Toast by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew at the Dinner Hosted by His Holiness Pope Francis (Jerusalem, May 25, 2014)

This meal comes at the end of a long journey, which began for Your Holiness at the West and for our Modesty in the East.

Speech by Pope Francis During The Holy Sepulchre Ecumenical Celebration (Jerusalem – 25.05.2014)

In this Basilica, which all Christians regard with the deepest veneration, my pilgrimage in the company of my beloved brother in Christ, His Holiness Bartholomaios, now reaches its culmination. We are making this pilgrimage in the footsteps of our venerable predecessors, Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras, who, with courage and docility to the Holy Spirit, made possible, fifty years ago, in this holy city of Jerusalem, an historic meeting between the Bishop of Rome and the Patriarch of Constantinople.

Address by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew at The Concelebration with His Beatitude Patriarch Of Jerusalem, Theophilos at The Church Of Our Lord’s Resurrection (25 May 2014)

We also, together with our brother Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic world, have come to this place in humility and gladness, and with fear and trembling, to experience a small taste of the mystery of the divine commandment “that they may be one”, the mystery of prayer and service and the journey that the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches have taken together after centuries of alienation these past fifty years, which have been a new period of dialogue for both sides. In this dialogue, we pray for divine illumination that we may not fall into error, without stumbling in word, and that we may be delivered from the errors of division, hatred, persecution, genocide, and racism.
