Bond had a license to kill; Chrysologus had a license to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to save souls. Both men were fighters, but in different ways – Bond fought with his strength and his trusty Walther PPK while Saint Peter used in his wit and prose of gold to combat the heresies of the time and to win converts for Jesus Christ.
