  • Thanks @Daniel_Kyrillos for your nice words - equally importantly for me if not even more importantly I need prayers of a great person like you. I personally do not agree to changing the length of the apostles fast at all or indeed the Apokty calcu…
  • Thanks to your advice of course @mabsoota.. Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Oh my God.. Sorry @minamakar and thank you very much for bringing this to my attention.. Here is the link: Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Dear @Kerlous, I, like what @minatasgeel stated above have not heard that cantor Towfik fitted the alle on Sa'idic sharat.. Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Hi @Kerlous, I trust @Jojo_Hanna and his sources and I also appreciate your response. You make very good and valid points, but the important thing is, having lived in Egypt for a long chunk of my life, I know that there are people who would abuse th…
  • Dear @Ethioconvert84, May the Lord rest her soul in peace and give you strength and comfort.. Welcome to the forum.. Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Hi @mabsoota, Absolutely spot on. I am aware of the English and Greek terms, επακται ημέραι, where it was Copticised to ⲁⲡⲟⲕⲧⲏ and my aim is to spread the word Apokty to refer to the Coptic calculation as opposed to the Julian or Gregorian formula, …
  • Dear @Dioscoros, I cannot thank you enough for your explanation. This is a topic that our dear well-learned friend @mabsoota has taught me before, so thank you for confirming that information. I am more interested in the Coptic Synexarium and the er…
  • Hi @mabsoota, I have been meaning to reply to this post but I have also been very busy as you may be aware already. I will try to be brief and concise at the same time, don't know how! I heard the arguments you kindly shared even on this very websit…
  • The English version finally http://ophadece.home.blog/2022/03/24/english-brief-note-on-refining-coptic-dates-in-various-resources/ Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Thanks a lot dear @minatasgeel Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Thanks a million @minamakar I have always wanted a detailed answer to this question and now you have provided one.. Really grateful.. Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Dear @Dioscoros, Although not directly related to this I would be very interested to hear your take on a similar matter in the Coptic Church as Augustine has been included in the Synexarium! Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Dear @Daniel_Kyrillos,Spot on as always.. thanks a lot for correcting my expression - yes "reserved" is the right description for what I meant to say. As for the rules for meh and the like, the prefix e; usually follows a word attached to a definite…
  • @Jojo_Hanna,anok oucaqo an - `n;ok picaqo `ntyiI wasn't aware of this teaching of course, but all I can say is that unfortunately due to inconsistencies in learning, and sorry to put it bluntly like this, the lack of direction and education of the C…
  • Ⲭⲉⲣⲉ ⲛⲁⲕ ⲡⲁⲥⲁϧ @Jojo_Hanna As @mabsoota alluded Coptic grammar does not follow Greek grammar (definitely not the modern Greek grammar or koine Greek for that matter). You are absolutely right that cantors are not the best or most reliable sources wh…
  • Dear @Daniel_Kyrillos, Thank you very much for your input. I think @AltHistoryWriter787 and all (including myself above all) benefit so much from your very nice efforts and opinions. Where you made the mistakes are the following - there is no such a…
  • Dear @Jojo_Hanna You are right in writing the Greek vocabulary but the Coptic vocabulary doesn't have ⲁⲝⲓⲟⲓ Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Hi @WedeYonas, I may have time to elaborate on this later and of course I will await other people's comments, but so that we are clear, we do not speak Greek period. All the Greek loan words are Copticised and mutilated very far away from their curr…
  • @minatasgeel - agreed, at least a reason was given but that's what I have an issue with, ie when reasons are made up for the sole purpose of invention and modification! @minamakar - absolutely right, until the second quarter of the 5th century the C…

  • Ⲙ̀ⲙⲟⲛ ϩⲗⲓ ⲡⲁⲥⲟⲛ @Yoan Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Good point about the creed my teacher @minatasgeel but I have to be honest I am strongly against the synod's reasoning. Dear @WedeYonas ⲛ̀ⲧⲟⲧⲉⲛ means us, while the word for plural you is ⲛ̀ⲧⲉⲛ ⲑⲏⲛⲟⲩ.. Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ

  • Ϯϣⲉⲡϩⲙⲟⲧ ⲛ̀ⲧⲟⲧⲕ ⲉⲙⲁϣⲱ ⲡⲁⲥⲁϧ @Jojo_Hanna Absolutely right @mabsoota Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • @Jojo_Hanna, Are you referring to the creed on the question of "whole trisagion"? Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
    in Trisagion Comment by ophadece January 25
  • Thanks @mabsoota No, ⲛ̀ⲧⲟⲧ// is a derivative of ⲛ̀ⲧⲉⲛ literally to mean "from x's hand" so ϯϣⲉⲡϩⲙⲟⲧ ⲛ̀ⲧⲟⲧⲕ literally means "I accept the grace of your hand", or simply I thank you.. Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Hi @WedeYonas, I don't know if the trisagion has been converted into Coptic or not, but I know that another member has tried to do it a while ago.. You may search for the thread on another part of this forum. I don't understand what you mean by the …

  • Hi @Yoan, The ones between the glorious feast of the Nativity, 29th of Kiahk, and the glorious feast of the Annunciation, 29th of Baramhat, so basically the two months of Tubah and Amshir.. Ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲥ
  • Dear @zielona,Once again I find myself repeating myself and saying that you are a really great example for many women, let alone Egyptian women, and the Coptic Church is so lucky to have you as a member in Her. And no, I could never damn your husban…
  • Hi @PopeKyrillosHabibi,While I may be mistaken in this point (and I await other well learned people here to correct me) I would argue personally speaking that there are no canons or dogmas defining what things should be included in the confession. P…
