CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican is weighing plans for a possible meeting of Pope Francis and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill, the Reuters news service reports, citing Vatican sources.

The proposed meeting could take place in Jerusalem, in conjunction with the Pope’s trip to Lebanon, which is to take place in June.

Pope Francis met with Patriarch Kirill in Cuba in 2016: the first-ever encounter between a Roman Pontiff and a Russian Orthodox Patriarch. Plans for a second meeting were reported earlier this year, but the possibility was complicated by the Russian prelate’s support for his country’s invasion of Ukraine.
