Once upon a time three men were going to visit Our Lord after he had gone to Egypt. As the three men passed this house a woman was sweeping the floor. She asked them where they were going. They said they were going to visit Our Lord. She told them to wait until she had swept the floor. The three men paid no heed to her but followed on their journey. When the woman had swept the floor she went out to see if the men were waiting but no sign of them could be seen.
