178- The Dirty Fingers

St-Takla.org Image: Praying in repentance, Repent and Pray: A Coptic woman/girl praying and crying, with her hands up, along with a candle, by Sister Sawsan.

صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: الصلاة بانسحاق، توبة و صلاة: امرأة/فتاة قبطية تصلي وتبكي، ويداها مرفوعتان، وخلفها شمعة، رسم تاسوني سوسن.

Salome returned from school, started doing her homework and her fingers got dirty from the ink. Her Dad asked her to clean her hands but she told him, Dad, Ill have a shower before going to bed.

Her father said to her, Taking a shower is general hygiene but when our hands get dirty we should wash them. Dont you see Mom washing her hands every time they get dirty while shes working in the kitchen?

We need daily repentance with our prayer, as we pray,

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Daily repentance saves us when our souls are soiled by certain sins.

Daily repentance does not interfere with a special repentance and vice versa.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: الأصابع المتسخة!

A daily shower is good hygiene.

Nevertheless, when my hands get dirty I hurry to clean them.

Let me wash my soul in Your Blood.

Let me have the blessing of Your daily forgiveness.

Let Your Holy Spirit remind me of my sins.

Carry me to Your Cross to enjoy Your forgiveness,

Because You are the Most Holy, Forgiver of our sins.
