During the period that Father Pishoy Kamel spent in London for medical treatment, one of his spiritual daughters used to call him regularly to enquire about his health. After his departure from this world, that young lady was subjected to a vicious attack, on a New Jersey street, where a man stabbed her twelve times. She was subsequently hospitalised, being in a very critical condition. Although she had lost conscience, she kept murmuring: “Father Pishoy! Father Pishoy! Don’t leave me!” Since she used to serve with Father Pishoy Dimitri in East Brunswick, those who heard her contacted him saying that she was looking for him to pray for her. Father Pishoy Dimitri therefore visited her, prayed for her and anointed her with holy oil. She then regained conscience and said, “I thank my God who didn’t forsake me, but sent the holy virgin, Pope Kyrillos and Father Pishoy Kamel who prayed for me. Father Pishoy never left my side and stayed with me till the end.”
One of the American surgeons who operated on her said, “I’ve treated many non-fatal cases. But during this one, where hope for recovery had been lost, I felt that an invisible hand was performing throughout the operation.”
* You have descended, O Wonderful One, to save me,
And to establish with me a unique friendship .
To me, You became a brother in the depths of my soul,
Deeper than my soul .
I see You, I hear You, and I feel Your love.
* You have granted me friendships from the other world.
You opened for me the gates of heaven, to let me befriend Your angels
And the heavenly hosts.
You opened for me the gate to Paradise,
Making me perceive that death did not destroy my brothers’ love,
Those who pray and intercede for me,
Seeking my salvation and awaiting my crossing over to them.
Truly, Your works with us are wonderful.
They Paid Much
