The Redeemer of Sins

image

The family had no idea that little Luigi would grow up to be…a redeemer of sins committed by them.

Since childhood, little Luigi would notice the brutality of the men in his family. They were aristocrats and ruled whimsically. The women were prudish too.

As he grew up, he felt agonised to see the atrocities. One day, he saw his father beating a subject to death. He cried and begged God to give his family good sense. He resolved to do as much good as he could to absolve their crimes.

He rejected politics, ancestral riches, marriage in favour of priesthood. To this day, Rev Luigi is working tirelessly for mankind.

  1. I’m sure that many aristocratic families of the past were as brutal and heartless as Luigi’s, and you have painted the picture of them well. It’s good to know that Luigi didn’t follow in their footsteps and grew up to be a kind and just man who worked against such atrocities. Lovely story, Shivangi. 🙂
