Product Description

A Pilgrim in a Pilgrim Church is the memoir of retired archbishop Rembert G. Weakland, OSB, often remembered for the scandal surrounding his retirement. In this "coming out" story of a disgraced Catholic archbishop, you'll hear the rest of his story. More than a history of Catholic ecclesial life, it's a remarkable memoir that brings out the intellectual, musical, religious, and sexual aspects of a man with deep Catholic convictions amidst a church in transition, moving from a pre-conciliar to post-conciliar Vatican II era. Hardcover.

Publisher's Weekly

When Weakland resigned as Milwaukee archbishop in 2002 after revelations of a past homosexual relationship and a confidential payout, it was seen as another stunning episode in the unfolding clergy abuse scandal. It was especially painful to liberal Catholics who viewed Weakland as their champion. Weakland was publicly penitent, but other events that year—chief among them the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law in Boston—made Weakland's drama a footnote. With this frank and well-told memoir, that's no longer the case. A Benedictine monk, Weakland is up front about his homosexuality in a church that preferred to ignore gays, and about his failures in overseeing pedophile priests. But this is really the poignant journey of a soul, not a mea culpa about sex, with chapters on his hardscrabble boyhood and fascinating, and sometimes sobering, insights into the life of a bishop and the tensions between the American Catholic Church and the Vatican. At points the narrative has more than enough detail on the life of a globe-trotting abbot. But overall this is an invaluable historical record and a moving personal confession.
