Coptic Synaxarium (Coptic Orthodox Calendar)

20 Toot
(The Twentieth Day of the Blessed Month of Tute)

 

The Departure of pope Athanasius the Second, the Twenty-Eighth Patriarch of the See of St. Mark

On this day of the year 512 A.D., the righteous father St. Athanasius II, 28th patriarch of the See of St. Mark, departed. This father was the steward of the churches of Alexandria. When the holy father Abba Peter III departed, the bishops, elders and people agreed to ordain him patriarch for what was known of his Orthodox faith and knowledge.

    He was a pious man, filled with the Holy Spirit and faith. When he became patriarch, he shepherded the flock of the Lord Christ exceedingly well, and he protected them from the snatching wolves with his teachings and prayers.

    He sat on the episcopal throne for three years and nine months, then departed in peace.

His prayers be with us. Amen
