Because of its power and holiness, the Coptic Orthodox Church celebrates two separate Feasts of the Cross in its liturgical year. The first, on Thout 17 (September 27 or 28), commemorates the discovery of the Holy Cross by the Empress Helen, mother of the first Christian Roman emperor, Constantine. Through her diligent search and efforts, the Holy Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ was recovered from under the rubble at Golgotha. The second Feast, on Paramhotep 10 (March 19), commemorates the manifestation of the Holy Cross in the seventh century during the reign of the Roman emperor Heraclius. After he had defeated the Persian army, one of the Persian princes stole the Holy Cross while en route to Persia. When Heraclius heard of this, he gathered the Roman army and marched to Persia where he recovered the Holy Cross and returned it to Constantinople in 629 A.D. (more…)
I solved this by using much the same technique as described in the answer currently listed as most helpful. Here are the basic steps:
1) Turn off the radio on the cellphone to prevent any syncing.
2) If necessary stop syncing from Apple’s address book. Archive contacts and then delete them all.
3) Clean up contacts in Google using find duplicates.
4) Delete all contacts in Blackberry. What I learned is that this can be done easily on the Blackberry, without using the Desktop software. To do this, in the Blackberry’s contacts, press the menu button (button immediately to the left of the track ball), select options, type “rset” (note: there’s no text box to type rset into and the text will not appear on your screen), a dialog box will then appear asking if you want to delete all contacts, say yes.
5) Turn the Blackberry’s radio back on.
The Coptic New Year is the very first calendar ever known by man on planet earth! It goes back 4241 BC. The word “Nayrouz” is of Coptic origin. The stem is niiaro-oo meaning: “the rivers.” The suffex “ouz” is Greek, thus, the word “Niiaroouz.” Mid September is usually where the waters of the Nile river rises, so the prayers are lifted to God for the rising of the waters of the rivers for irrigation and ask for His blessings at the beginning (crown) of the Coptic Calendar year.
