Bless Me, Ultima Chapter 17 Summary


  • Antonio is well on his way to completing catechism class, which will culminate in the double whammy of his first confession and his first Holy Communion. But Antonio still wants answers about God's place in the world and in his life.
  • Florence, Antonio's friend and classmate, openly questions the existence of God.
  • Antonio and Florence are late for catechism class. Florence is punished, Antonio is not, which seems a bit unfair.
  • In class, the students wrestle with the idea of "Eternity."
