Kóka Rozália’s children’s column: Two tales from Pétër László’s book of Hungarian Székely stories from Voivodina. The Szekeli Outlaws – is about two mischievous boys that were always getting into trouble. One day they decided to run away and become outlaws. They spent a fine day doing this until it began to get dark and they realized that they wanted to go home... The Bread Trick – about a clever, playful boy who was sent to the bakery every morning to get bread for the family. He devised a spectacular trick of throwing up the loaf bread and then running in the gate in time to catch it. He would perform this trick for the passers-by until one day when rival children fixed it so he couldn’t get in the gate. The bread fell into the mud and he got a whipping when he got home. The moral: don’t make a plaything of Christ’s body, God’s gift.
