I am interested in Syriac Orthodoxy and am researching a lot about
the theological differences between the Churches.
I would need know whether objects used in the Qurbono (ex. altar,
chalice etc.) become holy/sacred only if consecrated by an ordained
priest. I think the answer is "yes", but I would like to ask you...
I wish a Merry Christmas to the communities that follow the Julian
calendar! Brikh mawlodeh dMoran!
- Dear Eugene and Gabriel,
I thank you with all my heart! May God reward and bless you.
Unluckily I cannot read the very interesting documents of www.suryoyo-
online.org library because I do not know German :-(
I would like to ask whether any form of the Greek Orthodox Jesus
prayer ("Kyrie Iisou Christe, hyie Theou, eleison me ton amartolon",
i.e. "Lord Jesus Christ, son of God, forgive me a sinner") exists in
the Syriac tradition. It is recited counting how many times it is
said on a prayer rope.
And how is the Syriac Christian mesbaha used?
Thank you very much!

Hymn of St. Athanasius. It goes:
"Our Lord Jesus Christ, close not the door of your mercies on our
faces m'lord, we confess that we are sinners. Have mercy on us."
Sometimes I will chant this alone to myself in a similar fashion to
the Jesus Prayer. The Syriac version has a wonderful pacing.
