Muslim Group Joins Campaign to Build Coptic Church in Cairo
A group of Muslim supporters in Egypt have joined a project to raise money to build a new Coptic Christian church just north of Cairo.
Bishop Benyamin started a fund to build a church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. He asked his parishioners to reach people near and far to donate towards the church. Islamic leaders in the area heard about the fund and asked Muslims to also donate money.
President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi stated that It’s important for the world to notice these events, which reflect true Egyptian unity, and non-discrimination between the Egyptians.
Statement of the Coptic Orthodox Church regarding the Ethiopian Martyrs in Libya
The Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Church, led by His Holiness Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria condemns the criminal act of assassinating our fellow Ethiopians in Libya and calls on the international community with all its institutions to address these terrorist operations that threaten the Arab region and the whole world. We pray to God that wisdom and peace will prevail in all parts of the world.
The Joy of the Resurrection
by H.H. Pope Shenouda III
As much as the day of the crucifixion was painful emotionally, it was a day of salvation. However, people did not see Christ opening the doors of paradise, they only saw the suffering, insults and nails. As much as the disciples were disturbed and sad on Friday, they were very joyful on Sunday. The promise of the Lord to them was fulfilled when He said, “But I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you” (John 16:22).
