On the sixth day of Hatour, the Lord met with the Virgin and the disciples in that deserted house in which he dwelt as a child in the wilderness of Mount Qusqam, for the first time to break bread and sprinkle water in the house with his pure hands.
This strange event is told by Coptic ecclesiastical books that recorded it in the style of the era in which it was copied, where the word mass is mentioned instead of breaking bread and the word dedication instead of sprinkling water, citing Pope Theophilus and Pope Kyrillos the pillar of religion in that.
But this event was not recorded in the New Testament, like other important events that if one were recorded, the whole world would not be able to accommodate the written books, according to the words of John the Evangelist (John 21:25). Therefore, the monastery decided, guided and using the will and grace of the Lord, to engage in a difficult task. It is very important, namely, the search for the original roots of this great event and the time of its occurrence, and consequently for the aforementioned time, and studies are continuing – in this regard – until now, supported by the help and grace of the Lord of glory.
But before we conclude the topic, we must present to the beloved reader, what the ecclesiastical books say about this great event… All the ancient synagogues and burials adopted in the Coptic Church as a long tradition in the Coptic Church have been examined. Old – preserved in the manuscripts of monasteries, ancient churches, the Patriarchate, and the Coptic Museum, the oldest of which dates back to the early fourteenth century (according to what has been reached now). Also, there were books about feasts and ecclesiastical occasions dating back to the 15th century that mention this occasion [which is 6 Hatoor] as one of the important ecclesiastical feasts in the church.
It was found that there is a comprehensive consensus on mentioning this great event in the church books, and it testified that the Lord Christ, to whom be glory, attended with his mother and his disciples, and consecrated this holy house on the sixth day of the month of Hatour, and thus the Qusqam Church is the only one in Egypt but in the whole world Which is unique in this great event, and this will be the first inauguration of its kind to take place in the New Testament with the right hand of the Lord and His divine ordinance that does not dissolve for ever and ever and for ever and ever.
