AN "ANNULMENT" FOR PRESBYTER LOUIE?
Presbyter Louie may have grounds for the equivalent of a marriage annulment of his ordination. Given what he said upon being ordained, it is clear that he was under some sort of coercion to become a priest. Even if that is not the case, it appears that he was hesitant to go forward. Imagine getting married with the same feelings about "messing up", i.e. cheating on your spouse:
Well, "Pale Luis," YOU MESSED UP. Now's your chance to "bring it to the light." And then get an "annulment." It's clear to us that you did not really want to be a priest. You obviously felt trapped. And sadly, you are NOT alone.
NOTE TO ROME: Our local problems are one thing, and you may feel that you do not have jurisdiction over them. However, the coercion of men to become priests IS within your jurisdiction to address. In fact, given the massive damage coerced vocations and ill-formed priests can cause to themselves and others, you have a duty to souls to address it.
