Our times are not very different from those of the early Christians, leading Orthodox prelate says
June 30, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Metropolitan Emmanuel of Chalcedon led the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople’s delegation to the Vatican for the celebration of the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul. He is the second-ranking hierarch in the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
Referring to the two most recent papal encyclicals ( Laudato si’ and Fratelli tutti), Metropolitan Emmanuel said that he sees “in these two texts of Pope Francis an opportunity for dialogue, but above all for ecumenical cooperation. Christian unity is about protecting the environment and caring for others.”
