In the hope of resurrection, we bid farewell to a virtuous priest and an active servant, beloved in his life, faithful in his church’s service, had good relations with everyone, and well-known to all those who dealt with him in his service area from all the people, Muslims and Copts, young and old, as well as a successful life with all the other priests who helped them in church service.
With great pain, we bid farewell to him according to this tragic accident, raising our eyes to heaven towards our God, asking him for consolation for his virtuous wife and his blessed family, as well as for his church and all his loved ones and spiritual children.
We bid him farewell in these holy days of Fasting, so that he may celebrate the glorious resurrection with Christ Jesus, and that he may be a prayer and intercessor for us in heaven.”
