صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: رجل في قيود وسلاسل السجن، جندي مقبوض عليه.

A person applying for a job started filling out an application form which included the following question, Were you imprisoned before?

He answered, No.

The following question asked, Why were you not imprisoned?

He answered, Because nobody arrested me.

He deserved to be imprisoned but the policemen did not see him when he was committing the crime, That is why he was not arrested.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: هل سبق أن سُجنت؟

St-Takla.org Divider

I confess O my Lord Jesus Christ that I am a sinner and deserve death,

But Your blood saved me, so I was not arrested.

My sin is ever before me,

But You carried it for me, as You are the Carrier of all the sins of the world.

I was trapped in sin, but I did not succumb to it.

You forgave all my sins.
