Death of Abba Marcos of France

I too met Abba Marcos in Egypt, on my first visit there. I remember him as a warm and gentle man; I am sure a man of deep prayer and a true man of God. He talked to me at some length and impressed on me the conviction that the Christian faith was about love or it was nothing. I will never forget it. He will be sadly missed by his people, by the wider Coptic Orthodox community and by all who had the privilege to meet him.

Memory eternal!

Subdeacon Michael.
