||Your adoptive father, Lord Lonato, had connections to the Western Church. I understand that you want answers. But our objective is to punish, not to investigate. We can't let you jeopardize the mission.
Falling Short of Heaven (Japanese: ともに天を戴かず Neither Side submits to Heaven’s Rule) is a paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is available from Chapter 9 to Chapter 11. In order to attempt this paralogue, the player must have recruited Ashe or Catherine and neither one must have fallen in battle previously.

Catherine asks Byleth and their students to accompany Rhea and the Knights of Seiros to subdue the Western Church and execute their bishop. Ashe overhears the conversation and begs to accompany them, bent on getting revenge for their role in Lonato's death. Byleth agrees, and the group sets out for the Western Church's territory. However, the Western Church ambushes them using a fog as cover. The Knights of Seiros and Byleth's class manages to drive off the enemies and slay the bishop. Afterwards, Catherine sends Byleth back to Garreg Mach Monastery while she and Rhea handle the cleanup and install a new bishop. Ashe reveals he has been given some papers regarding his family.
When Catherine and the Knights of Seiros ride out to seek retribution against the Western Church for their attack on the archbishop, Ashe is eager to accompany them.

Rhea is basically capable of sitting still and taking care of herself, so set out into the fog and take the fight to the Western Church. Split your forces into hunter-killer pairs - one guy goes into the fog to scout out the enemy, and the other darts in and kills them. Buying Torches or using the one dropped by an enemy Mage makes your life much easier. Be very careful when dealing with the Assassins in the northwest corner, as they are extremely fast and can rip you apart if you are too reckless. You can always use Divine Pulse to undo problems that arise from you getting hit from the fog.
