The Catholic Men's Podcast

#12 The Hunted Priest

Fr. John Gerard in Protestant England

3 years ago

This week's podcast is totally different.

It's the performance of a play that I wrote based on the book, "The Autobiography of a Hunted Priest." It's about Fr. John Gerard, S.J. who did apostolate in England during their persecution of Catholics in 1588.

Some parts, like his interrogation scene, are word for word what Fr. Gerrard wrote in his autobiography. Other parts are a little dramatized but still true.

However, the pirate narrator never existed. But of course, I needed him to relate the story.

If you don't believe what's in this play, you can purchase the book and read it for yourself here: https://www.amazon.com/Autobiography-Hunted-Priest-John-Gerard/dp/1586174509/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1526253612&sr=8-1&keywords=autobiography+of+a+hunted+priest

Special thanks to my friends who helped me perform this one: ya'll are awesome actors.
