Once a small town was visited by a saint. As he passed by a small hut, a woman came to him and begged him to pray for her critically-ill child. Since the saint was new to the town, a crowd gathered around him and see if he could do anything.
The woman brought the sick child to him and he said the prayer over her.
‘Do you really think your prayer will help her when medicine has failed?’, yelled a man from the crowd. From the crowd one guy shouted, ‘Will your prayer work when medicine has failed?’
‘You idiot, you don’t know what I am doing! and just shut up’, said the saint to the man.
The man became furious with these words with his face grew hot and red. He was about to say something or perhaps hit the saint.
The saint walked towards him and said, ‘If one word has such power to make you so angry and hot, may not another word have a power to heal?’
When one word can make you mad, another word can make you heal!
