صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: جندي، رجل بوليس.

A former soldier went into the Chase Bank of Manhattan to apply for a loan of $600 since the bank had a special section for small loans for workers and employees.

 The soldier started filling the loan applications and took them with him because some signatures were required from governmental sources to prove his former career. He returned to the bank, the next day and submitted the papers. The bank manager asked him to stand in front of the camera and a picture was taken of him to be attached with the forms.

 When his picture, name and the amount of money were registered, the estimate of the small loans paid by the bank reached exactly one billion dollars.

 The bank manager stood with the other employees to congratulate the former soldier and the camera of the local newspaper took his picture. He was lucky, as by his loan, the total amount of small loans of the bank became exactly one billion dollars. Because of this soldier's luck, the bank decided to give him the loan free without letting him pay a dime.

St-Takla.org Divider

Yes my Lord, You watch my coming to You at the right decisive moment.

I owe You a loan. Who could pay it? But Your Divine promise exempts me from it.

Your Son descended to redeem me from every debt.

Here are all the cameras directed towards me, even all the saints are surrounding me.

All Your heavenly blessings cover me.

What credit do I have?

You are the giver of all these free offerings.
