Countless miracles occurred and continue to occur to this day through the intercession of Pope Kyrillos VI. The Holy Synod of the Coptic Orthodox Church headed by H.H. Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria declared at the end of its meeting on June 20, 2013, in Cairo, Egypt, the official recognition by the Church of Pope Kyrillos VI as Saint. His name is to be included in the Coptic Orthodox Synaxarium, mentioned in the Mass among the Saints of the Church, and has churches built and named after his name.
