It's an age-old Catholic ritual: worshipers confessing their sins and asking for forgiveness. But at Saint Pius Catholic Church in Baltimore, something is terribly wrong. A disturbing number of parishioners have unburdened their souls to priests only to become victims of terror and violence-even murder. Their confessions blanket the range of human transgressions, and their penance is harsh and brutal. These retributional acts appear to follow the creed: "limb for limb, eye for eye, tooth for tooth." The Monsignor at Saint Pius, Father John Bashian, is devastated by these escalating attacks. In desperation, he reaches out to a boyhood friend, Matt Sorensen, now a Special Agent with the FBI. Bless Me Father examines the actions of people whose greed and selfishness drive them to trample on the lives of others. It's a compelling journey into the worlds of religious dogma and police work.

BLESS ME FATHER has captured the curiosity and evoked enthusiasm of law enforcement professionals and a former Catholic priest. “Bless Me Father is a departure from Lou Saulino’s previous books about growing up with the love of sports. His fi rst crime story hits it out of the ballpark....a great read and defi nitely a page turner.” - John E. Sullivan Det. NYPD Ret. “I liked this book. It is a tough, smart and compassionate story. There are memorable characters. I know of no one who could have written a book like this. Lou has the real-life experience and the heart to give all of us the life changing thoughts.” - P. Olsinski, Teacher, Counselor, Student of People “Family, families---intertwined by: love and protection of each other, right or wrong; sports, sorrow and guilt, Bless Me Father entertains with a little sports history; but also is thought provoking---what, how do you honor faith, a memory and vows to ‘family’. An enjoyable weekend read.” - Cecile T. Woodward, Assistant Police Chief, Phoenix PD Ret.

The day breaks gloomy outside Saint Patrick's Cathedral where a solitary gunman waits for the services to end. Inside the majestic church 2,000 worshippers join New York Senator Frank Connolly and his wife, Caroline, being honored for her contributions to the Archdiocese. When the mass ends Connolly goes to confession before leaving the Cathedral - where he is met and assassinated by James Murphy. Except there is no James Murphy. His name and identity are false, his history beyond the past ten years as a janitor, untraceable, his motive never discovered. Tried and convicted, Murphy refuses to speak until, four years later - and two days before his scheduled execution - Murphy gives his last confession to the prison chaplin. The confession so startles the priest, bound by the Church's restrictions on revealing the words of the penitent - the Sacramental Seal - he races to Saint Patrick's to seek the advice of his former pupil, Dominic Cardinal Enicerlico, a street tough raised in Little Italy who has risen to one the highest and most powerful positions in the Church . Having extracted the information from the chaplin, the Cardinal risks excommunication by soliciting the aid of his best friend - retired police detective Dean Napolitano - to prevent the execution by discovering why Murphy committed murder. What Dean learns is a secret maintained through coercion, bribes and murder, committed by people who will stop at nothing to keep Murphy's words from being disclosed. Anyone aware of the secret faces death, Dominic and Dean not only face death but their own demons before the secret can be disclosed.

The inspiration for the hit London Weekend Television series of the same name, this is one confessional you’ll want to make a point of visiting Young Neil Boyd has just finished divinity school and has been newly ordained as a priest. His first post? St. Jude’s parish, a corner of London with a raucous congregation full of Irish immigrants. The flock is an odd pairing with the gentle Father Boyd, but he just might be both mad enough and tender enough to get through to them. Later adapted into a beloved British sitcom, Bless Me, Father is a humorous and sweet-natured look at Catholicism in the 1950s. Joining Boyd is the cantankerous, scheming, and brilliant Father Duddleswell, a man who is willing to do anything to make sure the Lord’s will be done, and Mrs. Pring, the sharp-tongued housekeeper who both coddles and cajoles her priestly family of two. If the church needs money, Duddleswell will place a bet to get it. If a Catholic wants to marry a Protestant . . . well, maybe he won’t go that far. Father Neil’s adventures with his parishioners are sure to delight readers of all creeds.
