What does it mean to have been a failure or a success?
Diary of a Country Priest is the journal of a young priest assigned to a hostile country parish. As his illness worsens to the point of incapacitating him he struggles with his faith and prayer life and continues to put the needs of others above his own. His isolation is heart-breaking.
