After a decade of study and work, St. Peter Diocese is proud to announce that two major liturgical volumes, Emmanuel and Qtapta, have been completed and are now available to the faithful. Furthermore, it is now available for purchase nationwide onAmazon.com.
For a brief summary of what the Emmanuel contains, read below.
Emmanuel contains two sections:
1. The Public Prayer of the Chaldean Church (Ramsha and Sapra) for Sundays, Memorials and Ordinary Days, translated into vernacular Chaldean as well as singable English. This section also includes a complete translation of Ba’utha.
2. Kahnayta, which is a volume of all the reformed Sacramental Rites of the Chaldean Church (Mass, Baptism & Confirmation, Absolution & Confession, Nishan & Marriage, Anointing of the Sick, and Funeral), available in both vernacular Chaldean and English, as well as selected Arabic. This section also includes devotional prayers such as Eucharistic adoration, as well as various blessings.
Introducing the Emmanuel book is a landmark essay by Mar Sarhad Yawsip Jammo, which is a comprehensive exposition on every major element of the Chaldean Liturgy, from the Liturgy of the Hours, to the Liturgical Year, to the Eucharistic Liturgy and all the other sacraments.
