Rome Reports ^ | 5/10/13

(Romereports.com) The historic visit by Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II to the Vatican was cordial and full of good will signs aimed at bettering ties between Coptic Christians and Catholics.

Tawadros proposed that on May 10 be a “celebration of brotherly love” between the two churches.

The visit by Tawadros II was his first outside Egypt since his election as Pope of the Coptic Orthodox Christian Church in November 2012. During his speech he also invited Pope Francis to Egypt.

TAWADROS II

“May this visit of love and brotherhood be the first of a long series between our two great Churches.”

POPE FRANCIS

“Today’s visit strengthens the bonds of friendship and brotherhood that already exist between the See of Peter and the See of Mark, heir to an inestimable heritage of martyrs, theologians, holy monks and faithful disciples of Christ, who have borne witness to the Gospel from generation to generation, often in situations of great adversity.”

Our poor Coptic brethren are suffering martyrdom and the world powers are silent.

I take silence for assent.
