Amba Tawadraus, a former pharmacist, is committed to the unification of all the churches and, in particular, the Coptic diaspora scattered around the world. He was nominated by Amba Raphael and six other bishops including Amba Souryal, Bishop of Melbourne in Australia. He is fluent English.

Axios! indeed! But he certainly has a huge task and a very dangerous one. Let's pray together for this Godly leader.
