Two Popes

Pope Tawadros II, the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Egypt, met with Pope Francis at the Vatican yesterday. The two Popes stressed the need for Christian unity, ecumenical dialogue, and reconciliation. The increasing secterian violence against Coptic Christians in Egypt weighed heavily on both men.  Pope Francis quoted St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians saying, “If one member suffers, all suffer together, if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” Read the article from Catholic News Agency here: Pope stresses urgency of Christian unity at Vatican.  For more, read Pope Francis’ remarks on Vatican Radio: Pope Francis Welcomes Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros.
