Pope holds Mass on Tuesday for the martyrs of Egypt in Libya



Pope Tawadros II is holding a mass on Tuesday at noon at the St. Mark Cathedral in Abbassiya in tribute to the Egyptian Coptic Christians that were killed by IS in Libya.
 
The pope requested bishops to hold masses at the churches in the hometowns of the victims for three days.
 
The 21 men killed were fisherman, who like many Egyptians travel to Libya despite warnings against the instability in search of work.
