A seminary in Carthage, Missouri has been connected to Bishop Schuckardt, Bishop (later Cardinal) Bernard Law, and Archbishop Thuc. I thought it was extremely bizarre that three high profile figures passed through such a seemingly insignificant town. I suspect that this town was part of a plot involving sexual abuse & CIA covert operations, because the connection otherwise seems too strange and isn’t just a simple coincidence to dismiss. Schuckardt was there in 1960, Bishop Law and the US military relocated Vietnamese refugees to Carthage in 1975, and Archbishop Thuc moved to Carthage in 1984, where he died and is buried. Today the site is home to Marian Days, the largest gathering of Vietnamese Catholics in America.
Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI)
It’s mentioned in brief biographies of Schuckardt that he went to seminary in Carthage, Missouri. Why he decided to go across the country for seminary is a mystery. Why did he get a degree in linguistics if his plan was to join the seminary the following year? There is no need for a linguistics degree even as a missionary priest. I’ve read Schuckardt was fluent in multiple languages in addition to his linguistics degree, which is the perfect background for a CIA agent. The seminary he attended was Our Lady of the Ozarks College in Carthage, operated by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The college operated from 1944 until it closed in 1971. In 1975, Bishop (later Cardinal) Bernard Law gave the building to Vietnamese refugees as part of a refugee resettlement agreement with the US military.
In recent years, the Oblates have been at the center of international attention regarding their abuse of children in Canadian boarding schools. In addition, widespread sexual abuse was reported at the seminary Schuckardt was attending.
My guess is that Schuckardt was involved in homosexual abuse around 1960 in the seminary. I suspect he may have been molested and possibly willingly participated in it. This would explain why he left the seminary on sick leave. Often “sick leave” is a way that abusers and homosexuals were dismissed. Schuckardt’s time here may have led to internal psychological distress, leading to physical illness and drug abuse.
Congregation of the Mother Coredemptrix (CMC)
In 1975, Bishop Law became aware of a large Vietnamese refugee camp in Fort Chaffee, Arkansas and 150 members of the Vietnamese religious congregation of men, the Congregation of Mary Co-Redemptrix. In order to resettle them as a group, the U.S. government required that they have a single sponsor for all of them. Bishop Law was able to obtain a former seminary in Carthage, Missouri and invited the members of the congregation to move there.
Abuse & Residential School System
At least 3 sexual abusers were operating out of the Carthage seminary in 1960, right when Schuckardt was there.(link to page)
The seminary was operated by "Oblates of Mary Immaculate" which is one of the names later used by Schuckardt for the group here. I don't think this is a coincidence.(link to page)
The OMI has also been at the center of the news stories around the abuse at the Canadian Residential School System (continue reading)
I suspect Schuckardt was part of a homosexual group in 1960 in Carthage when he was around 22, and it scrambled his brain. This explains his "sickness" which was probably when he started to become a conflicted homosexual and drug addict. I doubt he was ever sick, this was just repeated by people, but I've never seen a doctor's report. I think he never recovered from this homosexual abuse in 1960, and he started abusing boys after his own experience in the seminary.
