Hi everyone, I don't know whether a sacerdote secolare is a lay priest or a 'secular priest', as in English the word secular refers to all that is completely NOT religious. The term appears in a list of people who seem to enjoy immunity from the laws that apply to the rest of us in Italy, because they belong to the Catholic church.

    Sono i sacerdoti della chiesa cattolica. Il termine "secolare" serve solo a distinguerli dai "monaci", i quali si chiamano sacerdoti "regolari" perché sottoposti a una regola.
