What is the language of the Church?

The official language of the church is Syriac, a dialect of Aramaic - the language spoken by Lord Jesus Christ and His disciples. All of its liturgy originates from Syriac sources. The church, however, allows the faithful to use local languages along with Syriac. Many liturgical works have been translated into Arabic, Malayalam, English and Turkish.

(The Syriac Church has adopted Greek sources at various times – Patr. Severus for example. It even adopted material from John of Damascus. All Quqalya came from Greek sources)
