Pope Francis being blessed by Patriarch Bartholemew

Pope Francis asked the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I to “bless me and the Church of Rome” at the Orthodox Church of St. George in Istanbul. You can see him receive his blessing in the photo above. Francis said, “The one thing that the Catholic Church desires and that I seek as Bishop of Rome…is communion with the Orthodox Churches.” Read his remarks from Vatican Radio here: I Seek Communion with Orthodox Churches. Watch the video here:
