Doctors can get sick
Copts sadly received the news about the killing of Bishop Epiphanius, head of St. Makar monastery. It was even harder for them to know that he was killed in front of his cell in his monastery. People were terrified that investigations may lead that a monk is the murderer.

Houses of worship are indeed holy places that should be full of love and peace, but the fact is that they are like hospitals that are full of patinas and even the doctors can get sick. 

Coptic monasteries are full of piety and ascetics. Having one monk who commits adultery or even kill won’t defile the house of the lord, but rather will make people grow up and stop thinking all clergy are saints and angels. Again: Doctors can get sick.
