Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria


The Church and Theology School in Alexandria was established by the Apostle Mark in 60AD. Most of the early converts were common Egyptians who spoke Coptic. Although Christians became the majority before the Arab invasion in 636, by the 12th century they were the minority. The concept of monasteries in Christianity was started by the Coptics in the deserts of Egypt. Currently, the Coptics are victims of terror, let us pray for their safety.

MM: praying for Christians? Should we not also pray for Jews and Muslims? How about just praying for peace?

Praying for world peace. That's been done for centuries....even longer. I pray that good defeats evil, even if war is needed.
