The Basilica Church Vigil Oct. 30, at 6:30 PM

Karim is organizing it. Here is the deal: The Basilica Church in Heliopolis / Roxy (the one right next to Al-Horria Mall) has a garden directly in front of its main entrance. The meeting place is there. We will hold a short vigil this coming Sunday the 30th of October at 6:30pm. It should last no more than an hour. The point behind this event is to display Egypt’s religious interconnection. As I previously had expressed to me (rather pointedly) there are no real differences between us. We are a hotheaded lot; quick to temper but faster to forgive. Let us grasp the opportunity of the last few days of Ramadan to make this display of affection for each other. We are fast losing many friends around the world; let us at least make sure we keep the ones we have at home. Everyone is kindly asked to bring a candle and wear a white tee-shirt. The point man on this is Tamer; his number is 010-613-1004 if you have any questions please feel free to call him. Just as important as the demonstration itself as it is the pictures of it. We intend to use those pictures as the basis of a formal letter to both Pope Shenouda as well as the Vatican in a show of solidarity and apology. We are not expecting more than a couple dozen people or so, so please get there on time as it will not last long. Thank you. Karim Elsahy
