Father, Mr. Morris

This is interesting, in a sad way. Former Fr. Jonathan Morris, ex-commentator and now ex-Catholic priest is interviewed by Martha MacCallum

He explains his recent decision to be laicized. He's explanation is that he never intended to become a priest and after 25 years from Seminary to priesthood, he had to take action to actually follow God's real plan for him as he now felt in his own heart and gut Wow.... 

Well I definitely don't know his heart and I do applaud his continued acknowledgement of his faith in the Catholic Church, I can't say I understand. Many of the Saints, including Mother Theresa had experiences that made them doubt their vocations, even experiences of the dark soul. Even those who have been married for quite some time have experienced at one point or another, that maybe they may have married the wrong person or wanted out of their relationship because of some hard-time, financial or otherwise, so I don't know if Mr. Morris will have the fortitude to weather those moments either. 

I believe he is a priest, forever as it says in Hebrews 7:17 

For it is declared: "You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek."

'll keep him in my prayers
