Cutié's Lady Wants Your Prayers

Woman snapped on beach with priest asks for privacy

The woman who was caught canoodling with randy reverend Alberto Cutié, isn't ready to go to confession just yet, but she is asking for your prayers.

Ruhama Buni Canellis is seeking a little help from above a day after she was identified as the woman getting fresh with Father Cutié on the beach.

"As a single mother, I ask that the members of the media respect my privacy and the privacy of my 14 year old son, Canellis said in a statement. "I want to thank my family, my friends and so many others for their outpouring of love and support.  I ask that everyone continue to pray for us.  Thank you."

Canellis, 35, was refusing to talk and fled her apartment yesterday when reporters showed up to interview her, darting off in a pickup truck with another man.

The Cutié controversy is fast becoming a sideshow, with a rally in support of the embattled priest turning into violence yesterday.

Things got ugly when supporters, waving signs and voicing their support outside the priest's former church, St. Francis de Sales, clashed with a Cutié dissenter.

Jose Soler, 69, was ranting that Cutié had "hurt God" when he was shoved to the ground and surrounded by the pro-Cutié mob. Police quickly broke up the the fracas. 

Cutié, 40, was ousted from his Miami Beach parish earlier this week after scandalous photos supposedly showing the Catholic prist frollicking on the beach with Canellis were printed in a Spanish-language magazine.

Supporters are scheduled to hold yet another rally outside the church tonight at 7 p.m.
