A God fearing woman with faith in His mercy and forgiveness went to the priest from her village to confess and commune.
Because of some sins from her youth, the priest after the Holy Sacrament of Confession gave her only holy water. The woman got upset in her soul but she prayed to God and to the Theotokos. After a few days she died. When her soul reached the gates of heaven an angel asked her:
`Did you confess, did you commune?` Here you can`t enter without confession and holy communion.`
Then the faithful woman said:
`Yes, I confessed with fear of God but I was stopped from the Holy Cmmunion and I am under the canon of my confessor priest .`
`Well, then come in heaven for all those who die under the canon of God given through priest die in obedience towards Him and are saved.`
