After problems have been made by other civilians about his actions, the bishop needed to choose either let Daddy Dowling waste too much of his own money or call the cops on Midge and Ronnie. The Bishop feels that if he calls the cops for unlawfully offering their bodies, Dad Dowling would stop acting so absurd. Midge and Ronnie have been arrested without Daddy Dowling noticing they were forced for imprisonment or leaving the city and never ever returning. “I’m going to offer you ladies to the till this afternoon some time to leave town.
You must never ever return here once again, or you’ll be nabbed simultaneously. Do you hear? Take them away now” (Callaghan 152), so they had no option however to leave, without providing Dad Dowling any authorization. The 2 ladies didn’t wish to let dad Dowling down, by telling him that they were arrested so they chose to leave the city. Daddy Dowling felt he let the ladies down, when he discovered they had actually been jailed. He couldn’t get his love for them out of his body, the bishop attempted to assist Daddy Dowling restore his balance and life back from anxiety and unhappiness, however the only method to repair that was to discover the girls.
Father Dowling revealed gratefulness and compassion to the two ladies because he liked them quite and he established his feeling for them throughout the chapters, and wanted to help them with all he could.

Dad Dowling put his love for the ladies, his church, and religion prior to his own life.
He felt he let the women down, and he went nuts since the women were gone and his objectives of himself thinking he can change people’s lives were gone since he could not even change/persuade them (Midget and Ronnie) into sticking with him, this quote let out his desperation to discover Midget and Ronnie,(when he started to talk with himself) “He recognized that he seethed from fretting about Ronnie and Midget, however his concern and love for them now appeared stronger than ever prior to ‘It needs to all be to some purpose’ It must be beneficial, even my insanity. It has some significance, some end”.
