“But when our Lord told him to bear good tidings to all mankind, the hare was overcome with fear. ‘How shall I make them believe me?’. Then the Jesus Child asked the raven for the gift of one of his eggs. ‘Show them this egg,’ said our Lord ‘and say, “Just as the golden yolk shines in this egg, so the child who has come from heaven, has brought the light of the sun to the earth and the earth will not die but live anew”.’ Then the hare set forth upon his way with joy.”
