Camp Hope


...devotion to you,

Blessed Mother,

for the repose of the soul of my father,

Romeo Garbellotto.

May he be spared

the tortures of purgatory

and be whisked to the bosom

of our Lord Jesus Christ.

- Amen.

- Amen.

Praise God.

Are you packed,

young man?

I have your


Yeah, I'm almost done.

Is Grandpa

in heaven now?

I hope so, sweetie.

But every day

we have to offer up

our deeds

and our prayers

so that he might leave purgatory

and enter heaven.

What's purgatory?

Tell your sister

what purgatory is.

Purgatory is a state

in which those suffer for a time

who have died guilty

of venial sins

or who have not satisfied

punishment for their sins.

I have no idea

what he just said.

Thank you, sweetheart.

I don't either.

Purgatory is like jail.

It's a place

of suffering we go

so that our soul

may be purified

so that we are ready

to meet God.

Do I have to go

to purgatory?

Everybody goes

to purgatory.

Shh, no. No, sweetie.

You're a good girl.

Just be God's girl.

The world out there...

they want to take that away from you...

your right

to go to heaven.

That's why you need to get

on your knees every day and thank...

Tommy's going

to hell.

Rose, bite your tongue.

That's not nice.

He is. When he's

babysitting me

and you're

at your meetings,

he makes me go to bed early

so he can talk to his girlfriend.

And the community says

it's a sin to have a girlfriend.

- He does, I swear.

- Shut up, Rose.

Do not tell your sister

to shut up.

And no swearing,

young lady.

It's not a sin

to have a girlfriend.

It's just your brother's

too young.

When do I get to go to camp?

When you're older.

But now you get

to go to bed.

I have to pack.

I hate you.


Father Phineas McAllister

to see Daniel Jacobs.

Yes, Father.

Father McAllister

is here

for his appointment

with Daniel Jacobs.

Hello, Daniel.

How have you been

this week?

Have you been eating?


Son, you can't hide

from me forever.

It's over

six months now.


Are you hearing me

at all, son?

I'm going away

for the next two weeks.

I'll be at camp

with the children

from the community.

Daniel, may I see that?

May I see your book?


Daniel, listen to me.

Listen now.

There is hope.

I have offered it to you

time and again.

Now just take the hand

that is in front of you.


I'm damned, Father.

And you...

you, my priest,

have failed me,

just like you have

always failed.


Yes, you have failed.

You have failed.

You have failed.

You will leave this earth

having left no mark,

just scars.

You failed.

You failed yourself

and you betrayed

your sister

because you do not

trust in God.

Are you happy

with your life, Father?

Are you... are you proud

of all that you've accomplished?

I'm a servant

of the Lord.

Nothing happens on this earth

without God's permission?

- Nothing.

- Huh.

Well, then I hate God...

as should you.

Daniel, now...

No, I was reading

the Old Testament.

I was reading

the Book of Tobias...

the Book of Tobias.

The demon Asmodeus killed seven men

before God intervened

and sent Raphael the Archangel

to bind Asmodeus...

seven men.

That's God's will.

There's no...

there no hope.

There's only God's will.

Daniel, please.

Your time is up.

And you will not see me

again after today.

That's God's will.


that's God's will.

Goodbye, Father.


Did you know about this, folks?

These Islamo-Fascist


are using children

as decoys

to get past

the military checkpoints

and detonate

their car bombs.

These are the kind of animals
