The Coptic Calendar

  • Video
  • Audio
  • Files

The main goal of the Coptic calendar is allowing God’s sovereignty to conquer every part of us in order to establish his kingdom. The kingdom of God is not composed of angels and saints, but rather, of each entity of our being. St. Macarious meditated and said that each of our physical organs and limbs has a spiritual counterpart in our inner being. Every unit that God establishes his dominion in is included in his kingdom. Our early fathers with all their wisdom found that it is our great need to completely and utterly mold Christ within us through growth in sanctification. For this reason, they articulated the Coptic Year in a sequence of interlinked events to direct us in reaching this goal. These events include seasons (mostly fasts) and occasions (mostly feasts). Revealing of our soul’s sanctification through the system of the Coptic calendar solely depends on God’s righteousness, justice and truth.
