"There is a lack of that kind of organization which favors mature judgment. Move on, move on, get it out. Schemata are multiplied without ever arriving at a considered form. The system of discussion is bad … Often the schemata arrive just before the discussions. Sometimes, and in important matters, such as the new anaphoras, the schema was distributed the evening before the discussion was to take place … Father Bugnini has only one interest: press ahead and finish."
— Cardinal Antonelli (Peritus during the Second Vatican Council)

A Parliament of Monsters by Gail Caress
published 7 November 2011 by Dr. Ronda Chervin

A wonderful godchild of mine just published a terrific books. It is kind of theological science fiction by genre – in the long line from Charles Williams, Lewis, Tolkien, etc.

The plot involves the wife of a Celtic Studies scholar who travels to Ireland to find out whether her husband was murdered by a cult group into reviving pagan ritual in an attempt to take over the world. The style is terrific. There are beautiful characterizations of the wife and her mystical little boy and lots of quotations from all our favorite writers of classics of the past.

To find out more go to Beachhead Books on the web and look for Gail Caress.
