Hail Mary 
We ask you O the Saint full of glory 
the ever Virgin Theotokos 
the Mother of Christ 

We ask you to raise our prayers 
to your beloved son 
that He may forgive us our sins 

Hail to the Holy Virgin 
who bore for us the True Light, 
Christ our Lord 
Ask the Lord on our behalf 
to have mercy upon us and forgive us our sins. 

O Mary the Virgin Theotokos 
the holy and trusted intercessor of the human race, 
intercede for our sake 
before Christ whom you bore 
that He may grant us the forgiveness of our sins. 

Hail to you the Virgin 
the true and just Queen 
Hail to the pride of our race 
who for our salvation 
gave birth to Emmanuel 
We ask you, the trusted intercessor 
to remember us before our Lord 
Jesus Christ 
that He may forgive us our sins. 

From The Coptic Orthodox Agpeya(Book Of Hours)

Where am I?

Deodar Trees

Where am I? I wonder at times

Lost in a world where patience is scarce

Where ambition drives relationships and  hypocrisy causes no remorse

Where thirst for power is all that matters and ethics matter no more

Where  forgiveness and selflessness are looked down upon as signs of weakness

 And where humility, compassion and love are considered worthless

I hope not to lose myself here, I pray

Following the ways of this world, I hope I am never led astray
