-Sister, we both know why the brothers are here. What I need to know is if they're aware of why they're here.
--This house is not a spa. No. It isn't a retreat either. It's a center for prayer and penance. It's a place of repentance.
-Look. God also created homosexuals. He created them. He's proud of them. Proud of who they are. I am celibate, for example. I'm celibate. Of my own free will, I decided not to have a wife, children.
--So you're celibate because you haven't been with a woman...but you have been with men?
-You are in a privileged place. God is here, Father. Look around you. Nature, the sea.
--God is not here, Father. This is a jail. With fucking criminals!
Forgiveness, oh, God. Forgiveness in your presence. Forgiveness and clemency. Forgiveness and mercy ... Lamb of God. May peace be upon you, Brothers.You take away the sins of the world. Have mercy on us ... Grant us peace ...
You can just see he's a guilty rich guy. But guilty of what? Besides, if there were no more poor people, there would be no more saints... and that would be a terrible thing. There have always been poor people. They want to change the church. Over 2,000 years old and it's still here
and I like it the way it is. There is only one church of God. Amen.
-Has it ever occurred to you that you're a criminal? What else do you do in this house?
--I count the slices of bologna. I make sure nobody puts too much butter on their bread. I count the tablespoons of sugar. I count the bulbs that burn out. I count the needles so they don't get lost. I keep track of how long they spend in the bathroom. Long showers are forbidden.
-But you are no longer a nun officially.
--So I called an uncle who had some connections... and told him I had to pay for my sins... and needed to do my penance. So he called me, asked me if I liked the sea... and told me I would be a jail keeper.
Sister: Welcome. This house is very important to the church. A shelter, a house of prayer.
We wake up in the morning and pray. Then we have breakfast. Then there's some free time for personal matters. We hold mass at noon. The fathers take turns officiating, the same with confession. If you are in need of confession, just let me know. I will speak with the fathers and one of them will help you. We have lunch at 1:00. After that, we sing. Then we have some free time,
and at 8:30, we have dinner. We say the rosary at 8:00 and have dinner at 8:30. You cannot go into town... unless it's between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. or 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. If you want to go out during those hours, you can, but only alone. You can't be on the streets together. It's absolutely forbidden to communicate with any person outside of this house. Also forbidden is any activity
involving self-flagellation... or self-pleasuring. You are not allowed to handle money or cell phones.
