MIRACLE OF THE THORN STAFF
Pretty Legend of Ancient Britain
That Is Often Repeated In Eng
land at Christmas Time.
It Is one of the prettiest legends of
ancient Britain-the old Christmas
story of the thorn of Glastonbury.
Willia inof Malinesbury, the chronicler,
told It hundreds of years ago in his
"Antiques of Glastonbury." It Is re
Peatedl often it Christmas time In
The legend tells how Joseph of Ar
Inathet, was so persecuted by Pontius
Pilate, because he had laid away the
body of Christ in his sepullllhe, that
lie tled to Gaul, carrying with him un
dler a cloth of mystical white sanmlte,
the Holy Grail. In Gaul he found the
Apostle Philip, preaching to the heath
en, and1 he rested with him a few days.
One night a radiant light awakened
himn, and an angel bade him go to
Britain and preach the glal tidings to
King Arvigatrus; and, where a Christ
inas miracle should corne to pass,
there to build a church.
Ile and a banl of followers fol
lowed the Instructions of the angel,
and Arvigtgrus gave them the Isle of
Avalon, and bade them erect an altar
there to the new God. It was a beau
tiful gift. The tiny Isle lay warin In
a verdant valley. Sparkling wave#
softly lapped its shore. Soft breezes
played In its trees, and nowhere was
the sky so blue as over Avalon.
When they reached the )top of the
hill called Weary All, Joseph planted
his thorn staff he hadl carried with
him on his long Journeys over land
and sea, dleep Into the ground, and l
It took root, andi immediately there
