Arsany looked at his sister Susan in humility and said, You always climb the hill while I cant. I want to climb but it seems that Ill remain at its foot all my life. What can I do?

Susan answered, Dont be afraid Arsany. Ill climb slowly. Walk on my footprints. Ill support you till you reach the top.

Susan actually climbed slowly and Arsany followed her footsteps. After a while, a wind blew and erased Susan footprints. Arsany got a little perplexed and said to his sister, What can I do? Your footprints disappeared.

She answered, Dont be afraid Arsany. Youre on the top now.

He cried, I never thought that reaching the top is that easy. Thank you for, you supported me with your footprints for a while. Now, I can reach the top easily.

+ Thank You O Lord,

For, You gave us many saints,

To follow their steps.

Grant me their way,

To possess You as they did.

I urge you, imitate me (1 Cor. 4.16).

The winds of time may blow,

And erase their footsteps.

I have already reached the mount with them.
