LEGEND OF THE POINSETTIA
Long ago on Christmas Eve a little girl knelt to pray beside the manger at the chapel where Jesus' gifts were on display. She looked sad, without a gift to honor the newborn king. Just then an Angel appeared and said "I have a gift for you to bring." She gathered an armful of leaves as the Angel told her to do. Lo and behold, before her eyes, the leaves turned to a reddish hue: Now each year at Christmastime Poinsettias bloom everywhere. Known as the "Flower of the Holy Night". The miracle from one small prayer.
