"Father Maurice Dillane, a curate in the Woodford-Looscaun parish in east Galway (Ireland), quit the Clonfert diocese after he was confronted by his bishop. The 73-year-old priest is believed to have first met the 31-year-old mother of his child, a Dublin-based teacher, while serving in the nearby parish of Mullagh and Killoran. The baby was born late last year.
"...I would like to think that somebody, whatever age they are, if they fall in love with somebody who falls in love with them, and they want to have a relationship, I would not stand in the way of that.” Fr Maher said: “Any priest who doesn’t fall in love is only half a priest.”
PADRE POINT: Maybe they can get a deal on diapers...2 for 1 special...baby's and dad's depends!
