ugcc.ua - On Sunday, another terrible attack was perpetrated against the Coptic community in Egypt. The Day of Christ’s entry in Jerusalem became the day of passion for the faithful in Alexandria and Tanta. At this time of sorrow, I assure you of solidarity in prayer of our Church,” says the Head of the UGCC in a letter to the Head of Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Church, Theodore II, the Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of Apostle Mark’s capital.
“Our hearts embrace the wounded, the bereaved families, priests and laity of the Coptic Church in Egypt and abroad. Let the blood of innocently killed become the seed of faith in this week, leading us to the Resurrection. May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, “who rose from the dead, trampling down death by death, and on those in the tombs bestowing life,” illuminate with the everlasting light the victims, give peace to the Church, shelter Your Holiness, your brothers in the episcopate, the priests, consecrated persons and all the faithful and enlighten our hearts with his hope and charity,” His Beatitude Sviatoslav said. It was reported by Information Department of the UGCС.
