Over the weekend, Mel Gibson finally surfaced, walking from his $14.5 million Malibu home to his Catholic church for mass over the weekend.

The actor, 54, built the chapel in 2003 and services there adhere by his "traditionalist" views -- a foot-tall crucifix is located on the altar; the priest performs mass every morning entirely in Latin and women must wear head coverings.

Gibson could use a prayer right now.

For weeks, he has been at the ugly center of a bitter custody battle with ex Oksana Grigorieva.

Almost daily, new audio tapes surface of the actor berating his 40-year-old ex, threatening violence and spewing racial slurs.

In his latest tape - posted Monday on RadarOnline - he allegedly tells Grigorieva he regrets having a baby with her and acts jealous over her ex, actor Timothy Dalton.

"Did you get my last message about me being a bad father and Tim being a great dad?" Gibson asks. "You didn't hear that one? Well, you should go f*** him … because I don't care."
