Please pray for my country Ethiopia and its people. We lost our Patriarch and Prime Minister within the same week. This may precipitate a lot of instability within the country.
Lord have mercy!

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

This may precipitate a lot of instability within the country.
Lord have mercy!

Lets pray the opposite proves true.  As Bob Marley sang, "When one door is closed, many more are opened.."

Ethiopia has faced worse circumstances, both in regards to princes and popes or the lack there of either, and by God's Grace she will survive this one too.. However, it is indeed unconscionable tragedy to have both in a single week.  Lord have His Mercy.

Lets focus on one tragedy at a time.  For the present moment, lets mourn our loss of His Holiness as the funeral approaches.. Sad

stay blessed,

Lord have mercy.

I read that the vice prime minister has studied some biology-related in Finland. police

He did MBA in UK then M.Sc in Economics in Netherlands. I am not sure about biology related stuff..although he did two years of medical school in ET before he quit and joined the party. Was a smart man!

Memory eternal to our PM
