So was Lucy dying in her sleep the preferable option? Van Helsing only said that it mattered to the fate of her soul if she died awake or sleeping, now which one was better for her soul.
Well, here is a half-serious theory on why van Helsing thinks dying in her sleep was better. It is based on two facts kinda established by the story so far:
1. If a person in the process of becoming a vampire dies in their sleep, as a vampire they are in a dreamlike state.
2. Van Helsing is Catholic.
If a vampirized person died sleeping, they are in a dreamlike state as a vampire. They still nom on people, but they aren’t in control of it, it is an involuntary action. Therefore they are not responsible for it in the eyes of God. If they die, they can still go to heaven.
If a vampirized person died awake, they are fully in control as a vampire. But they have this urge to drink blood, and that is a temptation they are unfamiliar with. Very, very likely they will decide to act on it. Which (in van Helsing’s view at least) is a mortal sin. But since vampires are repelled by sacred objects, they cannot enter a church to go to confession. So if you kill them, they die in a state of mortal sin and go to hell.

Isn't the point of Biblical faith that God has chosen to be at home not among angels but among humans?
- James Carroll (Constantine's Sword: The Church and the Jews – A History, page 114). Bolded emphases added.

Tired: finding a sealed tomb from Egypt or some other non white culture and declaring it cursed

Pope Francis thanks Polish people for opening homes to Ukrainians fleeing war:
"I cordially greet all Poles. You were the first to support Ukraine by opening your borders, your hearts and the doors of your homes to Ukrainians fleeing the war. You are generously offering them everything they need so that they can live in dignity, despite the drama of the moment. I am deeply grateful to you and I bless you from my heart!"

Okay hear me out, 2000's First Gen Catholic Aesthetic, or is that just getting too specific?
I can't be the only one who experienced this.

The ancient statue of Christ Crucified being taken out of the Armenian Catholic Cathedral of Lviv, the historic capital of Galicia, now in western Ukraine, to be stored in a bunker for protection. The last time it was taken out was during WW2.
