"The trees about the portal of the chapel moved soughingly in a soft wind. A sad silence was upon the little guarding edifice."

Churches have acted as a place of santuary for those in need for thousands of years. Churches are places of peace and protection, war should never enter its parameters.

This is from the last sentence in the chapter, you'll have to look up the page number in your copy.
