Hi everyone, this is my first post! My questions concern the Agpeya and the feast days, martyrs days and other holy days of the Coptic Church.
In the Catholic "Liturgy of the Hours" which is the Catholic version of the prayers for the hours of the day... the psalms, readings, intercessions, antiphons...etc change according to the season and whether a Feast/Memorial/Solemnity is ocurring on a particular day(s).
In my copy of the Agpeya it contains the prayers for each of the hours with no change noted for special feast days, martyrs days..etc I asked Coptic friends of mine about this and they said that the Agpeya never changes but that on special holy days for Jesus, the saints and martyrs they have Tasbeha in the church.
So my question is...if the Agpeya prayers remain the same throughout the year for each of the hours even on a holy day then would the prayers for Tasbeha be considered the special prayers that are reserved for these holy days separate from the Agpeya? and is the Coptic Synaxarium read as well at Tasbeha?
Thanks and God bless
