ok this isnt nessacarily for the owl but it relates to ultima if that helps...

*"she understood that as i grew, i would gave to choose to be my mothers priest of my fathers son."
thats on pg. 41

*"but how could the blessing of ultima be like the whirlwind? was the power of good and evil the same?"
pg. 55

*"ultima's spirit bathed me with it's strong resolution"
pg. 23

*"The orange of the golden carp appeared at the edge of the pond. . . . We watched in silence at the beauty and grandeur of the great fish. Out of the corners of my eyes I saw Cico hold his hand to his breast as the golden carp glided by. Then with a switch of his powerful tail the golden carp disappeared into the shadowy water under the thicket."
not sure what page but its in chapter 11

*" God had power, he spoke and the thunder echoed through the skies; God was not always forgiving, but the Virgin was full of a quiet, peaceful love."
ya and not sure what chapter or page i just wrote it down
