One day, after Father Pishoy had reposed, a young girl told us the following story:

“I once almost lost my faith because of loving, and living with, a non-Christian man. Father Pishoy had gently and with loving kindness counselled and supported me, until I had ended that relationship and whole-heartedly rejected it. After his departure, sin overpowered me and I resumed my relationship with that young man. One night, Father Pishoy appeared to me in a dream and, for the first time, he was angry. He slapped me and rebuked me saying, “Didn’t I tell you to leave that young man and to stop living in sin?” I woke up fully repentant, and decided that, with God’s help, I would not return to sin.”

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: صفعني بالقلم!

Dear Father, your fiery heart will not be quenched.

Your expansive love for every soul embraces all.

Your work in the Lord’s name will never stop.
