Bishop is a non meterialistic, loving, all embracing, self sacrificing, caring, deeply religious, kind, generous, sensitive, optimist, calm, composed, charitable, prodigal, an ideal priest and a loving brother. He is a strong believer in God and his creations. He has a strong presence of mind and assessing the situation handles the problem quickly and aptly. Bishop's innocence and naivete often earns him the anger of his sister, Persome. But he gently remarks, "If people lie to me, they are poorer not I". His compassion changes the convict. He advices him to lead a good life as "this poor body is a temple of a living God".
