  • Description

    POPE PAUL AND ORTHODOX ECUMENICAL PATRIARCH ATHENAGORAS HELD TALKS IN THE POPE'S PRIVATE LIBRARY YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) ON THE EVENTUAL UNION OF THEIR CHURCHES. AT THE SAME TIME FOUR ORTHODOX METROPOLITANS ACCOMPANYING THE PATRIARCH HELD DISCUSSIONS IN THE VATICAN'S SECRETARIAT FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY.

    THE BEARDED 81-YEAR-OLD PATRIARCH ARRIVED ON THURSDAY (26 OCTOBER) ON A THREE-DAY OFFICIAL VISIT TO ROME, THE FIRST BY AN ORTHODOX PATRIARCH OF CONSTANTINOPLE FOR FIVE CENTURIES.

    NO DETAILS OF THEIR TALKS WERE DISCLOSED. BUT IT WAS WIDELY UNDERSTOOD IN THE VATICAN THAT THEY HAD COVERED THE IMPLICATIONS FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY OF A TOUR WHICH THE PATRIARCH IS MAKING OF ORTHODOX LEADERS.

    THEY ARE ALSO BELIEVED TO HAVE DISCUSSED THE POSSIBLE ESTABLISHMENT OF A JOINT COMMISSION TO EXAMINE ROMAN CATHOLIC-ORTHODOX THEOLOGICAL DIFFERENCES.
