Newsroom (October 16, 2020, Gaudium Press) — The diary written by Cardinal George Pell while he was in prison, will be available in January 2021.
It will be published by Ignatius Press on a series of three to four volumes, totaling 1000 pages. According to the publishing House, soon it will become a classic of spirituality.
The topics addressed in his diary are the most diverse: from his conversations with lawyers about the case to American politics and sports to his reform efforts at the Vatican.
Ignatius Press’ editor, Fr. Joseph Fessio, SJ, has emailed subscribers inviting them to donate, as the publishing house intends to supply Cardinal Pell with the “appropriate advances” for his writings.
“I have already read the first half of the diary. it is extraordinary,” wrote Fr. Fessio. “I think it will be a spiritual classic. The entire journal is about 1,000 pages, so we will print it in three or four volumes,’ he said.
“With your help, we can proceed with this project and offer Cardinal Pell appropriate advances on these volumes, which he can then use to remove much of the worry he now has about his legal debts.”
