I know it's not easy.

But we still have to take the

easiest path.


I try not to think about it.

But we did not start the hand.

Who were you with tonight?

With my brother's daughter.

She's like my daughter.

Every time I think it'll be

the last time.

But as soon as it's over...


then it'll be even worse.

And everything is repeated.

What is the source of your fear?

Perhaps the fear of

that we'll be revealed.

When I call,

she turns her head.

So her looking at me... It can be said

that alone gives me the justification.

It all began when I saw

her legs so slim.

Before she was, for me

just a girl.

But when I saw her curves...

Earlier I didn't think about it.

She was a nobody.

But now...

Now it can not be a nobody.

If it serves as a

entertainment, uniteete said.

Then she will become a nobody.

Think about how much harm

will be caused.

And often you have sinned

with his niece?


Often. Very often.

Sometimes several times a day.

Shut up?

I've shocked you?

You have come to confess.

My answers have no significance.

Here we talk about your sins.

Do you find this

confession brings joy?

Can you recognize the greater sin?

And what would it be greater than this?

Do I know the size of sin?

Every sinner has its limits.

God - I assure you, condemns

every sin.

And you, my father,

evil does not scare you?

Satan has no power over you?

Satan has power over me

as much as he allows.

Everything is so simple?


Everything is so simple.


I Prevod. Tiger Ajdi

In December of 1595

the night of St.. Ambrose,

front gate of the monastery

near Madrid,

I found the baby.

The only thing that differentiated him

from other children was a mark,

in the shape of a hand on

his shoulder.

Some of the brothers, the truest,

considered it a sign of the devil.

But Miguel's brother, said that twas

God's gift to the child.

The brothers have decided that they'll

bringt it up themselves.

I named it Ambrose.

Under the influence of brothers,

Ambrose has already at an early...

...age accquired knowledge of science,

writing and drawing.

He has a lot of ambition.

With 18 years he entered into

the brotherhood.

To all brothers, Ambrose became

an example of diligence and faith.

Everyone respects him,

but, they are envious of him.

His deep faith, his talent to

convince people of the confessional;

became the basis of his


We're late.

Jel's true that he called

God's man?

Yes. He sins so I resolved, as all

the other monks in the region together.

Father, all waiting in the church

only him.

Do not worry, I will soon to come.

Dear Sir,

obraam you with a request

give me strength

to continue the mission,

granted by me.

Obraam you on behalf of

Virgin Mary,

Mother of God.

If God sees that I do not want your

direct the soul into the right side,

Let me take away my voice

and my life.

And please,

When I talk,

Bless my tongue,

and hearts of those who listen to me,

to my language spoken to all hearts,

and lit the flame of truth in them.

Virgin Mary,

Almighty Queen,

Hear my voice,

give strength to my words,

and give power to my voice.

No such sin

for which no one should

pray for forgiveness.

Repentance is the only way of sinners.

One movement and pirouette.

Hits on the hawthorn tree.

Hold on one of the twigs.

This is your life, twigs,

he asks of you only words.

Evil is far, distant,

distant, big stumbling block,

and more not be able to

hold the twigs.

Yes, he is quick and cunning.

Yes, he is dangerous.

But only for those

with weaknesses,

given place in his heart.
