A priest lied about having prostate cancer to get his parishioners to send him to Lourdes for a miracle.
Commentary from a priest colleague:

Commentary from a reader of the news site:
It’s a wonder he wasn’t made a bishop!
What about his seminary? The Priestly Fraternity of St Peter Seminary in Lincoln, Nebraska once sent him home when he lied about his health.

The diocese transferred him to a city 3,000 miles away. What would you have done? Before clicking the link, care to offer any guesses as to where this guy was serving?
