Madre Pascalina: A Feminine Tour de Force
Now for the first time author Charles T. Murr (The Society of Judas) vividly recounts his conversations with Josefine Lehnert —The woman known in some circles as La Popessa.
At its core, The Godmother is a warm heart-to-heart exchange between an old nun from Bavaria and an American seminarian in his Roman years —working his way towards priesthood. It is a story of friendship, of fraternal charity rooted in their mutual admiration for a remarkable man, Pope Pius XII.
Those who read this book will certainly come away enlightened by Mother Pascalina’s unique viewpoint on Vatican politics and innuendos, her knowledge of history, her womanly wisdom, and feminine strength.
This is essential reading for anyone interested in modern Church history and for those seeking spiritual growth and development.
I wanted to share this video of my Ordination to Priesthood [May 13, 1977] with family and friends, and to show some of the places special to me during my Roman years. The video is especially dedicated to my Mother and Father.
NO WOMAN, IN TWENTY CENTURIES, EVER WIELDED MORE POWER AND INFLUENCE IN THE VATICAN.
