Hudson Valley, NY, December 29, 2018 --( Page 62: “One more signature and Luciano was finished. Leaving it for last, he picked up the document, read through it, then signed his name at the bottom. In addition to being the superior general of the Jesuits, the largest and most powerful religious order in the world, he now was the new president of the Union of Superiors General, representing more than two hundred religious congregations from around the world. Smiling to himself, he couldn’t believe his good fortune. Everything was coming together better than he could have ever imagined. He hadn’t expected the appointment, but it would certainly benefit him in carrying out his plan. He placed the pen on his latest purchase, a five thousand dollar, solid fourteen karat gold sculptural pen tray. The artist, the award winning New York sculptor and designer Mark Weisbeck, named the piece Goldenwave. It was designed to resemble the elegant curves of a gentle wave of desert sands. Luciano admired the elegance and simplicity of its design. A hand-cut, mirror-polished gold sheet, with a natural, rare ebony wood base trimmed in fine Scottish leather cradled the writing instrument now resting on it. It was custom-made for him by the designer and personally engraved “To the Superior General.” It was a gift to himself. Having spent forty-two million on refurbishing his residence, what was another five thousand dollars?” (Excerpt: "The Holy Predator")
