H.B. THEOPHILOS’ III LETTER OF CONDOLENCES TO THE COPTIC CHURCH IN JERUSALEM.
The Coptic Archbishop, Dr. Anba Abraham
Coptic Church Jerusalem
We were shocked to hear about the tragic death of twenty two faithful of the Coptic Church in Alexandria, victims of a terrorist action together with a hundred of injured. We strongly condemn this lethal action of violence and express Our deep condolences to the Coptic Church and to the relatives of those ones who passed away.
We pray to Our Lord Jesus Christ from His Holy Tomb to alleviate the injured and protect innocent people from such arbitrary actions in the future.
With Our fraternal wishes,
PATRIARCH OF JERUSALEM
Holy City of Jerusalem
