Article summary: 

Coptic Orthodox Pope Shenouda III has canceled his annual visit to the country’s monasteries during Easter due to health problems.

Article full text: 

Every Easter the pope performs the Friday of Final Fasting, in the Anbā Bīshūy Monastery in Wādī al-Naṭrūn. He then goes on to visit the surrounding monasteries, performing the Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday prayers.

Last week, the pope suffered a health crisis, on April 6, 2011, only minutes before he was due to deliver his weekly sermon in the 'Abāsīyah St. Mark Cathedral and was transferred to the al-Sālam Hospital.
