The pastors visited Rome to hold working meetings with the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and with those dedicated to promoting justice and peace.

"Unity is both a gift and a mandate for the Church."

POPE FRANCIS
"Our meeting here today is one more step along the journey that marks the ecumenical movement, a blessed and hope-filled journey whereby we strive to live ever more fully in accord with the Lord’s prayer 'that all may be one'”

After the official speeches, the president gave the Pope a painting that evokes environmental care.

"This painting, is an artistic expression of the motto of our Assembly in Leipzig, where we can see, inspired by the Psalm, how the fruit of creation is shared by the people of God, it is for the welfare of all."

One of the fruits of this visit to the Vatican will be promoting various projects of social assistance with Catholics and Protestants working together. The idea is to focus more on what unites than what separates.
