صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: قداسة البابا المعظم الأنبا كيرلس السادس بابا الإسكندرية وبطريرك الكرازة المرقسية الـ116.

In March 1997, In Brother A. She’s in South Orange County, The house owner told me the following story:

An American Jewish man told me that he intended to start a certain project but he faced many obstacles. Therefore, he lost hope in continuing. One of the employees working with him, who happened to be a Coptic lady, saw him, much distressed. Knowing the reason, she said to him, “Take this photo, put it in your pocket and cry to God. He’ll surely support you.”

He was not a religious man at all. However, feeling such bitterness, he took it and put it in his pocket without even asking whose photo it was. He returned home and cried to God. Then, he noticed that a certain force has filled his soul. He started the project to find everything going on easily.

As I asked him to show me the photo, I discovered that it is the photo of St. Pope Cyril VI.”

My beloved Father Pope Cyril reposed in the Lord more than twenty-seven years ago. However, he is still working through prayers even with more strength in many countries. He did not master English; yet, he talked to an American Jewish in the language of the spirit which excels any human language.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: صورة أم قوة!

St-Takla.org Divider

 Grant me the spirit of prayers and praises, as You granted my father.

Then, neither weakness nor death will conquer me.

 The world is in need of saints,

To preach with the spirit of strength.

Neither place nor time can imprison them,

Since Your Fiery Holy Spirit works in them.
