THE POPE’S ROOM AND THE MANAGER

 

ONE OF THE POPE’S PUPILS SAID: AT SOME POINT THE POPE FELL ILL AND THE DOCTORS ADVICED HIM TO STAY IN BED. DURING THAT TIME, THE VATICAN’S AMBASSADOR IN CAIRO, CAME TO VISIT HIS HOLLINESS. DUE TO HIS HOLLINESS’ SICKNESS, IT WAS ESSENTIAL FOR THE AMBASSADOR TO VISIT HIM IN HIS CELL. ONCE HE ENTERED THE CELL, HE WAS SURPRISED AT ITS SIMPLICITY.THE ELECTRICAL WIRES WERE HANGING LOOSE, THE PAINT WAS VERY WORN OUT, AND THE FURNITURE WAS VERY PRIMATIVE. THE MAN WONDERED HOW THE COPTIC POPE COULD LIVE IN SUCH A SIMPLE CELL. THE MAN REQUESTED THAT THE POPE LEAVES HIS CELL FOR ONLY TWELVE HOURS, TO ALLOW HIM AND HIS MEN TO RENOVATE THE CELL AND CHANGE THE FURNITURE TO SOMETHING MORE SUITABLE FOR THE COPTIC POPE.
THE POPE THANKED THE AMBASSADOR FOR HIS THOUGHTFULNESS SAYING “ WE THANK GOD AND YOU”. BUT THE AMBASSADOR INSISTED, SO THE POPE SAID TO HIM “ MY LORD JESUS CHRIST LIVED IN A MANAGER, BUT THIS CELL IS MUCH GREATER”.
THE AMBASSADOR WENT QUIET, AND WAS AMAZED BY THE POPE’S SPRITUALITY, AND THE BIBLICAL LIFE HE WAS LIVING.
