Now, the priest teaches that every little girl that will take the White Veil they'll become the bride of Christ. He teaches her to believe that her family will be saved. It doesn't make any difference how many banks they rob, how many stores they rob. It doesn't make any difference how they drink and smoke and carouse and live out in this sinful way and do all the things that sinners do. It doesn't make a bit of difference. Still, our family will be saved if we continue to live in the convent and give our lives to the convent or to the Church, we can rest assured that every members of our immediate family will be saved.
And you know that there are many little children that are influenced and enticed to to go into convents because we realize that it will be the salvation for our families. And sometimes, even Roman Catholic family, the children grow up and leave the Roman Catholic Church and go out into the deepest of sin. And so every little girl that enters into the convent is hoping by her sacrificing so much - home and mother and daddy - everything that a child loves - her family will be saved regardless of what sins they commit. And of course we're children and our minds are immature and we don't know any better. And it's so easy to instill things like that into the hearts and minds of little children .. and the priest is really very good at it.
And of course we looked upon our priest - our Father confessor - I looked upon him as God. He's the only God I knew anything about. To me he is infallible. I didn't think he could sin. I didn't think that he would lie. I didn't think that he ever made a mistake. I looked upon him as the holiest of holies, because I didn't know of God, but I did know the Roman Catholic Priest. And to me, I looked to him for everything that I asked of any of God, so to speak, I believed the priest would give it to me.
And so the day comes and we, all of us now - and as we go on in, I want you to listen carefully, after taking the White Veil - things are beautiful. I'm sixteen and a half years of age. Everyone's good to me. And I'm living in the convent and I haven't seen anything yet, because no little girl - we're not subject to a Roman Catholic Priest until we're twenty-one years of age. And as we give you this next vow, then you'll understand - we don't know about this. This is kept from the little sisters until we've taken our Black Veil and then it's too late.
I don't carry the keys those double doors, and there's no way for me to come out. The priests will tell all over the whole United States and other countries that sisters, or Nuns, rather, can walk out of convents when they want to. I spent twenty-two years there, I did everything there was to do to get out. I've carried table spoons with me into the dungeon and tried to dig down into that dirt because there's no floors in those places. But I never yet found myself digging far enough to get out of a convent with a table spoon, and that's about the only instrument - because when we're using the spade - and we do have to do hard, heavy work - when we use a spade we're being guarded - we're being watched by two older Nuns and they're going to report on it -- and I'll assure you you're not going to try and dig out with a spade. You wouldn't get very far anyway, because they built and made those convents, or built those convents, so little Nuns cannot escape. That was their purpose in building them, as they build them. And there's no way for us to get out unless God makes a way. But I believe God's making a way for numbers of little girls to come out of the convent.
