Bishop Tawadros’s name is announced as the new pope of Egypt’s 18 million-strong, and persecuted Coptic Christians on November 4, 2012 in Cairo, Egypt.
Bishop Tawadros, 59, an aide to the acting pope, was selected to become Pope Tawadros II, replacing the charismatic Pope Shenouda III who died earlier this year after 40 years at the helm of the church.
Tawadros II is The 118th Coptic Pope
May God guide him to lead his flock amid tough days of suffering and persecution from Islamic extremists.
