While historical wrongs committed by the “European Churches” may be forgiven as they fade into the annals of time, it was disheartening history. Panettiere courageously delves beyond the sacraments, the physical structures, and the impenetrable walls of the established Catholic Church.

These Thy Gifts is a historical fiction novel by Vincent Panettiere published in 2023. It tells the story of Monsignor Steven Trimboli, a priest who struggles with his faith and his love for Rosalie LaMarca, the widow of a mobster. The novel spans 50 years, from 1956 to 2006, and covers various events and issues that affect the Catholic Church and the world, such as the Vietnam War, the sexual abuse scandals, the mafia, and the role of women in society.
