to reach us. It was hidden, smuggled,

ransomed and finally put into my hand

by a Dutch trader. Who had other news

as well.

RODRIGUES:

That he is alive?

VALIGNANO:

That he apostatized.

The young priests are stunned.

VALIGNANO:

GARUPE:

That’s not possible. (Father Ferreira

risked his life to spread our faith

RODRIGUES:

If it is true, Father, what would it

mean for the Society? For our faith?

For all of Catholic Europe?

Father Ferreira.

VALIGNANO:

I cannot allow that.

GARUPE:

mission.

VALIGNANO:

Your mission was to find word of

Ferreira. You have found it. Take this
