His Life is Mine

Contemplation, prayer, spirituality — these words have become popular in our day among those despairing at the banality and emptiness of the contemporary scene. But popular as well are a myriad of pseudo-spiritualities, each offering its own shortcut to spiritual satisfaction. His Life is Mine is a refreshing contrast. The book deals with prayers, and especially with the "Jesus Prayer" of Orthodox monasticism.

Orthodox Prayer Life: The Interior Way

CODE: AOK-123786

Saints who experience the power of prayer say it gives them wings to fly: wings of elation from being in proximity with Jesus Christ and relief from the burden of a sinful conscience. Once engulfed in the grace of the Holy Spirit, the person in prayer experiences death to sin, resurrection in the Spirit, and mystical ascension to the Father. The visible touches the Invisible, and joy wells up in the human heart.

This volume evolved experientially: the fruit of fifty-five years of solitude by a contemporary desert monk besieged by prayer. Father Matta's prayer life initially was formed under the direction of the sayings of the Russian Fathers, and later expanded under the direction of other Fathers, both Eastern and Western. He spent whole nights in prayer, reciting one or two passages from these luminaries and begging these saints to enlighten his understanding.

Father Matta discloses:

Whenever physical hunger turned cruel against me, I found my gratification in prayer. Whenever the biting cold of winter was unkind to me, I found my warmth in prayer. Whenever people were harsh to me (and their harshness was severe indeed) I found my comfort in prayer. In short, prayer became my food and my drink, my outfit and my armor, whether by night or by day.

Desiring to share the lessons he learned, and compelled by the Holy Spirit to do so, he wrote this volume so that he might impart to his readers "a whole course" on the life of prayer.

Father Matta El-Maskeen (Matthew the Poor) is a monk in the Monastery of St Macarius the Great, Wadi El-Natroun, Egypt. He also is the author of Communion of Love, published by St Vladimir's Seminary Press.

The Freedom of Morality

The author states that "freedom carries with it the ultimate possibility of taking precisely this risk: that man should deny his own existential truth and authenticity, and alienate and distort his existence, his being." Morality reveals what man is in principle, as the image of God, but also what he becomes through the adventure of his freedom: a being transformed, or "in the likeness of God."

A Collection of Essays Honoring Jaroslav Pelian on His Eightieth Birthday

Jaroslav Pelikan is recognized as the foremost church historian of the twentieth century-a position he has held for nearly fifty years. It is a reputation built upon such monuments as The Christian Tradition, and his most recent work, Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition. These essays by colleagues and former students of Pelikan were given during a yearlong, nationwide celebration of his 80th birthday, culminating in December 2003 at Yale University, where Pelikan himself gave the final lecture. The general theme of the series was the impact of Orthodoxy on Western culture. Contributors include: John Erickson, Valerie Hotchkiss and Patrick Henry, Andrew Louth, Anthony Ugolnik, John Anthony McGuckin, Speros Vryonis, Jr., James H. Billington, and Vartan Gregorian. Besides his essay, "The Will to Believe and the Need for Creed," Pelikan adds, for the first time, a personal memoir of his life as a scholar.
