This is “and said Don’t dishonour the family name”, Victor is told from a very young age to respect the bible, however his father uses violence to enforce this.

Derek works for my church, and he never thought he would work it. He was just looking for a job and it was the only one open. I asked him what religion he would be if he couldn 't be Catholic and he said “ I would rather be Atheist because I think that Catholicism is the highest and I rather not be the lower of the religions.” He also said that he was placed into this religion by his parents, and he would always stay in it for the rest of his
As the rite progressed, the altar servers delivered the oil of Chrism, the matter of the Sacrament, to Cardinal DiNardo for preparation.
