I loved the message of this story! I could identify with the situation and with the narrator's feelings, because a pastor of my hometown church of similar loving and noble character was also fired for no apparent reason.

This story could use dialogue and also descriptions of specific acts or events that bring Father Gracias' character alive. I enjoyed the description of the "approved" pompous pastor flaunting his expensive car. A specific contrasting picture of Father Gracias (perhaps transporting someone in need in his old beat-up car?) would be most effective here.

Wow. This is indeed very true for some of the 'real' pastors out there today. Thanks for taking the time to write on something like this, it's a great insight.
