Latest highly placed, high-profile Jesuit to resign under fire. Past misdeeds keep popping up.
When reports of Donald McGuire’s sexual abuse of minors came to Fr. Bradley Schaeffer’s attention in 1993, no significant action was taken to remove McGuire, a renowned retreat leader and close friend of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, from his ministry. Fr. Schaeffer, who was the Jesuit Provincial in Chicago at the time, never contacted the police regarding the allegations; instead, he sent McGuire for rehabilitative treatment which reportedly ended early and in failure due to McGuire’s lack of cooperation with therapists.
