"A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings"

How does the priest respond to the man with wings? What do you think his response symbolizes?

Answer: The priest response to the man with wings is of suspension. He feels that he could be an impostor because he doesn't understand the language of God or know how to greet His ministers. I think his response symbolizes that the old man isn't an angel but he is magical in some way.

    This seems good -- but do you mean "suspension" or "suspicion?"
