Brother Rafael and the Rainy-Day Devils
Ages 7 and up
Brother Rafael heard a voice speak to his heart. It was not like the cackling of the red devils—causing confusion, sadness, and regret. This voice was gentle, curious, eager for a conversation.
“What are you doing?” asked the voice.
“What do you mean, what am I doing?” asked Brother Rafael—inwardly, of course, so as not to disturb his brothers. “Lord, what a question! I’m peeling turnips.”
“But why are you peeling turnips?”
It’s cold and rainy outside, and inside the monastery kitchen Brother Rafael is having a bad day. Pestered by gloomy thoughts, he is becoming discouraged. What does he do to let in the light and the warmth he needs? He turns to Jesus.
