Avellino, June 6 - A priest in the Southern
Italian city of Avellino said on Thursday that he is leaving the
Church because he has fallen in love.
Don Giovanni Botta, 60, ran the central parish of the Saint
Rosary church in the very middle-class neighbourhood close to
Corso Vittorio Emanuele.
"It hasn't been easy but I intend to be honest right to the
end, even if choices that go against the grain are difficult to
be accepted," Botta said in a letter to the Corriere di Avellino
newspaper.
Botta, who is a respected scholar of the gospel, used to
write an editorial every Sunday for the newspaper.
The woman who he has fallen in love with is a 50-year-old
from Turin, in Northern Italy, who has reportedly resided in the
Avellino area for some time.
