The Release of the Spirit
It is a collection of articles entitled, "The Release of the Spirit" written for the Sunday School Magazine from the year 1951 . I was then the editor of that magazine before starting my monastic life. These articles were published in the form of a book in the year 1957 including some of my poems which were published in the magazine as well.. It was my first published book and it gained the approval of many and was reprinted many times. The fourth edition included some meditations and poems which I wrote while still a monk before my ordination as a bishop. It included also an introduction which is in fact another article on the release of the spirit. To the fifth edition, another introduction was added on the same topic. We hope-God willing-that we may add other articles to the coming editions on the same topic..
