  • I kind of answered this already in my own view and it is what I was taught:An additional question, if I may: do Copts believe that anyone outside an Orthodox Christian tradition is damned, ipso facto? Please do not ask me that and expact a simple se…
  • Ana mish Basha, and Bek :-).....since I just discovered that I comment in a whole new language that everyone may understand in this world except you Zoxsasi.  To not let you continue in your usual hijacking process of discussions that is clouded wit…
  • lol Mina, I said clearly that your comment reflects the Church and probably a few priest's opinion too. You are probably just echoing the general view of the Synod - not that I agree entirely with it. Correct me if i'm mistaken here, but you said in…
  • @Zoxasasi....happy Sunday to youI'll be direct and I expect direct answers.... Although Minatasgeel probably describes the attitude a Coptic priest would take concerning this issue, it doesn't necessarily mean that ANY of this is correct!!! No. This…
  • sadly, no. This is the main issue in everything microsoft related now. The only way out of it is to turn the fonts into Unicode which I have started working on but got stuck at coding the opentype features. 
  • I am wondering if this is a file in Microsoft office or any of the Microsoft pack 2007 or newer....because that doesn't work with coptic text and jinkums. I think word changes the space before the jinkum to a non breaking space, which brings the who…
  • @RomanNomad...Apostolic succession means nothing if what the Apostles have set, preach and handed down is not the faith and doctrine believed and lived...we are moving away from your question and getting into comparative theology...and it looks like…
  • @Zoxsasi...I have to totally disagree. Unfortunately, we DO NOT have the same faith as the Catholics. We don't really believe in the same Christ since our views of His nature are not the same. This just something general without considering a lot of…
  • Regarding #1, are you sure that attendance at any Coptic liturgical service is forbidden for an excommunicate? I have attended Coptic services before; was I welcomed because I was merely an outsider—as opposed to being one who has deliberately rejec…
  • Hey Roman, Welcome to the forum. This is an interesting case you have here but it looks like you know enough already about the step that you and significant other are trying to take. Here are my own comments For: 1) Your assumption is right--she wil…
  • Youssef_Habib,It is actually not that hard all you need to do is right click on the player and select save as... But I do agree with you it is harder than before.God Bless Of course I did that, and just did it now to confirm before I post my reply,…
  • About Maspero, i might be biased to say that we just need to "not talk about it." Just for the sake of progress int he future. Ya3ny we know what happened, the government knows what happened and what was the mistake. But then we don't want to really…
  • @moderndaypharaohI think you are making a big deal out of it. NOTHING of such statements is being taught in churches. Concerning HGB Boula comments, i really think he said it by mistake. I think he meant to say that El-Sisi was the 'angel' and Chris…
  • No. The decision is official but we on tasbeha didn't upload any files for the sources refernced. We are not in direct connection to that committee. The info on the homescreen was translated from the arabic that was shared on facebook. And yes, Davi…
  • Some of the hymns are not available to share. Maybe by next Kiahk :-)
  • Actually, you do need a marriage certificate from the state to get married in the coptic orthodox church. I can get more details from my church father home when I see him but I believe that the order of things to do is this:-Register with civil regi…
  • @ophadece...it's funny how that verse is thrown around these days...and in our case here, it doesn't really matter. What did the Lord do that was not written in the Bible and has a direct effect on our Synod setting an appropriate day reading for a …
  • I'm reposting this @minatasgeel, as I believe you have fallen gravely into error. "EDIT: I find this part of your post particularly troubling - "First, before anything, I must say that the Coptic Orthodox Church Synod has the right to change any...…
  • Ophadece, i want the research done about the Apostles....not prophets. 
  • @Archdeacon...I was told about this reading around December second and the arabic reading was shared through many around that time. The church father found out around that time and told me and when I compiled the text in one file, english and arabic…
  • I am really sick right now, and a little dizzy from meds, but i'll try to comment. You have misunderstood the reason behind the change. The Synod DID NOT change the readings for the sake of the occasion but because the reading that was set had NOTHI…
  • Ya Ophadece.....why do you always have an issue against change despite any legit reasons for it?! ya ragel 7aram 3alik First, before anything, I must say that the Coptic Orthodox Church Synod has the right to change any rite, dogma, and ritual they …
  • I believe that the Discalia and the Didache can be considered part of Tradition. 
  • I don't need musical notes--i don't know how to read them. I want the old recording and I am sure all do. Don't worry, we have listened to many old recordings. For O-oniatk, C Wade3's recording is too old that the words can't be heard. If you have a…
  • minafor 1, where can we find that study?for 2, having the recording on "bakara" is actually great. atleast the recording is there. is it not possible to get a recording of that?for 4, for these hymns, we have most of them from M Tawfik. If you have …
  • :-)bera7a showaya....I am not attacking you or the hymn....I am just asking for mroe information about the hymn. so thanks for the infor you have provided.  Happy new year to you too. 
  • @minasafwat...just saying it's 'a very very old cantor from upper egypt' doesn't cut it for us here :-)Who is this cantor? Where is he from? Did he learn it from someone else? who did he teach it to and who taught it to this abouna in the recording …
  • http://tasbeha.org/hymn_library/view/1497 I wonder where did the tune come from. The first paragraph is the fast way for most hymns like Pi-epnevma and Oran enshosho. Anyone recognizes this way for the second paragraph? i hear a lot of hazzat from h…
