I do NOT understand this one? WHY was this Priest removed?!?!
“A similar decision was more clear-cut for Father Marcel Guarnizo. And the challenge could not have come at a worst time at a funeral. It happened last month in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Barbara Johnson, the daughter of the deceased, announced to the priest that her female friend was, in fact, her lover. Father Guarnizo discreetly refused to serve Johnson communion. About two weeks later, he was removed from his pastoral work in the Archdiocese of Washington.”
He hasn’t been “removed,” but only placed on a temporary administrative leave.
