I was a catholic priest for 20 years when I met a former priest who was a victim of sexual crimes by Fr. Marcial Maciel. Trying to help him and other exlegionaries to seek justice within the institution made me realize it was impossible. I left Mexico and came to Chicago in 2001 where I learned that clergy sex crimes were the result of an institutional mechanism from the Holy See at the international level. I left the priesthood and have dedicated myself to exposing the crimes and the cover-up by church officials in Mexico and the world.
