Greatest Writer since Tolkien

Michael O'Brien is the greatest writer since Tolkien. His stories take you on a journey like a dream where you forget that you're in a dream. Only you feel the joy or sadness that is like real life reunion or heart break. The wisdom is experienced in his tales. This is subcreation that equals Homer or Tolkien. Fred New novel by Michael D. O'Brien The Island of the World The Island of the World is the story of a child born in 1933 into the turbulent world of the Balkans and tracing his life into the third millennium. The central character is Josip Lasta, the son of an impoverished school teacher in a remote village high in the mountains of the Bosnian interior. As the novel begins, World War II is underway and the entire region of Yugoslavia is torn by conflicting factions: German and Italian occupying armies, and the rebel forces that resist them — the fascist Ustashe, Serb nationalist Chetniks, and Communist Partisans. As events gather momentum, hell breaks loose, and the

Very Important Advice on the Pope and Fatima from Author Michael O'Brien

I thought I’d reprint this important advice from one of the great writers of our time. Dear Fred, Thank you for your most recent message, with the copies of the correspondence with Fr X.There is a lot of material in it, some of it factual, some of it conjecture, both intertwined with private revelation, ponderings and deep feelings. I share some of those feelings very much. I read Ezekiel 9 frequently. Like you I grieve over the state of the household of God. I should explain my take on the current state of things.

The Spirit of Antichrist which has been present from the beginning is growing power. We may well be (though I don't know for certain) on the brin

The Spiritual Life is a Love Affair

Father Edward Warren recently past on to his reward. His kindness and joy will be greatly missed by me and everyone who knew him. He was one of the true saints I've meet in my life. I did the interview below a few years back for the San Francisco Faith. In the interview I asked: "What was your happiest time in the priesthood?" He answered: "It isn't over yet. So, there might still be happier times. It might be when you are allowed to die and be with God." Father Warren please pray that I can be as happy as you are now. Fr. Warren was an assistant dean for 25 years at Santa Clara University. Since retiring in 1988, he does volunteer work at parishes throughout the Bay Area. I met Father Warren in the mid 1970s. He picked me up while I was hitchhiking in San Jose. This encounter with Father is one of the factors in God's mysterious providence that helped bring me back to the faith. Q. How and why did you decide to become a priest? A. You have not chosen me
