At times when sinners are dying, they still cry for Hooper, refusing to yield in death until he comes to them.

Father Hooper is dying.
The last character to be evaluated in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales is the Parson. When closely exanimating his character, no flaw can be found. He provides great insight on the coexistence of men with good and bad nature in such a time period. Unlike the Friar and the Pardoner, the Parson has no care for money or glory; nor does he ever have immoral relations with women or deceitful actions. There is nothing in his heart but love for God and others.
History also claims that prayer life of Daniel was disciplined as well as dynamic. He use to prayer regular with full concentration and conversation with the God.

Through these actions it is observed that Daniel didn’t rush into his prayer, he took his time, “Daniel’s prayer-petition for divine mercy and favor was no empty formulaic prayer. His prayer was genuine, as evidenced by grief as if from the edge of the grave” (McLain 274). Daniel begins his prayer by addressing God being personal, powerful, and great: “He acknowledges God’s greatness because it will take a great God to accomplish what Daniel is about to request. He appeals to God’s personality because it will take a personal God to listen to the confession of multiple offenses and to react with mercy and grace” (McLain 277). Daniel ends his prayer with “Lord, listen!

Growing up so religiously has permanently forced Elie to look at life through a Jewish perspective. God has never truly left his consciousness. He says the prayer "Oh God, Master of the Universe, give me the strength never to do what Rabbi Eliahu’s son has done" even though he says "God in whom I no longer believed."

Although, through all that hardship, he recovers and that family bond can preserve sanity, and never to give up on life. When Elie endured all of this, usually people lose their sanity, but not Elie, for he had his father through most of it. This quote shows that without his father, the only family he had left, he was just an empty shell.

Many of his fellow soldiers and officers believed him to be a coward because of this, but each and every one of them were quickly enlightened after witnessing his brave and
