Bless Me, Father…
In Australia in the 1950s, a young Italian migrant boy, Anthony Fabrizi, growing up in Cronulla, a southern beach suburb of Sydney, is bruised by his first love. Innocently, he turns to the Catholic Church, but the deception that occurs at the hands of the brothers and priests he has admired and trusted reveals the pure evil that can exist in a human’s heart. Determined to keep his pledge to God, he retreats to Rome, headlong into the underbelly of the world’s holiest institution, the Vatican. There he discovers a church with an unspeakable past. Worse still, he has evidence of murder in the highest order. Now he has to run, not only to save himself, but the life of the only woman he has ever loved.
