Product Description

ruth is stranger than fiction. The Autobiography of a Hunted Priest tells the remarkable story of Fr. Gerard, a Jesuit priest in Elizabethan England during a time when to be a Catholic priest in England was treason. Smuggled into England after his ordination, he disguised himself as a country gentleman and traveled about the country saying Mass and ministering to the faithful in secret. He eventually was caught and taken to the infamous Tower of London where he was brutally tortured. The stirring account of his escape, by means of a rope thrown across the moat, is a daring and magnificent climax to a true story and tells of an era when Catholics in England were denied their freedom to worship and endured vicious persecution and often martyrdom.
