News from Nowhere

goatSufficit quod honesti nihil agant, ut malum vincat.

My Dear Wormwood,

You have excelled yourself! How did you do it? I know Francis is a clumsy thinker at the best of times:  but to get him to deny the existence of Hell and Eternal Punishment goes beyond what we could have hoped for in our wildest dreams.

And at Easter!

Sin with impunity is the sweet gospel of Our Father who is Below (and quite the opposite of the ‘love’ and ‘mercy’ promised by the Enemy). To have made the successor of Peter its apostle is an unparalleled achievement. It is the crown of your career. You can expect rich rewards. All the kingdoms of the earth are yours for the asking!

Your delirious Uncle,

Screwtape.
