  • Wonderful article- thanks for sharing! Re: fixing the date to the 1st of July, it seems that the date was chosen arbitrarily- as you said, it doesn’t even meet the symbolic 12 days! I think the arrival of the relics of St. Mark to Egypt could be a f…
  • To my knowledge there is not a standard combined Verse of Cymbals for female martyrs. Here’s my best attempt at following the conventions in other verses: Ⲛⲓⲁⲗⲟⲩⲱⲓ ⲛ̀ⲥⲁⲃⲉⲩ ⲙ̀ⲡⲁⲣⲑⲉⲛⲟⲥ / ⲛⲓⲥⲱⲧⲡ ⲛ̀ⲕⲩⲣⲓⲁ ⲙ̀ⲙⲏⲓ / ⲛⲓϣⲉⲗⲉⲧ ⲛⲧⲉ Ⲡⲭ̅ⲥ̅ / Ϯⲁⲅⲓⲁ Ⲃⲁⲣⲃⲁⲣⲁ ⲛⲉⲙ Ⲓⲟⲩ…
  • As mabsoota said, the link is broken so I can’t be sure. But there are 2 hymns I can think of that might have the words “Se megali” 1- Shere Theotoke Parthene from the Veneration service (each verse ends with “se megalinomen” which means “We exalt y…
  • As in most matters regarding ecumenical councils, Dioscorus saves the day! :))
  • @ophadece thank you very much for correcting me- Coptic’s prefixes always mess me up. I can’t believe i overlooked the part of speech of the word!! I’m aware I left the verb conjugation off of ⲙⲉϩ, but if I correctly understand it it can be ⲉϥⲙⲉϩ, …
  • Hello! Welcome to the forum.My Coptic knowledge is limited, but through comparison to Church texts we can get a primitive translation. If I get something wrong, please correct me! "Glory" can be translated pretty straightforwardly- Piwou (lit. 'the …
  • This website cites it as from the Pseudo-Gospel of Matthew. The full text of the book can be found here, including 2 prefaces attributed to Jerome that are definitely worth reading.
  • If you’re looking for the translations, they are on the website (type “Aikoti” in the search bar of the Lyrics Library- it’s the second result)
  • I might be a bit late to this discussion, but in our church "May their holy blessing.." is said only when the deacon hasn't already said it (as part of the Great Ⲡⲓⲛⲓϣϯ). That said, our priests have never said the Diptych in its "proper place"- they…
  • Translation for completeness: 1. Let us praise and glorify / and worship the Holy / and Co-Essential Trinity / Who endures forever2. The incense is Mary / and the incense is in her womb / she gave birth to the Incense / Who forgives us our sins3. Th…
  • I'll try my hand at the translation, just so it exists for those looking at this in the future. Please note I do not have any familiarity with the hymn and am just going off of Remnkemi's Coptic in the link above. I'm by no means the most experience…
  • “They [Israel] have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; They have moved me to anger by their foolish idols…for a fire is kindled in My anger, and shall burn to the lowest hell.” (Deut. 32:21-22) “For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, v…
  • @Jojo_Hanna I didn't catch your response then- could you please send me the tune for Genea Niven?
  • Tangentially related question: isn’t there still a hold on monastic ordinations in response to the death of HG Anba Epiphanius? I’mnot sure when that expires.
  • Something a bit more mobile is the app Catena! It’s a Bible annotated with patristic quotes. Just make sure to stick to the Orthodox fathers and you’ll be good :)
  • @Jojo_Hanna i believe there was a discussion a while back on the site where someone said he was ordained an archdeacon before the ordination of HH Papa Tawadros (so that he could assume the responsibilities in the rite). Im not sure if that’s accura…
  • Hi Joe, The stanza is correct. “Etrapeza” (on mobile at the moment so Coptic is inconvenient, sorry) is loaned from Greek to mean “table.” The exact word used in the Theotokia (“ti-etrapeza”, the table) is used in the Sherat (Saturday Lobsh) as well…
  • @mabsoota the tune is what Mlm. Ayad is using in the third recording on this page up until 9:02, although he doesn't finish the hymn in the long tune and switches to annual. The tune is sort of similar to the 1st part of the hymn "The 7 Tunes/Ways",…
  • I didn't expect this discussion to have a page number at the bottom of it! Thank you all for your insights. I've been reading them and wanted to give the following responses:1- @minatasgeel and @EstephanosPhilipos brought up a critical point, that w…
  • This has been in my drafts for a year, and I thought I'd finally post it. I think I can help with 2. However, there are like 1000 versions, so I'm going through the most common version, that is, up until the last stichon is no longer "Blessed is the…
  • @ItalianCoptic the Coptic Church has a.. complicated.. history with Philomena. Even Wikipedia has it wrong- the source cited for Oriental Orthodoxy recognizing her is actually an article against the recognition of her sainthood. Jojo has linked to i…
  • (Admin, please feel free to delete this comment if you feel it does not help the discussion, as this might cause some people to get upset.) @metouro, I say this with a spirit of love and humility: this approach is not how the discussion will be sett…
  • @mabsoots to me, “abouna beeter” sounds like someone I want to keep my priests away from :D On a related note, I feel like it’s worth noting that we do sometimes say an English/Arabic name instead of the original Coptic- the Pope. We rarely said “…
  • @Jojo_hanna from what I can tell, “the Ancient tune/the tune of Moses” refers to a tune that sounds a lot like the adam lobsh aka khen oushot. It’s most likely called the tune of Moses since the most popular (and maybe first) hymn with that tune is …
  • I found a recording of ouon ouhelpis in the long tune from (if I remember correctly) Mo3allem Mikhail, if you'd like me to post the SoundCloud link
  • @ItalianCoptic southern US and the Virginia vicariate are doing the adam introduction to the verses of cymbals (amouini maren-ouwsht) and Rejoice O Mary/Ounof Emmo Maria/Efra7y ya Mariam
  • I have the ones from the Southern Diocese, if you’d like.
  • My old church used electric candles to comply with the lease and fire marshal rules (we were not allowed to have “roaming candles”, aka any live flame that wasn’t mostly stationary. We had to fight for the shoria to be an exception), and my current …
  • @ophadece I meant any additional hymns for the bishop to be chanted during the fast/feast (think sha nirompi for piepnevma/ouran enshosho)
