Randy priest popped Viagra, said affair 'ordained by God,' parishioner says

A Viagra-popping vicar from a Queens Catholic church seduced a parishioner by insisting it was "ordained by God," the woman charged in a lawsuit.

Judith Rodrigues-Lytwyn slapped the Rev. Elvis Elano, formerly of Our Lady of the Snows Church in Floral Park, with a $25 million lawsuit, charging he used his collar to coax her into bed.

In the suit filed Monday in Brooklyn Supreme Court, Rodrigues-Lytwyn, 50, said the unholy shenanigans have left her with "severe stress" and "shame."

After she went to Elano for confession in March, revealing she was divorcing her allegedly abusive husband, the priest began to come on to her like a hunk of burning love, the suit claims.

"Elano professed his love, devotion and physical attraction to [Rodrigues-Lytwyn], stating, 'Your presence struck me like a thunderbolt,'" reads the suit, posted last night on thesmokinggun.com Web site.

Rodrigues-Lytwyn's suit also names the Diocese of Brooklyn, which includes Queens, and Our Lady of the Snows Church as defendants in the legal action, charging negligence for failing to properly supervise Elano.

A spokesman for the diocese did not return a request for comment.

Elano, who had served for two years as parochial vicar at Our Lady of the Snows, was transferred two months ago to an upstate parish. He could not be reached last night.

Rodrigues-Lytwyn charges that Elano began "courting" her, "encouraging her to engage in a sexual liaison with him to assist her in overcoming her pain associated with her husband and because it was 'ordained by God.'"

She said she become "overwhelmed" by the priest's advances "and soon thereafter succumbed to them."

The suit includes photos Rodrigues-Lytwyn snapped of Elano, including one of him shirtless and kneeling next to her bed and another of him holding a red rose with his teeth. A third picture shows the two of them together during a romantic stroll on a beach in Montauk, L.I.

"Exhibit A" in the suit is a July receipt Elano received from a Salt Lake City pharmacy for an $89 prescription for Viagra.

"In preparation for these sexual liaisons, Elano ordered Viagra over the Internet in order to enhance their sexual encounters," the suit charges.

Rodrigues-Lytwyn also included an alleged Oct. 6 e-mail she got from Elano, in which he described a rash on his groin and legs she claims he got from having sex with other women.

Parishioners were stunned by the news.

"This is the first I heard about it and trust me, the choir hears everything," said a church choir member, describing Elano as "gregarious."
