People want to flee from their lives of rubble and dust. It seems grotesque to talk about such things because most people live lonely and pathetic lives that are filled with meaningless rituals that drain their lives of joy and hope. It was like actual people falling to their deaths after a stock market crash or some horrible event that left them without any rules to guide their lives. It gets dangerous when people don’t have boundaries. It gets dangerous when people don’t know what to believe in anymore.

Blood poured from several openings. There is always too much blood and gore. The physical becomes more and more synthetic over time. The sights and sounds of all the accessories put the poor little fool into fits. There also is the madness of the vagaries of life that eat away at him little by little. Kicker can’t remember the code to unlock the door. Everything hasbeen locked up too tight for way too long. With every step he moved further down the black corridor of despair. He was in darkness within darkness within darkness. Each and every single little bit of darkness that permeated his inner being was swallowed up by an even larger darkness. He reached a point where he realized that he was becoming the darkness. At times, he wondered if he was always the darkness, that there never was any hope for his soul from the beginning.

The myrrh is collected from a sarcophagus which is located in the basilica vault and could be obtained in the shop nearby. The liquid gradually seeps out of the tomb, but it is unclear whether it originates from the body within the tomb, or from the marble itself; since the town of Bari is a harbor, and the tomb is below sea level, there are several natural explanations for the manna fluid, including the transfer of seawater to the tomb by capillary action.

If ... one who is of age has renounced his impending torment... then let him be washed and anointed with Chrism according to the accepted Rite. And when the Liturgy is celebrated, let him be counted worthy of the Holy Things, occupying himself in Church and the Liturgy, as them that are baptized ...[11]
