Incarnation Of the Logos
“On the Incarnation” - By Saint Athanasius
For the solitary of mankind is such that, by virtue of the Logos’indwelling in a single human body, the corruption which goes with death has lost its power over all. You know how it is when a great king enters a large city and dwells in one of its houses. Because of his dwelling in that single house, the whole city is honoured and enemies and robbers cease to bother it. Even so is it with the King of us all. He has come into our country and dwelt in one body amidst the many. In consequence, the enemy’s plans against mankind have been foiled and the corruption of death, which formerly held them in its power, has simply ceased to be. For the human race would have completely perished if the Lord and Saviour of us all, the Son of God, had not come among us to put an end to death.
THE SPIRITUALITY OF FASTING
BY H.H. POPE SHENOUDA III
On the mount of transfiguration the three people, who stood in radiance and glorious light on the Mount of Transfiguration, were people who brought fasting to perfection. For every one of them fasted for forty days and forty nights: Our Lord Jesus Christ (Matt 4:2), Moses (Ex 34:28), and Elijah (1 Kings 19:8). This magnificent scene, conceal behind it an important message that is, by conquering the body through fasting, the spirit becomes manifest and the body is transfigured
