COLLEYVILLE, TX. March 11, 2021 -- A committee of monks from St. Mary and St. Moses Abbey met for a period of months to review the English translation of the Saturday Theotokia. After detailed examination, it was determined that the current translation is not an accurate translation of the original Coptic in many respects. A number of verses have an incorrect or inaccurate meaning. For this reason, many corrections have been made and incorporated into the recently released version of Coptic Reader (version 2.89).
