Pope and Patriarch, 1964
Yesterday’s meeting of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew with Pope Francis in Jerusalem marked the 50th anniversary of the 1964 meeting of Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras with Pope Paul VI. Technology in those days wasn’t as advanced as it is now, but there are good records of the meeting.
