Book about Prayers and Fasts of Syrian Orthodox Church Published
Last week Lit Publications in Münster, Germany,published
the doctoral thesis of Fr. Dr. Biji Chirathilattu, the vicar
of our St. Mary's Congregation in Vienna, under the title
"Prayers and Fasts according to Bar Ebroyo, A study on
the prayers and fasts of the oriental churches". In his
book, Fr.Dr. Biji goes beyond the age-old spiritual practises
of his church based on the teachings of its canon giver Bar
Ebroyo and delineates the formative influences as well as
the present day significance of those teachings. It is a pioneering
attempt to develop a theology of prayers and fasts from the
oriental perspective. Almost all the pertinent questions regarding
our prayers and fasts like why do we pray, how should we pray,
rules and guid! elines for prayers, the efficacy and norms
of the fasts, the history of the fasts, the present day significance
of the prayers and fasts etc. are scholarly studied by the
author. This book will be an enrichment to every Syrian Orthodox
