Without question, the Holy Pascha week is the holiest week of the entire year. The artistic beauty and spiritual depth of the rites of the Coptic Orthodox church are at its zenith during this week. Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection are the foundation upon which is built the whole fabric of Christianity. This document seeks to serve as a guide through the journey of our Lord Jesus Christ through His passion and crucifixion.
We would like to take the chance to thank everyone for their prayers, phone calls, emails, and church services which were conducted to express support in response to the martyrdom of the 21 Copts in Libya. Although saddened by the act, we pray that our Lord Jesus Christ may accept the sacrifice of those brave men who chose to die rather than to deny their faith. We also pray for those who committed this act that the Lord may enlighten their hearts to see the truth.
