"Running For My Life - Captive of the RUF Rebels of Sierra Leone is a telling account of the dehumanizing effect of war on combatants. Father Mosele has been a witness to both the degradation of the (Sierra Leone) rebels' humanity and the quiet dignity of his civilian friends. It is one more demonstration that evil can be overcome by good." --George Biguzzi, SX, Bishop of Makeni, Sierra Leone, West Africa
"Evil is never defeated by evil. Peace is a good to be promoted by good." --Pope John Paul II
"Father Mosele has given us a powerful testimony to courage and faith and a witness to the stirring of the Holy Spirit in today's world. You won't forget his story!" --Marshall J. Cook, Professor, University of Wisconsin
