Cusae, a titular see of Egypt. The Coptic name of this town was Kosko; in Greek it becomes Kousos, Akouasa, Akoussa, Kousis, Kousai, Khousai; in Latin we find Cussa, Cusw, Chusae, etc. It is now the fellahtown, El-Kousiyet (Alquoussiah, Al-Kussij e, El-Kusiye, Qossieh), on the western bank of the Nile, inland between the railway stations Derfit esh-Sherif and Montfalfit. Near it stands Deir-el-Moharag, the largest, richest, and most peopled of the seven great Coptic monasteries; the Holy Family is said to have sojourned there and it is the center of an important pilgrimage. The city figures in the "Synecdemus" of Hierocles (730, 9), Georgius Cyprius (764), and Parthey's "Notitia Prima" (about 840). It was a saffragan of Antinoe in Thebais Prima. Lequien (II, 597) mentions two bishops, Achilles, a Meletian, in 325, and Thomas, present at Constantinople in 553. Cusse is to be distinguished from Kysis in the southern part of the Great Oasis, now Dfish el-Kal'a.

"Since the sanctification of man is in the power of God who sanctifies, it is not in the competency of man to choose the things by which he is to be sanctified, but this must be determined by Divine institution."
-- St. Thomas Aquinas, from his Summa Theologica, as excerpted in the article Sacraments
