When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, “I've got something to tell you.” She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly, I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce.

In my priestly life what more happiness can I get other than by inspiring people to turn to God through the intercession of Mary our heavenly Mother. So, I continue my work, I carry rosaries to parishes after parishes, preach on Mary and give witness to her powerful intercession. I believe that it is her work and not mine.

Every human being longs to be appreciated by others. That is especially true in the family. Husband and wife should admire each other even for the smallest things done by the other. This type of appreciation brings warmth and happiness to the family. Errors and offences should be forgiven. Moreover, a couple should not complain against each other in the presence of other people. If they do complain against each other, it will create chaos in the family. In my contacts with relatives and friends, I have come to know two instances of couples who responded very differently to offences.

Pope Francis says: "The family is a factory of hope, of life, of resurrection. God was the one who opened that path.” He goes on to say: “In the family we learn how to love, to forgive, to be generous and open, not closed and selfish. We learn to move beyond our own needs, to encounter others and share our lives with them. That is why it is so important to pray as a family!’’ There is an important truth most couples/parents don’t realise. How we forgive or refuse to forgive, provides the legacy our children will take into their marriages and families.

I am here in this prison cell hopelessly waiting to be freed. I wonder if it will be possible one day. Many times I think of my innocent children who are studying in primary section and how I orphaned them. I just don't know how I committed the crime.
