Thank you for your reviews





This is such an excellent written book, that keeps you literally on edge till the very end. I read it through... could not put it down! WOW. - Mariette

When Father Ignatius and Father Donald are called away to a Conference at a monastery little did they know they would end up as suspects in the murder of a monk. Murder in the Monastery is a murder mystery with a unique twist. Even though the story is a who-dun-it there are several passages throughout the story that Father Ignatius speaks to others about  forgiveness. I intend on reading more by this new author and I recommend this inspirational story to others.- Romaine Heart

Victor using his created character, Father Ignatius, has completed a very good example, in short stories, of a man of God interested in people. I smiled as I read the stories. It could have been the small office or churches my dad pastored. Victor's insight into the problems encountered by any ministers of the Gospel, yeah, including priests. As I read I actually remember several short stories that were nearly word for word of problems and the Priest's answers were as if my dad had advised. I recommend this book very highly. As I write this review I am smiling remembering my dad the pastor of a very fundamental Protestant church. He would have gotten a kick out of me comparing him to an educated Catholic Priest; my dad was self taught, very successful, from a very poor family and a formal education of the 3rd grade. He had to quit school to be a full time farm hand. Victor's Father Ignatius was also from a poor family. Anyway, no matter your situation, you will enjoy Father Ignatius. - Kindle Customer

If you haven't already met the lovable and caring Fr. Ignatius, here is your chance! Take Care of My Sheep is a collection of thoughtful and inspiring stories by author Victor S E Moubarak, stories that star Fr. Ignatius and the varied experiences he encounters that cry out for his Christian knowledge and gentle demeanour. When I'm feeling down, I pick this book up and immerse myself in one of the stories - they never grow old! ~Martha Orlando, author of A Trip, a Tryst and a Terror, Children in the Garden, The Moment of Truth, Revenge!, Redemption, and Revelation, all available on Amazon 

Victor Moubarak has provided us with a collection of short stories that are simply heartwarming. I enthusiastically second Martha Orlando's positive review!- Chris Lally

This is a very well written 'Who Done It'. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, and many original lines. The one I remember most was concerning a conversation in which the old saying "If someone yells in a vacuum can it be heard?" You have to appreciate the wit of the author and also the surprise ending. It is a very enjoyable read and I definitely would recommend the author. Yep, tis a fun read. - Jack Darnell

 A man of many talents, Victor, entertains us with a "Who Don It" in this offering! What I liked MOST about the story---the reminder to not jump to judgement based upon circumstances! Victor tells a story with a touch of tongue in cheek--always--and adds a lesson in morality and faith while weaving an intriguing tale of murder and mystery. The faithful stand by Father Ignatius, but most fall away and even call for heads to roll--reminiscent of the last days of Christ. A talented writer, Victor, has once again used the infamous Father Ignatius to keep us on the edge of our seats--while at the same time gently reminding us of important life lessons. A Great Read!- LJC

I so much love this book! I am still reading it, have not finished, but love how the story combines adventure, faith, and suspense. The author is very talented and has crafted a wonderful story. My highest recommendation!- Patrick Kearns

I have read Victor Moubarak and am impressed with his ability to teach me about the Catholic Church and it's stands and beliefs. He does not shy away from the controversial and that is important for me. I will probably never be a Roman Catholic Church 'follower' but it is refreshing to read, and learn things I did not know. One of my best friends converted from Baptist to become a Catholic, we have had many discussions. Now after following Victor and reading his books I feel more informed. I recommend the book as a very good fiction novel, very entertaining, you cannot go wrong giving this book a read. - Kindle Customer

I really enjoyed following my favorite priest, Fr. Ignatius, as he navigates his way through a tough challenge. Celibacy and the priesthood are tough subjects, yet the author addresses it with such grace and insight. Priests are people, just like any of us, with the same feelings and inner conflicts. This book just made me love and respect the character of Fr. Ignatius more than I already did...which was a lot!- Ceil Ryan

Of all Moubarak's Father Ignatius stories, this one most definitely is his most poignant. Torn between his priestly vows and the reemergence of a former love, Fr. Ignatius is faced with a deep and life-changing decision. You do not want to miss this one! - Martha Orlando, author of A Trip, a Tryst and a Terror, Children in the Garden, Moment of Truth, Revenge!, Redemption, and Revelation, all available on Amazon 

Everything you ever wanted to know ... but were embarrassed to ask. :)
As ever, the author's narrative flows easily, and provides answers to 'those' niggling questions. Thank you! - Myra G.

Especially nowadays where so many people tend to stray away from God, this is a very good book for bringing them back into the fold.- Mariette

Thank you everyone who has reviewed my books on AMAZON. Too many to mention here. I am really humbled and grateful for your kindness. God bless you.





  1. ...ah, to be able to write.

  2. Dearest Victor,
    It must be kindred spirits as I got up early to leave you a review on the book I finished last evening...
    'Take Care Of My Sheep'

    The BEST SOUL FOOD around...

    Finished this book last evening, would have loved to have had time on hands for completing it without any 'break'.
    This is excellent SOUL FOOD for going back to the core of our religion of over 2,000 years.
    It often made me feel a child again, going back in thoughts to some very warm and caring Priests we had and who did stop by for a family visit.
    The BEST times for a solid foundation and for balancing body and soul.
    People nowadays forget and rather seek counseling...
    Do yourself a favor and read this excellent book!
    Mariette's Back to Basics

    1. Thank you so much Mariette. What a very kind and generous review you just left on AMAZON about "Take Care Of My Sheep". So lovely.

      Yes, in olden times, I remember priests used to visit people at home and were part of the family. I remember when sometimes they came to our home for Sunday lunch.

      Today they are all too busy with Ecumenical Meetings, Parish Meetings, Bishop's Meetings and all that nonsense, whilst the parishioners come second, it seems.

      Thank you, Mariette. God bless always.

  3. Thank you for this gentle reminder, how much readers' reviews mean to authors. I need to step up my game!
    Meanwhile, please keep writing!

    1. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement, Mevely. Much appreciated.

      Hopefully, a new book on the same lines as "Man and God" to be available in the New Year.

      God bless you and yours.

  4. You deserve all the comments, accolades, and approval of your books. I agree with your created character, Father Ignatius, as I read your books. You 'done good' with that character creation.
    Sherry & jack thinking of you at this Christmas time.

    1. Many thanx for your continued support and encouragement, Jack and Sherry. Yes, Father Ignatius is real to me; he is after all the description of a number of priests I have known over the year. Both in character and kindness. Some of the situations in my books are also based on true events.

      God bless you both and family now and always.

  5. Great and inspiring writing should be applauded. Wonderful work you have done, Victor.

    1. Thank you so much, Bill. Much appreciated.

      God bless you.

  6. We should be the ones thanking you, Victor, for your amazing stories! Blessings!

    1. Thank you so much Martha for your kind reviews and support. They encourage me to keep on writing.

      God bless you and your family always.

  7. I read Murder in the Monastery a while back and thoroughly enjoyed it!!

    1. Thank you, Happyone. It is the last in the series of Father Ignatius novels ... for now! I might write another one.

      God bless you and family.

  8. Wonderful to see Victor, well done.

    All the best Jan

  9. I don't do reviews. I always get there after everyone else has said everything I might want to say.

  10. You are using your talents well!

  11. Dearest Victor,
    Well, since you cannot just leave a review, I've edited my previous review to add to Murder In The Monastery:
    Husband P.J.C. Vedder also LOVED reading this. Very well written he said!

    1. Thank you and Pieter so much, Mariette. I am so lucky to have found you on the Internet as such good supporters of my writings. I am honoured.

      God bless you both always.



God bless you.
