I recently returned to the Church after 20 years away. My husband and I had to get remarried as we got married in a protestant church some 7 years ago. We did this gladly and I knew it was right. To do this I met with the Priest for some lessons. I was inspired by this priest because he was and still is a very dedicated priest particularly in the area of helping people return to the Church. My difficulty is I crossed some boundaries in the help department, not sexual because my husband and I were in need. I pushed his generosity to the limit and he has backed right off understandably. However he is shortly leaving to another district and I want to sort this problem out in a correct fashion. I have rung him once to see if I could meet and do so, but he is not keen, plus he is busy organising his move. What do I do here??? I hate what happened, none of which he was to blame for, and I guess I want to remeber this short time as special. Is it best to leave it and learn from it, or is there a correct way I can do something so I can feel peace again and any damage Ive done to his trust and generosity wont harm someone else??
Im feeling ashamed, and embarrassed even asking these questions but I am bothered a lot. I have backed off from any more contact, apart from church, with a priest completely as I do not want this to happen again.
What do you think anyone?
