Excerpts

BELOW: The Punisher finds his long-time informant Mickey Fondozzi praying in St. Anscom's Catholic Church, a place the man has lately been spending considerable time at. The Punisher initially believes that former criminal Mickey Fondozzi has come to the church seeking sanctuary, a place to be safe from the Punisher himself. The Punisher is mistaken. Fondozzi is there to pray. Note Mickey Fondozzi's words: "...lead us not into temptation..." He is reciting the Lord's Prayer.
