Egypt update

As evening draws in across a hot Cairo, the heat of protest continues. In Tahrir Square anti Morsi protesters are out in their thousands. Whilst elsewhere in Nasr City pro-Morsi people have been bused in to rally for the President. This is just the build up.

Priests and people ask that we join them in prayer for peace and social justice, with religious freedom and conscience respected.

One young Catholic Copt in Zaytoun just told me: "I love God. I love my country of Egypt. Please be strong with us in faith and hope."
