Pope Shenouda III, Patriarch of the Holy See of St. Mark of Alexandria, and head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, celebrated the 40th anniversary of his enthronement last Sunday.  The special services were attended by the Patriarchs of the Ethiopian and Syriac Orthodox Churches, and the Catholicoses of the Malabar and both Sees of the Armenian Orthodox Church.  The only Oriental Orthodox church that was not represented was the Church of Eritrea whose current Patriarch is not recognized as canonical by the other Oriental churches (his predicessor having been deposed and imprisoned by the Eritrean government).  God grant His Holiness many more years.

Long life to His Holiness!

'Monarchy can easily be ‘debunked;' but watch the faces, mark the accents of the debunkers. These are the men whose tap-root in Eden has been cut: whom no rumour of the polyphony, the dance, can reach - men to whom pebbles laid in a row are more beautiful than an arch. Yet even if they desire equality, they cannot reach it. Where men are forbidden to honour a king they honour millionaires, athletes or film-stars instead: even famous prostitutes or gangsters. For spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served; deny it food and it will gobble poison.' C.S. Lewis God save Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, etc.! Vive le Très haut, très puissant et très excellent Prince, Louis XX, Par la grâce de Dieu, Roi de France et de Navarre, Roi Très-chrétien!

Happy Anniversary sounds weak - but I hope it carries the proper thought anyway....
