Madonna worked as a butcher in the imperial kitchen. The new husband John, whom Madonna met there, became a wonderful father to her son, Joshua. Joshua, a saint who conveyed the message of faith, hope, and love. As the people who have been saved from the suffering of life through Joshua's sermon have increased, he's eventually sentenced to crucifixion by scribes of cognation who're threatened by his presence. And on the day of execution, saint Joshua in front of God experience the absolute solitude of the universe... Frustrated by Joshua's execution news, Madonna and her husband and the Joshua's 12 apostles jump into the deadly perils to save their son. Madonna's choice to save a dying son after her husband's death was "Virgo Intactium", an imperial super-secret space called the realm of God. With the collapse of the singularity that was the intersection of parallel universes, the Joshua's soul is scattered in each parallel universe. Madonna says that the soul of God, Joshua is survived, and that when he comes back here again, those who killed him will be dead. After a miraculous escape with his 12 apostles, people began to flock to Madonna. And a new sermon is passed on to the suffering people... This is the origin of the religion of love and retribution, Church of Madonna.

The Patron alliance's relationship with the U.C.S., the two Intersecting Spaces in the eight universe are the symbols of the universal power one is owned and managed by them and the other is owned by the church, this had to be the biggest issue between the church and the U.C.S., and they claims that it's too dangerous for a certain religious group to own one, that's why they're still using the eight universe law to demand the transfer of ownership for it so it's possible that they want to get rid of the trouble by using the breakout situation since 20 years ago.
The Head Bishop says a logistics business is good enough to be a revenue-making business model so no one would ever guess the real purpose of it, and this has to be done by someone who's able to control his power and this will compensate for the persecutions and the damages that the church has been taking.

Joshua's eye Edit
These're the most sacred halidom of the Church of Madonna. They're gems that look like human eyes. The readers don't know if these're the real Joshua's eyes.
Count El and his man goes to the Duke. El says he has these for the Duke. The Duke says this isn't something to be carried around like that. El's man substitutes Joshua's an eye by matches the mass with some metals on the left wrist's wristlet. El says he has the other one and he'd like the exclusive right for the Zipnight trade for Northern Capital Country.
The Duke breaks Joshua's an eye and tries to put El and his man in underground prison. As El is being held, he says he recently heard that the pseudo religion is taking over one of the military supply companies so this item should make the Duke the shareholder of the company and that will make him the actual owner of the eight universe. When El and his man are gone, the Duke says Mayhen that if people want to make a deal with him they should be as prepared as he's so he likes El, and he orders she'll go do some research on him because when it shattered he didn't look shaken up that means he doesn't really know the value of what he brought so he thinks there's a guy around him that's pretty good. In the meantime, Mayhen restores this to her Quanx ability. El says his man that he's sorry and Hazz told him that the Duke will make a deal with him as soon as he sees it so he just did what him told him to do.
The Duke calls to Kanu and he says he just heard about the Head Bishop is dead. Kanu thinks so it was the Duke's doing. The Duke says he only asks Kanu to continue on with the Head Bishop's unfinished business, and he humbly asks her to arrange a meeting with the archbishops because he wants the sole right to participate in the church's new business ventures as a Patron. The Duke shows this and says it's a gift he received from a noble in his domain, and it's the most sacred halidom of the Church of Madonna, and now it wouldn't be right for a common believer such as himself to have this, and the Head Bishop position will have to be filled sooner of later by one of the Bishops. Kanu surprised to sees this and she accepts it.
Kanu and the Duke meet. Kanu receives it. The Duke says Kanu will have the other one after the meeting with the archbishops. Kanu says as soon as the funeral of the late Head Bishop is over, she'll arrange the meeting.
In 1. A.E. (2) - Ch.495, El says to Hazz that Federick's paycheck is 100 times the usual rate so this is outrageous. Hazz says with the price, he now have connection with the Duke himself. El asks what he did get from following Hazz's advice, and first he gave up the halidom, and now he has to pay that Federick two more digits.
At the night, the Duke is eating dinner, and another people don't eat. Mayhen reports the new messages. Mayhen reports the biggest issue was his meeting with the archbishops will soon take place as the Duke wished. The Duke is relieved that he just hope that he'll make it till then. Mayhen reports the Count El sent a message. The Duke says El's request had nothing to do with the Aorica incident, so he really like his attitude when he starting with the halidom from the church. The Duke orders that Mayhen should send more White Police Guards for El and no one else and ignore the rest. That means El's butler, Hazz is right.

No one knows when the pathogen becomes active, so, Devas get sent off as here nurses to "practice love of Mother Madonna" until the day they die.

Previously, the head of the Level zero admin was revealed to be a bad credit. He calls for an emergency and he tells there're 300 patient survivors on this ship, and they're covering their food and supply expenses while they're marooned, so he proposes Level zero admin split that budget amongst Level zero admin.
The consent to the incineration asks for Devas' consent to be sent to the incinerator after the self-combustion. But in reality, if Devas sign the consent, Level zero admin can send them off to the furnace planet as soon as they go in coma. Level zero admin is trying to save cost and time by getting rid of Devas' bodies before the combustion. The church remains silent because they have noting to lose over this.
There're 2 ways to have church official's name permanently deleted from the church's record, one of those ways is to get sent off on the here. To admins, the Level zero survivors were alive yet non-existent. The only trace of their existence is their signature on the incinerator consent form. The only audit church performs is comparing incinerator head count to the number of consent forms every month. So, in summary, the consent form turned into a kind of body waiver form. The other is maybe they cut the priests' arms off and let them rot in the planet Gaia and they'll live like a stray iron dog until the day he dies.

See the Baby priest here.
A Guardian priest that desires a Deva will suffer the living hell. But Madonna's Bible wasn't a single verse that prohibited love between a priest and a Deva.

Holy visits Edit
Holy visits (심방, Muhwawon / 尋訪, Mai Hanazono / 寻访, Wǔ huāyuán) is first mentioned in the Rami Record (2) (Korean, In Denma, it's (1)). And in original Denma version, it's first mentioned in A Catnap (1) link (Korean), and in English Denma version, it's first mentioned in A Catnap (6).
In the setting of Rami Record, it's revealed that this is a business trip to parallel universes according to the instructions of church body to find the Saint Joshua's body. The priestesses are given a role to look for the body of Saint Joshua along with the Guardian priests. It's a duty that must be accomplished if Deva, the top priestess of the church body, is her future hope. They must fill the blood ampoule's quota. Since the opening of the House of Dancing Flowers at this point, only two people have found Joshua's reincarnated body and become Deva. But nowadays they find Joshua's reincarnated body and don't become a Deva. 99% will become Deva according to their grades. When the priestesses go out to this and die unexpectedly, they're end with prayer once. Because of these points, preliminary nobles don't like to do this. Like Rami, pre-priestesses who have no money and no background can go for this instead of others.
One of the Intersecting Spaces of the parallel universe, 3rd Great Delphys is a dedicated space for the pre-priestesses who begin this. Although the agency of this is basically forbidden in House of Dancing Flowers, Rami has mutual trust that goes beyond those principles. This is a bribe. Once the priestesses have confirmed their identity, they'll be receive preparation materials for this. Once they have identified the places and objects that the church body has set, they enter into open Intersecting Space. As they move from Intersecting Space to parallel universe, they feel like the body and mind are spreading all over the place. Usually in this case, a tearful phenomenon occurs. This is subtly addictive. In the parish of the Church of Madonna in Parallel universe, the Guardian priest is waiting. In exchange for the client's blood sample, the priestess gives the client the help requested.
It's the principle to record all interviews and client's requests. The church body is entirely responsible for any personal disadvantage resulting from record leak. The request is usually trouble consultation, room cleaning, laundry.
When the day ends, the priestess and Guardian priest return to the parish. The priestess send the blood sample to 3rd Great Delphys first according to the procedure.
In (6), Ran says this accident could seem like one of those conflicts, and this is the next stage of what he's protecting the development of the church from the rebels of inside and outside. Ran says first, the samples are almost collected from this and now that the Intersecting Space of the parallel universe will shut down for quite a while and this disturbance is just enough to take care of the ideologists that are against shutting down this. And Ran explains the next stage, intergalactic courier business, that church body has been preparing and they need Quanx for courier guys as a part of the business plan and they'll start working in the eight universe and they'll be going on missions without knowing that they're, and he can't tell right now because it'll cost a tremendous amount of time and money.

The Duke taps on a calculator and asks Hades recaptured by the Internal Affairs Department and Mayhen answers they've already asked Agnes to remove him. The Duke calculates if Hades escapes again there's a high chance that his next target will be the Palace is 100% because his only chance of surviving is going through the Intersecting Space to go to another universe, so he should take advantage of him a mere threat to the Palace only makes the principalists bond together so to rule over them, they've to fall into despair. The Duke says the Palace is an iconic Intersecting Space for the principalists of the Church of Madonna, and there's no need for 2 Intersecting Spaces in the eight universe, especially for a religious group full of lies. Mayhen thinks maybe he did just decide to destroy the Palace.
The Duke says he want Agnes don't visit the Palace for the rest of this period because hands off of her mission on taking Hades out, because he's got some other things to take care of, he has already gave a new order to his faithful dog at the Internal Affairs Department.
