For the Election of the New Coptic Orthodox Patriarch
« on: November 03, 2012, 08:37:23 PM »
Perhaps I should have created this thread earlier, but anyway...

Tomorrow is the Election of the new Pope and Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church, please pray that God may grant the Church a good new shepherd.

Through the prayers of The Theotokos and St. Mark the Evangelist, Lord grant this!

The Saviour is made of elements which are distinct from one another yet He is not two Persons. God forbid! For both natures are one by the combination. -St. Gregory Nazianzen

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

the people on this forum have to stop taking themselves so seriously. None of us are some modern-day Athanasius, we all just have nothing better to do.

Severian,

I am sure that God will grant us the shepherd that is suitable to sit on the throne of St. Mark. Consider this; to move the Mokattam mountain, the church fasted for three days and their prayers were answered. On the contrary, this year, we fasted for 9 days for the selection of the new patriarch. If three days of fasting was able to move a mountain, nine days of fasting should be plenty for God to work though the hand of a small child in selecting the new Patriarch.
