Statement of the Coptic Orthodox Church on the Theological Dialogue
Letter of Metropolitan Bishoy of Damiette to Metropolitan Damaskinos of Switzerland, November 1990
Dear Brother in Christ
Greetings in our Lord Jesus Christ, hoping to be always together in the charity of love and co-operation.
I would like to inform Your Eminence that the Holy Synod of the Coptic Orthodox Church, headed and presided by His Holiness Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark, on its meeting in Cairo on 12 November 1990, has accepted the Agreed Statement of our last commission, considering that the lifting of the anathemas will happen simultaneously as stated in the agreement which we have signed in Chambesy on 28 September 1990.
Also the same Synod has accepted the Agreed Statement of St Bishoy monastery (June 1989) in its previous meeting of June 1990.
With my best wishes to Your Eminence for the success of the Joint Commission in its mandate.
Yours in Christ
