A Celibate Catholic priest for fourteen years, Dennis Ortman committed the unpardonable sin. He fell in love with a woman and had to make a soul-wrenching decision. He left the priesthood, married, and began a new career as a psychologist. His story recounts the inner struggles he faced coming to his decision and the influences on his entering and leaving the priesthood. His personal odyssey, beginning in an alcoholic home, took him around the world. Sent for theological studies in Rome, he experienced the grandeur, dark side and inner workings of the Church. Inspired by a meeting with Mother Teresa, he worked for a summer in India among the poorest of the poor with her religious order. There he encountered the wisdom of the East that stretched and challenged his faith. Working as a parish priest after the hope and promise of the Second Vatican Council and the social unrest of the 1960s, he experienced the disillusionment of many American Catholics. His story can help anyone making a transition in their life and seeking to discover the deeper meaning of their faith.
