THROWBACK: In 2011, a former knight of the alter tagged a Catholic priest assigned at a church in Angeles City as a ‘home wrecker’ after the latter allegedly destroyed his once happy family.
The former knight of the altar identified as Den Dimalanta, a resident of Villa Rosario in Angeles City has formally filed charges of adultery against Father Jeffrey Louie Maghirang, newly oriented priest and Arah F. Zablan, wife of the complainant.
He said that his life together with his wife was very happy and peacefully until Father Maghirang came into their life.
He claimed that Father Maghirang seduced his wife into having a secret affair.
In the month of April 2011, he discovered the disgusting affair of his wife between the parish priest after he opened the inbox of the phone of his former partner.
“During our conversation, I was disgusted when bishop Ambo was even protecting Father Maghirang. To show him the truth, I showed Bishop Ambo my laptop and he was shocked in reading one of the message sent by Fr. Maghirang to my wife which reads, SIGE NA BABES SLEEP NA TAYO GAGAWA PA AKO NG HOMILY, (Babes, let’s sleep, I have to prepare my homily) Dimalanta said.
He also said that after that day, Maghirang was quickly suspended from being a priest.
The complainant also said that during his confrontation with the priest, Father Maghirang admitted his affair with his wife, but later denied the same when he was asked by his superior Bishop Pablo David.
However, in 2012, the city of prosecutor dismissed the adultery case against Father Maghirang, citing lack of evidence.
Because of this, the complainant has not filed a motion for reconsideration or taken any other legal action.
Several blogs already mentioned the case including RJ Nieto in his article about the sins of several priest.
