An intimate letter by one of the twentieth century's greatest spiritual thinkers delves into her struggles with faith and the Church.

Letter to a Priest outlines thirty-five key questions about Catholicism and its dogma and institutions, which had preoccupied Weil for years. Each point reveals simultaneous feelings of attraction and repulsion toward the Church as she contemplates its presence in her own life. In her letter, Weil asks the priest to reply categorically to each point she raises, to indicate whether her opinions will allow her to be received into the Church. It is believed that Weil never received a reply to this letter, written just a year before she died at the age of thirty-four.
