We can work together

· Patriarch Kirill to the Pope ·

The following is a translation of the address given by Patriarch Kirill in Russian.

Your Holiness, Your Excellencies, Dear Brothers and Sisters, Ladies and Gentleman,

For two hours we engaged in an open conversation, with full understanding of the responsibility we have towards our Churches, our people of faith, the future of Christianity and the future of human civilization. It was a conversation rich in content, which provided us the opportunity to listen and understand the other's position. And the outcome of the conversation permits me to affirm that currently the two Churches can cooperate, by defending Christians all over the world, and they can work together, with full responsibility, that there be no war, that human life be respected throughout the world, that the foundation of personal, familial and social morality be reinforced, through the Church's participation in the life of modern society, that it be purified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and that of the holy Spirit.
