Jack visited his friend the farmer. As they passed by the chicken house, they saw an eagle eating with the chickens. Jack asked, "Isn't the eagle supposed to fly?"
The farmer answered, "This eagle forgot his first nature as an eagle. Now it lives and eats with the chickens."
Jack then asked if he could try to get the eagle fly. The farmer agreed spontaneously saying, "Do whatever you want with it."
Jack took the young eagle to a hill and let it go but the eagle glided for a few moments and returned to the ground. It went down to the farm and then walked as if it was a chicken towards the chicken hall. The very same thing happened when Jack tried a second time.
On the third attempt, the eagle majestically spread its wings, gave a very loud cry and flew away into the sky. It never went back to the chicken hall to eat with them again.
O Lord, remind me that I am an eagle.
I can lift up my heart to heaven.
Because I am Your son and the temple of Your Holy Spirit.
May my soul be lifted up and soar in the heavens.
The Eggs were Broken
