  • "Jesus is the incense" is to match the preceeding paragraph: "The incense is Mary, the incense is in her womb, which she will borne, to forgive us our sins."
  • I think you were the one who didn't understand me...I can propose to a bishop or a priest the idea to establish a church view and the best way to deal with homosexuality. I am meant to say that this idea will be much more effective than simply answe…
  • I recommend looking at the big picture and reaching to those of authority that can establish change in morale. Of the current morale is affecting a big number of people, why deal with each separately?!  Sometimes, they choose not to.  If they could…

  • What would be the problem with you guys reaching out to some priest or even some bishops in the US concerning doing a combined work for this topic??? I don't think they'll ever be a better time for it...
  • Let's not just through out general judgmental words...be specific in what you think is wrong with the text.
  • this sounds like the mohayyar for the Virgin....i don't have the exact text but it exists.  and that book looks like Fr Athanasius El-Makari book from the set of the rites. 
  • This was closed on the hope of not causing arguments. You guys have problems with these songs referenced, and you think they are serious, then you are welcome to contact a bishop with detailed reasoning. I'll also be happy to contact (or begin a dia…
  • Miracleseek....I really don't think comments on our forum are the best advices you can get for something as serious and as life-changing as what you are mentioning. You need to find professional individuals, ideally Copts, to help and answer all you…
  • I have the days katameros in Coptic...I can check some days readings if anyone can provide me with which...
  • of course we have but all of them would not be proper for expression of a biblical idea...if we agreed or not bilingualism is a pillar of coptic tradition that we can not get rid of I like this reason :-)
  • I am locking this post...I think we have exhausted all objective opinions. We just keep showing our hate and intolerance to others' doings and end up judging/condemning them rather than their actions. We dare to do so here because we are hiding behi…
  • Why can't we ever be objective in our discussions and just keep comments to a minimum?!!! Life will be much easier and beneficial for everyone this way.   
  • I wanted to reply to this before minasoliman comment, but here I am now. We will NOT discuss fasting from sexual relations before communion here. I believe that this matter is private to married couples and it will not be beneficial for anyone else…

  • Priests have the authority to give absolutions to the people but un doing so they are taking responsibility for whatever they are absolving the person from. Considering that, I doubt they'll give the absolution so freely without reason.

  • The 9 hour rule is first, the minimum number of hours. Second, it is the rule and anything else is an exception for some that get a specific absolution for whatever reason. This absolution is mostly given by FOC but it can also be given by any pries…

  • I would love to know which monk shared these....since I am at the monastery right now, i can get all on a hardrive directly ;-)
  • The fifties are over... I hope you remember this for next year :-)
  • Zoxsasi, say whatever your church deacons say. It's really that simple.
  • When i said that, I was referring to the full concept of the procession between Ascension and Pentecost (if it was to be 3, or 7, sunday or all days)...
  • I'll wait for that information. And I am with you on Anba Mettaous book...but despite what his grace is saying (or the many people that write books and he edits), we do whatever the Synod said...churches that don't, must carry the responsibility of …
  • @Drew...i believe you are in the states...give me a year that your church was established and started doing this...and if possible those who started "having disputes on this procession"....even though, atleast in my opinions, whatever we do here in …
  • Anba Abakir should have been made Metropolitan of Europe (at the very least).  @Zoxasasi...you need to stop with these absurd statements towards what you think should or should be done in the Church. And you do know this...but you would just like to…
  • Drew, books say that you must say ekhrestos anisti after afrek etfe and before ekhrestos anilipsees. Taking it further with o nim nai and ya kolo sofoof is.... acceptable to me if you have the time. C Ibrahim said seven because up to a couple of yea…
  • @minasoliman...the answer is no. No one enters the altar except with a tonia. Also, the procession is NOT a canon....it's a rite that can change as the Synod sees fit. Actually, even canons can be changed with the Synods approval.

  • Yes. We carry both icons because you are always celebrating the Resurrection first, then the Ascension....you say the Resurrection doxology first, then the Ascension. 
  • It's not that the Synod's inaccurate, it's the statement of that deacon. It's only 3 processions around the altar...here is the best example:
  • I am also interested in some history about this.....Despite that, the CURRENT rite is:-On the day of the feast, it's a full regular procession (3 int he sanctuary, 3 in the church, and another one int he sanctuary)-On the days between Ascension and …
  • HG Bishop Eklimandos...I do have to say that it's hard for me to pronounce it....and I am a fob...lol Anyways, Congrats Canadians....who live on the east :-)
