Dilemma: A Priest's Struggle With Faith And Love by Father Albert Cutié
Paperback: For years a poster boy for the Roman Catholic Church - loved and admired by millions - Father Albert Cutié had become increasingly unhappy and uncomfortable with his role as a priest, having to defend Church policies he no longer agreed with.
Then he met the woman who would ultimately become his wife.
Unexpectedly and miraculously, they fell in love and Cutié's dilemma grew worse. He kept his relationship a secret while he searched his soul and prayed for answers. The love that he deemed a blessing was bringing him closer to God but further from the Church.
The day that he was photographed on the beach embracing the love of his life changed everything. What had been his private agony was now a public spectacle.
In Dilemma (2012), Cutié tells about breaking his promise to the Church, reigniting the very heated debate over mandatory celibacy for Catholic priests, beginning a new way of life and discovering a new way of serving God.
Now a proud husband and Episcopal (Anglican) priest, Father Cutié takes you through the life of a man torn between his devotion to the Church and the passions and convictions of his heart. Dilemma is about a priest who redefined his relationship with God and finally accepted a love that was once forbidden.
