صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: بطاطس.

While a pious lady was talking to some ladies about Lord Jesus Christ, a man threw a potato on her face and disappeared. All the ladies were perplexed but she gently took it and put it in her bag.

Few months later, the lady came to the church with a bag of potatoes which he offered to the church. A lady asked her, “Where did you get it?”

She answered, “I offer to the Lord the first fruits of the potato which was thrown over my face while I was talking to you. I planted it in my garden and these are the fruits.

What should I offer You my Lord?

You bore our shame.

Let me bear the fruits of good which conquers evil,

In order to see good even in pain.
