The Poor Boy in the Snow

In Poland on a cold winter morning, three children were walking to Church.It was very cold and they were trembling because, being very poor, they were not wearing warm clothes ; moreover, their shoes were very bad and thin, and their feet were as cold as the frozen snow on which they were walking.

One of them, a little boy about seven years old, was weeping. His older sister, who was with him, knew that he wept because he was cold ; so she said kindly to him : ” Go home and mother will make you warm ; it is too cold to-day for you to come with us. God will not be angry with you for staying away from Church on such a cold day as this.”

But the child said : ” No, no ; even if I am freezing, I want to go with you to learn more about God and the way to Heaven.” And he went along with them.
