Many are the lectures which I delivered on "Spiritual Wars".

In this book, I shall speak to you about eleven of these spiritual means. They are:

Prayer, The Holy Bible, Reading the lives of the saints, Contemplation, Spiritual Practices, Giving account of oneself, Confession, Holy Communion, Fasting, Alms Giving and Service...

These means are essential for every person.

No matter how high the spiritual level of a person may be, he could never survive without these means. They are his continual spiritual food. If he kept away from them or neglected practising them, the heat of his spirit will become lukewarm and he will expose himself to many dangerous combats...

The material of this book is the fruit of lectures that were given in the sixties, either in Cairo, Alexandria or Damanhour. Parts of these lectures were published in “El-Keraza” magazine and “Watany” newspaper. We have collected all these lectures in order to publish this book ...

There is no doubt that a separate book could be written on each chapter, but we wanted to present all these topics to you in a concentrated way.

Try to apply and practise these discussed topics in your life.

May God be with you, guiding your steps towards Him.
