"The head of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, expressed his wishes for a speedy recovery for the head of Egypt's Coptic [Orthodox] Church, Pope Shenouda III, who is currently [in] the US for treatment..."

I hadn't realized that Pope Shenouda was so advanced in years (he's 88). God help him!

I don't know what signs such action gives Undecided

He seems to be spending a lot of time of late receiving medical treatment in the USA :-(. Given his age the Coptic Orthodox Church may soon have to elect a new pope, which would be awful given the uncertainty right now about what's in Egypt's future :-/.

It's my understanding that Pope Shenouda has been battling health issues on and off for a few years now, and he is at quite an advanced aged (as was mentioned, he's 88).

We should all pray for His Holiness, a true saint of our times.

I've read some of his books.  Pope Shenouda is a prolific writer, a wise man and a man of deep prayer.  He says some profound things in his writings.
