Others may think well it’s Juliet’s fault for her own death because she killed herself.
Had Juliet not been in that situation because of Friar Lawrence she might have had a chance to live.
In the end though he was not punished although he was willing to take the blame for the tragedy after his capture.
It was the opportunity for the Prince to push the blame to the Capulets and Montague, effectively ending the feud in this manner.
Of course this with the exception when he fled instead of staying with Juliet in which he could have prevented her from committing suicide.
This cowardly behaviour would pretty much put him at blame. As a Friar he did his job of marrying them, and followed up with decisions that no one would expect leading to the tragedy.“The letter was not nice but full of charge, of dear import, and neglecting it may do much in danger.”Many others may say that Friar John was just the messenger, he did what Friar Lawrence requested him o do, but could not suceed.This irrational decision was inferior choice on Friar Lawrence’s behalf.This quote from the text shows the irresponsibility of the friar, “If, rather than to marry County Paris, Thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself, Then is it likely thou wilt undertake, A thing like death to chide away this shame, That copest with death himself to scape from it: And, if thou darest, I’ll give thee remedy.” The idea that Friar Lawrence had in mind for Juliet was a hazardous decision, that he should have known what the outcome would have been.This quote shows the truth about the meaning responsibility, when he says that Juliet’s life now rests in his hands.In the play, Romeo and Juliet, one of the main characters, Juliet, commits suicide near the ending of the play. He also, trusted someone else with extensive importance a letter to deliver to Romeo.Friar Lawrence is directly responsible for the death of Juliet. Lastly, he fled when she was in most danger at the tomb.The Friar was pretty much the facilitator but whether he made the right decisions were arguable.The debate would fall more under his competence rather his moral behaviour.
