carlos Urrutigoity gave him underwear, insisted that he should get naked and try it on before him to see if it fit. He proposed that he take measurements every week of his physical development, naked and with his back towards the wall, which the young man refused to do.

He gave him a shot and insisted on massaging his buttocks, which he did.

We finish here the testimony of the young man, and we wish to make it clear that these are not all the incidents, just those which we consider more relevant.

A seminarian declares that being in the restroom he touched him in his private parts, and that often he told him things about the private parts, among others that "he adored his buttocks" (the seminarian had not yet received the soutane). He said: "I adore your little round butt" (and made a gesture with his hands).

Another seminarian tells us that he asked him about the sexual life of his past and about his present temptations.

Two traditional young laymen declare that during a summer camp organized by Carlos Urrutigoity - with the inexplicable authorization of Bishop de Galarreta, who knew about the situation, and while the seminarian was in the priory of Cordoba under observation because of his disciplinary problems - he went to the river with a group of young men. There he removed his clothes before the others and remained in underwear. One of the youngsters offered immediately a swimming suit which Urrutigoity rejected, and in such attire he bathed in the river.

(Handwritten) De Galarreta did not expel him because of the problems this could cause, especially with the Calderon family.

We ask your forgiveness, Father, for writing about these unpleasant issues but we consider it necessary since nobody has heard our complaints. What worries us right now is that (a) the superiors know about this situation. Not only was the seminarian not expelled, but the solution to his moral and disciplinary problems is simply to send him to another seminary. (b) Carlos Urrutigoity is about to receive major orders in Winona, USA. (c) a serious investigation was never started.

Page 6, first paragraph.

We are worried and scandalized by all this. We have tried by all means to inchoate an investigation to no avail. Bishop de Galarreta made it impossible to take measures against him, and despite the fact that he now acknowledges his mistake, he still does nothing to repair it.


Those who are familiar with Fr. Urrutigoity's more subtle modus operandi will readily recognize in the testimony above the incipient techniques of a sexual predator who was not yet able to manipulate others by means of the full authority of the priesthood. Indeed, the above account confirms reports of Fr. Urrutigoity's frequent initiation of discussions on "chastity" in order to test the willingness of his objects of seduction. And given what is already known about Fr. Urrutigoity's fondness for suppositories, it is not surprising to read about seminarian Urrutigoity's efforts to manipulate "medical problems" for his own perverse purposes. We also see in the account above a slightly more modest version of Fr. Urrutigoity's willingness to parade naked in front of potential victims. Moreover, we see here further testimony of Fr. Urrutigoity's penchant for late night visits to those who are asleep and thereby vulnerable to his advances. Although Document No. 2 does not accuse seminarian Urrutigoity of sleeping in the same bed with other seminarians, there is ample testimony that Fr. Urrutigoity slept one-on-one with seminarians under his authority at Winona, and with boys and young men under his spiritual direction at St. Gregory's Academy and at the Society of St. John's property in Shohola.

Document No. 2 and Fr. Morello's letter also reveal that Fr. Urrutigoity's present suspension is nothing new for him. Carlos Urrutigoity has been formally accused of homosexual molestation in three different places, yet each time he has managed to evade justice by enlisting episcopal support. Urrutigoity was first accused, as we have seen above, when he was a seminarian in La Reja, Argentina. After Urrutigoity was ordained a priest, and soon after he left the seminary in Winona, Minnesota, he was accused again, this time by the young seminarian who left Winona with him. The third accusation was made in a federal lawsuit by a graduate of St. Gregory's Academy when Urrutigoity was the superior general of the Society of St. John. Note that Fr. Urrutigoity's victims came from three completely different backgrounds and that they knew nothing about the prior victims. Hence, there is absolutely no basis for the Society of St. John's claim that the accusations of homosexual molestation reflect a conspiracy against Fr. Urrutigoity.

Note also that even those who initially found themselves on opposite sides, such as Bishop Williamson and Fr. Morello, are now all agreed on at least one thing: Carlos Urrutigoity is a homosexual predator. How then can Bishop Timlin, without whose assistance and support Fr. Urrutigoity would have long ago been stopped, continue to protect this Rasputin in a Roman collar? Although Bishop Timlin has been repeatedly warned that Fr. Urrutigoity continues even to this day to create scenarios that place him in the company of young men, Bishop Timlin still does nothing but claim that all the accusations against Fr. Urrutigoity have been fabricated by his enemies.

All who are disgusted with Bishop Timlin's failure to protect his flock from a clear and present danger should write to him at xxxxxx. I also encourage all concerned parties to contact Mr. Andrew Jarbola, the District Attorney of Lackawanna County: (1) to exhort him to ensure that the ongoing criminal investigation of Fr. Urrutigoity and Fr. Eric Ensey is both rigorous and independent of diocesan influence; and (2) to ask why there is no news of impaneling a grand jury.

Appendix 5

Extracts froms news about Urrutigoity and Williamson

While he was a tiller of souls as the gardener of the harvest, he also found the necessity to weed out those who would weaken the soil. Such was the situation in 1997 when he expelled Father Carlos Urrutigoity and two seminarians from St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary. They subsequently took up refuge in the troubled diocese of Scranton, welcomed by the undiscerning Bishop Timlin who ignored the warnings of Bishops Williamson and Fellay. Now Timlin's successor in Scranton is reaping the bitter fruits of sexual abuse lawsuits by priests of the Society of Saint John which the rebellious Urrutigoity formed when he could not pass muster under Williamson's watchful, careful scrutiny. Thank God the Bishop was a good gardener and one of the signs of the SSPX to guard carefully not only the Sacred Deposit of the Faith, but the virtues of chastity and modesty.

In the fall of 1993, the Seminary received two new professors: Fr. Juan Iscara and Fr. Carlos Urrutigoity. Fr. Iscara assumed duties teaching Moral Theology and Church History. Fr. Urrutigoity became professor of Dogma, Latin and Sacred Music. Through Fr. Urrutigoity’s influence, the Seminary would soon begin to focus heavily on perfecting the Gregorian chant of the seminarians.


The 1996-97 academic year began smoothly, but as the second semester approached, there was a certain restlessness at the Seminary. Cliques had formed, and an ever-widening rift became perceptible, dividing seminarians in everything from the Liturgy to Gregorian Chant to recreational activities. The initial signs of the problem seemed insignificant, but underlying the minor differences in taste was an unhealthy “Medievalism” – the desire to “restore” the tried and true curriculum according to a romanticized “medieval model,” leaving behind what were termed the excesses and deviations brought about by the Counter-Reformation. Five months later, it was discovered that a break-away society was secretly being planned. The Society of St. John was to establish a religious life without the despised “deviations” (which were in fact the glories of the Church).

This return to an imagined Golden Age was, in fact, the construction of something completely new; the Middle Ages are past and its return is impossible. In trying to execute such a project in today’s world, it would be necessary to introduce novelties that never existed in the history of the Church, much less in the Middle Ages. This is precisely what the Modernists did at Vatican II. Every innovation was justified by the call of a return to the pristine purity of the ancient Church, while alongside there was the never avowed intention of avoiding the burdens that life according to the Church’s doctrine and laws, and our own statutes, impose upon us.

After a long build-up, Bishop Williamson dismissed from the Seminary the “talented but proud young Argentinian priest” (to quote the Bishop) who had spearheaded the plans for the new society. He had seen this happen before: a recently-ordained, intellectually brilliant priest using his skills in an effort to reshape the SSPX in his own image and finally, when frustrated in his plans, resorting to subversion and disobedience – taking others with him in his fall. Such as these would have to go their own ways, while the Seminary continued to hand on what it received from Archbishop Lefebvre.

As a consequence of this affair, the Seminary lost two priests and over 12 seminarians. Following these painful events, the Seminary was solemnly consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 6th, to give glory to His name and reaffirm that the Seminary is His domain.

Nevertheless, however, there are more than a handful of priests in the Society of Saint Pius X and in the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter who look fondly upon the Ordo Missae of 1965, which was in place for just five years before being replaced by the Novus Ordo Missae itself (which was a period precisely three years longer than the modernized 1961 Missal of John XXIII had been in place). There are still some priests in the Society of Saint Pius X, for example, who remain supportive, albeit privately, of the liturgical views of Father Carlos Urrutigoity, the founder of the corrupt Society of Saint John, which has now taken refuge under the protection, believe it or not, of the conciliar bishop of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay, Rogelio Livieres Plano (who issued a letter in support of the Society of Saint John on September 8, 2006), a little fact that should prove that perversion is no impediment to being welcomed in the official quarters of the conciliar church.

Urrutigoity's belief, expressed to me personally in an interview I conducted with him in Shohola, Pennsylvania, in November of 1999, is that "we should see where the liturgy would have gone" had there not been the "polemics" of the 1960s. In other words, "we" should be open to liturgical change so as not to "cement" the Mass according to any one Missal, which is why Urrutigoity, who had the full support of Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, said that he would sometimes use the Missal of 1910 or the Missal of 1955 or the Missal of 1962 or the Missal of 1965, but never the Missal of 1969, he emphasized. Urrutigoity thus was in favor of  some degree of  "approved" liturgical experimentation, a view that he professed during his days as a teacher at Saint Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minnesota, before his expulsion from the Society of Saint Pius X circa 1998.

There were some seminarians in Winona who supported Urrutigoity's liturgical approach but who did not want to denounce the late Archbishop Lefebvre by following him, Urrutigoity, out of the Society of Saint Pius X. There is at least some sympathy for Urrutigoity's view of the liturgy in some circles with the Society of Saint Pius X. Thus the very thing that has so devastated souls in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, liturgical experimentation, has varying degrees of support among some priests in the Society of Saint Pius X and among a few "priests" in the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, which has the additional "baggage" of "priests" within its ranks in France who will celebrate the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic service that is the Novus Ordo Missae at the behest of the local conciliar bishop (see Griff Ruby's THE RESURRECTION OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, an excellent review of the entire history of the Traditional movement, "fair and balanced" as a certain Masonically-owned cable propaganda network advertises itself).
