That looks way too organized to be a proper Orthodox procession. Are you sure those aren't Maronites in disguise?

Coptic choir of deacons (subdeacons or lower though probably) on a "Nahda" procession (procession in honor of the Theotokos) in the Metropolos of Assiut in Dronka suburb.

They're definitely Orthodox, though at least one of the Facebook comments noted (with surprise and pleasure) the coordination of the event(s).  Smiley

He was in exile.  He's back home now.  Tongue

Seriously, though, I don't know if it's because I tend to notice him more (for obvious reasons) or because he gets or has his own good media coverage or what, but His Holiness seems to be a very visible (and down to earth) presence and advocate for the suffering Christians of the Middle East, whatever Church they may belong to.  I don't doubt the hard work of the other patriarchs in that region, but this one seems to be particularly zealous and untiring.  He makes us all proud.

Our parish had the blessing of His Holiness praying a liturgy with us when he was still the Metropolitan in NJ.  If it wasn't for the hat, you couldn't tell if he was a Coptic bishop or a Syrian bishop.  He can chant a Coptic liturgy very well.

Well, we in the land of exile miss him....but understand.
