I'm reviving this old thread to post a picture of the statue of Abune Petros, from an article about the statue being moved:

Such a remarkable man.  May he pray for us all.

Amen, amen, amen.

I hope that the moving of this statue is not politically motivated.

Let us continue to pray for Ethiopia and for our Tewahedo Church.

'Lord have mercy.'
