East meets West: Pope Francis strives to unite the Holy Church.~

Papa Francis and the reunification of the Byzantine.

The Byzantine Empire was the predominantly Greek-speaking continuation of the eastern half of the Roman Empire during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Its capital city was Constantinople, originally known as Byzantium.
 
 
~~
 
 
Outside Rome’s inner circle, a little remarked objective of Holiness, one that he views as a very important part of what legacy he leaves, is the reunification of the Eastern and Western parts of The Church.

Pope Francis recently completed a three-day trip to Jordan, the West Bank and Israel, impressing his Israeli hosts as a cordial, modest and deeply spiritual man.

It could turn out, however, that the most important meeting the Pope held during his visit was not with the Palestinians or the Jews but with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, symbolic head of the world’s 300 million Orthodox Christians.~~

"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~
