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]
