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 when Pope Francis announces a Vatican Three conference to re-examine the Church's doctrine of celibacy for priests, Mark risks it all by refusing to hide the relationship or leave the Church because of it.  What happens next is the story of how love inspires one man to challenge a thousand years of dogma, with potentially devastating consequences:  the loss of his vocation, the woman he loves or, quite possibly, both.
