Egypt's Copts to pray for Pope Shenouda III

The Maspero Youth Coalition has called for Copts to pray for Pope Shenouda III in the Coptic Cathedral from 5pm to 8pm on Wednesday under the slogan "your people love you."  

Pope Shenouda's health has been deteriorating recently. He apologised for giving his weekly sermon today, due to his health problems.
 
The Pope's deteriorating health raises questions about his successor.
 
The Maspero Youth Coalition (MYC) is a Coptic youth group which campaigns for Coptic rights. It has participated in several protests which the church has advised people to avoid.
