This noisy, clamorous period in which mankind lives on the earth cannot be compared in any way with the peace which has existed since eternity and which will last forever . It is but a troubled drop in the ocean of that endless peace. Maybe the angels are looking at our world in astonishment and perhaps they are saying: What is all uproar on this planet?! And why do the people live in such a tumult?! When will they calm down? It is certain that they will not calm down unless they reach us, because calmness is the way of life in heaven.

The Spiritual Man - THE IMAGE OF GOD

Perhaps this question is addressed to every person: Who are you? What is man?

Some would answer:
Man is a body, soul and spirit.

Another would answer :
Man is a living, sensible, talking, free, wishful creature.

Others say - with a sense of humility - that Man is dust and ashes, as our father Abraham said about himself (Gen 18:27).

All this is said about any man, then what is the accurate answer? We say it is the definition of the Spiritual Man according to the Holy Bible:

HE IS THE IMAGE OF GOD

This is what God said in the History of Creation: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him.” (Gen 1:26,27).

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God” (Rom 8:14).

He leads them through certain means which if they follow, they will take part in the work of the Holy Spirit and be in the communion of the Holy Spirit (2Cor 13:14).

We call these means ‘The Spiritual Means’ or the means of grace, that is, the means through which the grace of God works or with which it works...

In this book, I shall speak to you about eleven of these spiritual means. They are:

Prayer, The Holy Bible, Reading the lives of the saints, Contemplation, Spiritual Practices, Giving account of oneself, Confession, Holy Commun- ion, Fasting, Alms Giving and Service...

These means are essential for every person.

No matter how high the spiritual level of a person may be, he could never survive without these means. They are his continual spiritual food. If he kept away from them or neglected practising them, the heat of his spirit will become lukewarm and he will expose himself to many dangerous com- bats...

The material of this book is the fruit of lectures that were given in the sixties, either in Cairo, Alexandria or Damanhour. Parts of these lectures were published in “El-Keraza” magazine and “Watany” newspaper. We have col- lected all these lectures in order to publish this book ...

There is no doubt that a separate book could be written on each chap- ter, but we wanted to present all these topics to you in a concentrated way.

Try to apply and practise these discussed topics in your life. May God be with you, guiding your steps towards Him.

This is the first book I publish about The Resurrection.

But I have published many articles about the resurrection in the Preaching magazine and in the daily newspapers.

Moreover, every year, on Easter Eve, we used to deliver a sermon about that subject in the Great Cathedral.

It was necessary to collect all these articles and sermons for this book, So we could publish it.

This book is comprised of two principal elements:

1. General - theoretical theology -talks on the resurrection.

This is an ideological trend which falls under the limits of theoretical theology or the philosophy of the resurrection written in a good style which suits all denominations.

It, also, explains how resurrection was an essential necessity; how it was potential and the uses and benefits gained from it both spiritually and generally.

2. Topics concerning the resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ; glory be to Him.

It comprises the events of the resurrection and explains its power and its effects; how Jesus' resurrection surpasses other resurrections; the blessedness of this resurrection and its effects on your life; the joys caused by it and the proofs and confirmation of its authenticity.

3. Questions related to the resurrection.

A question about the glorified body; a question about the words of the Lord to Mary Magdalene "Do not hold on to me. "; two other questions about Saint Peter, the apostle and a question about the circumstances of the resurrection and to what extent its events agree with each other.

This last question needs a separate and complete article which will be delivered on another occasion; God willing.

Now, it suffices to wish you a happy Easter and good returns.

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..
