In the city of Rally, North Carolina, Fr. Mesail Abu-Elkher told the following story:

The glass windows of the Cathedral of St. Peter of Rome were imported from Spain. Everything was ready for the opening of the Cathedral but the night before the opening they realized that the eastern window of the altar was missing. However, it was difficult to postpone the opening ceremonies.

Everyone was panicking. The famous artist Michael Angelo said to them, “Why are you upset? Show me where you threw the broken pieces of glass.”

They asked one another what he was going to do with broken pieces of glass but he insisted.

He started to choose some pieces and to put the broken pieces together, producing a beautiful picture of the Holy Spirit, which won the admiration of all.

No one could imagine that this beautiful window was made of the broken pieces of glass that were in the trash.

This is the work of the Holy Spirit, the Greatest Artist; He carries me from the trash to the chief’s place.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: كِسَرْ الزجاج.

St-Takla.org Divider

Who carries me from the trash to the holy altar, except You the Fiery Holy Spirit!

Transforming my corruption to immortality and from death to life.

 

Work in me, to sanctify my body and spirit, my thoughts and my feelings,

all my possibilities to be transformed to a living Icon of my Lord Jesus Christ.

Then, the Spirit of God would be glorified in me.
