Dear brothers and sisters,

I have just published a collection of some of my articles and papers on Orthodox Christology and other Orthodox topics. The book is available from my publishers website. If any of you think it would be of interest then do please consider buying a copy, and passing the news of its publication to any friends who might be interested.

Thank you Abouna for such a valuable source.  Not soon, but later, I'll order my copy and spread the word to many friends of mine, and I'll even send a recommendation to my priest.

Father bless!

From the non-chalcedonian perspective?
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

Dear Brother in Christ Fr. Peter,

After kissing your hands, congratulations to you and to us!  This work will be very valuable to many I am sure. I have already sent a detailed email to all the clergy of our Diocese telling them about the publication. May the Lord continue to bless your service.

Pray for me and absolve me,
Fr. Kyrillos

It would probably be safe to assume.
