The Coptic congregation are praying for Anba Moussa, Bishop of Youth, asking the Lord to heal him and give him good health. They pray for their beloved Bishop to return home safely.
Pope Tawadros is keen to be regularly updated on the condition of Anba Moussa.
The 86-year-old Bishop of Youth is now in hospital in Germany for treatment after he was hospitalised in Cairo last week on account of abnormally high levels of urea and creatinine that had suddenly risen upon a change in the Bishop’s medication.
Born Emile Aziz on 30 November 1938, the young man who was to later become Anba Moussa graduated from the Faculty of Medicine in 1966 and subsequently served as a consecrated deacon, focusing on youth ministry in Beni Sweif under the auspices of the late Metropolitan Athanasius. In 1975, he took monastic vows as Father Angaelos El-Baramousy. In 1978, Pope Shenouda III ordained him Chori Episcopos and on 25 May 1980 he became the first Bishop for Youth. He is among the most widely loved Coptic clergy.
