Father John Carmody (3)
This became the first part of the novel Night of Light (1966), which was expanded with a second part.
DESCRIPTION:
From the introduction in F&SF: "Father John Carmody, a shroud, adroit interstellar servant of God, but there was an earlier Carmody, whose nature, as Farmer now reveals it, may startle and even shock you. This short novel is a startling tale in many respects—daringly imaginative, vividly visual, almost surrealistic in its images and in its psychology, singularly convincing in its creation of an alien religious culture and in its revelation of that culture's extraordinary powers".
