Pope Shenouda III passed away today. Condolences to all Egyptians
I'm not a "religious" guy, and I definitely did disagree with some of his opinions, but it is a tragic loss that's coming in a critical timing..........
May he rest in peace........
A sad time not just for Christians but for many here in Egypt and around the world. Catching a glimpse of the tributes in the Cathedral last night, is it usual for a body to be laid in state like this?, I must admit it's the first time I have seen someone who has died being positioned sitting up to be viewed. I'm not condemning or meaning to be disrespectful but just curious.
hello everyone,One of my staff has asked the same question.
I wonder if he has been put in this position so that people can see him without queuing up to walk past a coffin. Maybe a speed thing get the mourners in and out asap
