A prominent Catholic priest who advised Mel Gibson’s movie, “The Passion of the Christ,” has decided to leave the priesthood to start a family, reports Crux Now, a publication about issues affecting the church.

“After taking some months of sabbatical to be with family and to dedicate more time to prayer and retreat, I have decided to ask the Holy Father, Pope Francis, to release me from the duties and responsibilities of the clerical state,” Father Jonathan Morris said in a statement he made available to Crux.

Morris made regular appearances on cable, primarily Fox News. He claimed that his decision was not meant to accommodate an already existing relationship.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
