Saviour Day
28 December 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

So there was a reason why Father Jude was chosen to search for the false messiah's. The hierarchy wanted to elevate one of them as the true returning one in these testing times. It seems they have lost faith but not Father Jude. He has made love with Sister Celine, in love with her, both contemplate leaving the church but his faith is still strong. However he is in danger now as he knows too much.

Operation Saviour has been initiated with a missile launched to blow it off course but it has failed but the politicians lie to the public and tell them it was a success. The rest of the world celebrate.

Ariel and Jamie meet in a Slough car park with Ariel taking any opportunity to humiliate Jamie and of course wanting Layla to come back with him because of his demented love for her. However I find this part of the story to be the most dull.

The most heartbreaking moment Father Jude awaits Sister Celine, but it is a tragic reunion.
