Coptic Voters Vote Today

The 2,406 selected Coptic voters eligible to contribute to the choice of a new Coptic vote — including representatives of Copts abroad and the Ethiopian Orthodox Church — are voting today to choose three finalists from the five candidates previously selected from a field of 17. As noted in my previous post, the new Pope will be chosen from the final three names by a blindfolded boy by lot on November 4.
