Books By Pamela King
This is the story as it was told to the author by Angelo Ferrari, drummer, singer and founder of the Italian Beat rock group Angel and the Brains.
After recounting how the band was formed and its music ambitions, it continues to tell the true story about the aftermath of La Messa Dei Giovani (La Messa).
La Messa was conceived to fulfil the desires of the Vatican II to make the Catholic Church more appealing to young people but, because of resulting bitter and vicious arguments within the church and the media, the Vatican took a course of action that was inconsiderate, hurtful and cold hearted.
The story describes how these young musicians, who had responded to an invitation from the church to perform the first rock mass in Rome had their fledgling careers destroyed by the Vatican.
The reader will discover that many articles written in recent years are wrong in their descriptions of what happened following La Messa and falsely acclaim the event as being a successful innovation of the Catholic Church at the time.
Berenice became fascinated by Dingoes at a very young age. Her fascination became almost an obsession and as a young woman she spent many hours researching and studying the Dingo and she devoted over 40 years of her life as the Dingo’s advocate. Committed to observing, studying, breeding and being at one with the Dingo’s spirit she became a recognised authority on Australia’s Native Dog and rewrote what people believed about the Dingo.
She became known worldwide simply as the “Dingo Lady” and founded the Australian Native Dog Training Society (ANDTS), later known as the Australian Native Dog Conservation Society (ANDCS).
As the Dingo’s champion she took every opportunity to promote understanding of the Dingo, fight for its recognition and acceptance as the native dog of Australia and to educate the public on the truth about its characteristics and behaviour.
The stories in this books about three of her Dingoes, Dora, Napoleon and Snowgoose, demonstrate the love she had and dedication to a falsely maligned Australian native animal.
La Messa è stata concepita per soddisfare i desideri del Concilio Vaticano II di rendere la Chiesa cattolica più attraente per i giovani, ma, a causa delle conseguenti aspre e viziose polemiche all'interno della Chiesa e tra i media, il Vaticano prese un corso di azione che era sconsiderato, dannoso e gelido di cuore.
La storia descrive come questi giovani musicisti, che avevano risposto a un invito dalla Chiesa per eseguire la prima messa beat a Roma, avevano la loro carriera, che era alle prime armi, distrutta dal Vaticano.
Il lettore scoprirà che molti articoli scritti in questi ultimi anni sono errati nelle loro descrizioni di ciò che accadde subito dopo La Messa e falsamente acclamano l'evento come una innovazione di successo della Chiesa cattolica di allora.
