· Francis and Bartholomew sign common declaration ·
On Sunday afternoon, 25 May, at headquarters of the Apostolic Delegation in Jerusalem, Pope Francis and the Patriarch Bartholomew signed a common declaration in which they both reaffirmed their commitment to restoring full communion to the Church. “Like our venerable predecessors Pope Paul VI and Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras”, the declaration states, “who met here in Jerusalem fifty years ago, we too, Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, were determined to meet in the Holy Land.” “Our fraternal encounter today is a new and necessary step on the journey towards the unity to which only the Holy Spirit can lead us, that of communion in legitimate diversity.”
