Laicization
Question from Wondering on 7/7/2003:

Suppose a priest is laicized in the "proper" way. How does he usually explain to people his "state," especially if married after some time? Thank you

Answer by Catholic Answers on 7/8/2003:

Dear Wondering,

If a priest goes through the process of laicization, he is a Catholic in good standing. Should he want to, he may explain why he sought laicization, but it is a personal matter and he is under no obligation to offer explanations to anybody. If people know that he was ordained a priest, it is appropriate that they be informed that he has been laicized and is in good standing with the Church.

Usually, it is not a matter that people bring up because of its personal nature.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
