The Praying Hands - a story of brotherly love

The Praying Hands - a story of brotherly love -


Today, while everybody is busy living their lives in the fast lane, selfishness and greed are becoming man's second nature. We are so busy clocking hours at the office, and so stressed by deadlines and assignments, that even a small thought of family and friends, seems like an oasis in the hustle and bustle.

Today is a special day of remembrance, and the right day to share a story of brotherly love. A story that happened long ago.

Hundreds of years ago, in Nuremberg, Germany, there lived a poor Goldsmith and his wife, with their huge family of 18 children. The Goldsmith worked relentlessly to merely provide two meals for his family. Two of his eldest children, Albert and Albrecht were very ambitious and dreamed of pursuing their passion for art at the famous college in Nuremberg.

The Goldsmith could not afford this additional burden. But dreams have ways of manifesting! The brothers came up with a plan. They decided to toss a coin. The winner would go to college for four years while the loser would support the winner's education by working in the mines. On a special Sunday, after church, the brothers tossed the coin. Albrecht was going to college!

Albrecht quickly became the star of the college. His works gained critical acclaim, his oil work and woodcuts were even better than some of his teachers. By the time he completed his education, Albrecht had even earned some money from his works.

All this time, Albert toiled in the dangerous mines, and helped pay for his brothers’ education. Four years had passed and it was finally time for Albrecht to return home. He was welcomed back by his family with great pomp. Albrecht kept his promise. He asked his brother to attend college, he would go to the mines instead and help him now.

The family was stunned! How could their talented brother give it all up, and go to the mines! A teary eyed Albert refused the generous offer. Years of work in the mines had made him weak. His hands trembled, he would never hold delicate parchment again.

These two brothers, my dear friends, were Albert and Albrecht Durer. Albrecht Durer went ahead to become a great artist. His works have been reproduced innumerable times, and are appreciated by millions around the world, even today. Years later, Albrecht Durer painted "The Praying Hands" in the honor of his brother's great sacrifice.

When there is love, we can move mountains!
