As I read more and more about the abuse over years, recently Ireland and other European communities I wonder that parents were not alerted by the boys or that some priests weren't found out and hanged.
Boys castrated by Roman Catholic Church as homosexuality cure

At least 10 teenage boys or men under the age of 21 were surgically castrated "to get rid of homosexuality" while in the care of the Dutch Roman Catholic Church in the 1950s. Evidence of the castrations has emerged amid controversy that it was not included last year in the findings of an official investigation into sexual abuse within the church.
NRC Handelsblad newspaper identified Henk Heithuis, who was castrated in 1956 while a minor, after reporting priests to the police for abusing him in a Catholic boarding home. Joep Dohmen, a journalist, found evidence of at least nine other castrations. Sources told Mr. Dohmen that the surgical removal of testicles was regarded as a treatment for homosexuality and as a punishment for those who accused clergy of abuse.
