Abraham’s 13 year old son Isaac was sent home from school again for bad behavior. Abraham is at his wits end and doesn’t know what to do. He talks it over with his Catholic neighbor Frank.

“I don’t know what to do with him,” says Abraham

“Why don’t you send him to a strict Catholic school?” replies Frank. “Those nuns know how to boys like Isaac.”

Abraham is not thrilled with the idea of sending his Jewish son to a Catholic school, but none of the Jewish schools will take him because of his reputation as a trouble maker. So Abraham send sends Isaac to the Catholic school.

After several months at Lady of Our Perpetual Help, there is no problem whatsoever.

So Abraham asks Isaac, “Why is it that you now behave so well?

“Well” says Isaac, “When I came there they showed me this Jewish boy on a cross and then I knew that with those nuns mean business.”
