  • It's a matter of oral source and teaching. Books text is very basic and not always uniform actually, this is looking through all known khidmit shamas books and two separate liturgy books. But M Tawfik records it with "Ka;olikon `ebolqen" as well as …
  • In preparation for Holy Week...
  • hehe...this is one of the Greek parts that were brought with Ton sina and To litho...etc. Albair from HCOC found the tracks for these hymns that is not famous in the coptic church recorded them after "copticizing" them. I can't post Albairs recordin…
  • Guys, This is not a big deal. This is exactly the reason why we celebrate the feast the other 8 months--every 29th of the coptic months, even if it has been developed into Annunciation, Resurrection, and Nativity. This same reasoning is applied to t…
  • I'd like to always say that how can you respect love above the Creator of love. If you define love as an emotion, and as human beings we are fully created by God, then emotions and love and everything else comes from God. If God tells you that it's …
  • No, we do not use white wine for the Blood...in fact, we cannot use any red wine. It must be red grape sacramental wine which is very unique and also famous in the Jewish community because they use the same wine in the Sabbath service.
  • That may be the case...But i haven't checked with rites books yet. I know for sure that if it falls between Lazarus Saturday and Easter it is not celebrated. Not sure about Last Friday of Lent. 
  • Our orthodox faith doesn't say that we gain salvation by just works, neither does it say we only gain it by faith. We are saved through our faith in Christ that can only be shown by works (faith and works are of the same importance for salvation). A…
  • That's not a clarification....that playing with words that still don't make any sense. 
  • Hehe...Really?! "Yes, we are saved by faith alone". Let me just drop the following here (@basemwilliam--you definitely knew that this passage was coming in response to you):James 2:14-26 New King James Version (NKJV)14 What does it profit, my brethr…
  • I am a bit confused on what is the intention of your comments...some clarification in clear direct words would be beneficial. I think i know where this is going...but i don't think indirect references will be helpful at all in making a point.   
  • Without getting into many details, the simple answer is that we must not take communion in a church that is not united with our church. So you can take communion in any of our sister oriental orthodox churches, but not eastern orthodox churches, or …
  • I think that will create more confusion. Almost everyone knows, including the people that may not even know how to say the psalm, that they say 3 alleluia's and then stand up. Why would you mess with that?!
  • Each psalm has 4 stanzas. some hours have two psalms, each of 4 stanzas, in which case you can choose either or even both to say. But the basic structure is 4 stanzas. The tune is to follow the 4-stanza structure. There are two "ways" in the edribi …
  • There isn't really a deacon response to the St Cyril's diptych, but the response is to the litany of the departed patriarch or the following litany of the departed in general. Despite that, I don't think M Tawfik recorded this response so your best …
  • I would try to look into it more and speak to your father of confession. in either cases, he'll have to give you an absolution to take communion elsewhere.  
  • Is there no Eastern Orthodox churches around? It possible to get to one of those churches, contact the priest in charge, while your father of confession also contacts that father to give you an absolution to take communion. 
  • Here are the daily readings: http://docdro.id/gEAti9q
  • @Zoxsasi....you didn't answer the question. I didn't ask you what you think about having virgins in heaven....I asked why does Islam (not you) say there are virgins in heaven?--despite how it may make sense to you, me or anyone else.  and Lol, you a…
  • Hello @Zoxsasi, I have a couple of questions to answer yours:- What is the purpose does Islam give for having virgins in heaven?- What for or whom to these virgins are to be in heaven? AND: Does the Bible mention anything about having virgins in hea…
  • I am currently watching this: any comments?
  • I have seen some book drop "الحقانية" from the line. 
  • To clarify that tar7 elfa3alla is an adam commentary not a watos and it's recording and most believe it's authentic. The confusion comes in the teaching that says Chi-o-oinee is said in tarh elfa3la tune--this teaching is found in some books so i do…
  • @ophadece...Psalies & Commentaries book, Anba Mettaous. Also Abouna Atalla Arsanius El-Mahraqi book of "Procession of the feasts of the cross and hosanna, and commentaries of Lent and the fifties" (1958)
  • A tai-Parthenos. 
  • @Daniel_Kyrillos...we tend to set the facts that we know and see in books and recordings, then theorize on how we got to there :-)Here is what we know and do now in church:1-Tarh elfa3alla is the adam commentary said on sunday evenings in Kiahk--the…
  • The book of Daniel is very unique. Almost all of it (leaving out the historical stories like going into the den of lions twice, or the story of the three saintly youth) shouldn't be interpreted literally. The book is on the same level as the book of…
  • @Stephanos...I forgot to say, welcome to the forum. I hope we answer any of your questions here. What kind of research are you doing though? I only ask because this specific hymn (psali) you are referencing is one of many that not much people know a…
  • This is a reference to what's in Daniel 2 (NKJV): 31 “You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. 32 This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest…
  • The simple reason is that Cantor Ibrahim simply didn't record it. His Kiahk set was done a long time ago (possibly before i was born in the late 80s) and this pachois is not really famous neither is it in many books for everyone to say it. We now ar…
