 There are eight monks living in the monastery.  Each year, the monks spin wool into sweaters, crush berries into jams and jellies and press apples into applesauce.  These were sold and the monks made enough money to pay the bills.  Brother Bartholomew was in charge of the apple orchard and he was getting old.  He sometimes forgot to close the gate.  He didn't repair the fence.  And he didn't always pick all the apples.  As a matter of fact, the deer in the forest ate a good share of the apples.  But Brother Bartholomew always said "God will provide" as he watched the beautiful deer from his chair.  When a young monk came to live in the monastery, he decided he could do a better job with the apples than Brother Bartholomew did.  Can you guess what he will find?
