Genova, January 21 - An Italian priest who sparked
a row when he said women were partly to blame for the violence
they face is returning to his duties after a time out.
Father Piero Corsi, whose duties were suspended after his
remarks shocked parishioners and international audiences alike,
returned to his work Sunday as the parish priest of San Terenzo
di Lerici in the region of La Spezia in northwestern Italy.
Corsi triggered controversy shortly before Christmas when
he posted a flyer on the San Terenzo church bulletin board,
suggesting that women provoked violence against them.
His leaflet entitled: "Women and femicide - healthy
self-criticism. How often do they provoke?," caused an uproar.
In response, Corsi said his archbishop had advised him to
take some time off for "reflection and rest".
Corsi decided he had had enough time off and returned to
his parish to officiate at Sunday Mass.
There was no response from Church officials.
