Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 92

…The Nun and the Spy…

conspiracy

Willard Libby’s aunt is as gracious a human being as any out there, which means sheTolentine will not turn away even the lowest of the low. Billed as Bernard Spencer, communications specialist for The Vatican, Spencer/Daniels/Cephus is welcomed into the monastery like the Prodigal Son. Sister Mary has a pre-loaded battery of questions for such a treasured papal insider, though she is troubled by the news of Ernesto Pacelli’s demise.

Spencer/Cephus/Daniels is most obliging in detailing life within the gates of Vatican City.

“Is the Holy Father as brilliant as his Humani Generis indicates? I recall how Mr. Pacelli so lovingly gave me a copy and how it applies so well to current world opinion.” She is more than serious. “The Church has been under attack in recent years, mostly from the outside-in. The reliance on science is a cancer to the Word.”

“And yet you welcomed two prominent scientists into the walls of Tolentine, both of whom were responsible for the A-bomb.”

“I must say that Mr. Fermi surprised me in a pleasant sort of way… and well my nephew is my nephew. He is a fundamentally good man and for such a cause as his, I could not refuse the summit. And that Billy Graham fellow,Image result for firecracker gif what a firecracker he is!”

Daniels is getting increasingly uncomfortable with the duopolistic nature of his visit, but he soldiers on to paint an accurate picture of his impression of Pope Pius the Twelve.  He enjoys his work under the greater Catholic Church umbrella, but that is tempered by his need to be a snitch for Forever Mastadon. That very guilt that haunts the everyday Catholic into obedience, hangs about his spirit like an anchor.

Off in the distance he can hear and feel a low rumbling, like a passing locomotive or … thunder… In winter; can it be?

…There is no use in sitting around and doing nothing. Let’s go out and earn our per diem…

“I wonder which one of us would be considered the UFO,” Celeste muses

“From a pure Martian perspective, it is “their” planet right, I would think that both of us would considered
Unidentified; I can’t read their markings or they, ours.”

In a just-in-case moment of weakness, Celeste has set-to chronicling this whole drama for the sake of posterity. If it comes down to the sad scenario of NASA coming upon them too late, at least they will be able to share in their final moments, complete with the tearful goodbyes.

Image result for marco poloMarco Polo would sure have liked having visual evidence of the Far East, instead of being railroaded by the Holy Roman Catholic Church. Did you know that they accused him of heresy?”

“Which is one of the reasons that Catholicism only exists in a shrinking number of mostly 3rd world countries. You can’t fool all the people all the time.” The God-fearing commander of Earth-on-Mars is full of perspective, seeing that without a relationship with the Creator, they would truly be lost. “What do you say Mrs. McKinney? Should we see if those new pressure suits fit—–you know, nose around a bit?”

“I shall name that Planet after the God of War.”

Ever since ancient astronomers had deemed Mars a undisputed planetary neighbor, there has been speculation about whether there is life on the so-called Red Planet. It has become readily apparent, here in 2030, there is concrete evidence of intelligent life. That it may be from elsewhere in the Universe would be a tad humbling, if it were not for the fact that whoever sent this intergalactic machine here, were/are not infallible, if not forgetful or careless.

There is no use in sitting around and doing nothing. Let’s go out and earn our per diem.”

“…Which consists of an exclusive ground level suite at the Mothership Hilton and a lunch voucher to spend at the Little Green Man Café; can’t beat that with stick?”
