    Either a bishop, Patriarch, Pope, Ecumenical Patriarch. How would you greet that person? With a kiss, reverence?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I call my local Bishop 'Bish'. Thats true! Plus, i have had several words with him in the past.

    Not a matter of disrespecting him though. Diocese has had quite a few issues with his 'management' shall we say.

    In Arabic, we address him as "Sayedna" (سيدنا - Our Master); in English "Your Grace".

    Not sure whether or not this answers your question...

    Yes, it does. Do Coptics do reverence?

    I would greet him like anyone else, they are not special. A better question is would I agree with one? Prolly not. I don't agree with denominations and there questionable traditions. Not trying to be harsh or contentious about it though.

    So a handshake? A kiss?

    For bishops, "My Lord." For presiding bishops or archbishops, "Your Grace." A handshake, ring-kissing, or nothing of that sort is a matter of personal preference and the particular church involved.

    A handshake is perfectly fine.

    With a smack in the face. Just kidding.
    I'd definitely inquire about all the child abuse allegations and cover ups though to the Pope.
