Dialogue with the DivineH.H. Pope Shenouda III, Prayer, SpiritualityPope Shenouda III is a treasure chest. Oh, if one could peek inside! This book is exactly the vent through which we can peek into his soul. Here we taste the sweetness of his God-centered life through his dialogues with God. We cannot say that we can see the full scope of his intimate relationship with God, but for a moment we can feel and share in this longing for unity with the Lord, speaking to Him from his heart, debating with Him, discussing with Him, and begging Him. This book certainly can teach a person how to pray: how to have a dialogue with the Divine. His Holiness Pope Shenouda III began holding weekly spiritual meetings since the 1960s when he was ordained a bishop, and so the contents of this book are gleaned from as early as those meetings and his various publications, spanning over 50 years of intimate conversations with God. We pray that this book inspires the readers to a deeper relationship with the Divine.$11.99
Monastic Treasures for All of UsH.H. Pope Shenouda III, SpiritualityMonastic Treasures for All of Us A Series of Homilies and Lectures by the Thrice-Blessed Pope Shenouda III of Blessed Memory$12.99
About the Book Although these homilies and lectures were delivered to monastic communities, the spiritually nourishing teachings reflect on biblical teachings that are applicable to all readers seeking to pursue a life of holiness. His Holiness Pope Shenouda III of Blessed Memory draws from decades of spiritual dedication, formally beginning from his joining the monastery, and thereafter being ordained a priest, then hegumen, bishop, and finally chosen as the 117th Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria, leading the Coptic Church as he excelled by God's grace in his role as a shepherd and teacher for over 40 years before his departure in 2012. His deeply moving homilies are reminiscent of the famed sayings of the early desert fathers, and bring to mind the famed oratory influence and eloquence of the fourth century archbishop of Constantinople St. John Chrysostom (the "golden-mouthed").
