A pedophile Catholic priest made young boys dress up as the Baby Jesus in swaddling clothes then sexually abused them.
Frederick Lenczycki, 74, admitted two counts of sodomy Thursday, after a court in St Louis, Missouri, was told how he molested two boys between 1991 and 1994.
One of the victims had his genitals repeatedly grabbed by Lenczycki, while the pervert clergyman kept trying to rip the second ones clothes off.
They were attacked while he was chaplain of St Louiss DePaul Health Center.
Lenczyski, who will be sentenced on August 15, had previously been charged with sexually abusing three other boys in Chicago during the 1980s.
Those youngsters told how the priest, who they knew as Father Fred, would swaddle them in cloths like the Baby Jesus was after being born.
He did so under the guise of organizing religious pageants, which never took place, and which were used as a front for the abuse.
Lenczyski admitted that sex abuse in 2004 and was jailed for five years.
Randy Kanaday, who is one of the two victims Lenczyski admitted attacking at Thursdays court hearing, said the perverts guilty plea would help put his ordeal behind him.
