Funeral Held for Abune Paulos at Tadias Magazine
No details of his death were made available. He had been receiving treatment for an undisclosed illness. Upon his release, Abune Paulos fled to the US, where he spent several years in exile. Shortly after, the Patriarch, Abuna Merkorios, was dethroned under disputed circumstances. The controversial process led to the election of Abune Paulos as head of the Coptic Church in Abune Merkorios and his supporters went into exile, establishing a rival synod in the United States. Many credit the Patriarch for championing the cause of the victims of the military regime.
Coptic Orthodox Church participates in funeral of Abune Paulos
His family was long associated with the Abba Garima Monastery near the town, and he entered the monastery as a young boy as a deacon trainee, eventually taking monastic orders and being ordained a priest. He was sent to study at the St. In , his education was interrupted by a summons from Patriarch Abune Tewophilos , and returned to Addis Ababa shortly after the revolution that toppled Emperor Haile Selassie. He was anointed a bishop along with four others, assuming the name and style of Abune Paulos, and given responsibility for ecumenical affairs by the Patriarch. But because the Patriarch had named these new bishops without the permission of the new Derg communist junta, all five men were arrested, and the Patriarch was eventually executed.
