Prayers can move mountains. Our God is alive. He heard the cries of Israel during their bondage in Egypt. He hears our prayers. H.H.Pope Shenouda broke in tears and his tears will not go in vain. Maybe God"s will that the church offers new martyrs. "thy will be done". He allowed Muslims to spread evil for 1400 years. When He died on the cross, He did it for the whole world. I pray that these Muslims see the love of God.
I heard about a conference will be held in Washington on Nov. 16. Such meeting should include all Christians. An invitation should be sent to leaders, thinkers, writers, doctors, lawyers etc. I wish to attend if I receive one. I have served my church for 60 years. I am the Founder of the Coptic Aid Foundation. God bless your eforts

Shame on all the newspapers that started all that by spreading lies, shame on the governments and or individuals who funds such "so called" newspapers, bigger shame on the Egyptian government for failing to respond properlyto the problem. Send the army to the streets, Police can't contain such great number of missled rioters.
The funny thing that some of these newspapers which encourage hate and violence are published and distributed here in USA for FREE, but i promise you ... we will do something about it very soon ...

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus our Lord,
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit and may you all endure through this trial of your faith. Stand strong in the power of His Strength and Might and never give one inch to the powers of darkness. Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father. Remember all who have gone before and love your enemies as Christ loved us, and gave Himself for us. No greater love is known then this: Jesus died for the ungodly, and through His death burial and resurrection, He reconciled us to God. The Muslim is without hope and God in this world. They need to see your love and strength in Jesus. I'll be praying for you all.
