In need of sanctuary after a personal trauma, a pretty Catholic woman, Deborah D’Bennedeto, applies to be accepted as a nun at an historic California mission. A year later, a sexually tormented Priest, Father Joseph, passes a love note to her in the chapel, which gives instructions on a plan to escape from the Mission with him that night. Confused and upset, Dorothy shows the note to the Mother Superior. During an investigation a fictitious erotic manuscript written by Father Joseph is discovered. The Bishop of the Mission asks Dorothy to read the manuscript to determine its truth. The story, which includes scenes of bondage, oral and anal sex, and the loss of her virginity, arouses Dorothy’s suppressed desires. She is soon accepted as a nun and given the name Sister Gabrielle. However, late at night she makes a copy of theforbidden manuscript, reads it over and over and then hides it in her room.
Plagued by guilt in her role of getting Father Joseph sent away, Gabrielle wakes up the next morning with a high fever and is sent home for a week to recover. After Father Joseph is released from the asylum, Gabrielle secretly follows him to The Sanctuary, a topless downtown nightclub. She has a flirtatious encounter with the handsome owner, Kristoff, and witnesses a performance where Kristoff places a nude model in bondage and suspends her above the stage. Ashamed, Gabrielle leaves the club, however, later she returns to the Sanctuary, having exchanged her nun’s robes for a sexy dress and dyed blonde hair. She wants to be trained to work in his club as a topless waitress and rope model. Kristoff keeps her identity a secret and encourages her to explore her sexuality before committing to a life of celibacy. She easily becomes the most popular waitress and she has several sexual encounters. But as her week away from the Mission ends, Gabrielle must decide whether to confront the cause of her trauma or escape back into the cloistered walls of the abbey.
The Sanctuary contains consensual scenes of a highly erotic nature, including light bondage, oral and anal sex.

Chapter One
The Priest

After another poor night of sleep I hear the ringing of the bells, calling the faithful to worship. Exhausted, I put on my thick robe and walk down the dark corridor toward the main chapel. Entering the nave I sit in my usual pew and look up at the large wooden sculpture of the crucifixion of Christ. Sacrificed for the sins of mankind, the gaunt, bleeding figure looks down upon me in agony, in judgment. As the Priest recites the opening prayer, a familiar ache settles in the depths of my soul. I’ve struggled with depression for several years now, but lately the narrow confines of the sanctuary are closing in on me. In a few days I’m scheduled to deliver the homily at my first Mass as an ordained Priest. The closer I get to Sunday, the worse I feel. Though I’ve studied four years and dedicated an additional year of service to the Mission of St. Sebastian, my faith seems fragile, like a house of cards, ready to collapse at the slightest errant thought.
In fact, I’m ashamed to admit that several times a day I’m plagued by fantasies of a highly erotic nature. It’s as if I’m alone in a dark room where sensual images are constantly being projected upon a screen in my mind which I have no choice but to watch. During my years as a seminarian, with an effort of will, I managed to suppress these inappropriate desires, though they always seem to be brewing just under the surface. Over the last few months, I’ve lost all self-control. I see the legs of an attractive female tourist walk by and I can’t stop myself from admiring the soft, feminine shape of her hips. She crosses the sanctuary and I am compelled, like a brown-robed spider, to creep after her. I sit across the aisle from her as she worships in the main chapel, her elegant long fingers holding the Holy Bible in her lap. She bows her head to pray and I imagine taking liberties with her, caressing her soft breasts and stroking my fingers through her long, silky hair. I close my eyes, drifting away into my favorite fantasy…
It’s late at night and we are alone in the Mission. The praying woman walks out of the chapel and down a long corridor into the darkness. Like a degenerate, I follow. The only sound is the clicking of her heels on the ancient stone floor. She knows she’s I’m close behind, we’ve played this game before. Looking over her shoulder, she loosens the first few buttons of her dress. I follow her into a warm, candlelit room, shutting the heavy wooden doors behind me. She kneels before an altar and I approach her from behind. Through the opening of her blouse I see the creamy white flesh of her bosom. Sensing my presence, she stands up and faces me unafraid. Casting her eyes downward, she slowly removes each item of clothing. Blouse, skirt, bra and panties slip off her body and fall into a silken pool on the floor. She kneels before me and I remove the cord from around the waist. Slowly extending her arms, she turns her palms outward and offers her wrists to be bound. Once tied, she shuts her eyes and parts the flesh of her luscious, moist lips...
I open my eyes, ashamed once again to have fantasized about an innocent woman who has come to our chapel to pray, only to be ogled by a perverted Priest. No matter how hard I try, I’m unable to stop these indecent thoughts from infesting my mind. Am I the only person at this Mission who struggles with feelings of lust and despair? I wish there was someone I could talk to but there’s no one here I can trust, not even the Bishop or the Prefect. I could blame it on a demon with a pitchfork or a slithering snake sent from the bowels of Hell to tempt me. No, these sexual thoughts have always been a part of me, woven into the very fabric of my consciousness, my identity. And I know they won’t just magically disappear once I enter the Priesthood. They will be a constant weight upon my mind and are a cross I must continue to bear. I wish Adam had never been tempted or God had not judged his desire to partake of the forbidden fruit so harshly. I bow my head and pray in vain for these feelings to go away. When the morning service ends I quietly leave the chapel with the other parishioners, keeping my eyes focused on the ground.
Despite my dirty thoughts I’ve carried on in this manner in preparation for a life of piety. But today, after morning meal, an unexpected circumstance plunges me deeper into my own carnality. I receive a special request that comes directly from the personal assistant of Mother Superior, one of the Directors of the Mission and the Head Nun of the Abbey of St. Sebastian. Along with her other duties, Mother Superior is the Candidate Director, responsible for choosing which prospective nuns will join the Abbey.
“Mother Superior has been taken ill this morning,” the assistant says, “and we’re looking for someone to step in for her today and conduct a tour of the Mission for a prospective nun named Dorothy D’Bennedeto.”
“Dorothy D’Bennedeto,” I say, repeating her name in a daze.
“Though I know your work here is principally concerned with the management of the Kristoff Food Pantry, Mother Superior tells me you also conduct tours of the historic Mission for tourists and visiting dignitaries…”
“I have, occasionally,” I say.
“Would you have time to fill in for the Candidate Director this afternoon at 1, Father Joseph?”
I agree to take Mother Superior’s place, having no idea how this innocent meeting would dramatically alter the course of my life.

Chapter Two
The Nun

Dorothy D’Bennedeto… What a lovely name. Just the sound of it brings a sense of peace to my soul, like a wave breaking upon the shore. I pace the Mission grounds, looking forward to the meeting and whispering her name just under my breath over and over: Dorothy D’Bennedeto, Dorothy D’Bennedeto… At the appointed time, I walk down the corridor to where the meeting is scheduled to be held. The door to the Fellowship Room is half open and I look in. The young woman is already inside, kneeling on the floor in quiet contemplation below a statute of Jesus. I pause in the doorway and look around the edge of the door to drink in her beauty. Her eyes are shut and her hands are clasped tightly together in her lap. Her pink cheeks, painted lips and light blue eye shadow bring a much needed burst of color and life into the musty old room. Her long brown hair is very thick and pretty, sweeping over her arms and covering her shoulders and breasts like a prayer shawl. She is well endowed and… strikingly attractive. It’s as if the fantasy woman I’ve tried so hard to repress has somehow burst out of my mind and come vividly to life, right before my astonished eyes. In her kneeling position, the hem of her short skirt has slipped all the way up her legs, revealing her pale upper thighs. She bends forward in fervent prayer, a Madonna in the flesh.
When I see her breasts between the buttons of her blouse, I stand absolutely still. I try to cast my gaze discretely downward, but my eyes inevitably creep back up to her bosom. Through the material of the blouse I notice she isn’t wearing a bra. My lips part and I breathe out a quiet sigh. Not only is her cleavage showing, but I can see a portion of the light brown rings of her areolas as well. Her swollen nipples are clearly protruding through the thin material, standing proudly erect and pointing heavenward. My eyes drift up her elegant neck to her pretty face and I watch as her red lips move in silent prayer.
I assume no one noticed Ms. D’Bennedeto when she entered the cathedral. Sucked dry of life, with receding hairlines and shuffling gaits, the Priests of the Mission greet tourists with sad, half-smiles and look out at the manicured gardens through sad, sunken eyes. I suppose my sexuality will be gone soon as well, whisked away in the smoke of devotional candles and incense. But at this moment at least, in the presence of such a lovely creature, my heart pounds in my chest, blood courses through my veins. Like the earthquake which toppled this Mission many years ago, her beauty shakes me to the core. I feel a weakness in the knees, a slight dizziness and… God help me… I become physically aroused.
Mortified by my reaction, there is nothing whatsoever I can do to stop it from happening. There I stand, like the cliché of a sexually deviant priest, a laughable figure, peering through the crack in the doorway at the young woman’s breasts, my erection creating a perverse tent under my cloak. One glance at the comely young woman and twenty nine years of Hail Mary’s, a Theology and Divinity Degree as well as a lifetime of homilies and bible study are forgotten. Even the cold marble eyes of Jesus seem to admire her beauty.
I don’t know how long I stood there gawking at her. It could’ve been less than a minute or more than five, I have no way of knowing. Suddenly, the Mission bells begin to ring loudly. The woman opens her eyes and glances up at me. She doesn’t appear in the least bit startled by my presence; as if she knew I was there the whole time. Even after she catches me peering in at her I continue to stand in the doorway. What’s wrong with me? Have I lost all sense of morality? The thought crosses my mind I should ask one of the nuns to conduct the tour of the Mission, but it’s too late. I don’t want to leave her now.
After the ringing fades, I immediately intertwine my fingers and push the disobedient thing under my robe back into place. Hopefully, she didn’t see it pointing at her like the barrel of a gun. I have never felt more embarrassed or alive in my life.
“Hello,” she says, rather sweetly. “I didn’t see you standing there.”
Her voice is lovely, like the sound of bird landing on the branch of a tree. She stands, pulling down on the hem of her shirt.
“I’m Dorothy D’Bennedeto…”
“Good afternoon,” I manage to say.
I breathe out. Her voice soothes me, quiets my tormented thoughts. She holds her soft, small hand out and I gladly take it in mine. I hold it gently for a short, blissful moment, feeling her skin against my fingertips, until it slips out of my grasp.
“Are you here for the tour of St. Sebastian?” I ask, stupidly.
“Yes…” she says.
A long awkward silence passes between us. I stand there, knuckles dragging on the ground, a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
“I’m sorry if I disturbed your prayers,” I say.
She looks me directly in the eyes in a disarming manner, as if she can read my mind, peer into my soul. A slight smile creases her lips.
“Oh, you didn’t disturb me, Father. I was only… pretending to pray,” she says.
Pretending to pray? What an odd, insightful thing to say. Why would she say that? Are the first words out of her sensuous lips some kind of veiled spiritual message to me? Is that not what I’ve been doing all my life, pretending to pray?
“I’m not sure I understand what you mean,” I say.
“You see, I’ve done something… very bad. No one can forgive the sins I’ve committed,” she says.
I try to give an appropriate priestly response.
“All sins are forgiven by the Grace of God.”
My words come out flat and hollow. What exactly is meant by the concept of sin? Lately, I seem to be questioning all my former beliefs.
“Not my sins. Some sins can never be forgiven…” she says.
What in the world did she do? This was obviously way beyond my level of expertise. With my recent crisis of faith, I was the absolutely worst person for her to talk to.
“Do you wish to talk to talk to someone, Ms. D’Bennedeto? If you’d like, I could arrange a confession with one of the elder Priests, perhaps?” I suggest. “Whatever you say will be strictly confidential.”
“No thank you,” she says. “I’d rather confess my sins to you, Father. Perhaps later, if you don’t mind…”
She cocks her head slightly to one side and there is a mischievous twinkle in her eyes. Is she flirting with me or is my fevered brain just imagining it? In the silence, she breathes in and arches her back, making her lovely breasts stand out even more prominently then before. Despite how inappropriate it is, my eyes drift down to her cleavage, just for a brief instant. My cheeks flush with shame when she catches me looking at her breasts. I immediately glance away.
“I’m sorry, Father…” she says.
“For what?” I ask.
“For…the inappropriate way I’m dressed.”
I haven’t spoken, really spoken to a woman for so long. I realize how much I enjoy being in her company. The depressed feelings I’ve carried for several years seem to lift off my chest like a heavy weight and I feel much lighter without it. I imagine Jesus carrying the heavy crucifix up a hill and suddenly deciding to toss it to the ground and walk away from it all, Mary Magdalene by his side.
“Nothing whatsoever is wrong with the way you’re dressed. The blouse looks… pretty on you, if you don’t mind my saying.”
“No, I don’t mind, Father…”
Was I flirting now? With a prospective nun? In this sacred Mission? Rather than being insulted, she smiles.
“That’s very kind of you to say, but even I know this top is not suitable for church. You see, my Mother wishes to embarrass me in front of the nuns,” she says.
“Why would she want to do that?” I ask.
“Well… it’s a little personal, Father.”
I look down, knowing I had crossed the line.
“Of course. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to pry… Forgive me.”
“That’s OK, Father,” she says.
When I look up she gives me another warm smile.
“Maybe I’ll tell you all about it later… in confession.”
“I’m not officially ordained as a priest yet, so I’m unable to hear your confession,” I say.
We continue to look at each other through the half open door. Despite the way she’s dressed, something about the innocence and purity of the young woman makes me open up and share my innermost thoughts with her. The truth I’m too afraid to admit, even to myself, spills out of my mouth unbidden, just as the precious pale flesh of her lovely breasts spills so tenderly out of the opening of her blouse.
“Actually, I’m not at all sure if I’ll be ordained,” I confess. “I’ve performed all the prerequisites, finished my degree in Theology and my Masters in Divinity and completed my year of parish service, but… I still don’t know whether I have the calling to enter the priesthood…”
An embarrassing silence follows after I share such private details of my life. It is too much information to share with a complete stranger. Once again I’ve crossed the bounds of propriety with her.
“I’m sorry. I really shouldn’t have told you that…” I say. “It’s just… there’s no one really for me to talk to about these matters and… I’m sorry, Ms. D’Bennedeto. If you’d rather be given the tour by someone else, I can see if one of the nuns would be available.”
Again, her smile brings a fleeting sense of joy to my heart, like the bright colors that sometimes shine through stained glass windows.
“No, that’s OK,” she says. “I appreciate your honesty. It’s refreshing. I’m not so sure this sort of life is a right fit for me either, Father.”
“Entering a convent is certainly a big decision to make,” I say. “And my name is Joseph, by the way. Not Father Joseph, just Joseph.”
“Pleased to meet you, Joseph,” she says, smiling again.
I smile back. The sound of her cheerful voice causes a warm sensation to slowly spread through my chest. Standing stiffly in the doorway, I feel like one of the cold, religious statues in our sanctuary coming to life.
“May I come in, Ms. D’Bennedeto?” I ask.
“Yes, of course,” she says.
I walk into the room and shut the door. Shutting the door is really unnecessary, but I want to be alone with her. There is a kind of electricity flowing back and forth between us, though I realize I may be imagining it. Perhaps I only hoped there was. Another long awkward moment passes. With an effort of will I direct my eyes upon her pretty face and try not to look down at her lovely bosom and curved hips. I wonder if she could tell how attracted I am to her.
“Where is the Mother Superior?” she finally asks.
“Oh yes. Uh… she was taken ill this morning.” I say. “I was asked to give you the tour of the Mission in her place and answer any questions you might have about the monastic life here. Would you care to sit down?”
She nods and we sit across from each other at a large wooden table. I’m relieved the grotesque physical reaction of my body is finally blocked from her sight. While seated, I keep pushing down on it to hold it between my thighs, but it seems to have a mind of its own, popping back up under my robe like a dirty Jack in the Box.
Again, silence. Dorothy must think I’m the worst guide, being so tongue-tied around her. I wish she could be sitting closer to me at the table. She seems so far away, even though it’s only a few feet.
“So… when did you decide to explore the idea of becoming a nun?” I ask.
“To be honest, I don’t really want to be a nun. It’s Mother’s idea. I’m from a very religious family. Because of what happened recently, she thinks a few weeks in the nunnery will straighten me out, like sending a boy off to military school, I guess,” she says. “What about you, Joseph? What made you interested in becoming a priest?” she asks.
“Oh, I suppose I was inspired by the teachings of Jesus when he fed the poor and took care of the sick. I was raised in the church as well and it seemed like a worthwhile thing to do with my life,” I explain in a dull, uninspired way.
We stare at each other for another moment and then I stand up, careful to keep my hands folded in front of me.
“Would you care to begin the tour, Ms. D’Bennedeto?”
“Yes, but please call me Dorothy. Ms. D’Bennedeto sounds like I’m already a nun.”
I actually smile. I had forgotten the last time I had smiled.
“There are several historical sites and monuments at this Mission I’d like to point out. I can also show you the cloister and the abbey where you’ll be staying, if you choose to join the abbey,” I say.
“OK,” she replies.
“The tour can be pretty tedious. Please stop me if I’m boring you.”
She laughs.
“If I’m going to be stuck here, I better know my way around, right?” she says.
“Right,” I say, laughing as well.
I open the door for her. Before we leave, Dorothy faces me and puts her hand gently on my shoulder, resting it there for a fleeting moment. It was the moment I knew I would look back upon before I die and think, that was the moment I truly felt happiness…
“You know, Joseph?” she says. “I want to thank you. I was very nervous about coming here today and you really have put me at ease. Even though you might not think so right now, I think you’ll make an excellent priest.”
I look at her with a blossoming of love in my heart. Tears appear in my eyes.
“That’s kind of you to say, Dorothy.”
She takes her hand off my shoulder and walks out of the Fellowship Room. I watch her leave and could hardly breath, admiring the perfect curves of her hips and the sensual spot under her short flirty dress where the two crescent-shaped halves of her flesh touch. How beautiful her ass is, and how lovely. I make a mental note to rip this journal up into million pieces so no one, other than God if He exists, can see into the perversity of my soul. No one must ever read this. No one.
