"or else everything that happened will become a sweet story that will grow poisonous as bright berries that hang low on trees." Whatever else we know, we know the writer is bad at his craft.

Isn't it always the way? Great prose is not practiced by sowers of discord.
A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
