Stealing Lives: Systemic Child Abuse and the Smokescreens of Organised Vatican Criminality (Paperback)
In this powerful book Rafael Viola shares his story of surviving five Catholic institutions, all of which subjected him to terror, torture, abuse, and other organised criminality. Along with Countess Sigrid von Galen, being targeted by the Vatican as secret granddaughter of the Lion of M nster, Cardinal Clemens August Graf von Galen, and as a trailblazing whistleblower on the systemic child abuse and wider organised Vatican criminality they connect historical and interdisciplinary dots on the worldmap to reveal the big picture and ongoing cover ups behind the Vatican's smokescreens.
This book stands for the experiences of many survivors and whistleblowers and encourages readers to share their own stories but also serves as a tool and reference book for those who want to catch up on facts, international investigations, and analysis. It includes a chapter of satire featuring the fictitious Star Chamber trial of the Popes, led by Mary Magdalene as the Prosecutor against the Churches. If you want to learn about the truth behind the Vatican's actions this book is a must-read.
