A minister was astonished at the welcome he received at an ancient Coptic monastery. The monks treated him as if he were the most important guest they had received since the place was established in the 12th century. They served him a fine meal, showed him to a comfortable room, and brought him a bouquet of flowers. He was then greeted by the abbot of the monastery, Father Jeremiah.

WOW,” said the minister, “you sure know how to treat visitors.”

Jeremiah replied, “We always treat guests as if they were angels… just to be safe.”
