Coptic Orthodox Pope Asks Pope Francis to Unify Date For Easter.
In an effort to set a single date for all Christian Churches to celebrate Easter, Pope Tawadros II of the Coptic Orthodox Church has sent a letter of request to Pope Francis.
The apostolic nuncio to the Arab Republic of Egypt, Archbishop Paul Gobel, responded to the request yesterday by inviting the patriarch to send a representative of the Coptic Church to the next assembly of the Synod of Catholic bishops, to be held in October and dedicated to the theme of the family, reported Fides.
Unifying the dates of the Easter celebration is felt with particular urgency in North Africa and the Middle East because often churches and Christian communities live together in the same areas, but each has a different Easter date depending on whether it follows the Julian or Gregorian calendar.

There are many benefits of using the came calendar all over the Word. But keep in mind that Jesus the Messiah did not use Pope Gregory’s calendar, nor the Calendar introduced by Roman Emperor Julius Caesar in 45 B.C.
The Biblical calendar is the Hebrew calendar. The festival of Passover is every year celebrated on 14 nisan. Jesus celebrated passover inline with the Hebrew calendar.
The Church Council in Nikaea in 325 A.D was the first gathering of Bishops who stated to ban the festivals of Judaism. Later, the claimed “Church” moved deeper into Replacement theology, bigotry and anti-semitism.
Why is the use of calendar important?
The blood moon occurred in April 2014, in the heavens above Jerusalem. This was a sign that could easily be understood by all who read the Hebrew Biblical calendar.
The day of the Biblical passover is a non-event, for all who obey the papacy. The Pope is the lawless man, who changed the set time. Just as God of the Bible explained through his prophet Daniel.
Please focus on the events that take place in Jerusalem, and be a proper Messianic proselyte to Judaism. Than you will understand what the Messiah is doing in our time.
