The Curate's Sister sobs decorously

Even the Curate can't suppress a single tear. Although you notice he catches it carefully in a handkerchief and burns the handkerchief as you leave. In any case, your shared emotion has brought you all a little closer.

Somehow, you seem to have condemned yourself to sitting through an epic celebration of the Seven Virtues. The voices of the Curate and his Sister both shake with emotion as they read. But it wasn't quite the emotion you had in mind.
