Hi there!

First things first, I wanted to say how pleased and surprised I was to see Zatara's faith not only not avoided but leaned into in the episode "Teg Ydear!"

As a Christian, it's become quite rare to see Christianity portrayed even neutrally in popular media. That scene literally brought tears.

My question are these:

1) Why was the Lord's Prayer shortened to omit "For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever"?

2) I've heard it said that a Muslim cultural expert was consulted to ensure Khalid's faith was accurately and sensitively portrayed. Was a similar expert consulted for the representations of Catholocism in this episode and the next?

I want to stress that that scene was beautiful and was and is greatly appreciated. Thank you for not shying away from it.
