Williams on Adam and Eve

They had what they wanted. That they did not like it when they got it does not alter the fact that they certainly got it.

Charles Williams -– ‘He Came Down From Heaven’

“Father Adam, come in; here is your child,
Here is the Son of Man, here is Paradise.
To-day everything begins again”

[ADAM goes down to the door of the stable]

Mary [meeting him and genuflecting]:
“Bless me, father: see how to-morrow is also now”

Adam [Making the sign of the Cross]:
Under the Protection!
Peace to you, and to all; good will to men

[They go into the stable]

Charles Williams -– ‘Seed of Adam’
