WHY DID YOU COME TO US?


TWO YOUNG MEN WERE PASSING BY THE BATRIARCHATE AT SUNSET. AT THAT TIME , HIS HOLINESS POPE KYROLLOS WAS PRAYING THE VESPER. ONE OF THE YOUNG MEN SUGGESTED TO THE OTHER TO ATTEND THE VESPER AND GET HIS HOLINESS’ BLESSING. HIS FRIEND ANSWERED SAYING “HE IS AN IGNORANT MAN. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO IN THERE”. BUT THE YOUNG MAN INSISTED, SO, THEY ENTERED THE CHURCH AND STOOD BEHIND THE LAST ROW.

AS THE POPE WAS WALKING ALONG THE CHURCH WITH THE CENSOR, HE PUT THE CROSS ON THE YOUNG MAN WHO WANTED THE BLESSING. HE THEN SLAPPED HIS FRIEND ON THE CHEEK SAYING “ SINCE WE ARE IGNORANT , WHY DID YOU COME TO US?”. THE YOUNG MAN WAS ASTONISHED. HOW DID POPE KYROLLOS KNOW.THE CONVERSATION WAS PRIVATE, NO ONE HEARD IT. IT SEEMS THAT HIS HOLINESS WAS PRESENT DURING THE CONVERSATION IN AN UNSEEN WAY.
