The Story“Ye who enter, abandon all hope.” - Dante Alighieri, Inferno
Father O‟ Brien A life long servant to the Catholic Church, has just „left‟ the real world an hour ago (death by peanut allergy – a very disappointing end!) Expecting angels, choirs and the works, Father O‟ Brien stirs from unconsciousness only to find himself surrounded by a vast, vacant wasteland with nothing but the clothes he died in...oh and his collar! Discovering a business card tucked into his pocket he quickly retrieves it and begins to read the following:
Sick with excitement, he turns the card ready, to receive his „revelation‟ and sees…this: A blank card with nothing but a tiny symbol on it and nothing…no revelation, no adoring angels, nothing except in tiny fine print at the bottom of the card he reads: “If you are not satisfied with your afterlife revelation, Please seek Human Resources located in the Vatican HQ” He knew the symbol was familiar – The Vatican City coat of arms!!! OK…Now he‟s pissed and not the enjoyable kind!
