"Be patient as I am with you!"

"Be patient as I am with you!"

An old woman, a holy soul, lived in Piraeus alone. Her only child followed the path of monasticism; she dedicated herself to God! She accepted the event, praising God for the honor she did to her child and to herself, even though she was left alone. In addition, she did not have good health. 

After several years, God rewarded her for her faith and devotion to Him, and opened for the moment the eyes of her soul to see the guardian angel of her soul! His brightness and divine sweetness filled the most revered old woman with supernatural joy. Now she had seen with her own eyes that in reality she was never seen alone. Thus, she prayed with greater faith and fervor.

However, the disease grew worse overtime. And once, like a weak man, she bent down, shedding many tears in her pain! Then, in this difficult moment, her holy angel appeared smiling again, ready to strengthen her.

But the old woman looked at him and said in  pain:

"My holy angel, beg the Lord to take me! I can't take it anymore!"

And he answered her affectionately, but firmly:

"You must, old woman, have a little more patience."

Because she was having a hard time accepting it, she added:

"I have been patient for so many years and I sit near you, and I am deprived of the joy of Heaven! Do it a little more!

When she heard these words, she was shocked and said to her soul:

"Let the will of the Lord be done!

The Holy Angel then ceased to appear, but his appearance and his words left an infinite peace and a divine consolation to theold woman. (She entrusted this fact to her son Monachos, when he came down once from Mount Athos to visit her.)

Truly, how great is the love of the Holy Angels for man! After all, the Lord has also said that when a sinful man repents and enters the way of salvation, joy takes place in Heaven, both from the saints and the angels.
