  • I think it's ok to spell or pronounce names different to differentiate. Like:- Zecharias (nkjv for John the Baptist father) and Zechariah (nkjv old testament prophet). - Judas, Jude, Judah

  • --In the Copic Church where I grew up all men (deacons or not) were given Holy Communion in the main Alter, the young pre-pubescent girls were also given Holy Communion in the main Alter. Post-pubescent girls and women were not. This was to emulate …
  • --The church needs to abandon the old testament (as in pre-new covenant) traditions regarding women approaching the Bosom of the Father, the Holy of Holies.I am sorry, but the priesthood that we have now is not "made up" from the old testament but i…
  • --The pews are next to each other, yes. But on the other hand, men are allowed near a consecrated alter... women are not. No. That's an incorrect statement. NO ONE is to enter the altar other then those who may serve in the altar. That's not all men…
  • @minasoliman...I think all of this is in the works. The accomplishment actually is the fact that it's out there in arabic. No one used to get these written decisions anywhere but recently the church has been using facebook to make announcements and …
  • Ok. I really didn't wanna reply to this post but maybe it's time to do so.  So one issue that i see in the way we are looking at this is because we are just comparing women and men and their roles in church. But this is not the case when you are tal…
  • Translation: The Holy Synod Decisions June 2016 The final and general session of the Holy Synod, held this morning (Thursday, June 6th, 2016) and headed by his holiness the Pope resulted in a bundle of decisions and recommendations and what follows …

  • That's probably true. But please consider that these liturgies are very old. What we have now is a combination of many old manuscripts.  I would like to ask: what are you trying to accomplish exactly?
  • We didn't pick and choose. Those saint that wrote the liturgy did. You can see the difference in the commemoration of the 3 liturgies. As for the commemoration in tasbeha, it was probably at set at some point of time by monasteries in which tasbeha …
  • In the Commemoration of saints, mostly the leads or "princes" of a specific rank is said. Also, each liturgy's commemoration is unique to the father that wrote it (St. Basil, St. Gregory's or St. Cyril's). The Synod though allowed that at the end, e…
  • In the coptic church:- A person should have a relationship with a specific monastery to even be considered for the vow of monasticism. It's not as simple as just leaving the world simply because some may take it as the easy way out, considering how …
  • @quinas...i have heard of similar cases before. This may be called a "separation" i guess for the lack of a better word. yes, it may not look like she has not done a sin, but we cannot justify this by our own judgement. I recommend, and I do hope yo…
  • @Bmoaanes2...it's not as simple as that. Every marriage case is unique and has a very specific way of dealing with it, so there will always be different results as to what happened to both parties in relation to participating in the church sacrament…
  • I was listening to Anba Rafael sermon at SI church yesterday and he said the following about our hymnology in churches (around min 1:17:30):
  • I think this all depends on their relationship with their father of confession. Confession/Repentance is also a mystery that is as important as Communion.
  • I agree with you on that point. Can you provide some examples though?
  • @ophadece...i don't think Remnkemi meant that OB is based on an opinion. He is saying that what Erian Moftah did was based on an opinion. Nonetheless, it is also an opinion that we must undo what Erian moftah did. Because here is the issue with most…
  • Despite how correct or incorrect my opinion is:I think he is just being a great musician when he is speaking about our coptic hymnology. When he says that "the hymns changed"....i think that he is assuming that our alhan were once musically tuned. T…
  • And it's already on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Bright-Saturday-Rite/dp/1511533617/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1460489010&sr=1-4&keywords=bright+saturday
  • :-) are we the only ones desperate enough to go to Egypt and buy entire bookstores of liturgical based books?!
  • I'll check when I am home for you. I haven't really looked at that book in details since we have our own Pascha Book. If you can get tarteeb el bay3a books, just buy me a set with you...or i'll get to egypt first and get us both copies.
  • lol. You're funny sometimes early in the morning :-) I recommend getting them from Egypt. It's a great set of books:1-Palm Sunday to Wednesday of Pascha2-Covenant Thursday3-Good Friday4-Bright Saturday and Resurrection Feast I used one of them a lot…

  • Now that you say that, I have a copy of St. Mina's holy week books. It's a 4 part set starting with one book for Palm Sunday - Wednesday of Pascha. It a very good source and nicely done in my opinion. And yes, the book has that A penchois before Fey…
  • I recommend this book but it's not online:http://www.stmosesbookstore.org/index.php/books/church-books/service-of-the-deacons-detail
  • ehhh, it's not fortune...its' really how things work in life. we don't have to be the experts in everything. there is an arabic saying that says: eddi el3eesh le-khabazino--give the bread to its bakers. Each person has a set of skills or knowledge t…
  • @ophadece,:-) that's really fine. I don't expect cantors to be teachers of the language. 
  • Btw, M Mikhail records the one for lent as: Pashois Eisos Pikhrestor, ernisteven....
