Prison Journal Volume 1: Cardinal George Pell

Innocent!

That final verdict came after Cardinal George Pell endured a grueling five years of accusations, trials, conviction, humiliation, character assassination, and finally more than a year of imprisonment after being convicted by an Australian court of a crime he didn't commit.

Led off to jail in handcuffs, following his sentencing on March 13, 2019, the 78-year old Australian prelate began what was to be six years in jail for "historical sexual assault offences." Cardinal Pell endured more than thirteen months in prison, eight of those in solitary confinement, before the High Court voted 7-0 to overturn his original convictions. His victory over an extreme travesty of justice was not just personal, but one for the entire Catholic Church.

Bearing no ill will toward his accuser, judges, prison workers, journalists, and those harbouring and expressing hate for him, the Cardinal used his time in prison as a kind of "extended retreat". He eloquently filled notebook pages with his spiritual insights, prison experiences, and personal reflections on current events both inside and outside the Church, as well as moving prayers.

"These prison diaries should never have been written. That they were written is a testament to the capacity of God's grace to inspire insight, magnanimity, and goodness amidst wickedness, evil, and injustice. That they were written so beautifully bears witness to the Christian character that divine grace formed in their author, Cardinal George Pell." — George Weigel, from the Introduction

Prison Journal Volume 2: Cardinal George Pell

In this second of three volumes, Cardinal Pell receives the terrible news that his first appeal is rejected. With the same grace, wisdom and calm perseverance we see on display in volume 1, he continues his quest for justice by appealing to the Australian High Court. Glimmers of hope emerge as more legal experts, including non-Catholics, join the chorus of those demanding that this miscarriage of justice be reversed.

The Persecution of George Pell

This book is the story of how the highest levels of the police, judiciary and politics in Australia, plus victim lobby groups, compensation lawyers, and journalists for major news media, found common cause to persecute, convict and jail an innocent man.

They had been persuaded by fanciful accusations that, twenty years earlier, George Cardinal Pell of the Catholic Church had sexually abused two 13-year-old choirboys in the priests’ sacristy of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne, on a Sunday morning after Mass.

The campaign against Pell aimed not only to personally destroy one of Australia’s most influential religious leaders, but to trash the reputation of his Church as well. To get their man, lawyers, judges and a Royal Commission had to reverse long-standing legal principles including the presumption of innocence, guilt beyond reasonable doubt, and the onus of proof being on the prosecution. They insisted that a claim of child sexual abuse must always be believed. Had it succeeded, the campaign would have set damaging precedents for the rule of law in Australia. Pell spent 400 days in prison before a unanimous judgment of the High Court acquitted him, and set him free.

The persecution of George Pell is a story not only of a serious injustice heaped on one individual but also of the damage that can be done to a civilised society by ideologues within our major institutions when they are convinced of their own virtue and determined to get their own way.

The Science, Morality and Safety of Vaccines: A Catholic Perspective

In The Science, Morality & Safety of Vaccines: A Catholic Perspective, biologist Pamela Acker answers the following questions:

What lessons can history teach us about the scientific basis for vaccination and its role in the eradication of infectious diseases?

What are the moral arguments for and against the current practice of vaccination and how should Catholics evaluate these arguments?

What are the medical risks associated with vaccination in general and with the COVID-19 vaccine in particular?

“The book Vaccination: A Catholic Perspective by Pamela Acker is a very timely book, arriving just when clarity is needed on the subject of vaccinations, especially in light of COVID-19. Ms. Acker’s book provides a clear and succinct discussion, accessible to most lay people, of the nature of the vaccines, how they are derived and produced. It also provides an analysis of the safety of the vaccinations. The strength of the book is the precision with which she arrives at her scientific conclusions, never overstating the facts while still presenting with clarity what is truly known about the safety and efficacy of the various forms of vaccination. For those who want a coherent presentation on the subject of vaccination in a readable and accessible text, I highly recommend this book.” ―Fr. Chad Ripperger, Ph.D.

“An incisive, eye-opening and informative presentation of the science underpinning the concept, development and impact of vaccination programmes: facts and fallacies. An important discourse for those who are vaccine hesitant but a must-read for vaccine advocates, policy makers and government enablers.” ―Dr. Christopher J. Clovis, Ph.D., B.Sc., B.Ed.

“As a practicing family physician, I foresee that the book will be a very useful guide for anyone with an interest in the subject of immunization. Pamela Acker takes the very complex subject of the human immune system and vaccination and explains it in a well-organized, simple manner that even non-medical persons can understand. Immunization has become a dogma of the current healthcare system that is in desperate need of repair from an authentically Catholic perspective. I highly recommend this timely publication.” ―Jeffrey J. Starre, MD (27 years in private practice)

The Book of Love: A Testament of Padre Pio

'With man witnesses in Italy and France, Padre Pio, before dying, wanted to assure the world and the Church that the "Book of Love" is the only gift of Jesus able to bring back Peace and Love, Prosperity to the Church and the World. Padre Pio assured that the "Book of Love" is the very little book devoured by John (the Apocalypse). In Padre Pio's opinion nothing, in this time, is more important than the diffusion of the "Book of Love," which is the Blessing, the reconciliation of God with man after the "very serious betrayals to (sic) the Truth of the Holy Gospel." - From a letter by the translator, Dr. Luigi Garpari.

The beautiful words in this booklet were written down by Dr. Garpari as spoken by Padre Pio, as the Saint received them from Jesus.

35 pages long.

The Devil is Afraid of Me: The Life and Works of the World's Most Famous Exorcist

“We can do nothing against you because you are too protected!”

So declared a frustrated host of devils to Father Gabriele Amorth, the priest exorcist in Rome who spent thirty years battling the Devil and his minions by performing more than sixty thousand exorcisms. All the while, he deftly used modern media to awaken our disbelieving modern culture ― and even the Church ― to the reality of the Devil and his nefarious actions at all times and everywhere.

In these eye-opening pages, angelologist Father Marcello Stanzione tells the fascinating story of Father Amorth and his life as an exorcist. You’ll learn of his daily schedule and how he managed to perform dozens of exorcisms each week. You’ll find out what his exorcism room looked like, and how various devils responded to his bold practice. Best of all, you’ll read Father Amorth’s own startling explanations of many truths about the Devil that our culture has forgotten ― and about the canny methods the Deceiver has adopted in recent years to corrupt believers and unbelievers alike.

Includes answers to questions like:

How can we recognise the action of the Evil One?

Can a person in the afterlife enter spiritually into a living person?

Which prayers of liberation are the most successful?

Can demons hide from an exorcist?

What are the six characteristics of evil spells?

Are all instances of clairvoyance managed by demons?

What are the four methods a demon uses to enter souls?

Why is there no longer any possibility of salvation for the fallen angels?

Is an exorcist infallible in his judgement and his ministry?

What are the arms of combat that each of us must use to do battle with the devil?

And many more surprising facts about the devil and how to resist him.
