The Zombi of Aquin-A Pastor’s Point of View

“As an eyewitness of certain parts of this event, I would like first of all to confirm the truth of your clear statements, by showing you the results of some test that I actually applied to the victim in order to verify his identity” “Having called out several different names from a distance, no reaction or charge in his behavior could be observed.  But when I finally called his name,  he reacted immediately.  To everyone’s surprise, he still has a very close relationship with his mother, a brave woman despite the period of 6 years that had separated them.  He easily recognizes the teachers he had had in the past; on his forehead, marked by worry and distrust, scars can still be seen from an injury he sustained when he was 15 years old.” “….in the name of this same Christian faith, allow me, my dear Toussaint, to carry this light that has not shined brightly enough in this column.  My dear friend,  I am not speaking of a Haitian resurrection.  For a true resurrection can only take place if death was real;  even so, this explanation does not rid us of the various figurative uses of the word.  A zombie is someone who has been declared dead according to our methods and according to the physical symptoms that we usually go by to determine that someone is dead (no breathing,  apparent distension of the muscles…). …The key to true resurrection belongs to one person only, and that person is Jesus Christ, who gave us the proof of this on the third day following his crucifixion.  It is also written in the Holy Book:  “For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.  For as in Adam all die,  so in Christ all will be made alive” (1 Cor. 15:21)

This letter for Toussaint is written by a Pastor named Pastor Jude Valery.  The letter is said to address the case of Romel  Laplante who died and reappeared after 6 years.  The letter was written on the 11th of March 1985.
