I SAW THE POPE

 



MRS RAGAA ESKANDER GERGES FROM THE CITY OF NASER,SOHAG, SAID THE FOLLOWING:

THE MIRACLE THAT I AM ABOUT TO MENTION OCCURRED IN 1985. I CONFESS THAT I AM DEBTED TO THE LOVING POPE KYROLLOS, WHO IS STILL AMONGEST US IN THE SPIRIT,PROTECTING, SAVING, AND INTERCEEDING ON OUR BEHALF.
I WAS VISITING THE SHRINE OF POPE KYROLLOS (IN ST MINA’S MONASTRY) WITH MY HUSBAND AND MY CHILDREN. I PRAYED , THEN I WROTE A REQUST TO HIS HOLLINESS ON A PIECE OF PAPER. THE NOTE READ: “ I WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOUR HOLLINESS”. WE THEN WENT TO VISIT THE MONASTRIES OF WADI EL NATROUN, THEN WE WENT HOME.

THROUGHOUT MY TRIP, MY HUSBANED WAS CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT I WROTE IN THE PIECE OF PAPER. I REFUSED TO TELL HIM, SO HE WAS UPSET.
ONE NIGHT I DREAMT THAT I WAS SLEEPING ON A MOUNTAIN. I THEN SAW A RAY OF DIM LIGHT. I WALKED TOWARDS IT. THE MORE I APPROACHED IT, THE MORE IT LIT, UNTIL I REACHED THE SOURCE OF THE LIGHT. I T WAS POPE KYROLLOS. HE WAS SITTING ON HIS PAPAL CHAIR, HOLDING HIS STAFF. HE THEN SAID TO ME “ COME HERE DAUGHTER”. I TOLD HIM I WAS SCARED. HE THEN ASSURED ME BY SAYING: “DO NOT BE SCARRED”. I INFORMED HIS HOLLINESS THAT I WAS VERY SICK, VOMITING, AND NO MEDICINE WAS ABLE TO CURE ME. HE ASSURED ME THAT I WIL NEVER SUFFER THIS PROBLEM AGAIN.THEN, HIS HOLLINESS TOOK A GREEN PEN OUT OF HIS POCKET, AND CROSSED MY FACE SAYING “CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE KYROLLOS”. I SAID TO HIS HOLLINESS THAT I HAVE CHILDREN, AND DO NOT WANT ANY MORE. HE TOLD ME THAT THIS WOULD BE MY LAST ONE.

I WOKE UP VERY HAPPY. I WOKE MY HUSBAND UP AND TOLD HIM ABOUT MY BEAUTIFUL DREAM. SINCE THEN I WAS CURED FROM THE VOMITING, AND ALL THE PAIN I WAS EXPERIENCING. AND THE POPE GRANTED ME THE WISH I REQUISTED FROM HIM , WHICH IS “I WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOUR HOLINESS”.
