He was a Roman Catholic priest whose love affair became headline news. Now, he shares his explosive story-in his own words...

In this deeply personal and controversial memoir, Father Albert Cutié tells about the devastating struggle between upholding his sacred promises as a priest and falling in love. Already conflicted with growing ideological differences with the Church, Cutié was forced to abruptly change his life the day that he was photographed on the beach, embracing the woman he would later call his wife.

Once a poster boy of the Roman Catholic Church-loved and admired by millions-Cutié found that he was not happy and able to live as a celibate priest, especially having to defend the number of positions he was no longer in agreement with. For years he kept his relationship a secret, while he soul searched and prayed for answers. The love that he deemed a blessing was bringing him closer to God, but further from the Church. In Dilemma, Cutié tells about breaking that promise, 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.

a self serving rant by a priest

ChristchurchLib Dec 17, 2013

"The Rev. Albert Cutié, then a well-known Roman Catholic priest and TV personality, made headlines in 2009 when a Spanish language tabloid in Florida published photos of him kissing and fondling a woman. Eventually, Cutié left the Catholic priesthood, married, and was received as a priest into the Episcopal Church. In Dilemma, he explains the challenges that faced him, given his sincere call to the priesthood and the Catholic church's absolute stand on priestly celibacy."
