We ascertain that our Christian faith doesn't allow us to use violence of any kind. But we also know that strangers implanted themselves among our children and committed acts that are more suited to their morals. Coptic Christians feel that their problems are always being repeated without accountability and without the due justice of the law.
The Holy Synod invites all Coptic Christians to fast and pray for three days beginning Tuesday October 12, 2011 that God may bring his peace to our beloved country of Egypt.

There are many calls in many ways to try to find a way out of the current crisis of tribulations, but we should be aware and believe that God alone is the Savior, and there is no use of doing anything without His personal intervention. The Lord says in the Book of Isaiah: "I, even I, am the Lord, And besides Me there is no savior." (Isaiah 43:11). "Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; 'For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.' Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation." (Isaiah 12:2-3).
