    Father Alberto has shown that he has been dishonest to himself and the community for several years and at this moment that he renounces his religion and joined the Episcopalian Church. He has shown that he has neither principles nor morals. His convenience has been his moral. If a priest can not keep his celibacy and kees a love relationship, he should resign and request a laicization. Father Alberto is showing resentment.

    Episcopalian church allows abortion and gay marriage. How can it be Christ's Church?

    Vicky - whether the apostles were married or not is not the issue - the issue is that this man VOLUNTARILY accepted celibacy - and broke his vow. And as for becoming an Episcopalian - why did you do it? That particular sect is full of heresy - you had the Truth and you, like Cutie, picked what is convenient. How sad for all of you. You and Cutie et al. will be in my prayers.

    When there is separation or a divorce there is always sadness. Father Cutie couldn't control his feeling for his girlfriend, therefore he separated himself from his Roman Catholic family, he made a choice, that is fine.There is nothing to applaud nor to criticize. He could have consulted with his archbishop before turning his back on the church. He could have at least said good bye or he could have remained as a deacon. (?) But as a Catholic, I have no negative comment except to say Good Luck and as Father Cutie knows the Catholic church's door is always open for anyone who wants to make the journey back home.

    Pray for everyone here who doesn't understand the Catholic Church.

    Read your Catechism and also not everyone was married.
    Read your Bible on what it says about the priesthood.
    I suggest you read the history of the priesthood.
    I also suggest one read about the saints of the Church as well and the temptations they went through.
    The priesthood isnt easy but that why the Lord said I will not leave you orphans.
    He was saying I will help you in your time of need.
    At a guess the evil one was involved here.
    Alberto will have to think about his road from here on out.
    He should have talked to our people before he left.
    If people think this will change the teaching of the Church no it wont.
    IN SEASON AND OUT OF SEASON NEVER CHANGES.
    WERE LIVING IN VERY HARD TIMES.
    WHY DO YOU THINK FATHER GROESCHELS PEOPLE DONT WATCH TV.
    WE KNOW WHO OWNS THAT REALM.
    ITS A TYPE OF "PRINCIPALITY" IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT.
    ALSO LOOK HOW WE ARE AROUND US AND IN OUR OWN LIVES.
    WE ALL SIN.
    I DONT KNOW WHAT ALBERTO WAS THINKING BUT HE GAVE UP THE PRIESTHOOD WHICH I STILL THINK IN THESE TRYING TIMES IS A GIFT FROM GOD.
    LOVE IN CHRIST BROTHERS AND SISTERS PRAY FOR ALL OUR BROTHERS AND SISTER RELIGIOUS HOLDING TO THEIR VOWS.

    The real representatives of Christ on earth are the Holy Spirit, Real Presence in the Host and we as the Body of Christ. Not institionalized homosexual sympathizers.

    As a recent convert to the Episcopal church after growing up Catholic, I applaud Father Cutie. Weren't the apostles married?

    How sad to see the picture of the couple renouncing The Roman Catholic Faith.
    In the end we all turn into dust--but the Truth and Beauty of Holy Mother Church is eternal.
    The picture reminds me of teens who get pregnant out of wedlock- yes, you're happy eventually for the blessed event -- but the parents and families connected to the situation are saddened and dissappointed at how it all came about.

    Wow, I can not believe some of these remarks. I am in total agreement that we should not criticize this priest. However, I think most people here do this out of true dismay not only for this priest but for this woman. A priest who finds that he is not able to keep his vows, could of contacted his bishop or hierchy. This is not the first time this has happened. The church would have found alternative work in the church for this priest. For those that think the Catholic Church should change for this priest or any other for that matter. Sorry. It is not going to happen. Humility is something all of us seem to need. It is not all about us and what we want. To love and serve God in this beautiful church is such an honor. Why does it have to change for us? Why are we so much more important than the centuries of Catholics before us?
    I pray for this priest as well as all priests and clergy that they will submit to God and not this world.
