and lastly does someone have the part of the verse of cymbals for st.Marina

  • Dear @AndrewRezk
    The word is Kirie and I believe it is misspelt as it should end in an 'ayya' or "e". It means lord.
    I am not sure what those deacons said in the recording you gave the link for, but I have an inkling they were making things up. There is another title which is sometimes used for St. Abanoub saying "aba Abanoub beramnehisi", which means St. Abanoub the Nihisian (from a town called Nehisi). Take care this aba as in St Mina refers to saint spells with a 'bei' rather than the one with a double 'waida' which refers to clergy ranks, monks, etc.

  • Thank you ophadece
  • As I'm from the church of St. Abanoub, i can provide insight to this.
    1- For the verses of the cymbals, either Piagios Kiri (as in sayyed/master) Apanoub or Apanoub piRemNehis (al-Nehisi) are fine.
    2- There are 2 doxologies- a partial one is floating around online, but a complete one is on the Coptic Reader app put out by the South US Diocese. I cant listen to the recording you have right now, but if it starts "Enthok ou-alou ensav-e" its the CR one.
    3- The general Verse for any female martyr is: Ti-alou en-sav-e emparthenos /ti-sotp enkiria emmi / tishelet ente pi-ekhristos / ti-agia
    St. Marina's is a bit different according to the app ive mentioned:
    Shere ti-alou emparthenos/ ti-semne em-panagia/ tishelet enkatharos / ti-agia emmee Marini
  • ok i found the doxology for abanoub but i can't find an audio of it. is there a place (not coptic reader) where i cant find it?
    sorry for my english
  • I think we should all start learning Coptic as a language in its own right.
  • I'am able to read it. It's easy, but i'm not able to understand the meaning of the words.
  • @Zoxasi consider buying "So You Want to Learn Coptic?". It's a well-put-together guide of the Coptic language
