BROTHER BARTHOLOMEW ANDTHE
Honesdale, PA : Boyds Mills,
are eight monks living in the monastery. Each year, the monks spin
wool into sweaters, crush berries into jams and jellies and press apples
into applesauce. These were sold and the monks made enough money
to pay the bills. Brother Bartholomew was in charge of the apple
orchard and he was getting old. He sometimes forgot to close the
gate. He didn't repair the fence. And he didn't always pick
all the apples. As a matter of fact, the deer in the forest ate a
good share of the apples. But Brother Bartholomew always said "God
will provide" as he watched the beautiful deer from his chair. When
a young monk came to live in the monastery, he decided he could do a better
job with the apples than Brother Bartholomew did. Can you guess what
he will find?
