I am a second generation, oldest son of an immigrant Sicilian family. I became a Roman Catholic priest. I left the priesthood and married. I raised a family and now I have returned to the priesthood again with the Independent Catholic Movement.
When I wrote this book, I wanted to be honest. I sought neither to enhance my self-portrayal nor diminish it. For me that meant I had to reveal how I honestly thought, felt, and acted at specific times in my life. I had no idea how much appreciation and pain I would experience from reviewing my life like this. It was not easy.
