The long-awaited introduction of Lily.

(In spite of her name, the “flowers” on her headdress are dogwood blooms, which are symbolically associated with Easter.)

Man: Let us thank the Lord for this bounty while our dear sister Lily does the honors.

I say “sister,” but that should properly be “half-sister.” As a Fallen Being, our Lily is the child of a human and an angel. We are humbled and honored to have her share her grace with us.

All: Our Father, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Timothy (thinking): I hope this doesn’t hurt her.

All: Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done . . .

Sparrow: Oh, so it’s that kind of story.

Bianca: Mm. Can Patrick really be a nephilim?

Sparrow: “Naphil.” And I hope not, because that would seriously screw with my atheism.
