Parish Priest: It was a surprise for us

– It was a surprise for us, because we borrowed this donkey for the nativity scene from a certain gentleman. He said that she was pregnant, but I think she will only foal in March, so no one expected it now – says the parish priest in Świny near Koluszki, priest Jarosław Życki. – Last Saturday (January 7) I go to Christmas carols, and someone calls me to say that the childbirth in the crib is about to begin. I called parishioners who take care of horses. They came, they picked up and everything is fine. A little donkey was born, the priest added.

A name for a donkey and crowds of visitors

– The day after the birthday, there were a lot of people at the nativity scene, lots of children. Probably about a thousand people passed through our nativity scene. This is an attraction – and as we know in horses or zebras – this little one stands on his feet right away, his mother feeds him and it looks beautiful – says priest Jarosław Życki. She adds that there is an informal competition for the name of the little donkey. – The children are already telling me that it should be Christmas, maybe Matilda. There are various proposals and we will probably decide soon – says the parish priest in Świny near Koluszki.
