Rites and Rituals of the Coptic Orthodox Church
Dictionary of Coptic Orthodox Church Terms and Terminology
* A lamp that is lit with oil, it is hanged in front of the icons, as a reference that Christ is the light Who illuminates the inside of His saints.
* This lamp is not put in front of Christ's icon for He is the world's Light.
* There is a lamp in the niche that is permanently lit, called "Perpetual." It reminds us of the eastern star that led the Wisemen to where the Lord Jesus Christ was born.
