"Birmingham, I play piano and I sing -"

Both Michael's parents smile at him exasperatedly. Finis holds Catherine up in the air. "One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten," he tells her seriously. "One and one is two, one and two is three, two and three is five, three and five is eight..."

"Nga," says Catherine.

He endeavors to imitate the sound, can't quite do it.

Rebecca giggles, only a little awkwardly.

Finis is trying in Latin now. "Children learn languages better while they're little, you know."

Permalink

"I didn't know that."

"Up until they're eleven or twelve or so, then it gets harder. Of course, by then she'll speak Latin and Greek and French and English at the very least - maybe some Italian, Italian is a lovely language -"

Permalink

"I only know English and a little Church Latin..."

Permalink

"Church Latin?"

Permalink

"I think it's different from - scholar Latin somehow? In nòmine Patris, et Fìlii, et Spìritus Sancti, like that."

Permalink

He echoes her. "Well, she can learn both - and we can all pick up the kind you're familiar with -"

"Will your church recognize a wizarding marriage?" Nell asks.

Permalink

"Oh, my church won't actually let me get married any more, I ran away from a convent, so it doesn't matter."

Permalink

"Which church is this?" Finis asks between murmuring at Catherine in Latin.

Permalink

"The Catholic church."

Permalink

"Are Muggle religions more of a social institution or more about the belief content, for the laity -"

Permalink

"I, um - I think half the laity barely know the difference honestly but if you don't actually care you convert to Protestantism, this country this era -"

Permalink

"So you do actually care? What are the relevant beliefs -"

Permalink

"...how much I care is complicated?"

Permalink

Finis looks thoroughly undeterred!

Permalink

"I'm not a very good Catholic. At all. But it's important to me that I don't just go, oh, okay, I'm not very good at this, I guess I'll forget about it..."

Permalink

"What makes someone a good Catholic? Do you want to be one?"

Permalink

"Well, no, I'm not very good at it because I don't like doing a lot of the things I'm supposed to," says Rebecca. "But I want to be better at it than I would be by accident if I'd never heard of it before, I guess."

Permalink

She blinks. "I'm.... not sure? I think that's as far down as it goes."
