His Holiness Pope Shenouda III Has Reposed
« on: March 17, 2012, 01:08:31 PM »
H.H. Pope Shenouda III, Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church and successor of the Apostle Saint Mark, has reposed earlier today in Cairo. May his memory be eternal and his prayers be with us all.

Merely FYI, since no one has run afoul of any rules yet, another thread on this subject exists on the Christian News board, so if anyone has any non-prayer information to offer on Pope Shenouda's life and death, it can be posted and read there.

May Moriyo Aloho bless the soul of one of the greatest Orthodox shepherds of our generation. My prayers are with the entire Coptic Orthodox Community during this strenuous time.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

May the memory of the Lord's servant, the High Priest Shenouda, be eternal and may our Coptic brethren be comforted in the prayerful expectation that their beloved Abba assists now at the Holiest of all Holy Tables.

Memory Eternal our beloved Father! Pray for us, so on that day we may be found worthy to be called your children!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
