Hearken, all ye listeners, to my tale, the story of Everyman and his harrowing journey. I hope, ye listeners, that thou recognizeth a great moral within my tale. I have mentioned thus before, in numerous of thy discussions, that to face Death and the judgment of Our Lord is a prospect most dire and terrifying. Thou knoweth now of how I quailed in the face of my judgment, and of the many I turned to for council and comfort. None would commit themselves to travel with me beyond the mortal coil, to face the critical eye of Our Lord as He judgeth our sins and our lives. Twas only the Good Deeds of my life, frail as they were, that would commit to my journey and stand beside me before the eye of God. Tis a lucky and painful truth that, in life, I was unconcerned with these Deeds, and strengthened them not through admirable pursuit. Only once I had received the benefit of a Confession didst my deeds stand strong enough to earn me a place in Our Lord’s great Kingdom. I could admit the great relief twas brought to me by my salvation, but such a fact, I hope, is obvious. Instead, I turn thy attention to the true moral of my tale. Tis one of shame, shame at recognizing my shortcomings only when faced with Death and divine judgment. I would then use my tale as a careful warning to thee, my listeners. Long have I preached that such trifles as Goods and Strength and Beauty are impermanent things, sources of shameful Pride that will comfort one in life and abandon them just the same when Death arrives. Twas luck allowed me salvation when I Confessed to wash myself of sin. The lesson is that a life spent Confessing as thou shouldst, and living with care for the strength of thy Good Deeds, is what guarantees salvation. Hindsight shouldst never be thy moral compass. Now I send to thee my blessing, and wish you all purity and light in thy lives and in the eye of Our Lord.
