Chapter 21

FATHER WAS FOR PUNISHING ION SAVU PROPERLY. "That boy is a murderer," he said. But mother said that since Vasile was dead and his father had forgiven Ioan, we should thank God for his infinite mercy and wisdom. "God inspired the mountaineer to forgive this boy," she said.

"And who inspires me, Barbara, to want him punished?" father asked angrily.

"It will be the Lord, if you ask Him," mother said gently.

"O, good Lord, inspire me," father said, but there was no supplication in his tone of voice. He did not slam any of the doors, but by the time he got to the gate he could no longer observe the rule. He slammed the gate behind him.

Mother asked me about our procession and when I told her that teacher Vlad made a farewell speech, she praised him. And she said that it was a very sad happening but it was not an accident. "Everything that comes to pass is preordained, my dear little soul," she said. "Nothing, not a feather falling out of a bird's wing, is unknown to God."
