Pope salutes Armenian prelate's work for Christian unity

November 26, 2008

Pope Benedict XVI made a point of welcoming Catholicos Aram I, the head of the Armenian Apostolic Church in the Middle East, to his public audience on November 26. Thanking the Armenian prelate for his energetic work in the field of ecumenism, the Pope said that his visit to Rome "is a significant occasion for strengthening the bonds of unity already existing between us." The Pontiff invoked the intercession of St. Gregory the Illuminator, who brought the faith to Armenia, to assist the quest for full Christian unity.
