Story of a very generous angel in A Perfect Christmas
Claudio was delighted with the cast. Of all the things that had to be prepared for the birth of Jesus, he had played 'The loudspeaker'. And it was not just any speaker, it was the speaker through which the voices of the angels and of God himself would be heard directly from Heaven to Earth. To be a normal little angel he had been very lucky, because most important things had been entrusted to the impressive and magnificent archangels and other higher level angels. But as everyone knew that Claudio, besides being a charming little angel, was crazy about technology, they thought it would be the best way to invent such a complex device.
Claudio had a thousand ideas in his head for the design, and he went to work immediately. But when he was only a little while away, Rafael appeared, one of his favorite archangels. ¿- Can you give us a hand with the palace, Claudio? We need a door that opens automatically to the passage of Mary and Joseph.
- Sure! - He said as willing as always - What I'm doing can wait.
Several days took the little angel to complete the difficult door, and many more to go completing the many inventions that Rafael continued asking him. But the result was worth it: they built a palace worthy of the greatest of kings that was to tread the earth. So much so, that when no one was looking, the angels looked out from the sky to admire it.
Claudio was back to put on his speaker when the archangel Miguel saw him in the distance.
- Claudio, please can you help us with some wardrobe alterations? We want that when the chants of the choir sound the dresses of those who listen to them shine with gold, precious stones and colored lights, and that the clothes of María, José and El Niño ripple to the rhythm of the music.
- What a great idea, Miguel! That will be great. I'm going to help you right away.
It also took several days to complete all those costume effects, but they could not have done something prettier. Angels came from all corners of the universe to contemplate that wonder and congratulate Miguel effusively.
Gabriel also asked Claudio to help him with the effects of light and sound for the celestial choir. And then came the cherubs with their thousand requests, and another pile of angels of higher levels with orders so important that Claudius could not help but help them. And everything was so perfect and wonderful, that the angels congratulated each other very satisfied and proud, and that same night, the one before the birth, they celebrated a great party.
But Claudio could not attend, because after so much work, he remembered that his own assignment, the speaker, was not even started yet!
Claudio was left alone working in a hurry on his loudspeaker, listening to the music of the party in the background. He worked with tears in his eyes, knowing that he was not going to arrive in time, and then God himself appeared at his side.
- Hello, my dear Claudio, what are you doing here that you are not at the party?
The little angel, embarrassed, only showed his speaker half done and his eyes full of tears.
- I see. I know you were busy helping others, but is not anyone coming to help you?
- Well, they are celebrating a great party and they deserve it- Claudio answered-. They have worked hard and everything has been magnificent. Also, they could not help me even if they wanted to, this invention is very complicated.
- Hmmmm- was the only thing that God said while he turned around. He did not seem especially happy.
Claudio was terrified. He knew that he would only arrive on time if God decided to help him, but he was dying of shame to ask him. As if reading his thoughts, God turned to tell him:
- Well, do the best you can. But above all, it sounds strong.
Claudio did not have time. It was just the time when he finished joining all the pieces, and came to his place by the hair, at the same time that Gabriel gave the signal to start. The chorus clarified their voices and, for a second, everyone fixed their eyes on Claudio. The little angel closed them, said a prayer, and turned on the speaker at full power.
A tremendous explosion shook the sky, which opened to give access to the earth and transmit the song of the angels. But the force of the explosion was so great that it spread like an earthquake and a hurricane over the earth, destroying everything they had prepared: the palace collapsed and only the remains of some walls remained; the place appeared cold, uncomfortable, dirty and messy, and even the beautiful dresses of all those who would see the child flew through the air and became rags. In a few seconds, the only thing that remained of everything they had prepared was the voices of the celestial choir, and a bright flash in the sky, that of the great speaker that burned slowly. Nobody in heaven dared to say anything. They only looked at the ashamed Claudius with grief and disappointment, embarrassed themselves for having left him alone. But then the Child was born, and instead of the crying that everyone expected, a joyful laughter flooded the sky and the earth. A laugh that spread to everyone, and that made them know that God was delighted with that preparation, much poorer, but made by Claudio by helping others forget about their problems. And as if they expected something like that to happen, the three archangels whispered to themselves: 'This is the style of the Lord. Everything has gone perfect. '
