I think that there is a difference between announcing that we are fasting to direct attention to ourselves - which is what the Pharisees did - and just saying that we a…

I really feel guilty and ashamed when reading all your posts about how much effort you do in prayer... may God bless you and please pray for me a sinner..
Probably I am the last one to give advise, but I just want to add something I recently hear…
I'm really happy to find people defending the Truth that much :)
However, Zoxsasi started this really important topic and I'm still wondering why some people do move to Protestantism then? What is it that we do or dont't do which cause this to occu…

Even in the holy liturgy - its priest-congregation-priest-deacons responses.. there's no time in the Liturgy to pray for yourself. When can you do that??

Lol I don't get bored easily! It's hard to be patient with something when you don't have the talent for it :P
Two days was more than enough. I thought.
Wow! very nice!
Where can I find the original audio and text for this passage? (I mean with a priest praying with this tune)

I think this is a great idea. Does anyone know the days of the week and the hours (e.g. 1st, 3rd, 6th, etc...) in Coptic? That would be great. Thanks a lot.
