A children’s Easter Play was in the stage of preparation . The director was supervising the cast to make certain that each child would feel comfortable with his or her assigned role. One young lad was offered a speaking part, but he turned it down, saying, "I would rather play the part of the stone guarding the entrance to Jesus’ tomb."

The play went well and, when it was over, the director asked the boy if he had been happy with his non-speaking role. "Why did you want to play the stone?" she asked. With a big smile, the boy replied, "Because letting Jesus out of the tomb really felt good."
