This component started life in the days of "phpNuke" some time in the year 2003.
It started with a request to help set up a database and generation of pages for the Synaxarium.
After becoming aware of the CMS called "Mambo", I migrated what I had thus far for use with that CMS.
At that time I also was asked to try to put together a component for display of the Holy Bible.
During that time there was a split in the "Mambo" group and I followed them to "Joomla" on 20 August 2005.
Further development occurred and the component is now available in both English and Arabic.
The whole exercise would not have been possible without the help and encouragement of some very devoted webmasters of Coptic Orthodox Church websites.
Their knowledge of what is required and where to obtain the information made it possible to put all this together.
They guided me to get all of the translations from English into Arabic.
However, there will be instances that what is displayed is not correct.
I therefor ask all the users of this component not to hesitate and contact me with their concerns.
