It was perhaps an hour till the mass, as Aris excitedly came running into the living room and said that we should quickly go onto the balcony.

I had no idea what he wanted to show us, but suddenly above the old chapel on the hill above the church we saw a particular light star that only shone on the hill. Aris said: “I have been observing the stars for a long time, however, I have never seen one like this before.”

I added humorously: “Maybe this star is the Star of Bethlehem.”

My cousin said: “What do you think of, if we walk up the hill. It is about a quarter of an hour by foot and the mass won't start for another hour.”

Thaïs said: “Though for years no one has visited the old chapel. The door is probably locked.”

Aris replied: “Never mind, it's worth a try. Who is with me and will walk to the chapel?”
