Members of the Alexandria Patriarchate's hierarchy on Saturday
elected Bishop Petros of Axum, Ethiopia, to be the temporary
replacement for Patriarch Petros of Alexandria, who was killed in a
helicopter crash in Greece on September 11. According to the Church's
regulations, a permanent successor must be elected within the next 43
days.

Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.
