Spirituality is found beyond the church, not in the church. The church is a school. You learn your lessons and then you graduate and become an adult Christian.
In Beyond the Vows I fictionalized the story of my own five years as a Catholic priest. “The young priest sets out to save the world, but soon discovers that he’s the one who needs saving. He tries to have his church confront modern problems, but he finds that money rules. On his journey to the light he meets a greedy bishop, a philosopher-theologian janitor, a courageous young woman and a wild ex-nun. He tries to replace the fierce God of his childhood with a God of love. Even though he pours himself into parish work, a deep void still eats at his heart. He is alone.”
What is love? Where is God? Why celibacy? When do you follow your conscience and not the church? These are the questions of Beyond the Vows.
