    Alberto Cutie has been carrying on with his affair for years now. When he is exposed he cries like a baby and runs away. He knew what his vows were when he took them. He chose to break them. This hypocracy is tiresome. No wonder the Catholic Church has such a negative public image. Will this ever stop?

    My problem with Alberto Cutie is that the catholic church is the only church that believes that Jesus is truely present in the bread and wine. How can he switch? All these years of him being a catolic roman priest did he not believe in the Holy Eucharist. "THE CONSECRATION" The doctrine of the Real Presence asserts that in the Holy Eucharist, Jesus is literally and wholly present—body and blood, soul and divinity—under the appearances of bread and wine.How sad for years I pray to GOD to help me believe that the Eucharist is truly Jesus present! I bet he could have left the priesthood and become a deacon.

    I know we are all sinners but Fr. Cutie misled so many people. Even this act of leaving the Catholic Church was a final defiance against the Church whom he should have been faithful to from the start. Not only did he break his vow of celibacy but he fornicated with a divorced woman on top of that and then had the nerves to leave the Church without respecting his bishop in discussing it properly with him. What happened to the vow of obedience to your bishop? What Fr. Cutie said in his actions is that the Catholic Church and not him is at fault. In his actions, he is saying that the Catholic Church wronged him and not the other way around. Abandoning the faith was the ultimate scandal. It was a cowardly act to leave the Church without staying and trying to find ways to make amends. He left his bride (the Catholic Church) for another woman (the Episcopal Church) and his mistress (Canalis).

    As I understand it this is apostasy. He could have left the priesthood, married his girlfriend and continued service as a layman but instead chose the path of renunciation. There is only one,true,holy and apostolic church and this man has left it.

    I think Alberto Cutie should come back and sign off properly with the Catholic Church and we should all wish him well.
    God Bless.

    Thank you jakcy ...well said. We are Catholics and incapable of sweeping everything under the rug and sugar coating it to ease our conscience. We recognize the wrong that has been committed and we are not "judging" as other would put it. We are Catholics and we are not so weak to know that it is wrong and to recognize it as such without being afraid. We have the sacrament of confession and communion to show us.

    In today's reading there was a hidden message, like most readings for you to put yourself in the word and live it on your own. God has a mission for all of us, and I'm not saying Fr Cutie was right in what he did, but man is sinner from long ago and is susceptible to falter just as any other man. He has come out into the light now and like all of us who sin and repent come out into the light and are forgiven by the grace of God. A new beginning for Fr Cutie and so should it be to all who falter and repent. Do not look into your own understanding, and do not judge, but in all things trust in the Lord your God that you may fortunate to join him in his kingdom. God Bless you all

    We have a right and obligation to defend our catholioc church and beliefs. We cant praise father albert for his actions or justify them making it seem like it is ok, for others to imitate his actions. We can give our opinion. Yes we have all sinned but we arent priests whom we should expect more from. Also he is a popular priest, he has made hisa way up there, so of course we are going to comment. Clearly he has made one poor decision after another. He should have withdrew from being a priest before starting this relationship, but remain within the catholic church serving in other ways just not as a priest. He could have gotten married but stayed faithful to his beliefs of a lifetime. Didnt Jesus say "What is it worth for man to win the world when he loses his soul in the process?" He is putting his salvation at risk by abandoning the one true church of jesus, where peter raised a church on this rock. There are some real diferences between the episcopal church and roman-catholic. They believe in abortion , gay marriage,dont believe in the pope, dont believe the bread and wine turn into the body and blood of christ. He will have to brainwash himself erasing all that he knew before. Well he is a lost sheep gone astray, hopefully one day he will realize his mistakes and get on the right path back.

    I agree this was a scandal made worse. One poor decision after another from ALberto Cutie. Couldnt he have remained catholic, but step down from priesthood. He could have gotten married and perhaps become a deacon in the catholic-roman church. He could serve God other ways but not by leaving everything he believed in all his life.Like Jesus said, "what worthwile is it for man to win the world when he loses his soul in the process? He is giving up our beliefs to now think and believe in a diferent way? He is a lost sheep who has lost his way, hopefully one day he will realize it and find the right path back.
