Cartholic priests & domestic abuse conceling

So... I have a priest in my story, which is set in modern day, and I want him to have spent the last 30 years or so in the smae parish. I know that nowadays that is extremely unlikely since they rotate priests, but I figured that if he knows and can influence the person in charge of the rotation in the area (in this case, Los Angeles) he could manage to slip under the radar. Who would the person he needs to influence be?

Now, the priest will end up giving advice to someone about domestic abuse. Namely, my MC, Rafe, cofesses that he hit his pregnant wife-to-be and is pretty much begging for divine guidance because he loves her more than life and wants to never do it again - actually hitting her made him realize that he was being an abusive jerk and shook him out of the "I am not abusing her since I am not hitting her" denial. Now, what I need to find out, is that what sort of advice would the priest give him? What Bible passages would he recommend? What, in general, sort of advice a Catholic priest would give that differs from "norrmal" advice/therapy to abusive idiots who wnat to change?
