A great man is one who collects knowledge the way a bee collects honey and uses it to help people overcome the difficulties they endure - hunger, ignorance and disease!
- Nikola Tesla

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

Svetozar Steve Pejovich

While many Americans don’t give their freedom of choice a second thought, Svetozar “Steve” Pejovich has constructed an entire economic philosophy around the concept.

Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, during the reign of the Nazis and raised under the oppression of the post-war Socialist regime, he knew first-hand the privations of not being able to exercise the rights many U.S. citizens take for granted.

.

Pejovich championed his free-market stance at the Texas A&M Department of Economics where he taught for over 25 years.

To honor his distinguished contributions to the field, as well as to inspire and educate generations of Aggies, the College of Liberal Arts and former Pejovich student Sheila Amin Gutiérrez de Piñeres ’88 have established the Professor Svetozar Pejovich Future Leaders Award for Texas A&M University undergraduate economics students.

The award is an endowed fund for the benefit of Aggies taking part in The Heritage Foundation Internship Program. Students selected for the coveted spots will receive scholarships from this award to defray, and hopefully one day cover, the costs of interning in Washington, D.C.

Founded in 1973, The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institution—a think tank—whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, and individual freedom. The internship program attracts young leaders of the highest caliber who are given substantive work, acquire policy expertise, and build marketable skills.

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.
