THE 6TH INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION FOR ORTHODOX-ANGLICAN DIALOGUE VISITS THE PATRIARCHATE
On Friday, the 6th/19th of September 2014, the 6th International Commission for Dialogue between Orthodox and Anglicans visited the Patriarchate, after having venerated at the Holy Sepulcher and at the Church of the Resurrection of the Lord.
The Dialogue Commission was received by H.B., Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem, and Hagiotaphite Fathers.
His Beatitude praised the effort to carry on the Dialogue and wished that the All-Holy Spirit illuminate their work towards mutual understanding and rapprochement in the benefit of the faithful adhering to both Churches.
Patriarch Theophilos went on to underline the work undertaken by the Patriarchate as regards the safekeeping of the All-Holy Sites of Veneration, as well as the protection and pastoral custody of Christians in the Holy Land.
Partakers in the Dialogue, mainly Bishops and priests, thanked His Beatitude for receiving them and also for attending, the day before, the opening of their deliberations. They also asked for His blessing and prayers towards fruitful and advantageous decisions.
