My First Holy Qurbono Words for Children
From the Orthodox Divine Liturgy of the Aramaic Syriac Tradition
This book is about the liturgy of the Malankara and Syriac Orthodox Churches of India and the Middle East, for children ages 4 – 8 and even older. It is quite natural for children to be curious about and fascinated by the sights, sounds and fragrances they encounter in the Holy Temple during the Holy Qurbono. It is intended to help children learn some of the more common words and names of items that are used in the Liturgy, in English, in Malayalam (the language of Syrian Christians in India), and in Aramaic Syriac (the language of Jesus). My First Holy Qurbono Words is a little book with words that even a young child can quickly learn, and one that may be brought to church every Sunday to help children experience and understand the Liturgy while it is being celebrated.
