The first words uttered by the new pope Anba Tawodros II, who was informed of his election as the Coptic Church’s 118th Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St Mark while at the desert monastery of Anba Bishoi, were: “I thank the Lord for His grace; I am undeserving.”

Anba Tawodros has been chosen pope on his birthday. 
Once he was told of the news he decided to sing a praise for Anba Bishoi in front of his relics at the monastery, and visited the shrine of the late Pope Shenouda III, also at Anba Bishoi monastery, for blessing.
