Rites and Rituals of the Coptic Orthodox Church

Dictionary of Coptic Orthodox Church Terms and Terminology

Litanies

 

* The Greek word λιτανεία "litania" means "supplication."

* The litanies are "prayers" that are recited or sung by the priest, deacons and people, during the liturgies, such as:

1- Clergymen and Fathers' litany.

2- Deceased litany.

3- Location litany.

4- Water, plants or fruits litany.

5- Sick litany.

6- Oblation litany.

7- Travelers litany.

* The church asks her Christ on behalf of everyone, (and every thing,) in need to Him, and for all the world's needs.

* As an example, when the deacon asks the people to pray for the sick persons, every person has to remember the names of the sick and pray for them secretly.
