One of the kings of Ireland went to a royal banquet. He was given a special place at the head of the table. The king walked with his distinguished guests and everybody saluted him. Suddenly, the king walked to the last rows. People thought that he wanted to talk to somebody but he just sat down. One of the guests asked him to go back to his given place at the head of the table but he replied, “I’m sitting at the head of the table for, Jesus, our head, sat in the last row. And wherever Jesus sits, there is the head of the table. So now I’m sitting at the head of the table enjoying the presence of Jesus.”

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: على رأس المائدة.

God help me seek the last row,

So I can meet You,

You who became a Slave for my sake.

Grant me to be bounded with You,

Jesus, the teacher of meekness and humility.
