They raised his posters and chanted statements like "Do not say the pope has died! He has just been taken to Heaven!" and words in Coptic language meaning "O God! Have mercy on him!"

Crowds of Copts tried to break into the monastery yard and some skirmishes rose up but the situation was contained by the massive numbers of army soldiers of Military Police who spread everywhere to secure the burial.
When the coffin arrived in an ambulance, the security men, as well as Copts and priests hurried to carry it to place the pope's body in the grave, amid sighs and tears of the attendees.

Cairo, Egypt | March 20, 2012

Tens of thousands of mourners of Copts gathered at Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo on Tuesday, March 20, for the funeral of the Coptic Orthodox Church’s leader Pope Shenouda III.

Security was tight, with dozens of police and armored vehicles positioned outside the Cathedral.

Pope Shenouda, who died on Saturday at the age of 88, promoted religious harmony, winning respect of the Muslim majority although the past few years witnessed a growth in sectarian tensions that he exerted a lot of efforts to contain them.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Archbishop Antonius Zarif:
"The most important principles left by the pope were love and tolerance. Even at times of crises related to national unity, he dealt with them with wisdom, love and tolerance. If love and tolerance preached by Pope Shenouda III prevail worldwide, I believe the whole world will live in peace."

Religious figures from several countries including a delegation of senior Catholics from the Vatican massed at the Orthodox Cathedral and priests prayed over Shenouda’s body which was lying in an open coffin with a golden miter upon his head.

Egypt’s Copts expressed their appreciation for the participation of the Muslims and their sympathy with Christians over the death of Pope Shenouda.

The man was considered a symbol for love, wisdom and tolerance.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Copt man at the Cathedral:
"Pope Shenouda was as dear as our eyes. We have come from furthest Upper Egypt to the Cathedral because of the death of Pope Shenouda. May he rest in peace! He was such a great saint. He was a blessing."

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Copt young man at the Cathedral:
"If we talked about the Pope all our life we wouldn’t give him his due. He was really our leader, guidance, godfather, and everything in our life."

SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) – Copt young man at the Cathedral:
"We appreciate the participation of our Muslim brothers. We are Egyptians. We're compassionate and kind people and we love one another. The issue of sectarian strife and suchlike things are baseless and they have no room in our hearts as Egyptians."

The prayers were led by Bishop Bakhomious, head of the Church of Bahaira, a district at the Nile Delta northern Cairo, who will temporally replace Shenouda for two months until a new leader is elected.

A delegation also from the ruling military council and several candidates for Egypt’s upcoming presidential elections attended the funeral.

Head of Egypt’s ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) Mohamed Hussein Tantawi declared Tuesday, March 20, as a national day of mourning over the death of Pope Shenouda III.

Following the funeral, the burial will take place at Wadi El-Natrun monastery in the desert northwest of Cairo according to the will of the late Pope.

Cairo, Egypt | March 17, 2012

Pope Shenouda III, Head of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church, died on Saturday, March 17, at the age of 88, after a long battle against illness.

The Coptic patriarch Pope Shenouda’s health has been deteriorating recently as he suffered from back and kidney problems for years and repeatedly travelled to the US for medical treatment. He was unable last Wednesday to give his weekly sermon at church.

The sound of weeping and prayers overwhelmed the Cathedral atmosphere where thousands of Copts gathered to lament the soul of the man whom they regard as a symbol for wisdom and sincerity.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Egyptian Copt at the Cathedral:
"There are no words that can make up for the value of this man. There are no words that can be said for losing such a big symbol. He was the cover sheltering all the Egyptian people, not only the Christians."

Shenouda was widely accepted by Christians and Muslims for his regular efforts to contain sectarian tensions following any incidents. He was also known for his support for the Palestinian rights in the long Middle East conflict and he was often described as an Arab nationalist by many observers.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Pope Shenouda III [archive]:
“We want to solve the problems. We do not want to make things more dangerous and difficult. We will celebrate the birth of the Christ (on January 7) regardless of any circumstances or issues.”

In 2001, he famously stated he would never visit Jerusalem unless he entered the country with a Palestinian visa along with Mohamed Sayed Tantawi, the late Grand Imam of Egypt’s foremost religious authority, Al-Azhar.

He was born on August 3, 1923, in Asiut, Upper Egypt, and he has been the Pope of Alexandria since November 1971, when assassinated President Anwar Sadat was in power.
