Pope receives Greek Orthodox delegation
March 25, 2014
Pope Francis has received in audience a Greek Orthodox delegation led by Bishop Agathangelos of Fanarion, the director general of the Apostoliki Diakonia.
The Apostoliki Diakonia promotes Orthodox pastoral and cultural activities in Greece and collaborates with the Holy See in some cultural matters. L’Osservatore Romano characterized the meeting as "an opportunity to relaunch commitment to ecumenism."
During their six-day visit to Rome, Bishop Agathangelos and his delegation are also meeting with officials from the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, the Vatican archives and library, and Libreria Editrice Vaticana, the Vatican’s publishing house.
