Ignatius Lally was born and raised in a conservative Catholic environment. He discovered he could speak to God and God spoke back to him when he made his first Holy Communion at the age of seven. When he found out that Santa Claus did not really exist he asked God was He, too, like Santa, but God said no. So Ignatius continued to talk with God and God with him. He eventually embraced the priesthood out of love for his God, and continued his friendship with Him despite breaking His laws, as defined by the Church, many times. But when he was falsely accused of an unspeakable crime, God stopped speaking to him and he was left to fend for himself. This led to many adventures and brought him to a place in his belief that was far removed from where he started. And his God never spoke to him again.
