[All right, so no matter what the future has to say about whether or not it's sinful to be in love with someone of the same sex, Poland is pretty damn sure that it's not ever okay to be married and all... chasing after someone else!]

[And it's not just the Catholicism hitting him with guilt, this time. The way Liet looked at him--he's been there, a million times over all the years, and for some reason... The one time Liet wanted his attention and faithfulness, it wasn't there. The one time Liet's ever felt what he feels all the time, he couldn't be there for him.]

[So he's out in the stables--that is, where he goes for privacy-- kneeling on a low stool in the corner with his rosary in hand. Just because there are no priests here doesn't mean he can't pray, or that he won't, whether for routine or for comfort.]

--quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo, ópere et omissióne:
mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa.
Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem,
omnes Angelos et Sanctos, et vos, fratres

((OOC: Shit, son, the Latin usage just gets more gratuitous (and Google Translate-based on at least one end) from here :D ))

[Poland, dressed in his 15th century Sunday best, is in a smallish room bedecked with candles and crosses. Today, it's also decorated with white cloth hangings and flowers everywhere. After all that Lenten fasting, it appears he was able to will his room to have a chapel attached!]

So, um. I know not everyone here is Christian, but... Today's a really important day for those of us who are, and I kinda wanted to share that with people. So like, I wanted to start the day with a reading from Matthew for everyone! And Liet and I have been making tons of sweets and pisanki for today, if anyone wants to come hang out and help us eat them...

But first things first~ [He crosses himself, then picks up a huge, leather-bound Bible with vellum pages, flipping it open to a page he'd marked and beginning to read aloud. His Latin accent is actually pretty good, because he's had a LOT of practice since his baptism over 400 years ago.]

A lesson from the Gospel of Matthew:

Cut OOC for length and gratuitous Latin, because LOL, pre-printing press!Catholics wouldn't be reading the Bible in their native language ;;; )

[He closes the Bible, and holds it up in front of him with a reverent little bow.]

The Gospel of the Lord. Thanks be to God!

[Setting the Bible aside, he gives the camera a happy smile.]

Alleluia, Christ is risen! Happy Easter, everyone ♥

[OOC: I'm... not Catholic, so there are more or less guaranteed to be little errors here. But I tried! And happy Easter to everyone from the mun, too, while I'm OOC note-ing~]
