    I never could understand from a realistic point of view how a priest could give relationship advice. They arent married, they never dated and they couldnt understand the dynamics of a relationship and the issues. Rabbis at least are can marry so they can relate to you. In this case, it seems the secret to the priests success, is a women. I understand the rules and I understand the Catholic church, but it seems to me that his breaking the rules works. He was really successful. Yeah he lied and Im sure he didnt go to confession. Confession sorta came to him via a photographer and a zoom lense. Yeah he lied about it, but at least it wasnt a child. Hes been in a relationship with a grown women. I figure the Catholic church most likely wont change the rules anytime soon, may this was a blessing . He may not be priest, but he can always have a radio show giving good relationship advice. Hes been living a lie and hiding a secret. Yeah hes embarrassed, but living a lie is exhausting and Im sure a weight has been lifted off his shoulders.

    OK...I don't see what the big deal with this is. Are priest not supposed to have feelings for anyone at all? IMO them not being able to have relationships is crazy. At least the man was going after a woman and not some little girl or boy.
