Legend of the Salvation of Animals Old Sephora lived in the village of Bethlehem . H er main support was a herd of goats and a little o rchard of fig trees . When a young girl she had served as a maid in the h ouse of a priest, and so she was b etter informed with regard to religiou s things than m a id servan ts usually are. Afte rwards she had been married a mi had seve ral children , but had lost both hu sband and children . And then , w hil e being as helpful to her fellow man a s she was able, t he better part of he r affection s was bestowed o n an imal s. She tamed birds a nd mice; she gathered in lost d ogs and forlo rn cats, and her little house was full of t hese hu mble friends. She loved a nimals n ot only b ecau se they are innocent , becau se they becam e attached to those who love t hem , a n d because their fidelity is unequall ed , bu t also becau se s he was fill ed wit h a great spirit of justice. Sh e could not understand why a ny should suffer w ho a re incapable eith er of b eing wicked or of violating a law they knew n othing about . Sh e could

account pretty well for t he sufferings of mankind . From the teach ings of the priest she knew that everything does n ot end in a peaceful sleep, and that t he Messia h when he shou ld co m e was not si m p ly to establi sh t he earthly Kingdom of Israel. Th e Kingdom of H eaven would be t he reign of justice beyond the tomb. It wou ld com e ou t clearly in t hat unknow n world that m e-rited suffering was a punishment . And as for unmerited and frui t less sufferin g such as that of small children or certain unfortun at es who have sinned onl y in a small way, t hat would seem to have been n ot hing but a bad dream , and would be m a d e up b y at least an equ al sum of felicity . But how abou t suffering a nimals? Th ose dying slowly of cruel d iseases, like m en , giv in g you a kind loo k out of t heir p aticn t ey es? H ow about dogs w h osE' affection s are sco rn ed , or t h ose w ho love their m aster a nd pine away from grief? How abo ut horses whose long days a re fi lled with


STUDENT LIFE panting efforts , weariness a nd blows and whose rest, even , is so c heerless in the darkness of their little stalls? H ow about wil d beasts imprison ed in cages? H ow about all those poor anim als whose life is one long, hopeless suffering and who have n ot eve n a voice to let u s know what they are enduring or to relieve themselves "\lith in curses? What is the use of t heir suffering? What a re they paying for? What reward may th ey ex.pect? Seph ora was a ver y simple old wo man. but b ecause she was naively thirsty for justice she po nd ered all th ese t hings in her heart ; and the t hought of t hi s unexplainable evil dulled for her the beauty of t he day lig ht and t he exq ui site coloring of t he J lld ea n hill s. When her ne ig hbors cam e and told her, " Th e lVl essia h is born. An angel a nn o un ced him to us last night. H e is in a st a b le a q uarter of a league away and \\' e h ave b een worsh iping him ," old Sephora rep lied , "Now, we'll see" and she kn ew w hat she was th inking abo ut. That ev ening afte r having cared for her goats alld oth er anim als, a nd having ca ressed them all, she started out for the wonderful stable. In t he soft , ench a nted light of th e eve ning, trees, rocks ,

and p lain , even the spears of grass seem ed motionless with happiness. You would have said t h at the earth was taking a delicious rest. But old Sephora did not forget t hat at that v ery m om ent sick people were tossing on their h ot beds , travelers were being robbed o n the highway, moth ers were weeping for the loss of their little on es, and animals were suffering without knowing why. She saw before her a light , soft and yet so bri ght t hat the moonli g h t was pale besid e it. This li g ht cam e from the stable which was dug in th e natural rock in the side of a h iJ 1. Near the entrance ca m els we re sleeping, their legs t u cked up under them, in the midst of heap s of carved or pain ted vases, of bas kets of fruit , of heavy ru gs roll ed o u t full len gt h , and of jewel boxes whose contents sparkl ed \\路o nderfully. " Wh at is all t hi s '''asked the old wom a n . " The kings have com e," repli ed a man . " Kin gs," said Seph ora with a frown.




She went into t he stable, saw t he child in a manger surrounded by Mary and J oseph , the three kings, shepherds and laborers with thei r wives a nd sons and



daughters , and in a corner . an ox and a donkey. "Let's see what is going to happen," said she. The three 1<ings went up to the Child and the shepherds withdrew politely before them. But the c hild motioned to the shepherds to come near. Old Sephora did not stir. The Child put Hi s li ttle hand fi rst on the head of the wom en and girls bec ause they are better than th e men and suffer Jl1nre , then upon the men themselves and the bo ys. And Mary said to them, "Be patient. He loves you and has com e to suffer with you." Then the white king th oug ht his t urn had com e, but th e Child with a gentle movement of the hand, called first the blac k king and th en th e yellow. Th e blac k king wit h his woolly, oil y hair and broad negro grin cam e up a nd offered the newly-born necklaces of fish bones, bright colo red stones, dates and cocoa nuts . And Mary said to him , "You a re not wicked, only ignorant. Try to imagine what you would be if yo u were not kin g in yo ur country . Don ' t eat m en anymore or beat your subjects any more." The yell ow slantin g-eyed king

offered embroidered silk s, carved Ivory, p orcelain cups and sacks of tea. And Mary said to him , " Don ' t hide your people any longer. D on 't think that all wisdom is found in you and yo ur race. And take care of those who have nothing but bad rice to eat ." Th e white king tn military dress offered the Child go ld of fine workmanship, beautifully \\Tought armor. statues and pur ple bags contain ing the writings of a ce rtai n Plato. And Mary said to him , " D o not carryon unju st wars. Avoid pleasures that hard en t he heart. Make ju st laws and re member how im portan tit is for all and for you rself that no one be maltreated in yo ur kingdom. " Then the Child blessed t he shep herds , laborers and kings in the order in which he had called them to Him .

* * *

Old Sephora thought to herself, "That order is sensible. The Chi ld b egan with those who most need him. You can see that he thin ks of justice and that he will establish its reign , eith er in th is wo rl d o r in another." Hi s moth e r , tou, talked very well. All the sam e he didn't


STUDENT LIFE think of everything. IVh a1 will he do for anima ls?" But Mary hcard her though. She turned to the chil d and the child turned toward the ox and the donkey.

* * *

The donkey, thin and overworked, the ox, fat and mournful , went up to the manger and sniffed the straw on which J esus lay. The Child put one hand on the nose of the ox and with his other hand He softly pinched one of

the donkey's ears. And the ox seemed to smile a nd from the eyes of the donkey rolled out two tears and sank in his coarse hair. At th(; same t ime one of the camels outside came softly into the stable and stretched out confidingly his head toward the Child.

* * *

Old Sephora knew what that meant and that there is a paradise for suffering animals, too. And then she also went up to the Child -LemlLitre

The Salt L a ke boys cam e to L ogan expecting to do as well as the Ogd en boys did. Th is h ope soon vanished, for from the first whistle until the last, the Salt L a keers were entirely outclassed.
