World Orthodox to participate in Ecumenical meeting in Bari

Postby Justice » Thu 26 April 2018 10:45 pm

Pope Francis will visit the southern Italian city in Bari on July 7 for an “an ecumenical encounter for peace,” the Vatican announced, focused on the situation in the Middle East.

Bari contains the relics of St. Nicholas, venerated by Catholics and Orthodox alike, making it a popular pilgrimage destination for many Eastern Christians.

Patriarch Kirill seems to have accepted this papal invitation by saying:

We have come forward with this initiative, knowing that the Christians cannot remain on the sidelines seeing what is happening in Syria,” Kirill told reporters at the time. “Ours was a significant peacemaking dialogue.”

There's also rumors that Patriarch Bartholomew will be apart of this ecumenical meeting seeing how he and the Pope meet very frequently.
