Pope Tawadros II, 60, sits on the throne of St. Mark, the Coptic church's founding saint, wearing the papal crown, during an elaborate ceremony lasting nearly four hours, attended by the nation's Muslim prime minister and a host of Cabinet ministers and politicians, in the Coptic Cathedral in Cairo, Egypt, Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012. Tawadros did not address the televised ceremony, but had a brief speech read on his behalf by one of the church's leaders in which he pledged to work for the good of Egypt, with its Muslims and Christians alike.
