St. Gerasim served the lion by removing a thorn from its paw, and in turn the lion served St. Gerasim and his monastery for the rest of his life. This small gem of a story shows us this extraordinary friendship through the eyes of the lion, and of a baboon he befriends along the way, allowing us to participate in the lion's transformation - through contact with holiness - from an undifferentiated dumb beast to a particular lion with his own name and destiny.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBook Details:\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eAge Range: 9+ years\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eAuthor: Laura E.
