Young man young lady if you want to enjoy a strong personality; you have to know the true practical love.
I have known Father Pishoy since he was the Sunday school supervisor in St Mary church, in Moharam Bek, Alexandria. When we used to meet for congratulating a young man on his success or return from abroad, he used to turn the conversation into a spiritual one with love and gaiety. His wise love makes you desire to tell him what worries you; he never interfered with the affairs of others. He was, as Christ said, like salt that adds taste to the food without making it inedible.
In 1957, in a retreat period in one of the monasteries, one of the monks asked me if I knew Samy Kamel (Fr. Pishoy). I said, “Yes, I do.”
“That man is like a nice breathe that passes and leaves you with peace of mind. He makes you feel that you want to chat with him but he doesn’t interfere in the lives of others.””
