Memory Eternal: Pope Shenouda III

Egypt's Coptic Pope Shenuda III, [sic] spiritual leader of the Middle East's largest Christian minority, died at the age of 88, state television and cathedral sources said.

The cause of death was not immediately clear, but the Christian leader has suffered health problems for years.

State television reported he was 89, but the pope was born in August 1923, which would make him 88 at the time of death.

Memory eternal. Now is certainly not a good time for the Copts to lose their spiritual leader. May they appoint a good replacement quickly.
