The Deacon's Bench

The former priest who caused a scandal last year is back in the news.

From the Miami Herald:

“We…take this opportunity to thank our family, church community and friends for your love and support,” Alberto said in an email announcement on Thursday.

“There is great joy in being a Father, who is also a ‘father.’ We are truly blessed!” he said.

Alberto, who was famously photographed by a tabloid while kissing Buni on a South Florida beach last year and left the Roman Catholic church to marry her as an Episcopalian, is also about to release a book.

“Dilemma: A Priest’s Struggle with Faith and Love,” due out Jan. 4, promises to tell of the conflicts simmering in the priest’s life — he now leads the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection in Biscayne Park — as the Roman Catholic faith he grew up in became increasingly at odds with his spiritual views and romantic desires.
