The Commemoration of the Saints in Coptic by Fr. Barsoum Shaker

From 28:56 up until around 34:17.

The text of the Commemoration:

As this, O Lord, is the command of Your only-begotten Son, that we share in the commemoration of Your saints, graciously accord, O Lord, to remember all the saints who have pleased You since the beginning.

Our holy fathers the patriarchs, the prophets, the apostles, the preachers, the evangelists, the martyrs, the confessors, and all the spirits of the righteous perfected in the faith.

Most of all, the pure, full-of- glory, ever-virgin, holy Theotokos, Saint Mary, who truly gave birth to God the Logos.

And Saint John the forerunner, Baptist, and martyr; Saint Stephen the archdeacon and protomartyr; the beholder-of-God Saint Mark the evangelist, the apostle and martyr; the patriarch Saint Severus; our teacher Dioscorus; Saint Athanasius the Apostolic; Saint Peter, the Holy martyr and high priest; Saint John Chrysostom; Saint Theodosius; Saint Theophilus; Saint Demetrius; Saint Cyril; Saint Basil; Saint Gregory the Theologian; Gregory the wonder worker; Saint Gregory the Armenian; the three hundred and eighteen assembled at Nicea; the one hundred and fifty at Constantinople; and the two hundred at Ephesus; our righteous father, the great Abba Anthony; the righteous Abba Paul; the three saints Abba Macarii and all their children, the cross-bearers; our father Abba John the hegumen; our righteous father Abba Pishoy, the perfect man, the beloved of our good Savior.

Our father Abba Paul of Tammoh and Ezekiel his disciple; my masters, the Roman fathers Saints Maximus and Dometius; the Forty-nine Martyrs; elders of Shiheet; the strong saint Abba Moses;John Kame the priest; our father Abba Daniel the hegumen; our father Abba Isidore the priest; our father Abba Pachom of the Koinonia, and Theodore his disciple; our father Abba Shenoute the archimandrite, and Abba Wesa his disciple.And Abba Abraam the Bishop of Fayom and Giza.

And all the choir of Your saints, through whose prayers and supplications have mercy on us all and save us, for the sake of Your holy name, which is called upon us.
Here is another example of religious persecution of Christians:

Published: 16:32 EST, 2 October 2015 | Updated: 18:04 EST, 2 October 2015

An Asian family who converted to Christianity claim they are being driven out of their home for the second time by Muslim persecutors.

Nissar Hussain, his wife Kubra and their six children said they have suffered an appalling ordeal at the hands of neighbours who regard them as blasphemers.

They claim they are effectively prisoners in their own home after being attacked in the street, having their car windscreens repeatedly smashed and eggs thrown at their windows.

Mr Hussain, 49, has even given up his career as a nurse due to the effect on his health.

Police have been called numerous times to deal with the trouble but are said to be reluctant to treat the problem as a religious hate crime.

Exactly. The MP can say this and no one will raise an eyebrow.
A tangent about Miaphysites was split off and put in the private forum.,

If anyone wants access to the private forum, they need to pm Fr. George.
Non-Religious Topics / Coneheads are for real. I just saw a picture of one.

I think the biggest opposition from anyone in my family was from my father. I don't think he thinks I'm going to hell because of it, but he was still a bit perplexed and hurt when I told him that I was leaving the Roman Catholic Church for the Orthodox Church.

The biggest opposition I faced was from my friends who, at the time, were like a second family in faith. Most have either graduated (making my conversion a non-issue because I rarely see them) or accepted it by now, but I did loose one close friendship because of it.
