Maggie ran to her mother shouting, "Mom, somebody broke the eggs."
"What eggs?" asked her mom.
Maggie explained, "Last week, I saw a nest with eggs. This morning there were only pieces of the shells."
Mother, knowing what had happened, took hold of her daughter's hand and they both went to the nest. "Nobody broke the eggs dear. What happened is that there were baby sparrows inside these eggs. When these babies grew bigger, the eggs split open and baby sparrows came out and flew away", mother said.
Maggie was very happy as she watched little sparrows jump from branch to branch.
As we remember our loved ones who died we say to them, "You have departed from your bodies, which wore away in the tombs, as you flew away into Paradise to rejoice with all the heavenly hosts.”
