Chapter 25



Cameron looked to Marie for clarification.  “The material world is a lie of the evil Rex Mundi,” said Marie.

Lady Mani shifted her eyes to Nicole’s, “And Christ said, ‘The world cannot hate you, but me it hates because I bear witness of it that its works are evil.  I have seen all the works that are done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and vexation of Spirit.  Hate the solid garment of flesh.’  By these witnesses, you must keep the commandments of God and hate the world, and if you continue well to the end, we have the hope that your soul shall have life eternal.”

“I have this will,” said Nicole, “pray to God for me that he will give me his power.”

Marie took her cue and with Ananda and Lady Yada said, “Parcite Nobis.  Good Christian we pray you by the love of God that you grant this blessing, which God had given you, to our friend here present.”

Nicole then said, “Parcite Nobis.  For all the sins, I have ever done in thought, word, and deed.  I ask pardon of God, of the Church, and of you all.”

Then Marie, Ananda, Lady Yada, and Lady Mani replied, “By God and by us and by the Church, may your sins be forgiven and we pray God to forgive you them.  Adoremus, Patrem, et Filium et Spiritum Sanctam.”

Ananda walked over beside Nicole, Lady Yada, and Lady Mani.  The four once again recited the Lord’s Prayer followed by a passage from the Bible.  Cameron knew the verse at once as he had heard the lines so many times in his youth.  The passage was from the book of John, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
