I won't attempt to analyze the happenings of the Synod since the High Noon occurrence of October 13th. Suffice to say it did not end with Cardinal Baldisserri and his gang riding off into the sunset, their kidnapped Bride (The Church) in the wagon with them. "Will Kane" once again emerged the victor, only this time the He did not throw his badge into the dirt after saving the Bride and then ride away. This time He just shook his head in disgust and disbelief, awestruck at the sheer audacity shown by the bad guys, that they really thought they could kidnap His Bride and get away with it. Or of the townsfolk, who thought Him accepting of their desires. "Nope", he opines to to no one in particular, "You had plenty of warning of what I would do...what I always have done. Don't ever again mistake my seemingly benign persona as a weakness to be exploited."
If Cardinal Baldisserri can be thought of as "Frank Miller", then it remains that Will Kane is, quite evidently, The Holy Ghost - He "Who governest the Church". The Holy Ghost, the "Author of all good", re-wrote the Relatio. It was The Holy Ghost, the "Consuming fire", that quenched the immoral desires of a few. Finally, it was The Holy Ghost, the "Spirit of the fear of the Lord" who reminded His Princes to "inspire in us the practice of good", to "make us persevere in justice" and to "lead us in the way of salvation". In short, The Holy Ghost, through His agents (Cardinals Burke, Napier and Pell at the forefront) orchestrated the coupe. Or was it a coup de grace?
