After nineteenyears of imprisonment, hewas released.Unable to find work because he had been aconvict, he came to thehome of an old bishop whokindly fed Jean supper andgave him a bed for thenight.In deep despair overwhat seemed an impossiblybleak future, Jean yielded totemptation, stole the

slipped away in the night.He was soon caught,however, and hauled back 
to the bishop’s house.

Trasdiecinueve años de cárcel, fuepuesto en libertad.No encontraba trabajo porhaber sido presidiario, perollegó a la casa de un ancianoobispo compasivo, que leofreció cena y alojamientopor una noche.Desesperado ante lasescasas perspectivas de unfuturo mejor, cedió a latentación y, tras robar lavajilla de plata del obispo, seescabulló en mitad de lanoche. Al poco tiempo lodetuvieron y lo llevaron anteel obispo.
 
Knowing what would happento Jean if he was convicted asecond time, the kind bishop
told the police, “I gave him
the silver. And Jean, youforgot to take the
candlesticks.”
  Jean was astounded atsuch kindness. From thatmoment on, his life wascompletely changed.El buen prelado sabía lasuerte que correría aquelhombre si lo volvían acondenar por robo. Ello lomotivó a responder a losagentes de la ley: «¡Pero siyo se la regalé! Además, Jean, se te olvidó llevartelos candelabros». Jean se quedó pasmadoante semejante bondad. Apartir de aquel momentosu vida no fue la misma.
