  • [01] Archbishop welcomes visit to Vatican

    Archbishop Christodoulos of Athens and All Greece on Saturday welcomed his meeting with Pope Benedict at the Vatican last week, the first visit to the Holy See by a head of the Greek Orthodox church.

    "The visit bore fruit, turning a new page in relations between the two churches and inaugurating a new era," Christodoulos told reporters shortly before leaving Rome for Greece, and after a visit to the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.

    "I appreciate the exceptional honours that were bestowed on myself and on my delegation, which often exceeded the Holy See's strict formalities," he added.

    In a separate statement at the Vatican, Cardinal Walter Casper described the archbishop's visit as a good step forward.

    The cardinal also underlined cooperation between the two churches on social, cultural and political issues, making special note of Apostle Paul's establishment of the Church of Greece.
