  • Philomena is not a saint in our church, nor in the Roman Catholic rite. She was decanonized by Rome a while back. Since she isn't and never was a Coptic saint, she has no Synaxar entry, no feast, and no veneration.
  • It's always important to remember that your sins are not a part of you. We all, myself first and foremost, sin. Let's take lying for example. When I tell a lie, I am not a liar in God's eyes. I'm a person who lied. The same goes for any other sin. '…
  • @EsmoEpchois my church said the Psalm in its long tune in Coptic, then said it in the short way in Arabic and English. We then started the Melody listed in Coptic Reader. As for what hymns could be said, there is Genethlion (aka the Paralex of Pijin…
  • If the pronoun `n;o is used, then the form of the verb "to be" used with it should be te. If `n;ok was used, pe would be appropriate
  • If I understand correctly, you're saying that the Synod is saying Chalcedon was correct/we accept Chalcedon. If anyone told you that, that is a flat-out lie.However, hindsight is 20/20, and we now see that there was most likely a semantics issue bet…
  • Separation of church and state (government) means:-the Church doesn't have any "votes" in governments, but a voice and opinion like any other citizen does-the Church will not side with any political party or group-the Church's decrees are not legal …
  • It's important not to treat homosexuality like a disease or condition, like the flu, but rather count it with other sins, like lying or coveting. "Treatment" implies an inherent abnormality, as if the person is their sin. //@monfret websites like co…
  • The U.S. changing the embassy location goes against what the church has said in the past: That Jerusalem is a world holy site and that secular organizations should, excuse my French, keep their noses out of it. Trump did exactly the opposite. So of …
  • Fasting is not about not eating animal products, it's about denial of the flesh; admit it, you love steak more than fooul or falafel. 99.999% of people do! So when we say, "In honor of , Lord, I'm denying myself these things." That being said, if yo…
  • @Lovejoypeace_ the YouTube channel "Learn Coptic Hymns" gives great instructional videos with hazzat (notes, but less organized and more Egyptian) along with ways to download them. As for during silent prayers, don't be afraid to start praying you…
  • @Lovejoypeace_ I also have ADHD, so I can share some of my tips.1) Focus deeply on the words. Learn them, understand them, live them, and maybe it won't seem so boring. That helped me get over long Coptic hymns like Pek`;ronoc and Tenen `o;en1.5) Be…
  • @mabsoota darn, I meal prepped for next week already :((
  • @mabsoota about getting a hold of "Melodies", I've only seen copies sold from the convent in Georgia.. perhaps they're sold online. Or, download Coptic Reader and buy the book from there (where it's cheaper and smaller ;))
  • @ophadece and @mabsootaThe Southern Diocese has released many books: kholagis, annual and Kiahk psalmodies, and the 2 you might be interested in: a book titled "The Service of the Deacon" and an index of communion melodies throughout the year. I own…
  • @ophadece @mabsoota thank you guys so much! God bless you
  • Jesus is not necessarily our intercessor in the same way the martyrs or church fathers or St. Mary are- they intercede to Jesus! All the above comments are saying the same thing, and in more detail.Now as for the Protestant/Orthodox line, we conside…
  • TL;DR answer: There is no one author of the Creed. Probably a certain bishop came up with the words and proposed it, but every single other bishop present at the council had to agree with it. 
  • @Nicholas_83 in Greco-Bohairic: Ar-eshan Efnouti ou-oosh Ti-shep-ehmot en-totf em-Efnouti
  • Ok so just to be caught up: BEFORE THIS MESS, who would of been/was bishop or met of the DMV area (Deleware to Virginia)?Who is Anba Michael? I wasn't alive when he was in the area so I'm very confused. AFTER THE ORDINATIONS AND ENTHRONEMENTS, will …
  • @Lovejoypeace_ I'll type one up for you :)
  • As someone in Virginia, at the largest church in Virginia, we really would like our "own" bishop. If anyone heard about Abouna Bishoy Andrawes and the drama surrounding him, what we had to do was either contact Anba Youssef (who was far away) or H.H…
  • @tenoosht So neither the Basilian nor Cyrillian liturgies are addressed to the Holy Spirit?
  • The priests and servants at my church have almost a saying about dating: "Dating and marriage aren't separate!" What they mean is that dating should be with intent to find someone to marry. Now you see kids as young as 10 having boyfriends and girlf…
  • @Lovejoypeace_ you can't "lose" it in the sense of doing something that will have it taken away from you forever, just like that. But if you reject it, you are losing it. Make sure that distinction is clear Pray for me
  • The human race cannot lose salvation- Christ died on the cross to ensure that. However, we as individuals can stray from God and thus lose our heavenly reward. Even if we stray, though, we can always repent and ask for forgiveness and we will always…
  • If Abouna pulls his hand away, don't try and pull it back; it's humility. However, remember that there are certain times when kissing the hand is inappropriate or even forbidden. For example, during Holy Week after Wednesday (i think) we are banned …
  • Ok, so I'm just going to reiterate this point: Chalcedon was a mess. There were a LOT of factors other than dogma that influence the schism. Someone more knowledgeable than me can explain more. God willing the issues will be resolved soon
  • @ophadece I can think of a language- English :))In all seriousness, I understand your point. I believe you're referring to the phrase "almoc tou Dauid by saying "origin of the phrase" but really it's not GB Coptic- that phrase is, as I said, entirel…
  • @bashandy just a quick correction: the Chima letter in GB should not have an added e sound to the front... the same with x and '. Mlm. Ibrahim and the Chorus have been pronouncing [ as a CH sound for the past couple years as they try to be more cons…
  • @ItalianCoptic transliteration of Coptic is akin to the "Franco-Arabic" used to help those who can't read proper Arabic follow along (besm al Aab wel Ebn wal Ro7 alQodos...)For Coptic, there are no special characters:Khen efRan emEfyot nem epShiri n…
