Quandary Resolution 5037
mortify, disconsolate, resplendent, gobbet
Surely Sister Agnesia is resplendent now, as she floats among the clouds up in Heaven, her silvery wings and satin robe illuminated by the glow of her halo, but back on earth her survivors in the convent remain disconsolate at the memory of how she mortified her body, with whips and fasting, until all that was left was an inert gobbet of flesh.
