Da vinci code
It will take a good couple of beers at the corner pub to rid me of the taste of bile stuck in the back of my throat. Why did I have to hear his confession? He was not from the parish, had never set foot in my church, never a sign or a donation, nothing, nada. He had arrived late, his face obscured by a large hat and a black scarf. He had waited, as he sat in a recess behind the last pillar, near the statue of Marie Madeleine, his hands clasped together and his head lowered.
He had walked towards the main confessional with a slow pace and hunched over. I was getting ready to close the church after a long day. Three weddings and one funeral. I took my stole and walked over to him.
Looking through the grid, I could make out an old man with white hair. He was not from around here, his accent betrayed a germanic descent. He spoke in a sad, inflected and clipped voice.
What he confided in me left me stunned, and that’s when I recognized him. The pope himself, there, in my church, had just announced to me that God did not exist. The dark shadow of the white bird was cast on the wall of the church.
