Pope Shenouda III at Rest at St. Mark’s
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
The body of Pope Shenouda III, the spiritual leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church, sits dressed in formal robes on a wooden throne at Saint Mark’s Coptic Cathedral in Cairo’s al-Abbassiya district. Mourners are paying their respects to the man who reigned over the Middle East’s largest Christian minority group. He was 88.
After a long illness, he died on Saturday and will be buried today at St. Bishoy Monastery in Wadi Natrun in the Nile Delta where he spent his time in exile after a dispute with late president Anwar Sadat.
