A man of 63 lies on my couch and tells me with huge emotion of how he was sent to a school run by Jesuit brothers in the 1950s. He was 13 years of age. He was horrified on his first night when, after some talking took place after lights out, a monk came in the room and beat every one of the boys in the dormitory. This was a terrifying shock. However, it became a regular occurrence to which he soon became accustomed. Very little provocation was needed to merit a beating.
