Vows of silence : the abuse of power in the papacy of John Paul II by Jason Berry( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berry and Renner follow the trail of evasions and deceit that leads directly to the Vatican--and taints the legacy of Pope John Paul II. Based on more than six years of investigative reporting and hundreds of interviews, this book is an account of Vatican cover-ups and the tumult they have caused in the church worldwide. The book reveals an agenda of top-down control under John Paul II and a hierarchy so obsessed with secrecy as to spawn disinformation. This is not a book about sexual abuse; it is a book about abuse of power, throughout the Vatican. The book cuts between the life story of Father Tom Doyle, who sacrificed a diplomatic career with the Vatican to seek justice for sex-abuse victims, and Father Marcial Maciel, an accused pedophile and founder of the militaristic religious order, the Legion of Christ. One of the most mysterious and powerful men in the Catholic Church, Maciel has built a network of priests, lay people, and elite prep schools in more than twenty countries, using the Legion as a fundraising machine to position himself as a favored figure of John Paul II. Drawing on in-depth interviews with Father Doyle and with ex-Legionaries who filed a canonical suit against Maciel, as well as interviews with Vatican insiders and an array of sources in Mexico, Ireland, Canada, and Australia, the authors provide a penetrating account of a hierarchy directly in conflict with its followers.--Publisher

Este libro narra los hechos que condujeron a la caída del padre Marcial Maciel bajo el papado de Benedicto XVI. Según las investigaciones que realizaron los autores, el Vaticano en el papado de Juan Pablo II obstruyó varias investigaciones iniciadas tras numerosas acusaciones de abuso sexual contra el cura Maciel. Maciel fue el fundador de la orden religiosa de la Legión de Cristo. También presenta el caso de Tom Doyle, cuya búsqueda de justicia para las víctimas de abusos sexuales por parte de sacerdotes le costó sacrificar una prometedora carrera diplomática en el Vaticano
Vows of silence by Jason Berry( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vows of Silence is an anatomy of the Vatican justice system, following the haunting saga of Father Marcial Maciel, who won the favor of Pope John Paul II despite years of pedophilia accusations. The greatest fundraiser of the modern church, Maciel founded the Legionaries of Christ, a religious order with a $650 million budget and history of controversial tactics. The film tracks a 1998 abuse charge against Maciel filed with Cardinal Ratzinger. The Secretary of State, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, tried to abort the case. In 2004, with Pope John Paul dying, Ratzinger took action"--Container
