Quote #10

"You are wrong, Monsieur," Morrel exclaimed, rising on one knee, his heart smitten by a pain sharper than any he had yet felt. "You are wrong. Valentine, having died as she has, needs not only a priest, but an avenger. You send for a priest, Monsieur de Villefort; I shall be her avenger." (103.26)

Here, once again, we see two very different kinds of salvation brought together. The priest will, one assumes, ensure that Valentine's soul is safe in heaven, while Maximilian will secure her honor and memory on Earth.
