A blind folded altar boy choosing by lot has selected Bishop Tawadros of Beheira to be the 118th Pope and Lord Archbishop of the Great City of Alexandria and Patriarch of all Africa on the Holy Apostolic Holy See of St Mark the Evangelist and Holy Apostle.
The 4 Nov 2012 selection took place at Cairo’s St Marks’ Cathedral in Cairo and began with the reading of the names of the three finalists selected last week by the church’s synod of bishop and lay council by acting pope, Archbishop Pachomios. The names were then written on three pieces of paper and placed in a black box that was sealed with red wax.
