… 7 And, behold, three of them went that same day along the way, in the desert, far removed from the city. 8 And they did meet and make camp and reason together about the fire. 9 For darkness threatened and unknown beasts did cry in the midst of the thunder. 10 And it came to pass that while they communed thus, lightning struck near, and a traveler, approaching nigh unto them, did ask: 11 What manner of speech is this that ye commune thus, and are sad, and afraid? 12 And one of them spoke and said, Art thou only a stranger here, and knowest thou not the things which have come to pass? 13 (For they spoke of song, and of one, who was mighty in song, gone from among them.) 14 But the traveler, tarrying awhile, expounded unto them all manner of things they should know concerning music, and they were comforted. 15 And he made as though he would go from among them, but they constrained him, saying, Abide with us, for the day is far spent. 16 And he tarried with them, and did play some, and their eyes were opened, and they saw. 17 And seeing their eyes opened the traveler said: I am he of whom the beasts cry; I am the Jackalope Saint. 18 And he charged them that they play, and they straightway left and played. … San Sal 4:7-18
