Thoughts of a lifelong priest upon opening his eyes after closing them for the last time.

So this is it?

A lifetime of kneeling and praying and fasting and flagellating to atone for my sins.

A lifetime of sins I could never hope to atone for and this is it?

It turns out the afterlife isn’t a paradise with golden streets and it’s not a solid inky blackness or a brilliant blinding white.


It turns out the afterlife is a four meter tall expanse of dull maroon with no one to speak to.

Funny how that works huh?
