Christ is in our Midst!
  • Greetings all,

    My name is Arsenios and I'm an Eastern Orthodox Christian.  I joined this site because the Coptic Church has always interested me, and I'm here to learn a bit more.

    In particular, and I can make threads about this when the time comes, I wanted to know about Coptic Monastic spirituality, and find out why some of you who are converts converted to Coptic Orthodoxy and not Eastern Orthodoxy.

    Peace,
  • my muslim friend introduced me to his coptic friend; this is how i found the orthodox church!

    Ah, sweet.  One of the first Orthodox friends I had was/is a convert to Oriental Orthodoxy, particularly Coptic Orthodoxy.  And one of the first Orthodox books I ever read was one by HH Pope Shenouda that I downloaded from a website.

    Welcome,

    Note that Coptic is an ethnicity; we are first and foremost Oriental Orthodox.
    Eastern Orthodox is to Oriental Orthodox, as Greek Orthodox is to Coptic Orthodox.


    Yes, I know that.  Forgive me for not being specific.  :)


Memorial for HH Pope Shenouda
