Please everybody pray to Our Lord Jesus Christ for the protection of HH Pope Shenouda III, the Holy Synod, the CO Clergy and the Coptic Orthodox Church and its youth. Calls were being circulated on the internet for many days for massive demonstrations to come out from many large mosques very close to the CO Patriarchate after their Friday prayers tomorrow 22/10 at ~1 PM (Cairo local time), with claimed intentions to humiliate the Pope and HG Anba Bishoy and to demand the Church to deliver them the Christian women that some still wrongly insist on their conversion.
Please pray peacefully for all the Church and also pray for the angry crouds that God will calm their anger peacefully without damage to anybody.
I ask you please to refrain from any flamed reactions or replies as they are not our way, we do love our country and our brethren very much.
I would like we also thank and glorify the Lord that Mr Selim el-Awa who previously unjustly propagated and mobilized a lot of anger accusing the Church of conspiracy by claims of gathering and hiding weapons etc. that he was recently severely discredited by many of his own religious figures because in his poisonous speeches his tongue slipped as he dared criticizing their prophet's companions. Glory be to God forever.
