صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: أشخاص حزانى.

Two men were assigned a job in a coal mine. One was a righteous Christian and the other was evil. The deeper they went into the mine, the hotter it became. Then it became so hot, that the evil one said, If this is the temperature in the mine, how hot will it be in Hell with the burning fire?

The Christian replied, I dont think I can comment on the difference but I do know one thing. If a single link of the chain attaching us breaks, well be separated for ever in the twinkle of an eye.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: نيران الجحيم.

St-Takla.org Divider

We all labour in life together.

Perhaps the believers share of suffering is larger.

But when will the wheat be separated from the chaff?

When will I leave the flames of hardship to enjoy the pleasure of the Paradise?

I long to see the whole world glorified,

And Your Holy Spirit working in everyone.

O You, who will salvation and the knowledge of truth for all.
