Day 33: daily lent practice: How? Learn from mistakes

Category : Daily Lent Practice

“For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise
again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity.” (Prov

“During the first years of my ordination, Father
Pishoy Kamel was angry once at one of the servants of
the church and after two days he came to me and said,
‘Can you imagine that the mistake I made by yelling at
the servant was spread quickly among the people.’

He commented by saying that, ‘The people request
ultimate idealism from the priest. We have to be calm
so as not to hurt others.’ And this was the first and
last time I saw him angry at someone. He had set the
foundation of love among the workers in the church
through his love and kindness.”
