Ethiopia - Meles Zenawi holds talks with Alexandria Pope Shinoda III
Prime Minister Meles Zenawi met and held discussion with His Holiness Pope Shinoda III of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark on Saturday at his office.
The Pop during the discussion mentioned that the long-standing religious ties between Egypt and Ethiopia dates back to 16 centuries.
The Pope expressed his commitment to further scale up the historical relation of the countries.
Expressing his contentment over the visit of Pope Shinoda III, Prime Minister Meles said the Ethiopian government would play its role to deepen the relation of the two sisterly countries.
The Coptic Church of Alexandria used to send Patriarchs to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church until 1951 E.C when the first Ethiopian patriarch was appointed.
Last month the Russian Orthodox church leader in diaspora passed away, but he maintained to bridge the eighty years old animosity with the Russian orthodox mother church. This became reality with the help of President PUTIN. It is high time that the son of Tigray, Melese, play the same role to heal the Ethiopian orthodox church division.
May the Almighty God give wisdom and courage to the stake holders.

“Holiness Pope Shinoda III of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark".
Hey, there is no pope in the Orthodox Church. The head of the the Alexandria church is a Patriarch but not a pope. There is only one Pope in the world “Pope Benedict” the Pope of the whole Christian Church especially for the Catholic Church. In fact he is the representative of the true Church (Super natural institution) founded by Saint Peter who received this mission from our lord Jesus Christ. So his Holiness ” Shinoda III ” is a patriarch not a Pope.
Have a good Sunday,
It is good to hear the visit of His Holiness Pope Shinoda III of Alexandria to Ethiopia. I hope he will advise our religious leaders to solve their internal differences by discussion and to love each other to be a good model to the people of Ethiopia.
You are wrong. Meles is the son of Ethiopia not only Tigray. Do mess up.
You are wrong. Meles is the son of Ethiopia not only Tigray. Do not mess up,you messy.
I hope, His Holiness – The spiritual leader of Egypt’s 10.5m Coptic Christians had a warmer and brotherly welcome in the land of his forefathers – Ethiopia, than in London, where He on the 30 of March had been subject to a search by going through a metal detector at Heathrow Airport. This was the first time Pope Shenouda had been subject to such a search. It’s shameful and disgusting!
I think Meles has felt that his life is in danger, that he wont live beyond the year 2008.
When people cannot handle stress anymore or they think it’s time for them to go, they desperately become religious, going to churches to reduce their sins. Otherwise, since when meles the criminal butcher talks to an abune, unless the abune himself is his type, sinister?
Wel come Pope Shinoda III of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark
Ahunes aferkugn!! ende Catholicochu lekas yegnam Orthodox Papas “Pope” yebalal? gira tegaban eko!
Every Ethiopian who claims to be a follower of the Orthodox Church should ask why we were forced to have so many holidays, which was also prohibiting us from doing any meaningful productive work. Any one who have access to the web could make a research
and may find out that The Ethiopian orthodox church is the only church in the world full of many holidays. Can it be the work of Egyptian leaders through their pops holding us our hands not to use the river Nile? Hummmm who knows….
The end of Ortodox superiority in Ethiopia is coming soon. This church is responsible for the past crimes made by the kings against poor and help less Ethiopian people. The majority of Muslims, Catolics, Protestants, Juishs and the other traditional religon followers were the victims of the past rigims of the so called ” Ye cristian deset ” by oppressing the vast majority of the none Ortodox followers. Down with Aba paulos ( tegadallay paulos ).
It’s only the fake ethiopians in the diaspora trying to break up the orthodox church do to thier hatred toward the patriarch for being a tigray no more no less.
