Eleycon Imac (question)
edited December 1969
How come we say Eleycon Imac once before Peklaoc and once after, instead of just one after? (in the Gregorian Liturgy)
There has to be some type of meaning or reason.
Do you mean the priest and the deacons say it a total of two times together or that one of them says it twice.
Nevermind. I understand now. Usually the congregation starts with eleycon, then the priest says peklaos, and the shab answers in a different language. Then, the priest can continue in a different language.
But i still don't know what they did in the old days. It is supposed to be the congreagtion starts in greek, the priest says coptic, and the congregation says greek again.
