Rites and Rituals of the Coptic Orthodox Church

Dictionary of Coptic Orthodox Church Terms and Terminology

Pasch | Holy Week

 

* "Pasch" means "Passover." It reminds us of the Israelites' Passover of the Red Sea when they came out of Egypt, and slaughtered the Passover lamb.

* The Holy Week is called "Pasch," for our Lord Jesus Christ died for our sake to take us up to His heavens.

* During the "Pasch" we grief for our sins that caused our Lord to suffer.

* All the Holy Week long we don't lit the lamps in front of the icons, besides we don't practice "Agbia" (Canonical Hours) prayers.
