A Quote by Allen Lacy on angels, christmas, jesus, legends, and pity

An angel, legend has it, took pity on a little shepherd girl who had nothing to give to the Infant Jesus in his manger. The angel handed her a weed, but first transformed it into this beautiful flower of winter. [- the Christmas rose, Helleborus niger.]
