What can you say about a priest who will return to his priestly duties after taking a leave of absence for two years from being a priest to marry a girl he loves. What will now happen to the girl she married just dump her!! How about the child he sired with the woman... Is it right to abandon your family to serve God.. Is there justice in this kind a decission... Will this not be a precedent for other priests to follow...

In the Bible, we are told that the apostles left their families to be with Jesus' ministry. These people are from poor families and they are the bread winners. Yet, they left whatever they have to follow their calling. If the priest has the same calling as the apostles, then he is just doing the right thing. I believe those called by God should prioritize their family, but, can't God do that much much better than those he have called? There are unexplainable things when it comes to faith. I hope the priest did things because of his faith and not just to run away from his obligations.
