The Used Can
Someone said to Saint Paisios the Hagiorite that he shines like he is gold! The Saint turned to him and said that he is nothing more than a used can. However, he also said that even a can if you clean it well and you turn it towards the sun will shine like gold! The Saint of course meant that cleaning is confession and turning towards the sun is praying to God.
