thank u so much father kyrillos for posting this amazing link.
here's an idea so u know u need to watch it:

father bishoy when he was a young monk was a bit rebellious and would not accept that his spiritual father got guidance from God. he wanted God to 'give him a clear sign'.
i won't spoil it for you but it involves an ambulance and a 'natural' disaster.

his love and concern for the 'bad girl' that he had been told to throw out of the church was amazing. another beautiful story of mercy, grace and repentance.

Another sermon by Fr. Bishoy El Antony...in this one he retells a beautiful story of a child who received his eyesight back in one of his eyes that was blind from birth.

My brains seem to be unable to comprehend that "Bishoy" is a name, not a misspelled title of a hierarch. :P

The user should probably be sleeping by now.

he was one of the most famous coptic saints.
http://www.stbishoy.org.au/modules/patronsaints/stbishoystory.php
he had the privilege of seeing Jesus before his death and he was a very humble monk.
because of this there are large numbers of egyptian and sudanese men with the name 'bishoy'.
