The family got sad and confused for the death of the late priest Shenouda El Shayeb in Esna on October 5th, 1995. On entering the room where young David, the priest's grandson, was sleeping, the family members heard him saying loudly, "I can hear grandpa’s voice." At that time, David was only three years old. A few days later, the child, being asked about what he saw in his dream, he said that he saw heaven very beautiful but he could not remember what had been said by his grandpa. The only thing he could remember was that his grandpa’s face was very shining and beautiful.
Oh God! Grant me a heart of a child
To see Your face and glory,
To hear the voice of reposed believers,
To enjoy their praises for You
And to be eager to go and partake in their angelic praising.
A Father’s Feelings
