Fr. Antonious Henein - Pascha Book
Holy Virgin Mary Coptic Orthodox Church in Los Angeles , California
Peace and love! ... We are pleased to announce that the Church has reprinted for the sixth time "The Holy Pascha" book that contains all the prayers and readings of the Holy Pascha Week in Coptic, Arabic and English in three columns.
The Orthodox Church is Katholic, which means, among other things, that she is universal, i.e. all-encompassing. Thus she must be capable of reaching each individual, regardless of his or her language, in order to teach them her faith and then accept them as members able to join in worship. The Church cannot fulfill this responsibility unless there are translations of all her liturgical and catechetical books.
This book, "The Holy Pascha," represents a step on this long road of translating the church books to assist the English speaking members of the Church in joining in worship.
The English translation for all Old Testament readings is taken from the Septuagint translation which the Orthodox Church authorizes and is in accordance with the Coptic translation. The new Testament readings are taken from the King James Version, which, of all available translations is the closest to the Coptic translation.
The Coptic and Arabic readings are taken from "The Book Of The Holy Pascha" which was published in 1638A.M. 1921A.D. under the order of His Holiness Pope Kyrillos V, and reprinted under the order of His Holiness Pope Shenoda III
We ask the Lord to help make this book a mean by which many will be able to join in worship during the Holy week of Pascha that they may receive the blessings of these holy days.
Glory be to God forever in His Holy Church. Amen.
