Good morning, everyone,
I’m stepping aside today so that I can introduce you to the latest novel from the King of Mystery/Suspense/Thrillers Jack (Spywriter) King.
I had the privilege recently of reviewing his latest novel Agents of Change .
The review says it all:
The Second Vatican Council (Vatican II) was the most significant single event in modern day Catholicism. It was concluded that the church needed to demonstrate more concern for the conditions of the modern world while still holding close to its sacred traditions. The council fostered cooperation and understanding of other Christian churches and their secular mores.
Change within an organization of its size does not come easily and fifty years after the historic council, while some feel a sense of exhilaration about the modicum of changes made to-date, there are many others who are vocal about what they see as a betrayal of the spirit of change promised by Vatican II.
It is not surprising, then, to find the Jesuit order in the thick of this controversy. Known at times to be overly liberal and diverging from official Church teaching and papal directives, the Jesuits are split when it comes to the role they should be playing in today’s society.
As Agents of Change in the USA, a sector of the Jesuit Order, corrupted by anti-papal dissenters, is intent on changing the political structure, banking, military-industrial complex and educational systems. Their motto, Ad maiorem Dei gloriam (To the greater glory of God) has a special meaning to them; the end justifies the means.
Obedience to the Order and to the Pope no longer has any meaning to these agents of change as the Church’s teachings on abortion, birth control, masturbation, pre-marital sex, homosexuality women as deacons, secular issues involving globalization, consumerism and control of economies by capitalist/banksters are at the forefront of their rebellion. Anyone standing in their way is fair game for retaliation; violence and murder not excepted.
King’s timing, in the light of the first Jesuit Pope being elected, is nothing less than astounding.
His novels usually leave the reader asking, “Can this happen here?” With Agents of Change the question becomes, “Is this already happening?”, “Can the new Vatican leadership rein in these agents of change?” and “Will they once again subordinate themselves to Papal authority?”
Don’t miss Agents of Change. It is a must read for Jack King fans and for anyone desiring to have a “behind the scenes” glimpse of how secret groups function.
