"D" may sound like English "j" in many Brazilian Portuguese dialects including that of Rio, although only in some contexts not including this one. Adding "h" is presumably a low-literate invention to attempt conveining that sound outside normal contexts.

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Amazing! True display of catholicity. What is it all about? The Arabic title may say "ya Allah" ("oh, God") and the Coptic ends in "Theo", which could be a Greek loan for "God" (although Coptic uses "Noute"), so I'm guessing this might be a prayer?

The first word in Arabic is anything but "ya", my mistake. BTW, I was PM'd that it's Psalm 1.

Yeah, as it begins with "tuba ar-ragul" that's "blessed is the man". And the title says "bi-sm Allah", that's in the name of God"


Edit: indeed, it's a great example of catholicity.

Yup, it's the first Psalm...what year was this?  And what's the last language on the right?  A different form of Aramaic?

Looks more like Black Nationalist Rasta Phyletism to me!
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

Oops. I had responded Armenian. Then looked closer and saw what you're looking at. Figured out how to modify but not delete this posting. Sorry about wasted post.

Nicholas83, where did you get it? I'd like to know if it could be open source to be uploaded to Wikimedia. It would make an amazing head illustration for general articles on Oriental Orthodoxy.

lol...no worries  :)

My thought. Give Fr. Peter some time and it will be missing English. :P
