After a day that was very orderly where events unfolded as expected, the final results are here. The three candidates from whom the next pope will be chosen are: -HG Bishop Rafail -HG Bishop Tawadros -Father Rafail Ava-Mina The Divine Lottery will take place on Sunday. At the conclusion of a liturgy prayed by Bishop Pakhomious, a child will choose the next Pope from amongst these three candidates. CopticWorld will continue to stream live CYC, CTV and Logos for those that dont have these services in their homes and would like to follow these historic events.

Also, surely life-expectancy would be more accurate based on average life expectancy in, say, the US. That is because the Pope lives a lifestyle of a quality similar to that of the average US citizen. Basing it on previous Popes is too small a sample, and also does not take into account a steady increase in life expectancy since the Industrial Revolution.
