Dear Reverend Fathers, Bishops and Cardinals of the Indian Church
It is most unpleasant duty to inform you that, after almost four months of fruitless telephoning and writing to all of you esteemed persons (some of who actually corresponded with me) on the matter of the sexual molestation and rape of young women by Fr. Joby Kachappilly VC at Faridabad, Toronto, Bangalore, and possibly elsewhere, and after sending letters to over 500 priests of the Vincentian Congregation and other Church executive bodies and senior clerics in the futile hope that at least one righteous bishop or priest would speak up, our team has concluded that the Vincentian Generalate and priests, and the Episcopate of the Church are not going to ensure that justice is done to the abused girls and that the priest is disciplined as per Church law.
Not a single cleric, as someone pointed out to me, out of the few who did evasively respond (report 04), expressed even the slightest pity, empathy or sympathy for the young victims of the predator Fr. Joby Kachappilly who is in hiding in Rome with the connivance of the Church. A copy of this letter is marked to Fr. Kachappilly.
Our intention is that you will not receive any more letters from us before we take up the issue at other secular forums. Please then do not accuse us of “washing the Church’s dirty linen in public”. You have left us with no alternative to take (or at least to attempt to take) Fr. Kachappilly out of circulation so that he cannot destroy the lives of more innocent young girls. If the law of the land requests evidence, our team will provide the same to them, but not before that to anyone else.
A couple of you have already received from me the first of the two files listed below. I have herewith added a second file of the six or seven in the series, and a third one pertaining to the crisis of homosexuality in Indian seminaries and the denial and cover-up of the issue by the Church. We have firsthand evidence which we hope will not have to be used unless called for by the law of the land. Meanwhile we have released other reports (apart from those given below) and will continue to release a few more if deemed necessary.

RAPE AND SEXUAL ABUSE BY INDIAN PRIESTS-CHURCH FAILS TO PUNISH GUILTY 05 (PROFILE OF FR. JOBY KACHAPPILLY, THE ABSCONDING RAPIST PRIEST HIDING IN ROME)
Below is an excerpt (slightly modified and expanded) from the introduction to the above-referred file 04:
In our internet ministry commencing 2003, we have remained dedicated to exposing
-Liberals and dissenters in the Indian Church
-Hinduisation of the Indian Church in the guise of inculturation; false ecumenism and interreligious dialogue
-Liturgical abuses and aberrations in the Indian Church
-Errors and abuses in the mainstream Catholic Charismatic Renewal and in major retreat centres in India
-Indian evangelical- (and New Age-) influenced retreat preachers masquerading as Catholics
-Threats to the Catholic faithful from private/unapproved mystics, false revelations, etc.
-New Age (alternative therapies, eastern meditations, psycho-spiritual counseling techniques and devices, etc.) promoted by parishes, Catholic laity and religious institutions and individuals in ministry in India, but we have never concerned ourselves with moral issues for fear of sitting in judgement over people.
We have always been receiving information from individuals about predator priests who seduce or sexually exploit women, more so in the recent past. But we have never till now put such information on our web site.
We now feel constrained to publish on our site certain information in the hope that the Church hierarchy concerned will see that justice is done wherever it still remains to be done, and for three reasons:
1. The issue is downplayed and the predator is protected by the very ecclesiastical authorities who should be disciplining him and comforting the survivor/s;
2. The matter has already been reported or is known to the perpetrators’ authorities but with no effect;
3. The news is no secret and is already in the public domain.
02 continues to reproduce more news stories, spread over a period of several years, taking up from where we left off in report 01, in order to provide further evidence that there are many more sexual predators in the Church than we could have imagined, and that the Church authorities have been engaged in the cover-up and protection of priests charged with sex crimes until they can do so no longer.
02 includes news reports not only of sexual predation by clerical wolves in sheep’s clothing (rape, sodomy), but also of Catholic priests who were arrested for the crimes of kidnapping a bishop, and of murder, and there are even priests who murdered another priest, a seminary rector.
The reports are so very numerous that it would be impossible to chronicle them all or even a substantial percentage of what is available on the Internet.
03 details the rape and impregnation of a minor by Fr. Robin (Mathew) Vadakkancherry, the pastor of St. Sebastian’s Church, Kottiyoor, Kerala, and the scandalous bribery and intimidation of the victim’s parents by the priest in paying a huge sum of money — allegedly out of what he received through dubious business deals — to ensure to the victim’s father so that he confessed to the rape, the attempt by the priest to flee India when the story broke, the collusion of local Church authorities to hush and cover up the rape and the pregnancy, the rapist’s “clout” with Church authorities despite earlier complaints of sexual assault and the priest’s being active in a campaign against the sexual abuse of minors. The Kerala Catholic Bishops’ Council (KCBC) called the case a “generalization” and an “exception”, resorted to blaming the victim and not the perpetrator, and finally blamed the priest’s rape of the child on the effects of “consumerism”.
From reports numbered 01 through 03, one will see that the sexual abuse of nuns, women in general, minor girls and boys by Indian priests is much more common and frequent than one would have imagined, and that the reaction (or lack of any) of the authorities almost always follows the same pattern. In our compilation of these crimes as reported in the public media, history records that the Indian Church only acts against its criminal priests when their crimes become publicly known and cannot be hidden from scrutiny any longer.
In the case of Fr. Joby Kachappilly VC (04 and the present file), a retreat centre Director who sexually molested two young girls (among others) over a period of 3 to 4 years, hoping to keep it within the Church and not “wash the church’s dirty linen in public”, and following protocol, we respectfully contacted (over the ‘phone commencing March 18) the rapist’s confreres and his Provincial Superior and again the Superior and his Archbishop (of the Syro-Malabar rite, both by email on April 6), the senior executives and heads of Church bodies and Commissions (including the Presidents of the CBCI and the CBCI) as well as the Apostolic Nuncio to India, going up to April 22, 2017. Finally, after six weeks we received a response on June 7 from the President of the CCBI (Latin rite) asking us which rite the rapist priest belonged to, evidently already knowing fully well the answer and attempting to evade responsibility for the Syro-Malabar rite priest’s crimes! Today, almost a month later, the Cardinal, Oswald Gracias, has not replied to my email response of June 7 to him; and June 18, 2017 marked three months of our futile attempts to bring the Vincentian priest to justice (one of the victims is ready to testify face-to-face against the serial molester-rapist).
Barring one*, all other letters of ours were not answered by the hierarchy and are reproduced in report 04.
The predator’s brother priests and Provincial went from tolerant dialogue to hostility to silence. They sort of followed the Fr. Robin Vadakkancherry (03) pattern that we summarised above: intimidation and harassment of the victims on the ‘phone and packing off the priest to Rome (being sent for “studies” to Rome and overseas transfers seems to occur immediately when priests are exposed in India for sex crimes).
We had set some demands that included a council at which the Vincentians, the victim and our team would confront the priest and seek that he be defrocked and laicized. The proposed date was in mid-May. The alternative to that, they were informed, was our approaching the police and the media. That did not deter them from maintaining a deafening silence. We have now issued a final email notice to all concerned, including every single Vincentian priest, the date for a meeting being reset for mid-August, the ignoring of which will constrain us to approach the law, the National Commission for Women (NCW), and the secular media.
CBCI President Cardinal Baselios Cleemis responded finally but only after a second reminder
While updating and just before releasing the 05 file, I received a couple of emails (July 7) from Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Bombay and President, CCBI.
The deafening silence of over 500 Vincentian priests, their Provincial Superior and their Superior General, and their retreat centres in response to our emails and several follow-up letters makes them complicit (legally speaking, they are now accessories to the fact) in the serial sexual molestations of Fr. Joby Kachappilly, before God and before man. Some of them were already aware of his crimes.
We have evidence of that as well as of their harassment of the survivors and their families till the time of publishing. They are anxiously attempting to find out what evidence we have, but that will be handed over to the National Commission for Women and the investigating agencies eventually.
Recently, presenting him with the evidence that we have, we wrote a very strong letter to a senior Vincentian priest who had been intimidating one of the survivors and had finally sent her a blackmail threat on WhatsApp. After hearing from us, he has gone silent realising his predicament. He is one of the very same priests whom we had spoken to in the month of March but chooses not to dialogue with us.
His criminal behaviour will eventually be exposed in a separate report from this ministry.
Meanwhile, what absolutely shocks us is that the priests of this religious order that is dedicated to the renewal of the Church through exercise of the charisms of the Holy Spirit in their many retreats centres continue to sacrilegiously offer Holy Mass and administer the Sacraments despite their brazen cover-up and protection of the criminal, their lies and denial of the truth, their intimidation of the victim-survivors, and the devious strategies that they are employing to silence us. Their individual and collective sin is great.
05 provides the profile of the accused priest Fr. Joby Kachappilly VC, the recent explosion of the scandal of the charges of sexual abuse against George Cardinal Pell, Rome’s reaction to that, the complaint against the Vincentian Congregation in the matter of sexual and other abuse by their priests by Shibu Kalamparambil who has left the Congregation and the priesthood, and the accounts of other nuns who suffered sexual molestation at the hands of priests (a sort of continuation of 01 and 02) whilst being ostracised by their congregations and the hierarchial Church.
I had concluded 05 with these words:
We can see from all of the above that the Church is scandal-hardened, materially rich and wields tremendous political clout, and our priests and bishops are confident of getting away with anything – the cold-blooded financial looting of the laity, misuse of parish funds and building trusts, abetment to suicide, homosexuality, seduction, rape, and murder. And they are more the rule, as we have uncovered, than the exception.
Catholics remain faithful to Christ and His Church NOT BECAUSE of the priests and bishops, BUT DESPITE THEM.
