I would like to visit a Coptic Orthodox Liturgy here in New Mexico. How are relations between Catholics and Coptic Orthodox?Honestly, and I mean no offence when I say this to you, but I think a lot of Orthodox Copts dislike Coptic Catholicism because most Coptic Catholics are converts from Orthodoxy. We just have the mindset of "Well, we are already Christian, why try proselytizing us?" We like you guys better than Egyptian Protestants, though.
The Coptic Catholic has ceased proselytizing the Orthodox a long time ago and relations are generally warm between our Churches. They've also produced a number of important scholars of Coptic culture, history, etc. But, of course there is no intercommunion except for emergencies.
Also, we shouldn't paint all Protestants in Egypt with the same brush. Very many of them are very respectful to our Church, especially to HH Pope Shenouda (also Abouna Makary Younan & others), and even read his books & listen to his sermons. Its from the more recently American influenced ones that you'll see the more polemical attitude and the shady proselytizing techniques.
The recent events since Jan25 have brought all Egyptians of good will closer together; Christian & Muslim, Orthodox & Non-Orthodox.
Having said all that, I would love for all to return to the Orthodox faith. But we achieve that but loving them and showing Christ in us and not by any other way.
