Publisher: Cardinal Pell’s Prison Journal Will Be ‘Spiritual Classic’
The publisher expects to publish in Spring 2021 either an abridged version of Cardinal Pell’s prison journal, which runs to 1,000 pages, or the first volume of the full text, Ignatius Press said Saturday.
NEW YORK, N.Y. (June 21, 2020) — The publisher of the prison diary of Cardinal George Pell said the text reveals the courage, conviction, and Christian charity of the cardinal.
“This journal reveals the Cardinal Pell I know and that every faithful Catholic should get to know,” Fr. Joseph Fessio, SJ, of Ignatius Press told CNA June 20.
Cardinal Pell “proclaimed Christ and the Church’s moral teachings without fear and with full knowledge of what the cost would be. And he paid the price with good humor and, like Christ, a love of his enemies,” Fr. Fessio added.
