Michael knows what he is about, even if the rest of the world doesn’t. “Redeeming Love” is a story of God’s unconditional love. Michael Hosea plays the role of Hosea from the Old Testament.
For it is true that I am only a poor man; I am not worthy of being there where you send me; pardon me, my Xocoyota, I do not wish to make your noble heart sad; I do not want to fall into your displeasure" (De La Cruz 199). Virgin of Guadalupe simply believed otherwise "Hear me, my son, it is true that I do not lack for servants or ambassadors to whom I could entrust my message so that my will could be verified, but it is important that you speak for me in this matter, weary as you are; in your hands you have the means of verifying, of making plain my desire my will" (De La Cruz 199). What the Virgin really desired was humility someone who would put himself or herself last in order to keep someone else happy, or give them what
We never quarrel about religion.” “Brother, the Great Spirit has made us all, but He had made a great difference between his white and red children.

The Fool enters the play while Cordelia exits, which most Shakespearean scholars suggest that the Fool is a spiritual twin that connects with Cordelia-“Prithee, nuncle, keep a schoolmaster that can teach thy fool/to lie: I would fain to learn to lie”-because he leads Lear onto the road of sanity and truth and when Cordelia reenters she represents his heart and sanity that have been reborn-“Ay, madam; in the heaviness of his sleep/we put fresh garments on him.” However, when the Fool enters the play, he wastes no time and reminds Lear of “nothing.” Indeed, there is a subversion of values, by dividing his kingdom he has become the “all licens’d Fool.” The Fool also tells Lear that he has become “an O without a figure,” because he has given away his scepter, his rod-which represents his manhood-and his whip which suggest that he has become the child to his daughters. The Fool like Edmund is a luminal character because he is sui generis. He cannot be labeled because he is a wise man and a Fool. Throughout the play he is marginalized because he is a Fool, but since he is the Fool no one pays attention to him and he uses this title as an advantage to speak of the truth.
