About the Book

Yearning to receive absolution that will forgive “a platitude of sins” during his lifetime of service to the Roman Catholic Church as a curate of Rome, the dying Father Patrick O’Flannery Donovan of the Society for Jesus makes his last confession. That confession transforms into a full exposition of the triumphs and tragedies befalling his Holy Mother Church during the twentieth century. However, while this confession is a compelling history of Vatican City, it is an account the Holy See is desperate to forever keep hidden from the lay public. But can a monumental, epic story of this caliber truly remain eternally classified as secrets of the State?
