    I met both PATRIARCHS in person. They both are very humble and friendly. In terms of their administration and incarnation skills difference it shouldn’t be that much of different. Both are from the same generation and same backgrounds in terms of schooling. Although, they might have some different leadership’s skills, their differences will not have any negative effect on the religion. If there is any exceptional contrast between them, it would be about their looks and their clothes. For example, Abune Mathias wears black color and he is handsome; on the other hand, Abune Paulos liked to wear white.

    It is not good to talk about a dead person. Though Abune Paulos was my spiritual father my heart was bleading when ever i think of him. How a father of Christians tell go out and go away 100s of students who run to church (to him) and asked him food and shelter? I am sure even davil can’t do that, if some one submitted to him (tenish aganeniku meselegn). Above all my biggest problem with him that, it is only during his administration that Church fathers (papasatoch) were bitten by adegegna bozenes (many suspect they could be security personnel). This happened never in the history of our church, except the extremist Muslim leg regime of Yodit Gudit and Geragn Mohamed. Fashit Mosoloni tried to corrupt church fathers, but failed. though some bands such as the father of—-had over taken the job instead.

    Abune Pualos never cared about the mass killing of woyane in addis in 2005. he ordered church not hold any prayer that time. How a church father order church followers not hold prayer (Mihela) when something big happen in the country?
    When you come to corruption, racism—our church under his leadership has registered one of the darkest era.

    he simply copy and past what woyane did for its politics such as exchanging zonal and district leaders and policy from one place to another before they adaprt to the situation and get associated to the local people. Paulos also displace and move church leader frequently before they networked to local communities and church followers. Some times our church used to get more than 4 leaders in one year—confusing.

    I have no idea why Woyane cadre bark at D/n. I am sure they new history less than him. I knew he read lot and in most cases talk based on facts.
