Party of Five Season 1, Episode 2 | Lucia Visits The Family Priest | Freeform


Padre Jiménez? Padre? I never see you. Now it seems like you can’t wait. Thanks a lot for telling on me to my mother. I didn’t. She asked and I said she should talk to you. Though, for the future, if you want someone to lie for you, you should probably choose someone other than a priest. You don’t seem to have a problem lying to my sister. Hm? Why would you tell her that a prayer is going to bring our parents back? Lucia— She’s scared. And you’re selling her on some — forgive me — bullshit miracle. Giving her hope when there isn’t any. I never told your sister that prayers would bring your parents back. And you and I both know that nothing will bring your parents back except that changing what this country believes. All a 12-year-old can do is hope for that. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t. But if it does and Val thinks she nudged it along just a bit … then what’s the harm in that? I don’t think you’re angry at her for praying. I think maybe you’re angry that she might find some peace in prayer, when you have none. And I’m happy to talk to you about that whenever you want, Lucia.
