CNS - Fifty years later, pope and patriarch meet again in Jerusalem
JERUSALEM (CNS) -- Half a century after
a historic encounter between their
predecessors, Pope Francis and
Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew met in
the same place to seek inspiration for
Christian unity at the site of Christ's
death and resurrection.
"We need to believe that, just as the stone before the tomb was cast aside, so, too, every obstacle to our full communion will also be removed," the pope said May 25 during a prayer service at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
