The Holy Great Fast - February 16 - April 11, 2015

The Holy Great Fast is considered a time of spiritual renewal. The 55 days of the Holy Great Fast are the most Holy days of fasting of the Coptic Church. Fifty-five days include the forty days, which were fasted by the Lord Himself, the Passion Week, and the first initial week to prepare us spiritually before this great season of renewal.

Verse of the Day

Isaiah 53:5-6

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

Quotes of Our Fathers

Reading the Scriptures is a great safeguard against sin.

-- Abba Epiphanius
