"I share this statement on very painful days for me. A decree from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith determines that I "resigned from the ecclesiastical state". This fact disturbs the meaning of my life, which has been expressed in activities of the priestly ministry in more than five decades, hard.

I hope to continue to make a contribution to society, such as in the Church, a service to life, reconciliation and solidarity, calling each Christian and every citizen, without losing the hope that I will reverse the penalty imposed on me.

On the other hand I feel compelled to deny the accusations made by Mr Jaime Concha in various media. He says, among other things, that he was sexually abused by me, in a sacramental confession, when he studied at a Marist College.

That is not true. I do not know Mr. Concha. In any case I confirm under oath that I have never failed to sanctify this great sacrament.

I will continue to cooperate with the judiciary, as I have always done, and I am confident that it will establish the truth of the facts.

I appreciate the countless expressions of support from people who believe in my word".
