  • How does anyone benefit in a situation like this? I'd be 100% okay with having NJ as an Archdiocese if HH was actually here. With all respect to him, we are almost at 5 years under his leadership and "the Archdiocese" hasn't seen him once. He visite…
  • Mina, How do priests and churches reject a Bishop?? This sounds contrary to what we preach and the authority and gifts given to the Bishop
  • I just saw a Facebook post detailing the ordination words HH Pope Shenouda Ordained Bishop Michael with - specifically detailing the 7 or 8 churches he started alone. Most in Virginia and then one in Maryland and one in Pennsylvania. http://director…
  • One of my senior priests always says that God gets His time and the world gets its time once we have given God's His. The only time he rushes the liturgy is if there is a baptism before and he is the only priest present or if there is a funeral afte…
  • But why do we need an intercession? Does it make our prayer more heard? If we say "Thy will be done", how can asking for prayers from 30 saints, angels and tetas change the will of God?
  • Not to divert the conversation, but is there an answer to the original question :). I am curious to read this Liturgy. Old (anything other than our current 3) liturgies amaze me
  • The daily Gospel response follows the previous Sunday's Gospel response. So basically, from Kiahk 1 until the Third Saturday, it is Tentee Nem Pi Shere Tismos. Then from the Third Saturday until Kiahk 27 (I think 27 because 28 is Paramoun) it is Ten…
  • Is there a summary of their decisions/what they talked about (that can be public)?
  • Just curious- why does HH appoint Bishops who have responsibilities in Egypt to take care of monasteries here in North America. For example, HG Bishop Botrus for two monasteries in the US and now Bishop Makarious?
  • http://www.youtube.com/user/stmarkclev?feature=watch Just scroll down the page and you see both priests wearing them.
  • Not trying to make any sort of problem-- I live in NJ and since we are part of the Archdiocese, any Bishop can come and go freely with permission of the Pope. I can't tell you how many Bishops are here (or were here) after Easter. I am just curious …
  • So can cymbals be played starting tonight and into tomorrow?
  • [quote author=Biboboy link=topic=14367.msg164161#msg164161 date=1365644416] Agape, The very short answer: Transubstantiation is Catholic and Orthodox, Consubstantiation is Lutheran. Transubstantiation means that the substance of bread and wine a…
  • [quote author=Orthodoxy link=topic=14367.msg164154#msg164154 date=1365628772] Copticuser20, The orthodox church does not employ terms to define this change. It's simply recognized as a mystical change and left at that. Some fathers have tried to co…
  • It is good to begin both papacies with a strong relationship with other churches. Our church and the Catholic church haven't met in a while (Pope Shenouda and Pope John Paul II). It looks good on Pope Tawadros' side, personally greeting and congratu…

  • -The Beginning Ode (After Ten Theeno, before Psali before 1st Hoos) -Psali Adam and Batos before Hooses and before Commemoration -Lenten tune for Commemoration of Saints and Lobsh Watos There may be something else.
  • According to a facebook page for Pope Tawadros news (i dont think its affiliated with him): الانبا غبريال : الأحد رسامة 7 أساقفة جدد وتجليس 4 أساقفة علي إيبارشيات أكد نيافه الأنبا غبريال أسقف بني سويف أن قداسة البابا تواضروس الثاني سيقوم يوم الأح…
  • I heard HH is also forming more dioceses in the US and seating Bishops that day also. Does anyone know if this is true and if it is who will be seated where?
  • [quote author=geomike link=topic=14254.msg163174#msg163174 date=1360129489] Does anybody have a recording of a deacon reciting the response, "Stand in the fear of God. Let us hear the Holy Gospel from the mouth of our honored and righteous father, t…
  • My cousin had her wedding on Easter. I think the only restriction to the date of the wedding is it must be on a non-fasting day.

  • When I saw this, the first person that came to mind was Pope Kyrillos VI. I also believe it is what Je Nai nan posted. I posted a picture about a month ago asking what it was here: http://tasbeha.org/content/community/index.php/topic,13856.msg161085…
