Pope to Russian Orthodox Church: Let us pray, so that everything can get accomplished

2015-06-15

"Good morning, your Holiness.”

It was a meeting between Pope Francis and Metropolitan Hilarion from the Russian Orthodox Church. 

With the help of a translator, the head of the Department of External Church Relations, met with the Pope, for a brief meeting. After their one on one discussion, the Pope met the rest of the delegation, some of whom work directly with Cardinal Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. 

Even though it was a closed door meeting, the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the role Russia plays in it, was surely discussed. Especially in light of President Putin's recent visit with Pope Francis. 

"Let's pray so that everything can get accomplished.” 

As a gift, Hilarion gave the Pope a Russian icon of Jesus. 

"It's a replica of an ancient Russian icon, of Our Savior.” 

Worldwide, there are an estimated 150 million Russian Orthodox Christians.
