Religion is a part of all our lives. The Abernathy clan is no exception. It would be destined that at least two of them would respond to the call for worship, and two of them did. The Reverend Malcolm Abernathy followed the faith of the Anglican Church and Father Umberto Abernathy opted for the Roman Catholic Church. These two men spent most of their time in Canada, Malcolm getting into politics for a while and Umberto introduced what he considered a more practical approach to awarding of penances. In both instances the Abernathy genes prevailed and neither one practiced abstinence which was a more serious situation with Umberto than with Malcolm. Their lives and exploits are not to be taken too seriously. They are obviously figments of the imagination of the author, and are meant to be enjoyed or possibly envied.
