Overview

En este libro personal y altamente controversial, el Padre Alberto Cutié habla de la devastadora lucha entre las promesas que había hecho como sacerdote y el amor por una mujer. Cutié, que ya había comenzado a sentir diferencias ideológicas con la Iglesia, de repente tuvo que cambiar su vida por completo el día que fue fotografiado en una playa besándose con la mujer que más adelante se convertiría en su esposa.

Cutié, que en durante años llegó a representar ante el público una nueva cara para la Iglesia Católica—admirado y amado por millones—descubrió que ya no se sentía capaz de vivir su vida con la norma de celibato sacerdotal, sobre todo porque esto implicaba defender ciertas posiciones con las que ya no estaba de acuerdo. Durante años guardó su relación en secreto mientras buscaba y rezaba para que se le apareciera una respuesta. El amor que consideraba una bendición lo estaba acercando a Dios pero alejándolo de la Iglesia. En Dilema, Cutié cuenta cómo rompió su promesa, desenterrando el controversial debate acerca del celibato obligatorio para los sacerdotes católicos romanos, y comenzó una nueva vida donde descubrió otra manera de servir al mismo Dios.

Ahora un esposo orgulloso y sacerdote episcopal (anglicano), el Padre Alberto cuenta la historia de un hombre luchando con su devoción por la Iglesia y las pasiones y convicciones de su corazón. Dilema es la historia de un sacerdote que redefinió su relación con Dios y finalmente pudo aceptar un amor que antes era prohibido.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Dilema… sin duda animará el debate acerca del celibato…Pero Cutié aclara por qué los católicos no deben confundir los altibajos de su iglesia con su religión. En realidad el catolicismo invita a pensar de manera independiente, tal como lo hace él en su libro—la consciencia del razonamiento humano, no la empolvada doctrina del Vaticano, como camino a la fe.”—Time

I read "Dilemma" in a single day. I can present the following excerpt from "Dilemma" to prove the hypocrisy that exists among the Catholic clergy: A lesbian goes to Confession where Father Cutie is presiding. She is extremely upset and crying. She tells Father Cutie that she had gone to Confession to another priest and was scolded that she and her partner risk eternal salvation if their relationship continues. Father Cutie asked who told her such a thing. When she tells him the name of the priest, Father Cutie reveals that the priest is a closeted Gay man who is currently partnered and he is mean to any Gay person who confesses to him. Father Cutie has always welcomed Gay people to the Catholic Church and never believed that they are "intrinsically disordered." Regarding the issue of celibacy, Father Cutie discusses celibacy with the force of a tsunami. He historically tracks down the issue of celibacy dating back to the 12th century when it became compulsory. He states that celibacy is a main ingredient for the current sex abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. Albert Cutie made it an aspiration to take up the cause for Immigration Reform in the United States because his ancestors came from Cuba and he had heard of the executions and suffering under the Castro regime. The Archbishop of Miami immediately issued a proclamation condemning Father Cutie for his "scandal" against the Catholic Church when pictures were revealed in the press with Albert and Ruhama kissing each other on the beach. Father Albert was stripped of his salary, pension, and health benefits. Father Albert was disgusted with this condemnation and stated that priests who molested children were dealt less severely than he. I liked Father Cutie's description of the Catholic Church as being "antiseptic" and wanting to rid itself of germs (priests whom they view to go against their dictates). Father Cutie had plenty of support from his own family for marrying Ruhama and later becoming an ordained Episcopal priest. To be adversarial, there were some enemies who hurt Father Cutie with vicious words. For example, he and his wife attended his niece's first Holy Communion at a Catholic Church in Florida where he grew up. The priest during his homily talked about the evils of this world and explicitly looked at Albert and Ruhama when he scolded those who dropped out of the Catholic Church. Father Cutie revealed in his book that he was really hurt by those words. Father Cutie has written a powerful book that should not fall on deaf ears in the Vatican. "Dilemma" is a book that will ignite sparks in the Catholic Church and rightfully so. "Dilemma" will inspire Catholics who want change in the Catholic Church because the Vatican is certainly not listening.

I felt that the book was repetive and lacked depth.

This book was profoundly moving, honest, poignant and relatable. Thank you, Rev. Cutie, for giving voice to what so many lapsed Catholics feel.

I loved that father cutie gave his honest opinion while also providing facts about the roman catholic churches that many question but no one would speak about!!! It was definitely an inspirational book that answered a lot of my own questions and even opened my mind about other branches of Christianity.

I believe Father Cutie' was being as honest as possible. His writing truly seems to be a soul searching memoir. I can understand that the Roman Catholic church would be upset by many of the revelations here but I see this priest as representing the dilemma faced by innumerable priests over the ages. How sad that the church cannot see fit to bring itself up to modern day standards. They are missing out on having many young people who would happily dedicate their lives if celibacy was not demanded of them. No wonder the elderly priests die lonely and forgotten. The church bureaucracy has totally denied them the love of a life partner and children as well. Thank goodness he has finally moved on and made a real life for himself, the woman he loves and their children. They have my admiration.

Este libro me parece muy bueno, soy Católica Romana, pero también entiendo y se que los Sacerdotes son seres humanos y que también le puede suceder lo que nos sucede a todos, la gente piensa que son seres sobrenaturales y que no tienen sentimientos. A la Sra. que habla barbaridades del padre y del libro, le digo que se ubiquese, tal vez tiene mas pecados que todos nosotros juntos, todo lo que sucede en el mundo tiene una razón de ser, y estoy segura que si Dios no hubiera querido esta feliz pareja no estuviera ahora junta... El libro relata la realidad de la iglesia Católica de la que muchos tratan de tapar con un dedo pero me parece de lo mas injusto que no se entienda que Dios nos hizo para amarnos los unos a los otros y que el tiempo de Dios es perfecto....

Si, me gustó mucho su libro y lo recomiendo aunque tengo que decir que siendo una persona tan publica que bueno hubiese sido que fuera franco y dejara el sacerdorcio mucho antes por su amor; su doble vida no era honesta . Mi esposo, que "no le gustan los curas" cuando lo vio en el programa de A Mano Limpia le gustó tanto su forma de expresarse tan sincero, que me dijo,ahora le tengo lastima a los curas... En su libro el dice lo que muchos catolicos pensamos pero no decimos . Le deseo la mejor suerte a el, su esposa e hijos. Dios los bendiga.
