Antonio believes that, according to Catholic principles, Lupito must be in hell because Lupito died having committed a mortal sin. Antonio's views of God and judgment are fairly black and white. There is little room for mitigating factors. Tony wonders if God's forgiveness might touch Lupito. He thinks, however, that Gods laws are not meant to be broken and God seldom forgives unrepentant sin. Tony also wonders whether the water of the river will carry Lupito’s soul away.
