Synaxis in honor of ...

Definition
The word "Synaxis" from the word "synago" means "gathering, assembly, reunion".
It is exactly equivalent to the Latin collecta (from colligere), and corresponds to synagogue (synagoge), the place of reunion.

Usage
Synaxis is a religious assembly in honor of one or more persons or angels. On the day after a major feast, (the second day of the feast), we assemble again to honor one or more persons or angels, who are associated with that feast.
In Christian and liturgical use the Synaxis is the assembly for any religious function, either in the abstract sense (nomen actionis) or concretely for the people assembled (cf. German Sammlung and Versammlung). The verb synago occurs frequently in the New Testament, for gathering together a religious meeting (Acts 11:26; 14:27 etc.), as also for the Jewish services and councils (e.g. John 11:47). So also in the Apostolic Fathers (Didache, ix, 4; xiv, 1; I Clem., xxxiv, 7; in general for the union of the church, Ignatius, "Magn.", x, 3). We must distinguish the liturgical (eucharistic) from the aliturgical Synaxis, which consisted only of prayers, readings, psalms, out of which our Divine Office evolved. Dionysius the Pseudo-Areopagite uses the word only for the eucharistic service ("De eccles. hier.", iii, in P.G., III), and Cardinal Bona thinks that so it may have a mystic meaning, as referring to our union with God or Communion (Rerum liturg., I, iii, 3). But it occurs frequently for any religious assembly, and in this sense was adopted in the West by St. Benedict ("Regula Ben.", 17: "Vespertina Synaxis" Vespers) and by John Cassian ("Collat.", IX, 34: "ad concludendam synaxim"; ed. Hurter, Innsbruck, 1887, p. 315) etc. In this signification the word is now archaic in Greek and Latin. It is preserved, however, in the Byzantine Calendar as the title of certain feasts on which the people assemble in some particular church for the Holy Liturgy, and therefore corresponds with the Roman statio.

Thesaurus - Arabic Influenced Religious Terminology on Malta

"We speak an arabic dialect and are catholics. Although our dialect is highly italianised we use christian arabic terminology. The question is from where have this terminology come from. Malta was under the arabs in the early middle age and there was a presence of islam. Our dialect have elements of both west and eastern arabic. I suspect that there was an imigration of melkites in malta, this is the reason why I am sending this email. Attached please find a list of our religious terminology."...
"I would like to ask you a question, how similar is our terminology to yours."...
"Thanks again and Alla dejjem izomm idejh fuqok u fuq il-Kinsja Mqaddsa."

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
