Description

N'oublie surtout pas, Pétunia, que, sans l'âne, l'enfant n'aurait pu arriver à Bethléem, que, sans la vache qui a offert sa mangeoire, il n'aurait pas eu de couche et que, sans l'agneau, il n'aurait pu se couvrir d'une douce toison pour se tenir au chaud! Et Noël n'existerait pas! Et les cochons, alors? Pétunia quitte l'étable, lourde de peine : elle ne reviendra jamais! Elle brave la tempête; il fait si froid! Mais voilà qu'elle aperçoit une femme qui serre son enfant tout contre elle et qui avance péniblement contre le vent. Aurait-elle besoin d'un endroit chaud et douillet pour se reposer? N'écoutant que son courage, Pétunia la guide jusqu'à l'étable, mais les animaux sont réticents à réconforter un bébé ordinaire, alors que leurs ancêtres, eux, avait pris soin de l'enfant Jésus lui-même! C'est à Pétunia de montrer aux animaux qu'aucun bébé n'est ordinaire, et c'est aux animaux de montrer à Pétunia que, sans elle, ils n'auraient jamais compris le vrai sens de la fête de Noël.
