The Tale of Jack O'Lantern
A Read-aloud Story from Catholic Update
"Jack, the Irish say, grew up in a simple village where he earned a reputation for cleverness as well as laziness. He applied his fine intelligence to wiggling out of any work that was asked of him, preferring to lie under a solitary oak endlessly whittling.

In his whole life he never made a single enemy, never made a single friend and never performed a selfless act for anyone."
