Rejoice with Me!

CNN: Father Alberto Cutie, an internationally known Catholic priest who admitted having a romantic affair and breaking his vow of celibacy, is joining the Episcopal Church to be with the woman he loves, he said Thursday. […]

“Father Cutie’s actions have caused grave scandal within the Catholic Church, harmed the Archdiocese of Miami—especially our priests—and led to division within the ecumenical community and the community at large,” Favalora said in a written statement. “Today’s announcement only deepens those wounds.”

Could it be? The reason for the Pope’s
courtship of the Anglicans?
Just as the Good Shepherd would leave his
ninety-nine to find that one lost sheep, so too,
does Rome and the entire mystical Body of Christ
take extraordinary measures to
look for you, Father Cutie?
