A Minister was invited to a banquet on Saturday night but he said he would not be able to attend. When he was asked to give a reason for not going, he said, “When a surgeon is responsible for an operation he’s usually busy by sterilization; he doesn’t touch anything. I dedicate the Saturdays for sitting with my Master in order to be ready to serve His people on Sundays.”

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: ليلة الاستعداد.

St-Takla.org Divider

Lord let me be the physician of souls.

You are the Great Physician.

I serve so that they would be holy in You.

I shall carry You to the souls of my injured friends

And not carry them the poison of my hidden sins.

Draw me away! We will run after You.
