Sometimes the only true struggle is the one within.
An inside look at the emotional and spiritual struggles and joys of an extraordinary priest called to serve in one of Philadelphia's toughest neighborhoods. Faced with gangs, poverty, drugs and an often pervasive feeling of hopelessness, Father Mac, as he is known, is a tireless crusader for his flock, handing out food to the poor each evening, interceding with colleges on behalf of promising students, even occasionally bailing out neighborhood kids from night court. Morse's portrayal brilliantly conveys his weary yet resolute faith, creating a moving and inspiring portrait of a complex spiritual man who struggles with translating his faith into action every day.
Based on the book "Diary Of A City Priest" by John P. McNamee
