Overview

This work of fiction satirizes a church scandal that took place in Manassas, Virginia between 1998 and 2002. The chronology and many details come directly from court depositions and newsprint articles, and many of the quotations come directly from church-sponsored lecturers and publications. The story unfolds with a predator priest using his role as a spiritual director to seduce a woman in his flock. The local bishop engages in a sordid cover-up. A good priest is persecuted for helping the aggrieved husband. Welcome to the Hotel Novus Ordo suggests a different outcome than the real-life story. Irony and humor highlight the underlying causes of the scandal and lessen the pain of reliving the events.
