As Christians in Egypt continue to brace themselves for more jihad attacks. Minya churches canceled on Sunday the second mass, holding only a brief one ... for first time in 1,600 years!

Priest Selwanes Lotfy of the Virgin Mary and Priest Ibram monastery in Degla, south of Minya, said, "We did not hold prayers in the monastery on Sunday for the first time in 1,600 years."

"Supporters of deposed President [Mohamed Morsy] destroyed the Virgin Mary and Priest Ibram monastery, which includes three churches, one of which is an archaeological site. One of the extremists wrote on the monastery wall 'donate to the martyrs' mosque,'" Lotfy added.

Meanwhile, in other news involving the "religion of peace" in Egypt over the weekend, after torching a Franciscan school, Islamists paraded three nuns on the streets like "prisoners of war" before a Muslim woman offered them refuge. Two other women working at the school were sexually harassed and abused as they fought their way through a mob (Much more at link).
