italian priest commits suicide

Oct 29, 2014 – Italian Catholic Priest Hanged Himself Inside Church Sacristy In Italy

An Italian priest who admitted to sexually abusing a young teenage girl hanged himself in the sacristy — the cleric’s changing room in his church — the diocese of Santa Croce in northern Italy said Wednesday.

The priest, 48, who belonged to the Slovenian community in Trieste, had been accused of committing “grave acts” years earlier with a then 13-year-old girl.

He confessed to his bishop Giampaolo Crepaldi that the reports were true and asked for two days to prepare a letter asking for the forgiveness of God, the Church and the victim.

But when Crepaldi arrived Tuesday afternoon to officially strip him of his priestly duties and inform him an enquiry would be launched into his actions, he found the priest hanging in the sacristy.

    Teh reward of sin is death. He can’t withstand being exposed for raping a minor

    But it would have been better for him to be expose then repented of his sin instead of taking his own life. He failed to understand that shame or disgrace of this world is for a while. How can he escape God’s judgement?
    May God have mercy on his soul.

    God, who created us, wants us to marry just bcos he knows our nature. Other priests should get married as nature is uncheatable.

      Nobody is forced into priesthood. some are never called to priesthood by God rather they entered just to be called a priest, not knowing the consequences

    I feel sorry for the girl and at the same time for the priest. “Now we know in part…” Many of us do worse things in our privacy but just because no one sees us we appear to be saints and then cast stones at fellow men. If he had prayed God would have definitely forgiven him and He won’t have remembered his sin anymore but the problem is with fellow men who are not even saints either. They will not forgive him but rather continue to stone him directly and indirectly even after he has genuinely repented neglecting the moles in their own eyes. My point is this, if we call ourselves christians and claim to have the love of God in us, we should show that by not casting stones at fellow men especially those who have genuinely repented of their sins. Some of the words we say and our attitudes to people kill faster than weapons… Let love the way!

      @ LEKAN FEYISAN, WHY SHOULD ANYONE FEEL SORRY FOR THIS WANKER PRIEST??? AND FOR YOUR INFO, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I’M NOT DOING ANYTHING IN MY PRIVACY OR PUBLICLY THAT IS WORSE THAT THIS PERVERT OF A TRASH CALLED PRIEST, I BET IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD THAT WAS TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY THE SCUMBAG, YOU WON’T BE FEELING SORRY FOR HIM.
      I RESERVED THE RIGHT TO FORGIVE OR NOT TO FORGIVE AND I CHOSE NOT TO FORGIVE THIS WEIRDO. I HOPE HE DIED X 10..
      YOU CAN KEEP ON LOVING HIM IF YOU WANT, OR BETTER YET LET A PRIEST BABYSIT FOR YOU…GOOD LUCK!

      i will break it down for u. I do share ur disgust on what horrible thing this preist has done. its insane what he did and disgusting. But, I believe he felt horrible about what he did to the point where he took his own life. here is where i’m against ur comment. U said ” i choose not to forgive this weirdo” but lemme ask u, are u the creator?. for the creator to forgive us, we ourselves must learn to forgive others. trust me, it is hard but it is the law of the Holy one. I didnt call u an idiot for calling this guy out ( cuz i feel the exact way u feel about him) but i ask u this question..as a mere human being to another, who are you to decide whether u forgive him or not? what if the creator has forgiven him? remember Ola, he who created you and I is watching therefore u must be careful of what u say. I apologize i called u an idiot, brother.

    @ jay. I appreciate and accept your apology, it’s incident like such make me to not be a believer, nothing against your religion/faith. if there’s a creator, why didn’t he intervene in this horrific act against an Innocent child? when there is a crime against a child. I take it real personal…daily in this world you have people use culture, politics and religion to commit all kind of atrocity against the less privilege. this priest hide behind his priesthood gown to take advantage of a child. the girl I’m sure is scared for life…SAD!
    if there’s a creator, I’m certain he gave me a choice in life, I chose not to forgive the priest…I admire your sympathy for him. but a child abuser/molester does not get my sympathy. I’m very sorry if I offends anyone with my words, it wasn’t my intentions.
    thanks for responses..

      Thnx for the response. And again you are right, what some humans do will make you question the very existence of God. But here is the trick, The creator has warned of of exactly ppl like this.You do have ur opinion and i respect it. But all am saying dont question why God didnt do this or that. He is very much aware. Only him knows what he is doing. But pls, dont think for one minute he doesnt exist. cuz he does. Take a look how ur body functions on a day to day. someone SUPERIOR must have designed that trust me. Anyways am not here to preach, but am glad we were able to talk about our differences. one love.
