Petra  Morsbach - Servant of God


Trials and tribulations of a Catholic priest out in the sticks

Isidor Rattenhuber, plagued by red hair, a stubborn stammer and a childhood spent in a poor and unloving home, becomes a priest in order to escape from all this. In the liturgy he finds order and security and his speech impediment gets lost when he reads the Holy Scripture.

And so for years he works in a small parish that goes by the name of Bodering where, inside the confessional box and out, he finds out about the fortunes and sins of his flock and struggles with loneliness and antiquated Church structures. And in the end he almost loses everything that kept him going down the years: his faith.
