UNIT 16

There is a church in Subiaco, Italy, where crows are
kept as pets. Any crow that comes to the church is wel-
come and for a very good reason.

About 1,400 years ago, the head of the church was
Saint Benedict. One day Saint Benedict was eating din-
ner. The bread on the table was poisoned, but Saint
Benedict didn't know it. Just as he was reaching for a
piece of the bread, a crow flew down and ate it. The crow
soon died, but it had saved Saint Benedict's life.

Saint Benedict was so grateful that he began keeping
crows as pets. Ever since that day, the church in
Subiaco, Italy, has kept crows as pets. UNIT 16<br><br> There is a church in Subiaco, Italy, where crows are<br> kept as pets.
