The Christmas rose, story about compassion for children
It was a winter night of a lot, very cold. The icy wind whistled loudly. The earth was frozen and covered with a thick layer of ice and snow. With a time like this, it was best to stay at home by the fireplace ...
Samuel, the young pastor, had heard people talk about the birth of a child in a stable quite close to his house. As it was such a cold day, he thought: poor baby, in a barn ... with this cold, it's going to freeze!
Samuel was born in summer, when the roses were blooming. Many people came with gifts the day he was born. Everyone wanted to meet him!

Samuel carried the flower in his hand. The little shepherd was very close to the newborn, and just as he leaned towards him, to give him his flower, a powerful ray of light illuminated the manger. The light, golden in color, came from the small for Samuel held in his hands. Since that day, that flower, which blooms every Christmas,
