These five men have traveled together doing various liturgies in several churches in Egypt, and taking turns giving sermons to the congregants. They have been quite humble, showing that this is not a competition, but that each of them would be happy that the Lord may choose anyone of them for the Papacy, giving one another blessings and praise in their history of service and worthiness of the Papal seat.
Elections for the 5 to be voted down to the top 3 will take place on October 29 (fasting for this ended day before yesterday), which either by the end of that day or the following day, we'll know the top 3. A Church-wide fast is asked to be observed October 31-November 2 for the casting of lots of those 3 names, which will take place November 4th during the liturgy there. Enthronement of that name picked out during that liturgy will take place November 18th.
May our Lord Jesus Christ aid in choosing the right and just shepherd for the Coptic Church in the love of God the Father through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
