Coptic Cathedral

With all the turmoil going on in Egypt, it is sad to see the Copts caught in firing lines. I see churches from the 2nd century burning to the ground. I see Muslims holding hands protecting churches. And here in beautiful Johannesburg far from the madding mobs, I found a Coptic Orthodox Cathedral, See of Saint Mark. It was over a year since I went to a Coptic wedding on the lawns the Union Buildings in Pretoria which would have made Hendrik Verwoerd spin in his grave and here in leafy peaceful ex Whites Only Parkview is this cathedral. If I remember correctly Verwoerd used to live in Parkview.
