- لما بنصلي بحرارة ربنا بيحط في قلبنا درجة تسليم أعلى وتوصل في آخر الصلاة أنك تقول :
(( يارب اللي يريحك أعمله ..
لتكن لا مشيئتي بل مشيئتك ..
أنا عارف أنك هتعمل أحسن حاجة .. أنا متأكد أنك ليك ميعاد وعارف شغلك ))
- لأن من بركات الصلاة الحارة التسليم وليس الأستجابة ..
فالمعجزة أسهل حاجة عند ربنا إنما الأصعب والأهم عند ربنا أنك أنت تترقى خطوة وتتعلم يعني أيه (( أتكال وتسليم )) ويعني أيه إن المواضيع كلها في أيده يعمل اللي هو عاوزة وأحنا مش عاوزين حاجة غيره هو وملكوته وبس ..
- القادر أن يفعل فوق كل شئ أكثر جدا مما نطلب أو نفتكر بحسب القوة التي تعمل فينا .. لاااااازم تتوقع من ربنا أنه
يعمل فوق العادي وبيعمل دايماً مفاجآت سارة بس المواعيد هي المختلفة ..

Service is an important source of happiness. The Lord Jesus defined happiness when He said,
“It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). True happiness lies not in possessing everything for myself,
but rather in letting others share with me what I possess.

One's happiness is not fulfilled when one has all he needs, but in letting others share what he is enjoying. Lakes are divided into two types: salty lakes and fresh water lakes.

Salty lakes are closed and water pours into them, without an exit; that is they receive but do not give. However, fresh lakes receive and give water; therefore their waters are fresh.

Service gives the soul great happiness. The Lord Jesus clarified this when He illustrated the day of judgment by saying, “I was hungry and you gave Me food I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me” (Matthew 25:35, 36). Happy is the believer who gives spiritual food,

rather than physical one. This leads a person to the Living Fountain, from which, when one drinks, he will never thirst again. Happy is the believer who visits a naked person and offers him clothes,

not to cover his body, but clothes of righteousness which he lacked because of sin. Happy is he who visits a spiritually sick person and introduces him to Jesus to heal him like the four friends who brought their paralyzed friend to Jesus.

Happy is he who visits an imprisoned man, who is in bitter captivity to tell him about the One who can liberate him from the dominion of sin. “Whoever commits sin, is a slave of sin. If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:34, 36).

The goal of service is to let God’s love penetrate into every person who is deprived of it.
Therefore, it destroys individualism and makes the individual change from loving himself to loving others. Therefore, it makes him exit from his private sphere to a broader one.

وجلس عن يمين أبيه:

➕ وجلس عن يمين أبيه تتميماً لقوله على فم داود النبى قائلاً[قال الرب لربى أجلس عن يمينى حتى أضع أعدائك موطئاً لقدميك ] ( مز 110 : 1) وقد شرح السيد المسيح هذه الأية الدالة على صعوده وجلوسه عن يمين أبيه ليؤكد لجماعة الفريسين

أنه هو المكتوب عنه فى الأنبياء والمزامير بقوله لهم كيف يدعوه داود بالروح رباً قائلأ [ قال الرب لربى إجلس عن يمينى حتى أضع أعدائك موطئاً لقدميك ] أى كيف يدعوه رباً إلا إذا كان مؤمناً انه هو نفسه الرب الذى نزل من السماء.

➕ وفى موضع أخر رد الرب يسوع على رئيس الكهنة قائلاً [من الأن تنظرون ابن الإنسان جالساً عن يمين عرش الله] (عب2:12)

➕ وكلمة عن يمين الله لايقصد بها أن الله محدود بحدود يمين ويسار وأمام وخلف حاشا لله أن يكون محدوداً بحدود فهو مالىء كل مكان ولا يحويه مكان ولكن كلمة يمين قالها الرب كوسيلة أيضاح للمعنى الذى يقصده وهى المقصود منها القوة والعظيمة والمقام الملكى السماوى.

St Arsanious was very cautious of talking,
and when he was asked about it, he answered:

"Often have I spoken and regretted,

but for silence I never did".

St Arsanious
The Teacher of Kings' Children

➕ He used always to remind himself saying: "Arsany.. Arsany.. Remember what you are out for". In order not to lose the way, and never deviate from the hard way..


➕ His routine was:
+ when the sun rose, he started to pray
+ then worked in braiding palm leaves till 6:00
+ then he engaged himself in reading till 9:00
+ then again to prayer



➕ In Sundays & in the Feasts, he used to stand in the desert, giving his back to the sun, and started praying with his hands up till the sun rose over on his face!!!

Therefore the Ascension of the Lord is the pledge of our ascension.
In the same manner as the Resurrection was the pledge or our resurrection,

since He is
“the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep” (1 Cor. 15:20), and
“as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive”
(1 Cor. 15: 22),
so also in the Ascension, we hear Him say:
“And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”
(John 12: 32)

on the clouds, and in heaven, and with a glorious body, and we shall be always with the Lord, in the heavenly Jerusalem the dwelling of God with men” (Revelation 21: 2-3)

on a level that is higher than matter and higher than the senses, in the likeness of the body of His glory,

among the myriads of His saints, when we shall also be glorified with Him (Rom. 8:17), when we shall be raised in glory
(1 Cor. 15:43) and consequently we shall ascend to Him in glory...

The holy Liturgy, by Fr. Guirguis Basilius, in 1957 at the Institute of the Bling Girls in Ramsis, Cairo. The blind girls sang all liturgy hymns playing the organ. It is the only copy, and was presented to Fr. Abraham Azmy by Dr. Evette Guirguis, the grand daughter of Fr. Guirguis.
