“My heart is in love”-Catholic Priest quits his calling after finding love

Reverend Father Riccardo Ceccobelli, a 42-year-old Catholic priest, has announced that he has fallen in love and will be unable to keep the oath of celibacy required by the church, has gathered.

The diocese issued the following statement on Tuesday, April 13:

“I cannot not continue to be coherent, transparent and correct with regards to her (the Church), as I have always been so far.”

“My heart is in love although I have never had the opportunity to transgress the promises I made.”

“I want to try to live this love without repressing it, without pushing it away.”

According to the news, Ceccobelli, who for six years has been the priest of the small town of over 3,550 inhabitants, received the blessing of his superior, Bishop Gualtiero Sigismondi, who was at the priest’s side when he addressed the parish, according to the statement.
