Report: Pope looks with hope towards “blessed day” of full unity between Catholics and Orthodox

September 20, 2007

From Catholic News Agency:

The Holy Father has sent a message to the 10th Inter-Christian Symposium, dedicated to dialogue between Catholics and Orthodox. Pope Benedict XVI said that although Christian unity is not yet perfect, we all look with hope towards “the blessed day” of full communion in order to celebrate the one Eucharist.

(…)

The Holy Father said the symposium would contribute to “to upholding and corroborating the real — though imperfect — communion that exists between Catholics and Orthodox, so that we may reach that fullness which will one day enable us to concelebrate the one Eucharist.” “And it is to that blessed day that we all look with hope, organizing practical initiatives such as this one,” the Pope added.
