1 Mins read

Catholic Priest, Father Riccardo Ceccobelli, 42, hangs up cassock after revealing inside the San Felice church in Massa Martana, in Perugia, Italy that he has fallen in love.

Churchgoers in a town in central Italy assembled for Mass as usual but were not ready for the confession they got from their own parish priest.

Reverend Father Riccardo Ceccobelli, 42, revealed on Sunday, April 11, inside the San Felice church in Massa Martana, in Perugia, that he had fallen in love.

“I cannot not continue to be coherent, transparent and correct with regards to her (the Church), as I have always been so far,” Ceccobelli told his parishioners, according to a statement published on Tuesday, April 13, by the diocese.

“My heart is in love although I have never had the opportunity to transgress the promises I made,” he explained.

“I want to try to live this love without repressing it, without pushing it away.”

Ceccobelli, who for six years has been the priest of the small town of over 3,550 inhabitants, received the blessing of his superior, Bishop Gualtiero Sigismondi, who was at the priest’s side when he addressed the parish, according to the statement.

The priest, whose story was reported in national newspapers Tuesday, has been suspended from his duties and formalities have begun to return him to the lay state.

“All my gratitude to Don Riccardo for the service done so far,” said Bishop Sigismondi.

“Above all my most sincere wishes go to Don Riccardo that this choice, made in full freedom as he confided to me, may ensure him serenity and peace.”
