In a formal act on June 3rd, at the Coptic cathedral Virgin of Zeitoun, Pope Tawadros awarded the St. Mark Medal to the distinguished Syriac Orthodox Chorepiskopos Emanuel Aydin. The Chorepiskopos is being honored for his work as Vice-Rector of the Pope Shenouda College.

Dear Salpy, what do you think of His Holiness' yesterday speech? The first step the Egyptian defense minister took was to bring Pope Tawadros II, Al-Azhar Grand Sheikh, and ElBaradei together. Is it a good thing? Is there some kind of optisim?

I think it is a good sign.  Let's pray that things get better for the Coptic people, and for all the people of Egypt.

How unusual that kind of inter-OO encounters are? I've had this assumption that OO churches tend to meet each other fairly rarely.
