PARADISE IS NOT EMPTY

***

No one is perfect

Paradise is not empty

God is merciful

***

NOTE: Piccarda Donati broke a religious vow, yet she is in Paradise. If we had to be perfect to get into Paradise, Paradise would be empty.

MOON

***

Moon waxes and wanes

Faith in God waxes and wanes

Moon is just like faith

***

NOTE: As Date rises to Paradise, he will stop at various places to talk to people and learn. The Moon is associated with faith, and Dante will talk to people who can teach him about religious vows.
