صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: القمص ميخائيل إبراهيم وهو يبتسم (1899-1975).

One Christmas eve, as the church was full, Fr. Mikhail Ibrahim saw a young man coming out of the Deacons room with tears in his eyes. He went to him and with a smile asked him, Why are you sad?

The young man did not want to talk but the father insisted on finding out.

 The young man answered, I came late. I wished to serve on this special night but I didnt find my uniform Tonia. It seems that one of the Deacons from another church took mine by mistake and put it on.

Fr. Mikhail took him by his hand to the priests room and offered him his own Tonia. The young man refused but Fr. Mikhail insisted that he should wear it and said to him, Youve a blessing to wear it. Dont be upset. Be joyous. No one should be sad on this special evening.
