    She was a dauntless, defiant, and resolute foe of the cult and its evils. May she rest in peace and continue to inspire all who are committed to ending the evils of the cult.

    I am very sorry to hear about Maria Pia's passing. I tried to meet up with her in Italy, but she was in the hospital and did not want me to see her in such condition. That lady was very strong, and did not indulge in self pity. She was always optimistic and fully expected to recover by the end of the summer. I guess faith decided otherwise.RIP Maria Pia.

    Is there someone who knew Maria who can write about her story in Scientology and the way they went after her for that book she published (with the nuns was it??)
    Wasn't she OTVIII when she got out? Or was it OTV?
    She had such a sad story, from all the money they bilked out of her and then tried to get more out of her after her Mom passed.
    Weren't scilons camped out at her house too once?
    Her story needs to be told again.

    She wrote two very detailed depositions about the events. Debbie Cook was one of the people pressuring to give up money.

    yes I know.
    but her story needs to be told again. Not by her in a deposition that most won't see.

    I can find nothing in the Italian press confirming her death. Her Italian Wikipedia page has her as still alive.

    Ann O'Nymous can be trusted in this case. Sadly.

    What a life, from riches to zero thanks to a criminal cult, but fighting to the end.
    Good night, sweet princess.

    The lawsuit puts Scientology at risk of building a greater enmity with Catholics around the world.
    Maria Pia Gardini, a Catholic author who was formerly a Scientologist and has returned to the Catholic Church, has written 'The Courage To Speak Out - Stories of Ex-Scientologists'.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. (Catholic Online) – The Church of Scientology in Italy has announced it is initiating legal proceedings against the Daughters of St. Paul and Maria Pia Gardini, a Catholic author who was formerly a Scientologist and has returned to the Catholic Church.

    In 2007 the Daughters of St. Paul's publishing house, Edizioni Paoline (Paoline Publications), published Gardini’s first book, ” I miei anni in Scientology” (“My years in Scientology”). The first week of December, 2009 they released her second book, “Il coraggio di parlare - storie di fuoriusciti da Scientology” (“The Courage To Speak Out - Stories of Ex-Scientologists”).
