An excerpt from the book:

“Although Bashir was converted to Catholicism, he still had inclinations toward his Spiritism background. It was somewhat amusing to see him making the sign of the cross on his chest as he recounted the dreadful demise of the orphanage and the Nuns inside. In the same breadth he tried to convince me that the Spirit was with him and it caused him to leave the orphanage at the time he did so that he could escape the fire.”
