Once a man went into a chapel to pray. It was in the evening and he fell asleep At about ten o'clock an Angel came and wakened him. When the man awoke he called his brother, but the Angel came and stood before him. The man said "you are not my brother" The Angel disappeared then altogether; and the man went home

Once upon a time there was a woman living alone in a house. She used never go to Mass. The priest asked her why she did not go to Mass. "O Father my hens would go if I went." The priest told her to put her hens into the house and shut the back and front doors; so she did. When she was at Mass awhile the person who was sitting beside her said her back door was opened and her hens were gone. She ran home saying "O my hens are gone"
