Pope meets with organization that builds bridges between Catholics and Orthodox

2014-10-24

Speaking once again on ecumenism, Pope Francis meet with some members of the Orientale Lumen Foundation, who were led by Metropolitan  Kallistos of Diokleia.

This American group works to bring Catholic and Orthodox Churches closer through conferences and publications.

In his speech, Pope Francis highlighted that ecumenism isn't possible without internal renewal.

POPE FRANCIS
"Every Christian pilgrimage is not just a  geographical trip, but above all an opportunity to start a way of internal renewal, always towards Christ the Lord, who gives an origin to faith and who fulfills it.”

After his address, the Pope greeted the members and exchanged gifts. Each member of the group had prepared one for him.

- "The Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in Spanish.”
- "Ah, in Spanish?”

But without a doubt, one of the most unlikely gifts was this: a mug.

The members of the Orientale Lumen Foundation were on pilgrimage in Rome. The Pope asked them to pray for his next meeting with the  Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I in Turkey in November.
