God came to visit an old woman in the village.
She told about it to the priest who was in charge of the spiritual condition of his congregation, and the priest asked her:
“Next time when God appears to you, ask Him to tell you about my sins that are known only to Him. That is enough to distinguish whether it is God or someone else is appearing to you. ”
The woman returned a month later and the priest asked if God had reappeared to her.
She nodded affirmatively.
– Did you ask Him the question?
– Yes, I did.
– And what did He answer?
– He said, “Tell your priest that I have forgotten his sins.”
– Indeed, it was God, the priest replied.
