Coptic family slaughtered in Jersey City, NJ (Windows Media)
No-one knows who did it or why. The same people as the ancient Egyptians, these members of the Church of Egypt are persecuted in their own country by the ruling Muslim Arabs, whom they let in centuries ago because they didn’t like the Greeks and didn’t want to be under their empire (the real reason for the schism between them and the Greek Church).

Whatever the Coptic Rite equivalent of Dona eis requiem or Со святыми упокой is, God grant them. Amen.
