Baby found in manger

The Curt Jester carries the story of a German priest who was astonished to discover a newborn baby in the manger of the nativity scene he had recently put up in his church. He took care of the baby until an ambulance arrived and the little one is doing well at a local hospital. The mother turned out to be a Romanian woman who left the baby in the church in the hope that someone would be able to take better care of him.

The priest said that the parish was ready to help the lady and that she must be in a very difficult situation, but that she needs to be left in peace whilst she decides what to do.
