The Abbot made himself a coffee and returned to the computer to answer Mr Blessing Justice:

Dear Mr Justice,

I greatly appreciate your comments and the African proverb. We have a proverb that says that 'many hands make light work'; meaning that when someone has a friend like you it helps to share the load and make it easier to bear. We also have one that says 'too many cooks spoil the broth', but I am a woeful cook anyway.

I certainly look forward to God's reward and approval but I must confess it would be nice to get some reward while I am here on this earthy sphere to fully enjoy it.

My flight is QANTAS QF387, leaving Melbourne on 1615hr on Sunday and arriving in London (Heathrow) on 0620 Monday morning local time.

Please pass my blessings on to Mrs Mobutu and her humiliated family.

Yours in Christ,

Augustus Tuck
Abbot, St.Rumpets Monastery & Orphanage.

For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything,
neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

- Ecclesiastes 9:5

There was a knock at his door. “Who is it?” he asked.

“Some friends. Can we come in?” The voice sounded familiar.

Before he could give and answer the door opened.

“Oh!” said the Abbot.
