the copts speak

Here's an article from the NY Times about the slaughter of pigs in Egypt as an overreaction to the swine flu:

Cleaning Cairo, but Taking a Livelihood.

I got to sit in the office of the man they call Rev. Samaan Ibrahim. The Copts call him Abuna Samaan (Father Simon). I watched him heal the sick and cast out deamons. He is the holiest man I have ever been in the presence of. When he spoke, it seemed to me that Jesus himself was speaking.
