I suppose he was old...and sick.

Time waits for no man. I think that if people are thinking to accomplish something...they need to consider getting it started.

the Russian Pope fell in 2008.

who's next: Benedict or Bartholomew?

this thread is not a celebration of death, but of change and transition.


Cairo (CNN) -- Coptic Pope Shenouda III, the spiritual leader of Egypt's Coptic Christian community for nearly four decades, died Saturday, according to the head of the Egyptian General Coptic Association. He was 88.
"Shenouda III suffered renal failure ... due to the diabetes he endured for years," Sheif Doss told CNN.
The leader of the Coptic Christian community for 38 years, Shenouda was in poor health off and on for many years. He traveled to the United States to undergo medical tests last year.
