Here is another account of a survivor of Neary coming out because of Charles Bailey’s book In the Shadow of the Cross at:
by Ellen Leahy, Editor/City Eagle 08/30/07
“Alfie and my friend started again to discuss the book, as Alfie had had a run-in with Rev. Neary. He said that as a young boy he had worshipped with his family at St. Mary’s and had really looked up to Neary. You have to put yourself into a young boy’s mind, and the reverence one has for their priest, especially 40 years ago.
(emphasis mine, Neary picture below left)
“Alfie said Neary started out with some inappropriate touching that was very confusing and then he made a move on him, which included shoving his tongue down the young Rossi’s throat. Alfie went home and told his father he didn’t want to go to church anymore and his father without question said, okay. They never discussed why at the time.”
BAILEY: “My Wife Susan is the angel God sent me, at least half the reason why I'm here at all."
They have been married 35 years
BAILEY: She is my personal pit bull.
