Father Paul Wesley saw his epiphany and embraced it. The demons and debauchery that had blackened his soul and threatened to be his damnation had been dispatched. A life without meaning now had a purpose. But for every ounce of good that thrives; there is some evil to be found.
The penance Father Wesley is asked to pay for his sins of the past comes at a price. The allegiance and dedication he has sworn to the Church and the men who run it comes into play. He is recruited to ease the conscience of one while playing nursemaid to the greed of another.
The edict rendered, Father Wesley returns to the parish of his youth. But, unbeknownst to his superiors, he does so as his own man, not as the devious manipulator he has been asked to portray.
