My version of that has always been that, while in the Congo on assignment, Eric has a sexual relationship with Neema, the teenage girl he bonded with over photography in the village that was raided by those Congo rebels. Eric told Nicole about that day where they threatened to kill Neema unless he stepped forward to take her place. But what he never said was that the rebels found Eric and Neema lying together. The rebel was enraged that the "white devil" was with one of their own and decided to torment him for it in front of the whole village. Before Eric knew it, the priest jumps in and is killed. Neema is traumatized and runs away, not realizing she is carrying Eric's child. Eric is so deeply ashamed that his "sin" caused the death of a good man, that right there he decides to devote his life to the priesthood, to do the work the deceased priest would have done if he had lived.
Fast forward 10-12 years, just as Eric learns what Nicole did and is reeming her out for it, Kristen returns to Salem with Neema and Eric's child, a beautiful girl, and exposes what a lying hypocrite Eric is.
