With the Vatican offering time off in purgatory for followers of Pope Francis ‘tweets’ during ‘World Youth Day’ (who’d have believed…) the same Vatican with multiple financial scandals featuring mafia, money laundering and murder, it seems almost as though the rampant crime sprees were intended to push the worldwide church pedophilia epidemic into the shadow… and so lest we all forget the plight of ‘church loved children’ during ‘World Youth Day’, I decided to post the history of Saint Chester, patron of lost Catholic boys (or sheep, this is unclear)
ABOUT SAINTS A patron is a no-longer-alive person who has been assigned to higher plane by our venerable tradition, or chosen by election, as a special intermediate intercessory between God and man. He is honored by clergy and persons of faith in a special, intimate form of religious observance. The term “patron”, being wider in its meaning than that of “titular” (or just in title), may be applied to a church, a district, a or a country. According to the legislation in force from The Church, this person who committed miracles in life, and was appointed posthumously, does hold the rank of a canonized saint.
ABOUT US As persons of faith, our goal is to honor, preserve and pray unto the saints that bear on our lives. Some pray to Saint Christopher for safe travel, other to Saint Aedesius to stop the drowning of virgins made to work as prostitutes. For our own personal reasons, we pray to St. Chester for guidance, wisdom and the ability to clearly communicate so we may commune with our young, lost sheep, in accordance with God’s will.
ABOUT SAINT CHESTER He was a man who was taken in as a boy, and loved. He grew to be a man, and as a man, he took in as many boys as he could reasonably store and feed, and he was the shepherd to them until his late years when blindness afflicted him, and he succumbed to an unknown disease. He was a cobbler, but he is not the patron saint of shoe makers. He was a man, but he’s never the patron saint of any adult.
FULL HISTORY Saint Chester was born of William and Margaret in a small village in Germany, near what’s now known as Rosrath, sometime between 1620 and 1638, when the city was part of the French empire. He worked as an apprentice boysmith while himself still a boy, until his parents sold him into servitude in the then-obscene trade of cobblery. It was there he learned the love of an older, wiser, married man, a quality he carried with him when he returned to boysmithery in his thirties. Saint Chester never married and had no natural children of his own, and honored his vow to never lie with a woman through all his days, a miracle by itself. He served the soft, wooly sheep of the lords flock by taking in the youngest ewes of the flock. He took in many orphaned and runaway boys, and let them suckle from the milk of his generosity as if he was their own mother, perhaps metaphorically, though this is unclear. As he advanced into his late thirties, he suffered blindness, as did many of his boys, but he never lost faith in God, and he never stopped loving the boys he had taken in as his own. He died of an unknown infection. The location of his grave is unknown to this day. In this modern world we pray to St. Chester for help, hope, guidance, freedom to express our faith in peace, and the capacity to give more and more of ourselves to the forever growing number of children lost and forgotten in our world.

Update 12 April 2015: Pope Frances (to date) is standing behind the promotion of the criminal dictator Augusto Pinochet’s military priest, Juan Barros (presided at Pinochet’s funeral), despite the fact Barros shielded one of the church’s most notorious pedophiles. 18 February 2016 post script: Having done this immediate preceding, it is hard to believe his recent statement …“A bishop who changes parish (for a priest) when he detects pederasty is reckless and the best thing he can do is present his resignation,” Francis said. “Clear?”… when he clearly does not practice what he preaches
Update 17 September 2015: USA priests/molesters relocated to parishes in South America where they go on molesting:

6 February 2016 update: “He said the Vatican’s inaction in the face of continuing cases of children being raped and molested “made me lose faith in the process and lose faith in Pope Francis”
1 March 2016 update:
“These predators desecrated a sacred trust and preyed upon their victims in the very places where they should have felt most safe,” [Pennsylvania Attorney General] Kane said in a statement. “Just as troubling is the cover-up perpetrated by clergy leaders that allowed this abuse to continue for decades.”

“Mauro Inzoli, 66, was defrocked in 2012 after he was first accused of paedophilia but that decision was reversed in 2014, when Pope Francis ordered him to stay away from minors and retire to “a life of prayer and humble discretion.”

6 August 2016 update:
“He said he confessed his sins to other priests on the island at the time but none told him to specifically stop.

26 February 2017 update:
“In a statement announcing Francis’ decision to reduce the sentence, Crema Bishop Oscar Cantoni said “no misery is so profound, no sin so terrible that mercy cannot be applied””
