  • A bit late to the party, apologies! @Remnkemi Concerning Australia, I'll only comment on the St Shenouda Monastery just outside Sydney. This monastery was established some 20 odd years ago (around 1995) by Fr Tadros Malaty, before the Diocese of Syd…
  • Hi Drew,I presume that includes Holy Week... can you confirm?Cheers,Drew
  • Would anyone happen to have a recording of the Prostration Service (if available)? Cheers and God bless, Andrew
  • Hi, Isn't there a French or French-Coptic Orthodox eparchy under the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate? http://www.france-copte.net/ Not sure if there are any parishes close to Zoxasi but this link is worth a try: http://www.france-copte.net/news/annu…
  • I hope what's next for us is that our future Patriarch teaches us to regard all church-related services with the utmost respect. I hate to say this but the Cathedral looked like a circus during and after HH's funeral service. Last year's Covenant T…
  • Hi guys, Not sure if this is recommended by the admins but I just tried this on IE8. 1. When re-directed to the main community page after attempting to login from the Hymns section, click back on your browser. 2. Refresh the page; the login box at…
  • Dear Father, Thank you for your post! For me, it's hard to know where to begin when looking for books about certain topics from Eastern Orthodox points of view. Your listing of these references serves as a good stepping stone for me. Selfishly, I…
  • Yes, lol, thank you ilovesaintmark. Apologies to everyone for my implicitness.
  • As minigir posted: [quote author=minagir link=topic=10061.msg122901#msg122901 date=1290992335] A feast of the Lord breaks the rite (tunes) of a fast (the advent) but not break the fast itself. [/quote] Logically, since this is not a Lordly feast, …
  • Hi, I'm not aware of any recordings for this feast. However, I just wanted to mention that the feast day is actually February 15th (Amshir 8 ). December 12th (Kiahk 3) is the celebration of the entrance of the Virgin to the Temple. God bless, And…

  • [quote author=DimyanCoptic link=topic=7981.msg103214#msg103214 date=1242606931] Did you know that the rapper from the band LINKIN PARK is a COPT ? I'm serious! his name is Mike Shenouda, and he has the famous tattoo of the cross on his wrist.. [/…
  • Hi Trinity+, It seems you've got some misconceptions of who God is and who the devil is. [quote author=Trinity+ link=topic=7736.msg101068#msg101068 date=1237260528] we have free will to choose between Christ, the bible,..etc and temptations that t…
  • Hi minagir, I hate for this to sound like i'm "ganging up" on you but how on earth did you get we all have been saying/praying the wrong liturgy for the last couple of hundred years. you are not only undermine what people been praying, you are unde…
  • Hi Unworthy1, The only live recording that I know of where the verses are Annual is when he and the chorus went to Germany during the Fast of the Apostles (no idea when that was). Maybe the more learned members might be able to provide a better one…
  • Hi Ophadece, I hope this is what you're looking for... http://www.goarch.org/multimedia/audio/nativityofchrist/apolytikion-gr Cheers, Andrew
  • I'm also from Australia. Cheers! Andrew
  • Yeh it is excellent. I just wish it had an English translation of the Orthodox Study Bible there... It'd make life a whole lot easier! Cheers, Andrew
  • Hey Christrules, You pretty much got the verse right. It's found in 1 Peter 4:8: And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” St. Peter quotes Proverbs 10:12: Hatred stirs up strife, But love co…
  • Thanks a lot for the info, ilovesaintmark. God bless. minagir - Very interesting. However, I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing to be completely covered by the crosses as we are now. Great stuff fellas. Cheers, Andrew
  • Hi ilovesaintmark, Sorry to hijack the thread but do you mind giving us further details as to the symbolism behind the stole and the other vestments if possible? [quote author=ilovesaintmark]Afterall, it has symbolism including:  the wings of an a…
  • Hi Gregory, [quote]Quote This is not the case here. They asked for your opinion; your advice, and frankly if they asked a professor of physics to explain gravity, he won't pretend that it doesn't exist. Yes of course he wont' deny it, but at the sam…
  • Thankyou kerestina! 2 Samuel 13 doesn't actually use the word "cousin"; it says 2 Samuel 13:3 said:But Amnon had a friend whose name was Jonadab the son of Shimeah, David’s brother. Jonadab is only mentioned in this chapter in 2 Samuel and at no p…
  • Hi guys, This is my first post! I'd just like to know exactly where in this chapter it says that Absalom was behind his own sister, Tamar, being raped by their half-brother, Amnon? I've read through it and cannot find any reference to this... All…
