* GodsHandsAreTied: Here's the thing. The five gods hold absolute power over the realm of spirit. Souls can be manipulated by them as easily as a human being manipulates matter.

Most people aren't psychologically capable of yielding so utterly even if they want to, and the moments of surrender happen under painful/traumatic circumstances, which is one reason why many saints tend to be just a little bit ''strange''.
