“Bless Me Father For They Have Sinned does not shy away from the day-to-day encounters with sensual temptations, boundary violations, and alcohol abuse. The reader has a ringside seat as these men and women grapple with mental health issues, struggle with questioning power structures, instigate changes to training and rehabilitation protocols, and try to bring their venerable church into alignment with a contemporary modus operandi.” ~ Ralph Steele, M.A., author of Tending the Fire: Through War and the Path of Meditation
“An exciting journey into life in the Roman Catholic Church, a remarkable account of details and events. A wonderful book full of insight into the inner workings of the church. The author obviously has a broad and deep understanding of what makes people (and organizations) work, or not, as the case may be.” ~ L.R. Sheridan, author of Eyes of a Sociopath
“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to write about a book which I believe is a gift to the world. I alsoleftmy religion with no bitterness, as Father Paul seems to have done. I can relate to his story–I believe him. Instead of being judgmental–he is simply stating the facts. I am confident this will come across to Catholics and non- Catholics alike.” ~ Mary Myers
