His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, 118th Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark issued a statement concerning the passing of Mr. Nelson Mandela, and expressed his prayers with Coptic Orthodox Christians throughout the world.

His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, 118th Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark, along with all Coptic Orthodox Christians throughout the world, join in remembering the life and legacy of Mr. Nelson Mandela.

Earlier today, His Holiness released the following statement:

“Let us never forget the legacy of a man that dared to right injustice through peace, understanding, mutual respect, and forgiveness. His example of perseverance and fortitude not only shaped a life, but an entire country, generation and even the world. Today, a great peacemaker has completed his mission. Mr Nelson ‘Madiba’ Mandela is not only the ‘Father’ of South Africa, but he is a father to all through his teachings and philosophy. We were promised in Matthew 5:9; ‘Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God.’ May Mr. Mandela rest in peace with the Prince of peace, our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ. I pray for his family and the entire nation of South Africa.”

May God repose the soul of Mr. Mandela and bring comfort to his family.
