            Focusing on two childhood friends in Newcastle, this powerful and heartbreaking story exposes how the cover-up of child abuse in the Catholic Church in Australia extended from parish priests to every echelon of the organisation, all the way to the Pope. Glen Walsh and Steven Alwa...rd were childhood friends in their tight-knit working class community in Shortland, on the outskirts of Newcastle. Both proud altar boys at the local Catholic church, they went on to attend the city's Catholic boys' highs schools: Glen to Marist Brothers and Steven to St Pius X. Both did well - Steven became a journalist; and Glen a priest. But when Glen discovered another priest was sexually abusing boys, he reported the offending to the police, breaking Canon Law and his vows to the Catholic 'brotherhood' in the process. That decision eventually led to his death, just weeks before a key trial against the highest cleric to ever be charged with covering up child abuse. Two months later Glen's childhood friend Steven was also dead, only days before he was to marry the love of his life. So how were the deaths of both men linked to the deaths of at least 60 men in the blighted Maitland-Newcastle Catholic diocese? By five-time Walkley award-winning investigative reporter Suzanne Smith, The Altar Boys is the powerful expose of how the cover-up of child abuse in the Catholic Church in Australia extended from parish priests to every echelon of the organisation, all the way to the Pope. Focusing on two childhood friends who eventually took their own lives, this gripping and explosive story is backed by secret documents, diary notes and witness accounts, and details a deliberate church strategy using psychological warfare against witnesses in key trials involving paedophile priests.

            This book looks at the influence a lifetime of patients has had on retired consultant psychiatrist Dr Tim Cantopher. It explores the profound, often moving, inter-relation between `healer' and `wounded', and examines how the two may overlap sometimes more than might be expected.

            Out of the Blue, Out: A guide through the journey of grief and healing (Paperback)

            The journey of grief after the sudden loss of a loved one can be terribly hard. So painful. Mary Redmayne shares a path through grief. Observations she made during a walk in the New Zealand bush inspired analogies of the journey of grief. Both of these are supported by her evoc...ative photographs, prayers, and poetry, along with Bible quotes, and suggested songs and music which come with a playlist accessible online. Each double page can stand alone as a meditation for a particular need, or it can be read as a whole. The second half offers inspiration for healing through a wide range of sensory and meditative experiences, and uplifting photographs. While everyone's grief is so individual, this book lets you know you are not alone.
