 The king of ancient Sparta boasted of the fences of his city, which did not exist anywhere else in the world. A visitor who came to him observed that there were no fences around Sparta; thus, he asked the king, Where are the fences of Sparta of which youre proud?

Then, the king pointed at some soldiers saying, These are its fences. Each one of them is like a stone in a fence.

St-Takla.org Divider

Let me hear Your voice O God.

He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God.

Let me be a living stone,

To lean on my brethren and let them lean on me.

May we all have the foundation of Christian faith.

Give us love to make us all a fence with You.
