There once was a Tsar that ruled with an iron fist. All of his people feared him.
One day in church, the priest read a passage from the bible that the Tsar did not like. When he went home, he ordered the priest to come to him.
The Tsar was very angry and told the priest to cross out the passages. The priest refused and the Tsar told him he had three days to come to his senses. That night an angel came to the priest and told him that he would protect him.
The angel took the place of the Tsar as ruler and the priest was promoted to head bishop. He was a good and gracious Tsar. Every year he would hold a gathering and everyone would be invited, poor and rich, including the now poor Tsar.
In the tenth year of the Angel Tsar's rule, he held another banquet and took the old, cruel Tsar aside.
“Lo! God hath tried thee and chastised thy pride these ten years. But me He sent to teach thee that a Tsar must have regard to the complaints of his people. Look now, that thou doest good to thy people, and judgest righteous judgment, as from henceforth thou shalt be Tsar again.
Then, the Tsar graciously prayed to God and made pleasant things for his courtiers. From then on, he justly ruled his people as the angel had commanded.
