A Spanish bishop and exorcist have stepped down to start a new life after falling in love with a divorced author of satanic-themed erotica. Xavier Novell, 52, announced last month that he was resigning from his post as Bishop of Solsona in Catalonia for “strictly personal reasons”. On Monday, it was revealed by Religion Digital, a news site, that Novell had fallen for Silvia Caballol, a divorced mother-of-two. Novell reportedly said he had ‘fallen in love’ and ‘wanted to do the right thing.’ Caballol, 38, is a writer of erotic novels featuring characters ‘possessed by the demon of lust’, a fact which has raised eyebrows among Novell’s former colleagues.
