  1. From the Facebook entry of Abbot Tryphon (Abbot of All-Merciful Savior Orthodox Christian Monastery) about Pope Shinouda: "It was with great sadness that I heard the news of the death of His Holiness Pope Shenouda, head of the Coptic Orthodox Church. I had the pleasure of sitting next to him, many years ago, during a banquet given in his honor, in Seattle. I knew I was sitting next to a saint. May his memory be eternal."

  2. He has been a witness for true ecumenism. May the angels bring him to paradise!

  3. You should say Kyrie Eleison not Memory Eternal. The Excommunication of the Copts in 451 was not yet lifted unlike the 1054 :P
