When Mark Moretti, a passionate but lonely Catholic priest in a small Midwestern town, falls in love with Eliani Rodriguez, a newly arrived single mother from New York City, the resistance posed by family and friends is formidable.  But it's nothing compared to what happens when he refuses to hide the relationship or leave the Church because of it. The story of one individual challenging a thousand years of dogma, Throw Away A Miracle outlines devastating consequences for Mark: the loss of either his vocation or the woman he loves. Or, possibly, both.
