    1. This lazy, slothful puppy will no longer suffer eternal torment.

    2. This wicked Christmas-hater will, at the last, be welcomed into the arms of angels.

    3. This vile disregarder of the rules of dinnertime will be shrived of his sins and given absolution.

    6. This apostate rulebreaker will be reconciled with the light.

    7. This side-eyeing dissenter will be welcomed with open arms into the Pearly Gates.
