Short Stories (Stories for the Youth), book by Father Tadros Yacoub Malaty

358- A Strawberry Can


 The pastor of the church knocked the door of one of the houses in his perish. A lady in an apron opened to him holding a can of Strawberries. She said to him harshly, I dont want you to talk to me, Im indifferent with religion.

As she wanted to shut the door, the pastor said, Can I know what youre carrying?

A can of strawberries, she replied. Image: Strawberry صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: فاكهة الفراولة Image: Strawberry.

From where did you get it?

From the supermarket.

What are you doing with it?

A pie.

You know what you are carrying, from where you got it and what you are doing of it. However, you dont care to know your soul, its origin and its work and purpose.

Elders with the spirit of youths


The Christian does not know senility.

He is always growing.


Remember that:

Goethe completed his literally work Faust when he was eighty-two.

Titian drew his best painting when he was ninety-eight.

Kourad Adenauer was the leader of West Germany when he was eighty-six.


Always live with the heart of a youth,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagles.
