Om Den koptiske liturgi (Gudstjenesten)

The word "Liturgy" refers to the Christian remembrance and celebration of Jesus Christ's propitiatory sacrifice of His body and blood. Also known as the service of the Eucharist, the Liturgy is central to any Christian order of worship. "And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, 'This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.' Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.'" [Luke 22:19-20] At the present time there are three Liturgies used in the Coptic Orthodox Church:

  1. The Liturgy according to St Basil, bishop of Caesarea,
  2. The Liturgy according to St Gregory of Nazianzus, bishop of Constantinople,
  3. The Liturgy according to St Cyril I, the 24th Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church.

The Liturgy according to St. Basil is the one used most of the year; St. Gregory's Liturgy is used during the feasts and on certain occasions; only parts of St. Cyril's Liturgy are used nowadays.
