  2. Once upon a time there was a shepherd boy herding sheep on the mountains and he never used to go to Mass. He always prayed on the mountain. One Sunday morning he saw a crowd of people going to Mass and he went in the direction that they were going. He followed them into the chapel and when he went in he saw a sunbeam shining on the window, and off he went and left his coat hanging on it. When Mass was over the priest said "Whoever that coat belongs to come here after Mass, I want him." The boy went to the priest and he told him he never committed a sin in his life. Then the boy ran away again to the mountain to herd the sheep again. On his way back from mass he saw two boys fighting and he stood watching them for a long time.
