Coptic Orthodox Bishop attends Traditional Latin Mass

Bishop Arsany (or Arsenios), the Coptic Orthodox Bishop for the Netherlands, attended today a Sung Mass  (1962 Missal) celebrated at the Sint-Agneskerk in Amsterdam, where a personal parish dedicated to the Traditional Latin Mass is under the care of the FSSP. He might not be the first Orthodox prelate to attend a TLM in recent years, but as far as I know he is the first one to do so while seated on a throne inside the sanctuary.

Afterwards he gave a talk in the church rectory about the persecution of Christians in the Middle East. 

Many thanks to Mr. Jack Oostveen for the photographs and for the information. The Coptic Bishop's attendance at Mass and his talk were announced yesterday on the website of the Sint-Agneskerk
