'*San Pedro and the Devil*'

San Pedro and the Devil
(Mexico)

Jesucristo had many apostoles and prophets. The Devil was constantly trying to tempt. Jesucristo would help the and give them advice.

One day San Pedro was standing by a big cottonwood tree. The Devil came up to him and said, "I hear that you are very powerfull. I, also, am very strong. If you can strike this tree with your fist so that your hand goes through the trunk from one side to another, i will admit that you are stronger then me."

"Very well," said San Pedro, "but not right now senor. Tomorrow."

Jesucristo came to the spot and San Pedro consulted with him. Jesucristo bored a hole through the tree trunk and then covered up all evidence of it.

The next day jesucristo appeared at the contest and volunteered to act as judge. He tapped the trunk and showed the contestants where to strike.

First he tapped a solid place and said to the Devil, "You try first."

The Devil struck the tree trunk and his hand entered only few inches. The San Pedro struck the trunk on the spot indicated by Jesucristo. His arm went all the way through.

But the Devil was stubborn and always came back to try again. One day he said to San Pedro, "I will bring two spears and we will contest to see which of us can throw one the farthest toward the other side of the sea."

"Good, we will meet tomorrow," said San Pedro. Then he consulted with Jesucristo.

On the hour, the Devil appeared before San Pedro with two spears. The two stood on the seashore ready to throw. But when the Devil raised his spear, it spoke, saying, "Spear, go to France and enter the body of the mother of the Devil!"

"No, no!" said the Devil, lowering his arm and letting the spear fall to the ground. So again Devil lost.

Another day the Devil said San Pedro, "Come here. The one who throws a rock the farthest toward that island on the other side of the sea wins."

San Pedro agreed. Jesucristo helped him. When they were both standing ready, the Devil reached down and picked up the stone. San Pedro reached into his pocket and pulled out something.

"Are you ready?" asked the Devil.

"Yes," replied San Pedro. Together they throw. The Devil's rock fell into the seabot, San Pedro's disappeared far into the distance. It was a little gray quail.

"Again you win over me!" he said.
