An anecdote with a deep message

I found this quote online, unfortunately in many cases it sums up the attitude of some individuals in the Orthodox community. Looking forward to comments.

"There is a story related from Rav Yitzchak Elchonon Spektor of Kovno. He had an assistant who was a kannoi and hounded the more modern people and those who were not frum. Rav Yitzchak Elchonon said, "The
difference between me and my assistant is like the difference beween a cat and the homeowner. Both the cat and the homeowner hate the mouse. The cat wants there to be a lot of mice for him to catch and eat. the homeowner, on the other hand, wants their to be no mice at all."

Rav Yitzchak Elchonon said, "I daven that there should be no sinners. My assistant prefers that there should be sinners so that he can chase after them and attack them."




Always nice to see good news
