One day, a High school student in New York City injured his nose. He headed from school to the medical clinic where the doctor had treated him. As he was meditating on the reason God allowed his nose to be hurt, he found himself in front of the Bronx zoo. He thought of going into the Zoo for sometime because nobody would be at home in the morning. The student paid for the ticket but before entering, the senior employees of the zoo surprised him by presenting him a gift. The photographers were taking pictures of him as well. When he asked about the reason, he was told that he was the person number billion to enter the zoo since the date it had been opened.

 It is a very simple incident, but happens daily in the life of the faithful who say with St. Paul the apostle,

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God,

To those who are the called according to His purpose (Rom. 8.28).

God, Your Fatherhood is profound and miraculous, transforming all my life to good.

Your plans transform the utmost bitterness into sweetness.

It is in You, the Guide of my life, that my soul finds rest.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: من العيادة إلى حديقة الحيوانات.
