St. Peter and the Tavern-Keeper—S. Petru e lu tavirnaru

One time, so it’s been told, Jesus Christ went walking on earth with hisapostles to look after the people. When he reached a town, hestopped because he was thirsty from walking so much. During those times the wine was stored in barrels, and the apostles wanted to have the wine of Viola that they liked very much. So Jesus Christ ordered St. Peter to fetch the wine, and he went right away without being asked twice. All the tavernkeepers were deceitful at that time, and when St. Peter entered a tavern, the tavern-keeper wanted to make a fool of him.
