On the sixteenth of August 1999, as we were receiving HH Pope Shenouda III in New Jersey Airport, his holiness seemed fatigued. He said to me, “I felt as if my ears are closed after getting off the airplane.”
I said, “The British air companies usually give to the passengers ear plugs during the long journeys.”
On the nineteenth of August, as I was praying in Rochester, one of our beloved sons gave me before the Holy Mass four pairs of ear plugs. I was astonished since I did not mention what his holiness told me before anyone. Then, I felt the Divine voice inside me saying to me, “I care even for the little things. I care for the ear plugs.”
I lifted my heart thanking my Lord who reveals to me everyday his wonderful care. In a few moments, I saw Fr. Shenouda Maher who was about to meet his holiness in Boston. Therefore, I sent the ear plugs with him.
I wonder how can anyone deny Your existence!
I grieve over those who ignore Your care.
Wonderful are You in Your love,
And excellent in Your care.
You care even for numbering my hair.
You are busy with all my affairs.
You control heaven and earth.
You care for the little things for my sake.
To You is the glory and thanking O the Beloved Shepherd of my soul.
“As I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you”
Two Priests Attracting my
Heart to Heaven
