August 19, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Cardinal George Pell, who spent 404 days in solitary confinement for charges of child sexual abuse of which he was exonerated this year, will be publishing his prison journal in book form in early 2021.

Ignatius Press has announced that Pell’s work, titled Prison Journal: The Cardinal Makes His Appeal will be available in paperback and e-book forms.

In a press release, Father Joseph Fessio, S.J., editor of Ignatius Press, said Prison Journal is “extraordinary” and “is going to be a spiritual classic.”

“This is not just about Cardinal Pell. His victory was not just a victory for one man. It was a victory for the Church. And not just the Church in Australia. It revealed to all the world just how far the Church’s enemies will go and how deceitful they will be to discredit her,” said Fessio about the book. 

“PRISON JOURNAL contains his reflections not only on the pain of being falsely accused and unjustly imprisoned, but also on the meaning of suffering in the life of a Christian and the divine command to forgive one’s enemies.”

While Ignatius Press will be publishing the first volume of the book series next year, digital installments of the book are now available for a fee of five dollars a month at One can ,,,,,,,
