    This is pathetic. The man broke a vow and is unwilling to admit his failing. I see no difference between him and a cheating husband who runs to a protestant church because they will ignore his vow and let him "marry" his new girlfriend. How fitting that he should resort to the Episcopal church. It was founded by a man who didn't feel like keeping his vow either.

    I agree with Joseph. We cannot judge Fr Cutie. All of us are sinners. Hopefully Fr Cutie will straighten his ways befor Judgement day as so does everyone of us. Keep praying..

    The word catholic should not associated with the Episcopal church. I believe they broke off for similar reasons. I may be wrong, but we are the Roman Catholic Church (all words put together)

    Indeed he is very confused!What are you going to teach in your new ministry? How to betray your Catholic Faith and Church? Or how to break your vows? I think that right now you are infactuated by what you call love! Marriage is like a Hot Bath, after a while you get used to it. And then what? Return to the Lord your God, you Cannot abondon your tradition and the Church that raised you and made you Famous. The grass is Not greener on the other side. And you know that!

    This person not only broke his vows to God and the church, but allowed the evil media to exploit his sinful behavior to tarnish the Catholic church's reputation...all for his personal enjoyment.

    As the Bible says, we can't judge him, but Jesus will.

    Now is the time to pray for Fr. Cutie. Let us call to mind the words from scripture, "You are a priest forever." May he soon return to full communion with the Church he serves as "another Christ."

    As always, we must not condemn or judge God's priests. Instead, Jesus and Mother Mary ask that we pray for their priests. I pray that Fr. Cutie will realize the error of his way and also will pray for the young lady involved in her lack of judgement. I disagree with the comment by the Episcopal Archbishop; the Episcopal Church is NOT the Catholic Church. The Roman Cathlic Church is the true Church.

    As a Hispanic Catholic I am profoundly disappointed and angry. I find it insulting that Fr. Alberto would join the Episcopal Church simply out of convenience, because he can't keep the promise he made to God to remain celibate.

    He says "Those who know me know that I would be unable to hurt anyone especially my family and the faithful community." What he doesn't see is that he has gravely hurt the faithful. He has opened up the floodgates for the argument against celibacy for priests and many Hispanics will unfortunately be following him into his "new spiritual family" not knowing that they are disowning the Catholic Church.

    This is a very confused man. Where is the discernment period for such a rash decision? Why would anyone think he is in a position to offer people moral and spiritual guidance? Become an Episcopalian if you like, Albert, but please spare us from your "call to ministry." It would seem that what is really going on here is that this man needs a job!

    A private affair?

    Fr. Alberto wants us to believe that this is a private affair between him and God, yet he has been and continues to attempt to be a spiritual pastor. As such, he is set up as an example for the faithful and his actions will naturally be emulated by many. His teaching (by example) that divorce and remarriage is permissible should have no place in a Christian community. It is also sad that he has been so unforthcoming about his actions. A pastor must be an example for others, not a scandal to moral life.
