Very interesting. I hope you'll read it for us and provide a translated summary of the worthwhile parts of the book.

Monk -

Once you have had a chance to read this, it would be helpful if you could offer some insights as to whether this book offers any new information about Maciel.

Also, thanks to my answer a while back re: Thomas Gleason.

Pope John Paul 2 would not take any action against Marciel Maciel despite the outrage over his dreadful crimes involving mostly teenage boys!

And now they want to make John Paul a saint1

What a ghastly traversty !
