And Best Wishes for Pope Shenouda III

Having posted that last article on the Coptic Church, perhaps I could take a moment to express my wishes for recovery and best health to Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria. The papal residence released a statement on July 6 stating he is currently in the United States due to health concerns, but they anticipated his return on July 9. However, I have read no follow-up that he has recovered and returned.

May God grant him a long, healthy, and happy life -- many blessed years.
