Илија Шаула

Илија Шаула (Карловац, 4. децембар 1963) је српски књижевник, оснивач и председник Књижевне радионице „Кордун”. Пише поезију и прозу, које су до сада преведене на италијански, енглески, шпански, пољски и албански језик.

Детињство је провео на Кордуну, у селу Дуги Дол, основно образовање стекао у Крњаку, а средње у Карловцу. Са огњишта га је 1995. године отерала „Олуја”, те данас живи у граду Вест Честер, држава Пенсилванија, САД. Поезију је почео да пише као средњошколац, а неговао кроз чланство у карловачком Књижевном клубу „25 октобар” скоро од оснивања. Захваљујући клупским активностима, наступао је на песничким сусретима широм Југославије. Његов таленат запазиле су песничке величине оног доба, попут Десанке Максимовић, Танасија Младеновића, Весне Перун и Ђакома Скотија. Скоти му је чак помогао да уреди своју прву збирку „На згаришту самоће” 1989. Марта 1990. је био део оснивачке скупштине и потом члан главног одбора СКД „Сава Мркаљ" у Топуском.

The Church at Prayer

by Archimandrite Aimilianos of Simonopetra

Publisher’s note

Many readers of the addresses of Elder Aimilianos, which have been published in the five-volume series, rchimandrite Aimilianos, Spiritual Instructions and Discourses (Ormylia, 1998-2003), have frequently expressed the wish for an abridged and more accessible form of his teaching. In response, we are happy to inaugurate a new series of publications incorporating key texts from the above-mentioned collection. Other considerations have also contributed o this new project, such as the selection of specific texts which address important, contemporary questions; the need for a smaller, more reader-friendly publication format; and the necessity for editing certain passages in need of clarification, without however altering their basic meaning.

Above all, the works collected in this volume reflect the importance which the Elder consistently attached to prayer, spirituality, community life, worship, and liturgy. Thus the experientially based works "On Prayer", and "The Prayer of the Holy Mountain", which deal primarily with the Prayer of the Heart, appear first, followed by the summary addresses on "The Divine Liturgy", and "Our Church Attendance". These are in turn followed by the more socially oriented discourses on "Our Relations with Our Neighbor", and "Marriage: The Great Sacrament". Finally, the present volume closes with the sermons on "Spiritual Reading" and "The Spiritual Life", which in a simple and yet compelling manner set forth the conditions for "ascending to heaven on the wings of the Spirit".

It is our hope that The Church at Prayer will meet the purpose for which it is issued and will serve as a ready aid and support for those who desire God and eternal life in Him.
