Contemplations on Joseph’s life from the Holy Bible

Here’s the gown … take it … it’s all yours . But my heart.. it’s not included . That gown is surely none of my ownership.. I will surely never claim it . It is all from your money .. so you can have it . You can claim it back or you can leave it . But my own heart … I have sworn that you will never get into it . It is none of mine … and none of yours . It is totally owned by our Lord . He gave it to me and therefore I can’t give it away. It is in vain your closeness to it . You can go ahead and ask it.
Poetry by His Holiness Pope Shenouda the Third .
