Cover Matter -1

What Angels Can't Do

The biggest property that man has is the property of mercy. It is a tear that flows out of man’s eye at seeing the bare head of a widow, cold stove of a poor and at hearing the sigh of a patient. The drop of tear, if dropped in an ocean, then it’d purify it and if dropped in the forest of sins then burn it all to convert it into light. Angels can present everything but this droplet of tear they can not produce.
