Pope Tawadrous II

On the 18th of November, 2012, the Coptic Orthodox Church enthroned His Holines Pope Tawadros II as the 118th Pope of Alexanderia and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark. May God Bless him.

 

Condolences to His Holiness Pope Tawadros II

Fr. Youhanna Ghaly, The Deacons, The Servants, The Board of Deacons and all the congregation of Saint Philopater church - Guelph, reverently convey our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathies to His Holiness Pope Tawadros II for the departure of his blessed and pious mother, Mrs. Samia Naseem Istafanous. Her exemplary life of faith and devotion transformed a home into a church, a seminary, and a roadmap to heaven which is evinced in our blessed shepherd and patriarch, His Holiness Pope Tawadros II. Indeed, the righteous complete life on earth with honor, faith, and goodwill, and thus, await their eternal joy with the Lord. "Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You" (Psalm 73:25).

May God rest the soul of the beloved mother, Mrs. Samia Naseem Istafanous, in the Paradise of Joy.

God's children should be strong because they were created in His image and likeness (Gn 1: 26); and God is powerful.  We say about Him "Holy is the Lord God Almighty"; therefore, they should be strong like Him.
