Question description

Saint Michel, is a patron saint of the military who fought against evil and lead the army of God. Jake was at war trying to do something good and it cost him his masculinity. He was fighting against evil in the War and also fought against Cohn which seemed who Jake didn’t seem to like very much. Saint Michel was also the saint of police. In Chapter 19, Jake along with Brett were in a taxi and they were stopped by a police officer. In a way, the police officer symbolized a barrier between Jake and Brett. This barrier makes Jake think that he and Brett will not have a real relationship because of his injury. Similar to how the officer got in the way of Jake and Brett, Jake’s injury also gets in the way of his relationship with Brett. Lastly, the Catholic Church, Jake tries to be somewhat religious or faithful; but he doesn’t take church seriously because God didn’t really ever help Jake or do anything for him. With his injury and the relationship, he has with Brett, he feels as if God isn’t there for him to help him out. Jake wants to believe in the church and all that it has to offer, but struggles because he hasn’t seen the church or God help him in times of need. Also, when Jake prays, he doesn’t pray for himself really, he prays for things like fishing, money, and bullfights. He never relates himself to the church.
