Window Through Which We Look

Window Through Which We Look

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood.

The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman watched her neighbor hanging wash outside.

“That laundry is not very clean,” she said. 

”She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.”

Her husband looked on, but remained silent.

Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband,

“Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.I wonder who taught her this.”

The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.”

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others may depend on the purity of the window through which we look.

From the inspiration of Ezekiel (6)

How amazing are Your works, O Lord!
You made me - the dust and sand - a holy mountain for You!
Count me as the Mount of Horeb,
On which to proclaim Your Law,
As the Mount of Tabor,
On which You transfigure with Your splendor.
And as the Mount of Calvary to offer on it the sacrifice of Your love.

On the mountains, Israel set their idols like other nations.
They defiled the high places with their abominations.
With love You chasten by bringing a sword and by abolishing the high places.
The cities would become desolate.
Yet You do not forget the holy remnant.
As You are the compassionate God
Take away from my mountains all abominations.
Burn by the fire of Your Holy Spirit all the thorns of sin.
Sanctify me, and count me as Your holy mountain!

Fr. Tadros Malaty
From the Inspiration of The Book of Ezekiel

Verses And Fathers Sayings

Verses And Fathers Sayings 

Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. 
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”    
Matthew 26:41

 A small but always persistent discipline is a great force, 
for a soft drop fallen persistently hollows out hard rock.
St. Isaac the Syrian
