Chapter Two: The Host

"If thou shouldst never see my face again, pray for my soul. More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of. "   Alfred Lord Tennyson
 

    The local Host is a branch off of the Heretic Cult known as the Host.     They believe that the being people know as angels are actually  the dead adding the living.   Local Host members don't seem to make any assumptions of god's intent.       It is stated that through helping others the Host may in fact find salvation.  

Does God not reward good deeds?

Being under the Host's protection doesn't mean you must   join the "faith"    though over time many who have come to merely enjoy Father Eren's hospitality have joined his faith.
