Pope Francis and the “Right of the Environment” Speech – a “Holy Fool” speaking Deep Wisdom

Pope Francis today is telling the nations of the world that there exists a “Right of the Environment” to the benefit of all earth’s inhabitants, not to be abridged by those merely seeking “selfish” gain.

In Holy Fool, Holy Father, first published nearly a year ago, my fictional pope Viktor IV also calls for an international and interreligious conference to address the need for what one Greek Orthodox scholar calls “a new asceticism.” It is gratifying to realize that, certainly in this case, truth is stranger and more wonderful than fiction – even if it’s my own fiction!

Check out Holy Fool, Holy Father, about to come under a new print publisher, and now available on Kindle as proudly enabled by Carpenter’s Son Publishing, an imprint of Christian Book Services, LLC.Final_HolyFool_covers_CarpentersSon

After a successful first edition run with WC Publishing, the novel is coming under the publishing auspices of the Carpenter’s Son Publishing imprint of Christian Book Services, LLC. It will be available to retailers in trade paperback through STL and Ingram, and to consumers via the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble, and Apple eBooks, ¬†as well as wherever fine books are sold.
