COLLEYVILLE, TX. December 13, 2012 -- A Message from H.H. Pope Tawadros II regarding the upcoming elections in Egypt, the motherland.

It is the right of every citizen to participate in an election or voting process taking place now or at any time in our beloved country Egypt. I encourage all eligible Egyptians to participate in this Saturday's election on December 15, 2012. This opportunity is here for everyone to express their opinion freely and responsibly without interference from others.

We are praying unceasingly for the peace of our country, Egypt. May God grant wisdom to our leaders. May peace and security fill our beloved country, Egypt, keep her a people, a land and a country for all.
