Ignatius' Journal Entry 9

My journey has already been so challenging, the death that I have seen, and those reborn has been a great reminder of my own mortality. Additionally, now we find ourselves being asked to investigate a murder and even worse, necromancy. My life has been dedicated to knowledge, and I have spent so much of my adulthood sitting in libraries, classrooms and the temples of knowledge. I must say, I love seeing the world, and these great adventures that I have had so far, and will continue to have. But now I see that life is frail, and belongs to Tinel.

O Thou unknown, Almighty Cause
Of all my hope and fear!
In whose dread presence, ere an hour,
Perhaps I must appear!

If I have wander’d in those paths
Of life I ought to shun,
As something, loudly, in my breast,
Remonstrates I have done;

Thou know’st that Thou hast formed me
With passions wild and strong;
And list’ning to their witching voice
Has often led me wrong.

Where human weakness has come short,
Or frailty stept aside,
Do Thou, All-Good-for such Thou art-
In shades of darkness hide.

Where with intention I have err’d,
No other plea I have,
But, Thou art good; and Goodness still
Delighteth to forgive.
