Akwa Ibom Catholic priest sets to marry months after resigning.


This happens to be one of the plans of the pope, to allow priest get married, to avoid cases that are not pleasant. Just like the case of a former Akwa-Ibom State based Catholic priest, Rev. Patrick Henry Edet, who has fixed March 17, 2018 as the day to tie the knot with his fiancée who he will unveil next week, NewTelegraph reports.

Edet made the disclosure on Tuesday during his Grace Family service. While announcing his resignation on the 31st of July, 2017, he had said “the resignation marked the beginning of ‘freedom’ for his spirit and soul. He Said:

From today henceforth, I cease to be a Catholic priest, in my spirit and in my soul. I forgive those who will criticise me, I live for God. I seek freedom for my soul. As I leave, I leave smiling. I am so happy that I am free” .

He added that there was no need for him to continue with the Catholic Church because peace deserted him while he was there. He said after 11 long years, he strongly felt the need to leave, because he was feeling boxed in and it was affecting his personal relationship with God.

Now I appreciate if he wants to openly  get married and have a family of his own, Unlike those other who men who would rather hide and commit evil. He can serve God and have a family, I just don’t want him calling out the Church.
