Foreword:

The Sage said: “A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season, how good it is!” (Proverbs 15:23), how wise is the man who speaks words when they are better than keeping silence! Who keeps silence when it is due, and who speaks when talk is due!

“Silence and Talk” book is a collection of articles written by the Triple Beatified His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, and were published in Watany Newspaper during 2006- 2007. His Holiness tackled the gravity of talk and its slips and the benefits of silence; given that His Holiness asserted that silence is not always a virtue. Then His Holiness takes us in a journey between silence and talk, clarifying for us the good talk and the ethics of conversation, talk and discussion.

We present this book, pleading to God in order to make it a reason of blessing and growth to all who read it, through the prayers of St. Virgin Mary, the Theotokos , St. Mark the Apostle and Martyr, the Preacher of Egyptian homes, the late Pope Shenouda III, and through the prayers of His Holiness Great Pope Tawadros II, the Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark.
