Who is this man who unleashed winds obey,...

the rolling waves submit to his will?

Who is this prodigious man...

before whom the beasts martyred by rabies their malignancy throw off?

Who is this miraculous noble who heals the sick and restores life to the dead?

What do the words of this man contain...

that even Satan in his pride still obeys blindly?

Who was able to confound the evil of disbelievers...

with a word from his lips?

Who cleanses us from sins before saving the world...

from the intolerable load of the evils that beset it?

Ladies and gentlemen,...

lords and ladies,...

respectable families,...

distinguished ladies:...

here begins the true story of Pafnucio,...

Holy Pafnucio.

Mother, what are you ashamed of?

And you, why do you support her?

Uncover yourself.

Reveal all.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name,...

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven,...

Give us this day our daily bread give us this, forgive us our trespasses,...

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

They finally did it!

Motherfuckers, they have made loot of it all.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be your name,

come to us Thy kingdom, yourself, Lord, thy will be done on earth as in heaven,

The day our daily bread give us this day, forgive us our debts,

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us and keep us from all evil, Amen Jesus.

And you, poor man, are you dreaming? Are you dead?

Come to us...Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,...

Stranger, you're left on your own!

...Forgive us our trespasses, lead us not into temptation,...

but deliver us and keep us from evil, Amen.

Hell, open your doors!

Your children are coming.

Gentlemen, please do not forget these children.

Pafnucio, Pafnucio!

Holy Pafnucio!

I am Pafnucio, Holy Pafnucio.

Today, a day of bright sunshine...

I will be agreed on by the emissaries of the Lord,...

Today, my arm,...

shall be the arm of the Almighty.

Infinitely pure,...

His thoughts will be mine.

I won't ask anything...

because I possess the answer.

The grace and power...

gird my temples.

Today I am born to eternal life.

I am your will, Lord.

Your will and your anger.

Awake, Pafnucio, wake...

hurry, because the Lord needs you.

Stand up and depart immediately.

Open your ears and heed my words...

stop all work, and go out to the world,...

all eyes, all ears,...

like the eagle looming...

to look for the best woman of all...

because we already have the Child. When you find her, you will say...

you will be the mother of the Messiah!

Awake, Pafnucio, awaken. The Lord needs you.

Master, Lord, everything You created,...

blue sky, sand,...

the wind which carries my song.

I am love, against the demon...

I'll fight and find...

the mother of the Messiah.

I'll fulfill your will...

I am pleased with your very word.

So...enlighten me, Lord.

My loving voice, listen...

Pafnucio, open your eyes.

I will make you the king of all pleasures.

Just ask for it, my love.

The world is in my hands.

Wealth and power,...

nations and popes.

All I ask in return...

for the kingdom I offer you...

is that you produce the Messiah for me,...

to be born by me.

Don't despise me...

and think we would both produce Him...

thus sharing the joys and pleasures of the empire.

Take this deal...

and choose me...

as the mother of the Messiah.

Well, madam, tell me:...

what would you do with the child, if I were to entrust him to you?

Madam, the child is not for you.

Go back to frosty regions where you live.
