I don't know how to phrase this, and I hope my post won't be taken in a bad way; but given that the Armenian Church is our sister Oriental Orthodox Church, did it NOT occur to anyone in our Church (the Clergy & hierarchy) to have the names of those who suffered at the hands of the Turks recorded in the Church's commemoration of Saints? At least even mention this in the Magma Al Edisseen?
I find the Coptic Orthodox Church a bit aloof at times. We don't have much in terms of Church unity, and those with whom we are united with, we don't even recognise their suffering for the sake of Christ.
There's a book called Black Dog of Fate by Peter Balakian that simply gives an absolutely heart-wrenching eye witness accounts of countless number of families who were remarkable witnesses to Christ in their suffering.
Should we not petition our Church to add these names in our commemoration of saints? I'm saying this because whilst Turkey is adamantly focused on denying that there was even a genocide, we should be working to remind the world of what happened to our faithful followers. I think this is a critical time to bring to light such sufferings and not forget these saints.
