The church of St. James has for centuries sent men and boys into the darkness of the earth to uncover the pit that Satan has in fact been living for millenniums. They have sent the boys there to coax the evil thing out of his hiding so that the evil can be dealt with once and for all. I, being in sound mind and body, am the only person to have ever come back from that darkness and I am the only person to ever stand in front of the alter at St. James and say that, after looking in all pits and caves of that dark place, nothing was to be found except animals and other oddities that thrive in places that light never touches. I must say I was attacked numerous times and starved almost to death but, above all, I think I was more afraid of what might have came up from those deep crevices in which I was forced to cross in order to obtain my destination. The scariest thing I ever found in those caves, I can tell you now, was never a living thing nor was it an evil being; known to me now, and was a mystery until I came out alive, was the fact that fear itself was the deadliest thing lurking in those caverns. It was my own mind that kept me running in fear.
but, now that I am back from that terrible and insidious place, I know that fear is only inside of our minds and reality, even if it is deadly, can be handled with our very hands and seen with our very eyes; and this, because it is real, makes it‘s destruction obtainable.
I can say, without having a single doubt in my mind, that nothing lives inside of the earth, for if there was a hell, I would have seen it; and, if there was a devil, I would have met him; and, if there was a place that the devil was forced to stay, until unleashed upon this earth, I would have found it out and ran him out; for, I do not think that Satan would have been a match for me, with God on my side who can be against me; and if God Himself, is aganst Satan who can ever be for evil and win?
As I said this, and as it was being recorded by the church elders, the Cardinal, for the Pope was away, came down to me and gave a drink from his cup. The congregation, who were in attendance to celebrate my return, for I had been away for a year or more, watched in amazement and wished silently that they could drink from that cup; for, that cup, is said to have miraculous powers; and, being an old cup that has been passed down for centuries, some even say that Peter held it and drank from it long ago, but this is not proven.
After being refreshed from the cup, I produced my back pack and told his Eminence, who was not the pope, but instead the Cardinal, that I had found traces of the Three Brothers which had wandered the caves in search of the devil centuries before. I admit that my feelings were hurt by the excitement his face showed; for, the instant he knew that the Three Brother’s remains had been found and that word had come back from them, his smile broadened he did not care for my journey any longer. The fact of the Cardinal’s happiness weighed on me heavily, because I knew that this discovery would make my journey unimportant; and twice, while being in that inferno, I was tempted to throw their remains into a fire and never saying anything about finding them; but, in all my efforts to destroy them, God won over and, because I knew that the truth would have been found out, I carried their belongings back to the surface.
Just as it says in the Bible, what happens in darkness will come to the light, and if anyone was in the dark, while in that cavern, it was me; and, after finding their remains, I started toward the surface.
