Summary:

It's an age-old Catholic ritual: worshipers confessing their sins and asking for forgiveness. But at Saint Pius Catholic Church in Baltimore, something is terribly wrong. A disturbing number of parishioners have unburdened their souls to priests only to become victims of terror and violence-even murder. Their confessions blanket the range of human transgressions, and their penance is harsh and brutal. These retributional acts appear to follow the creed: "limb for limb, eye for eye, tooth for tooth." The Monsignor at Saint Pius, Father John Bashian, is devastated by these escalating attacks. In desperation, he reaches out to a boyhood friend, Matt Sorensen, now a Special Agent with the FBI. Bless Me Father examines the actions of people whose greed and selfishness drive them to trample on the lives of others. It's a compelling journey into the worlds of religious dogma and police work.

Summary:

Bless Me Father for I Have SinnedFour small town girls are about to have the time of their lives. Mary is fortunate, spiritual, beautiful, and naïve. Stephanie is strong, smart, gifted, and sure to get her way. Ronnie is bookish, sensitive, susceptible, and unlucky in love. Roxie is funny, tough, tender, has her own agenda, and lives life on her own terms. This is a bildungsroman about the interwoven lives of four childhood friends, from their Catholic girlhood in the sixties until today. The colored ribbons they tie on an old oak tree as a childhood ritual bind their lives together. Bonded by adversity through good times and bad, these four women give us a panoramic overview of the last half century and beyond. A sweeping coming of age story of psychological and moral growth, friendship, tragedy, endurance, and triumph, with a generous serving of feminine wit and wisdom, and a not so affectionate sendup of patriarchal institutions. As Stephanie, the leader of the Daisy Girls says, "In this blend of joy, love, hate, tragedy, pain, sorrow, happiness, and triumph that is this beleaguered old world, we Daisy Girls are so lucky to have each other."An evocative look at a time that is lost forever, this is a story about four brilliant and beautiful women told through shifting points of view, an old fashioned saga, both heartbreaking and uplifting. It makes a great read before the fireplace with a bottle of wine and a box of Kleenex.About the Author: Kathy Buchen Beson has been a librarian for many years in the Fox Valley. She loves reading, long walks, bicycling, Motown music, horses, dogs, and writing. She is the author of the Rhiannon Nolan humorous cozy mystery series of nine novels and the historical fiction, Rainmaker. Bless Me Father for I Have Sinned is her first women's fiction book.

Summary:

When men live with men, there will always be the natural human inclinations to compare themselves with others-- intellectually, academically, ethically, morally, spiritually, and physically. This coupled with the perspective of the human body viewed athletically, biologically, artistically, and sensually leads to the overall feelings males have for one another. While some young men at Holy Angles Catholic Seminary struggle with their academic stresses and their choice of vocations, their admiration for one another turns to gay attractions. David Duncan finds release for his stresses with forbidden sex, and he is not alone. Friendship with a mentor and shared secrets lead to a struggle with their vows and their mutual admiration, emotional conflict, love, and how to resolve their futures with their vocations.

Summary:

BLESS ME FATHER has captured the curiosity and evoked enthusiasm of law enforcement professionals and a former Catholic priest. “Bless Me Father is a departure from Lou Saulino’s previous books about growing up with the love of sports. His fi rst crime story hits it out of the ballpark....a great read and defi nitely a page turner.” - John E. Sullivan Det. NYPD Ret. “I liked this book. It is a tough, smart and compassionate story. There are memorable characters. I know of no one who could have written a book like this. Lou has the real-life experience and the heart to give all of us the life changing thoughts.” - P. Olsinski, Teacher, Counselor, Student of People “Family, families---intertwined by: love and protection of each other, right or wrong; sports, sorrow and guilt, Bless Me Father entertains with a little sports history; but also is thought provoking---what, how do you honor faith, a memory and vows to ‘family’. An enjoyable weekend read.” - Cecile T. Woodward, Assistant Police Chief, Phoenix PD Ret.

Summary:

With amazing clarity the writer paints a picture with words of a bygone era of the American Landscape. A long time before TV, DVD?s, VCR?s, cell phones, iPODS, and the Internet. The pace was much slower and life a lot simpler. Growing up during the Great Depression kids played on the street coreners or vacant lots. Playing such games as Red Come Over and One Potato, shooting marbles, and organizing their own baseball games. Long before Little League or Soccer Moms. The players found a vacant lot, brought their own taped up baseball and bat, chose up sides, and played without benefit of uniforms or umpires.

Summary:

Got questions about Catholic family life? You've come to the right place! As a lifelong Catholic, devoted wife, diligent homeschooler, and mother of seven, Susie Lloyd knows lots of people who just might have the answers for you. Susie herself is too busy to give advice: busy giving home haircuts and finding missing socks; busy teaching her teen girls to drive, cook, and diagram sentences; busy praying for divine protection while she races off to church (late) in her full-size van. But every so often, Susie finds a few moments to share the wit and wisdom she's gleaned from: Teaching her kids about the Facts of Life: “Somewhere there must be a book which can aid me in my duty. In it there would be many pages devoted to birds, bees, and flowers. None involving kegs and station wagons.” Quelling her teen girls' phobias: “Top of the list is frumpophobia: fear of being seen in a skirt when every other teen at the party, except the statue of Mary, will be in jeans. It gets worse if your dad thinks it would be lovely not only to wear the skirt but a veil as well.” Handing on Catholic customs: “When I was small, my mother taught me to say a Hail Mary whenever I heard an ambulance. It's really a beautiful habit and habit is the word — I don't know how many people I've prayed for whose car alarm was going off.”• Getting older: “Some people tell me I could be my teens' older sister. These people are usually 103 years old and wear their glasses hanging from a chain. But I'll take it.” Strangers who question her family size:“What's funny is, the people who call you nuts really expect you to act sane, and not like this: 'Nuts? Children, would one of you be a good girl and get the gun out of Mommy's diaper bag?'” •Enduring her children's music lessons: “Piano recitals are a time-honored way of gaining a plenary indulgence, provided we hold no attachment to murdering the piano teacher.” Joining a homeschool co-op: “None of us wanted to quit homeschooling; we just wanted somebody else to do it for us.” As she did in her beloved first book, Please Don't Drink the Holy Water, in these pages Susie Lloyd will charm and edify you with her offbeat — but always pitch-perfect — take on the joys and challenges of raising a Catholic family in today's world.

Summary:

The day breaks gloomy outside Saint Patrick's Cathedral where a solitary gunman waits for the services to end. Inside the majestic church 2,000 worshippers join New York Senator Frank Connolly and his wife, Caroline, being honored for her contributions to the Archdiocese. When the mass ends Connolly goes to confession before leaving the Cathedral - where he is met and assassinated by James Murphy. Except there is no James Murphy. His name and identity are false, his history beyond the past ten years as a janitor, untraceable, his motive never discovered. Tried and convicted, Murphy refuses to speak until, four years later - and two days before his scheduled execution - Murphy gives his last confession to the prison chaplin. The confession so startles the priest, bound by the Church's restrictions on revealing the words of the penitent - the Sacramental Seal - he races to Saint Patrick's to seek the advice of his former pupil, Dominic Cardinal Enicerlico, a street tough raised in Little Italy who has risen to one the highest and most powerful positions in the Church . Having extracted the information from the chaplin, the Cardinal risks excommunication by soliciting the aid of his best friend - retired police detective Dean Napolitano - to prevent the execution by discovering why Murphy committed murder. What Dean learns is a secret maintained through coercion, bribes and murder, committed by people who will stop at nothing to keep Murphy's words from being disclosed. Anyone aware of the secret faces death, Dominic and Dean not only face death but their own demons before the secret can be disclosed.

Summary:

The inspiration for the hit London Weekend Television series of the same name, this is one confessional you’ll want to make a point of visiting Young Neil Boyd has just finished divinity school and has been newly ordained as a priest. His first post? St. Jude’s parish, a corner of London with a raucous congregation full of Irish immigrants. The flock is an odd pairing with the gentle Father Boyd, but he just might be both mad enough and tender enough to get through to them. Later adapted into a beloved British sitcom, Bless Me, Father is a humorous and sweet-natured look at Catholicism in the 1950s. Joining Boyd is the cantankerous, scheming, and brilliant Father Duddleswell, a man who is willing to do anything to make sure the Lord’s will be done, and Mrs. Pring, the sharp-tongued housekeeper who both coddles and cajoles her priestly family of two. If the church needs money, Duddleswell will place a bet to get it. If a Catholic wants to marry a Protestant . . . well, maybe he won’t go that far. Father Neil’s adventures with his parishioners are sure to delight readers of all creeds.

Summary:

It is not only young boys that Roman Catholic priests abuse; these dysfunctional, deceitful predators, who use God as an excuse for their behavior, emotionally damage many unsuspecting adult women. Bless Me, Father, For I Have Sinned: Confessions of a Priest’s Mistress is the story of one woman’s involvement with a Roman Catholic priest and how it changed her life. Just as the male victims are coming forward to tell their stories, there can be no closure for Maggie Renaldi until this story is told. During a vulnerable period in her life, Maggie meets Father Brendan O'Reilly and embarks upon a clandestine affair. Father O'Reilly's fear of commitment and his "I love you, go away" behavior threaten to destroy their friendship and their love, until Maggie intervenes and O'Reilly seeks therapy to save himself. Unfortunately, he chooses a priest-psychotherapist who adds more guilt and shame. From seminaries that require young men to beat themselves bloody to bring the flesh into subjection to bishops who play politics, from power-hungry nuns to superiors who profess "the party line," Bless Me, Father, For I Have Sinned is also a graphic picture of church politics and hypocrisy. Maggie Renaldi is not her real name. All the names as well as the places have been changed to protect the innocent (as well as the guilty).

Summary:

The mean streets of inner-city Chicago and the high-rise housing projects are a tough place to grow up unless you learn to swim like the other fish. Emmett Casey is a quick study but a slow learner, and he learns most of his lessons the hard way. As he navigates through the guilt and shame instilled by the Catholic nuns and priests, he learns that he can only trust his own instincts and the example that his father sets for him. He struggles to function in a world where he is far too smart for a society that moves too slowly for his restless spirit. He finds trouble because it is more interesting than the life that surrounds him, but trouble can have mortal implications when it goes beyond just interesting. Bad decisions and lack of commitment are tough to counter. As a young adult with no direction the Army finds him. War takes him to the places within himself that he fears the most. The man in the mirror begins to resemble his father.Through the steaming jungles of Vietnam, Emmett struggles with his world and himself. The rough beginnings in the slums of Chicago shaped him and made him tough; the last thing he wanted to be. Good and evil become relative to the situation, and he learns to dance with his devils-quickly. Balancing heroism and catastrophe, Emmett walks through his damaged childhood to become a decorated veteran, finding trouble and salvation at every juncture. He prays for redemption but knows he doesn't deserve it, forgiveness although he cannot accept it. Ultimately, the time has come for him to choose: face his ill-conceived choices and rise above his actions-or die.

Summary:

From the series that inspired the hit London Weekend Television sitcom Bless Me, Father: St. Jude’s parish is as lively as ever After finishing his first year at St. Jude’s, Father Neil finally feels as if he has his feet firmly planted underneath himself. His rapport with Father Duddleswell is as strong as ever, and even Mrs. Pring is showing him a softer side. Things are looking up for this young curate. But St. Jude’s is still full of surprises. In this uproarious installment of Neil Boyd’s semiautobiographical series, the clergy of St. Jude’s is confronted with all manner of crisis: personal, political, and cricket-related. There is the dilemma of Dr. Daley, whose drinking is causing his health to deteriorate but who worries that becoming a teetotaler will ruin his personality. Then there are the animals overrunning the church, much to Father Duddleswell’s chagrin, as a new donkey is followed by a fresh litter of kittens. Sharp yet poignant, Boyd’s stories are a pleasant return to a simpler era.
