MANILA - Catholic priest Romeo Obach has already apologized to the 17-year-old single mother he berated during a christening ceremony last Sunday morning.
Fr. Alfonso Suico, Media Liaison of the Redemptorist Church, said Obach is barred from celebrating Mass and other religious activities pending an internal investigation.
The teen mother, however, said it is difficult for her to forgive at this time.
She said she was deeply hurt by the incident considering that there were many witnesses when the priest lambasted her.
