You're dead and you don't know it.

The people want it; God wants it.

- Praised be Jesus Christ.

- Now and for ever.

We all have so many fears.

They've lost their self-control.

As if they could see hell.

Hell is nearby. It's underground.

We're inside it.

I'm here to lead you there by the hand.

This time you'll all do the spiritual

exercises properly.

Just as I say.


Why didn't you wake me

when you got back?

You looked so peaceful.

I want to pray with you.

The Ignatian prayer...

with deep breaths.

Our... Father...

who art... in heaven...

hallowed be... thy...

name... Thy...

kingdom... come...

Thy... will... be done...

on Earth... as in heaven.

- Who is it?

- It's me, Voltrano.

- Voltrano... hide.

- I must speak to you.

Open up - it's Voltrano.

with all URU's money.

- Voltrano, I don't need...

- All together...

We must sweep away the filth

lurking in our Party.

- There's a woman...

- That's not true.

- I don't need you, Voltrano.

- But I need you.

- I don't need you.

- You do...

I have all you need to achieve

your goal.

- In the name of our long friendship.

- I won't be a scapegoat.

I'm an archive.

I have all the proof.

- Proof of what?

- Everything.

- Everything? No, thank you.

- It's a present.

Thank you, Voltrano.

Thank you, thank you.

Have a good rest.

Prepare for prayer.

- The werewolf is...

- Yes, yes.

Good morning, gentlemen.
