When I was five years old, the bishop stood over me and said, "Stop babbling about what Father Horne did to you." I kept the secret for 40 years. Today, I babble. - ke

Raped in an orphanage himself, priest now imprisoned for pedophilia

A lot of priest pedophilia was passed down through generations.

"Prosecutors said Flores' ordination was twice delayed, beginning in 2008 when he alleged he was abused years earlier in the Bolivian orphanage."

Read Questions surface in Joliet Diocese handling of priest now imprisoned for child abuse in Chicago Tribune today

Regarding: Rev. Alejandro Flores of Bolivia and Joliet, age 38, serving a four-year prison term in Illinois for criminal sexual assault.

"Flores was sent for treatment at least twice, including three months before his ordination for viewing pornography on a parish computer... images of young males engaged in sex acts... the computer's hard drive had disappeared when [police} sought it months later."

The priest said in 2008 that he was abused years earlier in the Bolivian orphanage...

"At his Sept. 8, 2010, guilty plea, Flores admitted abusing the youngest boy from 2005 to 2010, beginning when the child was 8, usually in his car or the family's St. Charles apartment. He faces deportation to Bolivia upon his release."
