The relationship between love and celibacy within the Catholic Church is explored in new memoir

Evelyn McLean Brady

Human love is one of God’s most sacred gifts, but what happens when it comes to two people committed to their vows of celibacy? In her engrossing memoir “The Nun and the Priest: Love, Celibacy and Passion,” Evelyn McLean Brady explores the memories, feelings, and growth she experienced with Hugh Brady, a Catholic priest she met as she was preparing to enter the Sisters of Mercy in Rochester, NY.
