Please help me with a problem. My sister has been going to church for over 2 years now at a very liberal church and one of the reasons is her attraction for this very liberal priest. but she says she loves the lord and goes to daily mass even if this priest(who doesnt like to wear his collar) isnt there. She talks to him on the phone every night for hours. And she told me that he loves her and wants to leave the priesthood. but that he was thinking of leaving before he met her.
i knew he wasnt going to stay a priest when i met him. He doesnt agree with most of the Churches teachings, goes to homosexual rallys doesnt believe in NFP, and frankly im not sure if he wants to stay a Catholic. He has told our Bishop (who is retiring in August) that he wants to resign and the Bishop apparently just brushed him off. He does want to leave in a state of Grace and said they would have to wait to get married for 2 years.
My concern is that she has been with a bunch of bad men and finally found a "good one". but I dont know if its ok for a priest to leave and get married. i told her that if he cant be faithful to the Church how can he stay faithful to her. please give me some advice if this can be ok or should i discourage her from being with him. in Christ thank you.
