  • Based on the article I linked above, the simple fact that there was no formal council is enough to discredit the excommunication
  • Yes we do. The Standing Conference of Oriental Orthodox Churches does not recognize his excommunication: http://www.scooch.org/letter-to-the-eritrean-church/?fbclid=IwAR3jH8Gxwi8raytGO7hqotaSMcMnwew64mKUpL73xGLZgGrSiswZBgEl98I Until our bishops say…
  • Beloved @anba_antonios, I went to Egypt in December of 2015 and I was able to stay overnight in the Monastery of St. Mary El Sourian, attending the Koiahk overnight vigil. While at St. Mary El Sourian we visited St. Pishoy Monastery. I also went to …
  • Lol @ophadece basically said "what do you mean wdym?"
  • Not to mention that this miracle happened in an era where Muslims were destroying any paper records of Christianity, anything with the Coptic language on it, etc. And the logic of "Why is Egypt at all Muslim if they saw a 14 km^2 plateau move due to…
  • You didn't mess anything up! I encourage you to open dialogue with your father the priest. He is your father and he loves you! It may be that he didn't want you to feel obligated to answer questions from other people, or didn't want you to be put in…
  • Welcome, Raafat! Great answers by Remnkemi as well. I encourage you to check out The Christian History Podcast - christianhistorypodcast.com (it will lead to the Facebook page but you can download the Podcast on iTunes or CastBox.FM or maybe Google …
  • Jathniel, your maturity in handling this matter and your love for Christ and quest for righteousness is amazing. God bless your journey and bless you in your struggles. Have you tried introducing her to the idea of Orthodoxy? How did she respond? Yo…
  • @Mina_K you're absolutely right in the last comment - avoiding the discussion makes it harder for Church members to sympathize with fellow Copts who are gay and avoiding the discussion is dangerous. A kid goes to his parents and says "my friend has …
  • @Mina_K I encourage you to actually watch the videos. In the first one (Arabic) he discusses many successful cases, but mentions that he has never seen anyone that is over the age of 30 "convert" (for lack of a better term). But he has many successf…
  • I highly recommend you watch one or both of the below videos This one is in Arabic (if you can understand it). He is a psychiatrist of some sorts and seems to specialize in homosexuality. He describes how homosexuality comes to be (i.e. from a gen…
  • Nope! Go ahead and read the words in them and you'll see. I chose some passages that make it very obvious but you can read almost any passage from the Divine Liturgies St Basil - https://tasbeha.org/hymn_library/view/2038 "O You, THE BEING, Master, …
  • 1 - The Bailian and Cyrillian are addressed to God the Father 2 - Don't know :( 3 - The Cyrillian, Gregorian and Basilian liturgies all have different tunes. Unfortunately, most of the Cyrillians tunes are lost. Thankfully we have retained the Grego…
  • Hi Melos, At the very basic the difference between Protestantism and Orthodoxy is the Sacraments. Protestantism stemmed out of Christianity when Martin Luther "protested" against the Church. There were certain changes he wanted in the Church but the…
  • But here is a collection of glorification hymns recorded by him http://tasbeha.org/mp3/Hymns/Other_Occasions/Glorification_for_Saint_Mary/Ibrahim_Ayad.html
  • In my church, we have many Ethiopian congregants and we mention the Patriarch of Ethiopia in every liturgy. You're right Mina it is Abouna Metias
  • In most cases where you have "nem peniot en episkopos" (and our father the bishop...) you add the Metropolitan's name first (as mabsoota said above)  "nem peniot em metropolitis Abba nem peniot en episkopos abba " "and our father the metropolitan A…
  • This is how we say it in our church: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fqi4vkj5x0ut7sj/Combined Female Martyrs.mp3?dl=0
  • God has a different personality from the god of Islam. Our God is love. Their god is not love
  • If any of you guys can provide screenshots as to what exactly is happening, it will help to troubleshoot
  • Learn some hymns!!!

  • The southern diocese's Asaph Hymns Institute is working to translate some of Fr. Athanasius' books to be used as textbooks in the future. They have his permission and he actually provided them a flash drive with his sources to aid in translation. Th…
  • On Android you just click Download and the file downloads. I've seen a lot of iPhone users have trouble with Tasbeha.org downloads though, so thank you MeenaSamy for your post. God bless you
  • I agree with your points, TITL but I feel you failed to mention the other side of the exceptions. Those who have a strong foundation, and still manage to leave the church. I know many youth who had very strong foundations at a young age up until hig…
  • Here are a couple. Also, a dictionary might also be a good gift. I've included links to PDFs so you can check them out and see if they are what you're looking for before actually buying him a hard copy. So you want to learn Coptic: A Guide to Bohair…
  • Hey Pawely, here's what I do on most of my websites: @font-face { font-family: Coptic; src: url('/Coptic.otf'); } I'm assuming you can replace "Coptic" with CS Avva Shenouda and Coptic.otf with CS Avva Shenouda.otf
  • I think Severian is good with speaking/understanding Arabic, but wants to get better at reading... I'm in the same boat! I learned to read Arabic about 5 years ago (my mom wrote the alphabet in a notebook for me, what sound each letter makes, and al…
