st mark's cathedral

It’s so easy to forget how blessed I am to be living in a country where religious freedom is celebrated (of course, that can seriously debated and I recognize that) but when compared to Egypt, a country where Coptic Christians have survived and have kept their faith alive and flourishing despite the oppression and persecution they face on the daily, living in America is a breeze

In the face of the recent attack on St. Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, I just want to remind people to keep the Copts in Egypt as well as all the religious minorities around the whole world in their thoughts and prayers. Now more than ever it is important to support each other and build each other up regardless of our faiths, to love each other and be there for one another in the hopes of developing our world as well as our spiritual lives.

Cairo Cathedral explosion: At least 22 dead as ambulances rush to scene of blast to treat over 25 injured Christian worshippers.

The blast at St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral is being blamed on an identified woman who planted an IED with 6kg of explosives before remotely detonating it, say local media.

An explosion at a cathedral in Cairo has killed at least 22 people - with at least 35 mostly Christian worshippers and other bystanders reportedly injured.

The blast happened near the St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in the Abbassia district - with some suggestions it happened at a 100yr-old church within the complex called al-Botrosiya. |

“I am without my phone. I listen to the sound of the water disturbing pebbles. I think of the process of stone being slowly eroded. Time is mean.” —Naomi Morris is pulled to the same places again and again, knowing that they’ll never be as familiar as she hopes.
