  • @paisios...The Synod did make the decision not to say it during the fifties. @Daniel_Kyrillos...please read my comments above. 
  • We know. We are working on it 
  • @paisios...Being a husband or a wife is not a rank in the Church. And what you are saying is not practical. It's good analogy to show the role of either couple in the family...but i think its too far fetched here to use to justify saying the hymn.
  • Searching from forum is not real feasible...so here I go.  @minasoliman...yes, the hymn is said in the welcoming ceremony A couple of points to consider:- The current rite of the Crowning Ceremony that is done in almost all church is missing some of…
  • My opinion is that it shouldn't be said in weddings at all :-) I think i explained why i think so here somewhere on the forum...i'll search
  • @Daniel_Kyrillos...yes it's valid because the teaching he received taught him to construct the hymn this way.  
  • @Daniel_Kyrillos...St. Cyril's liturgy is not long. In fact, I was there for abouna to finish the whole liturgy in an hour two weeks ago. It all depends on how fast abouna is going. @Jathniel...That information is kind of incorrect. In the states al…
  • Without getting into which way is more "fitting"...since there isn't really guidelines to follow to make an objective argument towards either, the text we have on tasbeha.org is from a printed source (Pascha Book of Heg Fr Attalla Arsanius El-muharr…
  • Somehow, minasoliman read my mind and put it in text. To add to that, it wouldn't be a bad idea to have Virginia as a diocese on its own, whenever the issues with Anba Michael are resolved. Don't forget that Anba Karas also have PA, which is the mai…
  • @Daniel_Kyrillos...It sounds like you are saying that Anba Angelos left the diocese because he was 'called back' to Egypt because people were angry of him. That was not the case. And while Virginia has an ok amount of copts and churches, it's in no …
  • @Joshuaa...I am not saying that what i said i agree with or accept. But, it is reality. While our home is heaven, we still live on earth and are still capable of sinning in many many ways...which is ok only when we do realize that there is a way out…
  • Guys, I lived in Egypt until I was 10 and my 2 younger brothers and none of us, plus my dad, needed it to get a cross. If anyone wants to get the cross, please go ahead...But if you are looking for a reason....there isn't really a strong one. minaso…
  • +1 :-)
  • Anyone who may have some authority or control over a service or a church or some religious entity may be upset that an 'overseer' will come and possibly change that. Yes, I know we are Christians and are supposed to be godly, but the reality is that…
  • I second @minasoliman. I can go further and say that each of the fathers had their own successes. I am just tired of the "small" changes. I hope the Pope has a long-term plan for us and just does it already, despite who it may upset....
  • The decision was made by the Pope yesterday to return Anba Angelos to Shobra. But i know for sure the R-1 visa was not "fake news" Sorry, @minasoliman.
  • I have to agree to that last sentance :-)
  • There isn't much to know or to consider. People are taking His Grace's words out of context and calling him a heretic...without trying to understand what he really means. As for going to Egypt, I know one of the main reasons his grace is going there…
  • We will not do that. The way of writing for each of us develops as we grow in age, in spirit, and in knowledge. I believe it's a good idea to recognize that to learn from our past. 
  • What]s the source of the text for all three langauges?
  • I don't think so. I don't see how knowing about something will force you to always act with the same response. I am not really talking about a characteristic of God...I am trying to understand why would knowledge imply taking the same action to us a…
  • If we get the answer the whole argument falls apart--if the creation can comprehend or understand the creator, then he is not a creation. I am not say to stop searching. But most of what we have is the "shadow" of what is true.  That being said, you…
  • Coincidentally, i watched this yesterday: Listen to the first 5 mins and tell me what you think. 
  • That's not really correct. The only "rank" that would not reconcile at that time is priests (presbyters, hegumens, bishops) and that is only so because they should of done so before the prayer when they say, "I have sinned forgive me." This is very …
  • baraka=eulogia...refers to the leftover orban presented for the Lamb to be chosen of. Like Daniel said, they are blessed by one signing, but they don't exactly have to be. While some churches break it up and distribute it to the congregation after l…
  • I feel like I spoke about this before somewhere...But, Megalou is a hymn that is set for Great Lent. It's originally Greek of three parts (http://tasbeha.org/hymn_library/view/2552):Megalou Ar,y`ereuc ic touc `e`wnac a,ranton. `Agioc `o :eoc.Kata ty…
  • You keep forgetting the Church I am talking about is lead by the same Spirit that inspired the writing for the true books. The Church was established BEFORE the books, not the other way around. So the former knows better which is true.  The analogy …
  • @RaafatAbualazm. In the OT, God didn't establish Judaism by the Torah...he established it by connecting to His creation after many many years of separation. Abraham, the father of faith, followed that voice in his head without hesitance or proof eit…
