  • Dear @AndrewRezk There you go: http://tasbeha.org/hymn_library/index.php?a=view&id=2172 Oujai khan ebshois
  • Di niente @AndrewRezk Oujai khan ebshois
  • Sorry @AndrewRezk, there you go: http://tasbeha.org/hymn_library/index.php?a=view&id=195 Oujai khan ebshois
  • Hi @AndrewRezk This hymn is not binishdi, it is called "abakran". Here is the link: http://tasbeha.org/hymn_library/index.php?a=view&id=699 Oujai khan ebshois
  • Hi @Daniel_Kyrillos,£ refers to menenca ¾ according to Dr. Kamal Farid it is the same like ½ but with a "Greek-shaped" sima; I do appreciate if anything it looks like a ghamma, but I believe he is absolutely right, as a renowned teacher of the Copti…
  • No @Daniel_Kyrillos there is no tune and certainly it's not based on the national anthem. @minatasgeel would explain it better, but basically a recording was found in which one cantor (can't remember who) received the patriarch (I believe Pope Kyril…
  • Some people argue that emperor Constantine and his mother queen Helana should not be considered saints. I will not speak about pope Shenouda now because I don't understand well theological matters but as @minasoliman is saying, if he denied theosis …
  • Dear @ElGawly, Many thanks, the app looks very useful and interesting, may God reward you and all the people who were involved in this work. One thing though I would like to have been able to change the background colour but I can't seem to find any…
  • Dear @ShareTheLord, Originally the liturgy was written in Greek mainly and later it was converted into Coptic with the preservation of Greek parts. The Greek was the language of the Bible initially and it was the spoken language of the empire ruling…
  • Dear @Cairo, Very well said. I guess you hit the nail right on the head, as being Orthodox by definition is to follow the forefathers and the apostles from whom we received the faith, the way it was handed to us. There is no harm in having had many …
  • Dear @mikeforjesus, Thank you very much for your reply. All your posts make sense to me and they are well written. I was just confused by the latest link and I had already missed the post before @mabsoota's reply, so it is my fault. Just to make sur…
  • Dear @mikeforjesus, Forgive me for being so thick but I thought overall you echoed what I wanted to say, or have I misunderstood your point? The main thing is I hope I have not offended you.. Oujai khan ebshois
  • Dear @ItalianCoptic, Thank you very much. Very well said. Oujai khan ebshois
  • There is no tune variation. It is the normal tune but with strange instruments as far as my ears can make out, but I am not sure. It will be interesting to see what instruments they got consecrated! Oujai khan ebshois
  • I am not sure the bishop will have a different view. The most important thing these days is to please the congregation.. Isn't that what Christ would have wanted too? Haha.. Eldeen yosr walaysa 'osr.. La tonaqesh wala togadel ya a7' @dann100 Oujai k…
  • If for the sake of convenience we are looking for a tool to erase sins we could create a bot and pray for it in each liturgy so that God accepts its powers! However what we learnt in church is that they are not called fathers of confession for no re…

  • I don't think that is a good idea.. To have a father of confession is to form a personal relationship with a senior member of the clergy.. Oujai khan ebshois

  • Ekhrestos anesty Hi @danny, All those hymns are said after the Coptic Pauline but since it is not prayed in Coptic all associated hymns like the virtues, tou makariou, behmot ghar and so on are deceptively prayed before the interpretation to whiche…
  • Ekhrestos anesty Hi @Daniel_Kyrillos, what do you mean by baralex? I know different ways exist but generally most sources fit it onto the long glorification verse "arebresbawin". I hope this helps.. Oujai khan ebshois
  • Ekhrestos anesty Hi @Daniel_Kyrillos, in answer to your question plural in Coptic is plural, pretty much like English, i.e. no masculine plural distinctly different to feminine plural as is the case in other languages. Since no other member chipped…
  • Ekhrestos anesty Hi @Daniel_Kyrillos, I can answer some questions: 2- the forefathers likened the virtues to the precious stones of the holy city and therefore applied the same tune. 5- the number refers to the word "virtue" which is feminine rath…
  • Dear @minasoliman,Let me answer your queries in an uninformed way, much less learned than you are I know, but I am sure you will understand and find more evidence than what I can say. First of all you said: "I may have reacted rashly and compared th…
  • Dear all,Sorry I had some busy days at work, and wasn't able to reply sooner. I have replied to a similar argument before on this very website when Fr. Peter Farrington was active. I will try to relist those points, although I can't remember all the…
  • Dear @minatasgeel, Why do you have that kind of opinion? Dear @minasoliman, I disagree with you and with the synod on the point of the Nicene Creed.. Oujai khan ebshois
  • Not a bad effort in terms of Coptic. Certainly better than other versions I saw online, albeit still fraught with mistakes.. May God bless all efforts for the glory of His Holy Name..Oujai qen P[c
  • Very well said @minasoliman.. I can't agree more Oujai khan ebshois
  • Thank you very much @minasoliman. Perhaps the teaching then goes that the altar deacons represent the angels with the trumpets??? I agree that the liturgy means we are already in the Kingdom, but I do not think this means we are counted as "saved" a…
  • The practice of old, which I believe is actually correct, is that altar deacons do not greet one another. The reason I think is that they represent angelic hosts who have already made peace and overcome the corporeal problems (yes they were spirits …
