May 17, 2014: “Beyond being an important anniversary, how significant will this meeting
in Jerusalem be” said Cardinal Kurt Koch, in an interview in the Vatica, speaking
about the visit of Pope Francis to Holy Land.
Cardinal Kurt Koch,the president
of the Pontifical council for Christian unity said that it’s very important to commemorate
the first meeting between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagorus, it’s the beginning
of the dialogue. Now we have 50 years of dialogue of love and dialogue of truth and
it’s clear that this visit of Pope Francis cannot resolve all the problems of the
dialogue of truth, but it will deepen the friendship and the brotherhood, the fraternal
relations between the Catholic Church of Rome and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
said that that Pope Francis has many deep relations with the Jews and Muslims in
Argentina and recalled the recent visit of the 15 Jews, 15 muslims and 15 Catholics
to Jerusalme and wished to visit the Holy father. The 3 dimensions, the ecumenical,
the relations with Jews and interreligious dimension also with the Muslims said is
a beautiful idea.
