On the evening of the bloody Palm Sunday 2017, when 45 Copts were killed in two Egyptian churches (Tanta and Alexandria), Father Boules George delivered a powerful message to the IS terrorists in Cairo after the event. „We thank you very much! You have given us the greatest honor of dying by the same death as Jesus.“. The priest also thanked the murderers for shortening the pilgrimage of the faithful. For they longed to be with God. Many people were also awakened by the assassination, Christian and non-christian alike because in the following services, the churches were filled. He also expressed his love for those who had conducted the killing and that as Christians, it is our duty to pray for and love those people. He spoke about many more powerful things, I encourage you to take the time to read his speech. It has been translated for us into English. https://www.copticdadandmom.com/fr-boules-george/. He powerfully spoke that day and showed God’s beautiful heart.
