    i hope u guys have this videos in america, cause we sure do in australia, yeh and although there not huge hollywood blockbusters, and their film quality and effect arnt awsome, they are really life changing.
  • we got all of those videos; i think they make them in egypt and send them all around the world
  • mine are (in no special order): St. Mary, St.Mary of Egypt, St.Shenouda the Archminderite, St.George, and Abouna Andriaws
  • um...excuse my ignorance...but who's Saint Mary of Egypt??
  • I like to call them my Fantastic Five...

    Although we haven't heard of any miracles from some of them, I still admire them for the hard lives that they lived.
  • Hectic 5 ay?
    well....i dont think 5 is a big enough number but hay why not?
    1. St Mary
    2. St Marina The Monk
    3. St Marina The Martyr
    4. Archangel Michael an St Bishoy (My Chuch) <<<it ROCKS!!
    5. St Shenouda the archimandrite <<<Our Monestary

    by the way St Mary The Egyptian is the maddest saint...i dont clearly remember but yeah she was a prostitute an she tried to enter a church once but there was this force like a wall blocking her out...she prayed for her sins an i think went out and lived in the desert... you should read the synxarium or watch the video shes an excellent role model for all the times where you think god will never forgive you! and ofcourse he does because GOD IS LOVE!! 4 shu!
    -Mariam :)

    [glow=red,2,300]Dios los Bendiga!!!!![/glow]
  • can u tell us more about the picture.
  • [glow=red,2,300]Happy Pentecost!!![/glow]

    I will be happy to tell u G.J. I. about the Icon of St Bishoy:

    St. Bishoy was born in the Egyptian town of Shansa in the 4th century. He had six brothers. His mother was told in a vision by an angel to give one of her sons to serve the Lord and she told the Lord whom ever He wanted. The angel took the frail and and skinny St Bishoy by the hand as his pick. The mother offered a physically stronger son but the angel said St Bishoy was the one the Lord chose!

    Much later, St Bishoy went into the desert of Shiheet and became a monk by the hand of Abba Bemwah, who by the way also ordained another great Desert Father, St John the Short. who was a monk. St Bishoy struggled alot in spiritual asceticism, tempatations and worshipped so lovingly that he was given the grace to see the Lord Jesus Christ!!! He was also a defender of the faith and died in the desert in the peace and love of Our Lord and Saviour jesus Christ!!! May our dear Coptic brother, St Bishoy, pray 4 us!!! Amen

    2. Amba Wanas *pray 2 him when you loose things!*

    i thought u prayed to St. Anthony wen you loose things, or maybe thats juss the Catholics

    Wel I do think it's Anba Wanas, I've never heard about St. Anthony as the Saint for finding things. Anyways, btw Boricou u said my the blessings of our Coptic brother St. Bishoy..., don't u mean Coptic Father??

  • My main five are, in no specific order:
    1) St. Demiana
    2) St. Mohrail
    3) St. George, the prince of martyrs
    4) St. Anna Simon, and
    5) St. Philopateer

    I have many more, of course, but they're too many to list :)
  • abba bishoy also carried our Lord Jesus Christ on his back. ur probably rite about amba wanas as the saint to pray to wen u loose things. i went to a Catholic school, and for the Catholics its St. Anthony.
  • Oh Cool, St. Anthony was Coptic though, do they know that??

  • [glow=red,2,300]Happy Pentecost!!![/glow]

    Ur absolutely rite defender...my sincerest apologies...

    May Our dearest Coptic Father, St. Bishoy, pray for us.!!!

    Yes, the catholics know St Anthony is Coptic...He is venerated by the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholics and Anglicans as well i believe. St Anthony is pre-schism...
  • That's awesome, I never knew that. Yet the protestants do not believe he's a Saint. They also do nt believe that the Ever-Virgin Mary was an ever-virgin. Anyways I will post that in another thread, gotta go to Church....
