    It is wrong for him to do that if the allegation is true. It is against the code of ethics. You cannot breach confession secrecy.Let him ask for remission from the Pope.

    Well it depends on what was said and how he went about it. Being one who works among the whites don’t rule out sentiments s. I thought that the Holy See should have personally heard from before an excommunication… What if he was set up… Nigerian in Charge of a White People’s Parish… I know what it entails.

    May God have mercy on him. He is a merciful God. To err is human and to forgive is Divine. The question is did he realise his mistakes and ask for forgiveness.

    If he truly broke the seal of the confessional, allow him to repent and have the sentence lifted by the Pope if he confesses his sin and performs penance. If he did not do it, then I pray that he does not lie simply to enter back into communion. If this sentence is not just, then God knows that and will have mercy on him.

    To err is human, to forgive divine. All people commit sins and make mistakes. God forgives them ,please forgive him pope.
