London, Sept 15 : An Italian man, who returned home early from work, was shocked to find his wife in bed with their local priest.
The incident in Chioggia near Venice came to light following reports from talian newspapers.
After finding his wife in bed in the local priest, the man stormed into the local bishop's and demanded an explanation.
Later, the local police were called to calm him down.
Meanwhile, the local bishop Angelo Daniel confirmed that the adulterous priest has been sent to another parish for "reeducation".
"I have always respected the priest in question and I will continue to respect him. You cannot discount all the good a person has done in their life just because of one mistake," the Telegraph quoted Bishop Daniel as saying.
The 53-year-old priest was described as a specialist on the Bible, and had been a good friend of the couple.
The husband, 39, and his wife, 37, have two children.
