Pope Cyril the Great wanted to inform the emperor about decisions of the Ecumenical Council of Ephesus but the Nestorians prevented this from happening by searching every person that came near the emperor's palace. At last, the Pope thought of sending an elderly monk to visit the emperor holding a staff. Inside this staff would be a copy of the decisions of the council. He was searched but it never occurred to them that the staff contained what they were looking for. As soon as he was in the presence of the emperor, he pulled out the papers from the staff and handed them to the emperor.
Likewise, God gives wisdom to His believers to overcome difficulties.
