21 Christians were martyred. 80 or so were wounded.
There is a lot of anger and distress in many corners of the globe in the wake of this calamity. And I too, though so far distant, have found myself troubled and grieved. My friends, my friends, my Coptic brothers and sisters, I mourn for you.
And yet. And yet.
Here is the answer I needed to hear. The holy "Peace!" spoken to this storm.
In the following video we meet Bishop Mousa (Moses):
- From 0:00 to 7:49, we walk with him as he visits some of the many injured men, women, and children. He prays with them, blesses them, and makes them faces (not numbers), people, icons.
- From 7:50 to 11:04, he addresses the viewer and speaks words of peace and comfort. God bless him and grant him many years.
